The Country Inn Offers

Award Winning
Local Food in a relaxing atmosphere

The Country Inn offers award winning food served in a relaxing atmosphere with Oak Beams, Open Fires and views over the Staffordshire Peak District.

You can expect fresh, seasonal ingredients with modern British Cuisines from their famous Signature Dishes to traditional favourites such as pies, steaks, gourmet burgers and Roasts. In order to deliver the very best we pride ourselves in being able to prepare and cook everything from fresh.
