The Barrel Inn located in the hamlet of Bretton (near Eyam in the Hope Valley, S32 5QD) is an historic Derbyshire pub and hostelry dating back to 1597. The pub itself is piped music-free, and serves locally-sourced, freshly cooked food, and local ale. Among local specialities served is the Derbyshire Oatcake – which is a whole meal. There is a real log fire in the fireplace. The pub is dog friendly. Located near the village of Eyam (the ‘plague village’) and high above the village of Foolow, the views from the front of the inn are spectacular and panoramic. There are good walking trails nearby in the Peak District.
