Stopped in eyam before going up to the barrel and hey wow. The views from the front of the building is stunning.up on a high hill side looking over the derbyshire countryside its set out on its own about 60 mins walk to foolow and eyam but it is a hilly climb back.the rooms have great views at front of property and even the side of the side rooms even though they look over car park are surrounded by stunning countryside.if you don't stop here for B&B try going for a meal or a drink you will not be disappointed.

We decided on the Barrel as it had finally stopped raining and you could see for miles. There is quite a varied menu: choice of 6 starters,9 main courses and about 8 desserts. They do 4 varieties of Sunday roast dinner. In the past, we've had the roasts, mushroom risotto and today we had the steak and ale pie. Social distancing and mask wearing are well organised and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. A gathering of the Fraser Nash vintage car owners coincided with our visit,which was a bit of a treat. Service was quick and polite. Would definitely go back again.

My husband and I visited The Barrel Inn last year, it was highly recommended by a friend and it didn’t disappoint the food was amazing I had the lamb chops, it’s not something we have at home, I was first surprised at just how big they were, but wow I’ve never tasted chops that good ever! So going back we did wonder if our expectations would be met again, we booked our table for just after sunset we arrived early so we could watch the sun go down, we were very lucky, it was a clear evening and the view from the pub garden( your on a hill) you actually look over the pub was absolutely stunning. Even though it was a Sunday, they had other very tasty options on the menu, we both went for the Sunday Roast I had lamb my husband had beef we were both so happy we did it has to be in my top 3 places for a Sunday roast Ps the bakewell pudding is incredible Gary the manager is so warm and friendly you are made to feel like a old friend / local when visiting which gives this pub a special vibe , added to the mix warm lite fires you really don’t want to leave ,so we did go back (be rude not too 😉) for a second time, we had a lovely day out at Chatsworth House topped off with dinner on way home, again a wonderful meal that’s a far cry from pub grub I highly recommend this old pub on top of a peak , enjoy 😊

What an amazing pub, why have we not been before. Very well organised for Covid, polite and courteous staff and excellent food plus views to die for! Also, many thanks to all the staff who helped with first aid after my wife got injured on our walk - much appreciated. We will return again definitely.
