ready for santa!

At The Old Dog, we offer local, unfussy quality food, drinks and service.  As an independent family business, we are proud of how our team work together to create a relaxing fun atmosphere when you visit us for all types of occasions, from a relaxing drink with friends in our courtyard to a special celebration or our popular Sunday Roast together as a family.

We are dog friendly at all times and weathers, there is no better sight than wet dogs drying out in front of our fires at this time of year.  It won't be long until our large outdoor area will be in full swing as the weather warms up as everyone relaxes a well earned drink after a walk or cycle or meeting up with friends and family before enjoying our freshly prepared food.

We are currently open five days a week opening hours from Wednesday to Sunday, opening at 11:00 for morning coffees and cake then with our kitchen opening fully at 12:00.   We recommend booking if looking to join us for food and can also book if you want drinks only. 

Soon we will launch our accommodation at The Old Dog once we finish renovating the flats above the pub.  We will have a 1 bed flat and also a 2 bed flat ready for you to stay in, we can't wait to bring the same Old Dog experience in a different way as you stay with us.

Come and visit us whether you live local to us in the Ashbourne area or whilst you explore the natural beauty of Dovedale, Thorpe Cloud and the Peak District.

BOOKINGS: Please use our Bookings Form to book a table or to enquire for event hire for large groups, we currently cater for up to 30 seated guests for private parties.
