Looking for The Best Restaurants in Derbyshire? Visit Our Award Winning Gastro Pub!

When it comes to eating out across Derbyshire, it’s fair to say that there is quite a bit of choice. However, if you’re looking to eat somewhere with a family atmosphere and with delicious dishes guaranteed, it makes sense to head towards a location that’s been widely recognised for its fantastic menus!


The Tickled Trout in Barlow has quickly emerged as one of the leading names in traditional pub grub over the past few years. We’re proud to have been recognised by multiple award bodies in recent past - along with a wonderful reception from our regular patrons, we’re always thrilled to get feedback.

But what is it that makes the Tickled Trout such a great location for great food and family days out?


An award-winning location

The team at the Tickled Trout cares deeply about making sure our menus offer more than just a fantastic range of choice. Our kitchen team puts incredible effort into each dish they design and create. Therefore, if you are looking for genuinely high quality meals at pub-friendly prices, we’re always pleased to go above and beyond.

We’ve been recognised in Derbyshire Life for our attention to culinary detail! In 2018, we were the proud recipient of Restaurant of The Year and Chef of The Year - meaning we delight pub goers and critics alike. We’re also pleased to be a big winner at the Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards in 2018, too.

We then went on to win Love Chesterfield Pub of the Year in 2021!

Since that time, we’ve developed our menus and atmosphere further to home in on what our visitors and regulars really want. The Tickled Trout is famous for its welcoming atmosphere and its tasty cuisine - meaning the moment you visit us, it’ll become clear why we’ve swept the awards in recent past!


Gastro dining inspired by the Peak District

Our fantastic location in the heart of Derbyshire allows us to provide a resting point for many people who are exploring the wider Peak District, as well as the Derbyshire Dales. We even play host to two luxury self-catering cottages, too!

Leaning into our position as a fantastic stopping point for families and ramblers exploring the best the district has to offer, we understand the local need for hearty food and familiar drinks.

We therefore make a point to really show off the best of local produce and tastes. The Tickled Trout presents just a snapshot, or a taste, of the cuisine the area has to provide. However, our team makes sure to give you a brilliant sampling of the ‘Greatest Hits’ - leaving you with warm, filling memories of trips across the Peaks for years to come.

We also want to make sure that our guests always have a range of choice when they arrive to drink and dine. Not only do we ensure that we provide a delicious selection of traditional, local favourites, but we also know what drives our visitors’ appetites - why not come along and take a look for yourself?


A welcoming atmosphere that never wears out

Above all, over eight years on, we’re thrilled to continue providing an authentic pub grub experience to all who come through our doors. While we’re award winning cuisine creators behind the scenes, we’re a traditional pub through and through front of house. With a family spirit and classic decor - as well as a pub quiz or two - you can count on the Tickled Trout to become your go-to for warming food and tasty tipples no matter where you are on your journey into Derbyshire.

Derbyshire is a wide, wild and wonderful county full of exciting surprises just waiting for you to uncover. The Tickled Trout exists as that little slice of home that you can keep coming back to for traditional fare. If you’re exploring somewhere new and are pining for a taste of home, then we want to be the first to provide you with familiar sights, tastes, smells and more.

If you’re keen to really make the most of the Tickled Trout’s fantastic space, you can also book our exclusive conference room. It’s great for parties, meetings, gatherings and more.
