Tour de Peak District cafes, pubs (and snackshops too)


Clotted cream tea is common in many parts of the Cotswolds - and is a well-earned treat after a good ride! (Chiz Dakin)

All cyclists know that one of the really enjoyable things about cycling is that well-earned break in a café or pub. Whether it’s a coffee and cake during the ride or a pint and pie afterwards, a good watering hole can really help make a route memorable!

With than in mind, I’m trying to gather up information on refreshment stops on, or near enough to, the Tour de Peak Dist cycling route. These will primarily be cafés and pubs, however there are a few bakeries and a couple of ice cream parlours. I’ve also included a few grocery/convenience stores either for ease of location in large towns, or where there’s very little in the way of alternatives in more rural areas.

This is still somewhat of a work in progress. In particular:

  • Inclusion of a place does not mean I think it’s great – with the best will in the world I’ve not been able to visit every place. Nor is that likely for a good while yet. It just means I’m aware of its existence, it looks like it might be open at least part of the time a cyclist might be passing, and in some cases have actually visited it personally!
  • I’ve not checked any routes to/from places off-route. They may or may not require a main road or other awkward obstacle to be surmounted on the way!
  • For pubs – please remember opening hours may well be only lunch/dinner times – or not at all during the weekday daytimes.
  • For cafés and bakeries – some shut very early in the day!
  • I’m slowly trying to add notes of closed days and early closing/late opening, but this will take a good while yet. Even where this is listed you should check each place’s website for individual information before relying on it to be open as things can change between the time I get to keep this updated!
  • If there are any places I’ve missed or places that don’t work/aren’t good then please let me know – as well as the name and rough location of the place please also give me address and website for new listings or reason it’s not good if to be considered for de-listing. Thanks!
