"ONE SIP FROM HEAVEN"
We have recently been selected by The Sunday Times as one of 15 best country pubs.
"It has rhubarb bellinis instead of brown ale, and home-roasted almonds rather than pork scratchings. But don't be misled: the George has not lost touch with its roots. Emily Brighton is the third generation to pull a pump at this stout 400-year-old coach house, and she's retained the lime-washed walls and photos of lugubrious locals, adding only fresh flowers, church candles and a mighty fine steak and stilton pie. Out front, you'll find picnic sets right by the village green. The views hereabouts are straight from the I-spy book of the English countryside: tottering haystacks, tree-dappled meadows and (rather more surprisingly) Alstonefield's resident T rex. Expect to share a table with hikers and horsewomen - it's a short trot from here across dung-scented cow pasture to Dovedale, the prettiest valley in the peak district."
