The Staffordshire Peak District is famous for breath-taking scenery and attractions but there are plenty of places for a tasty treat too!

Here are five great restaurants and cafes to try after you've worked up an appetite on a thrilling Alton Towers rollercoaster or a challenging cycle ride up Gun Hill.

The Three Horseshoes Country Inn

For a hearty meal on the edge of The Roaches, try our Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year, The Three Horseshoes Country Inn.

This award-winning eaterie, which also holds two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence, offers great food, a relaxed atmosphere, rustic features like oak beams, and stunning views of rocky Peak District outcrops.

The restaurant has recently undergone a major refurbishment, but while the decor may have changed, you can still guarantee a great selection of modern dishes and traditional favourites made with the freshest locally sourced ingredients.

And their themed menus, like the Steak Night on Thursdays and the Senior Citizens Lunch Menu, also offer great value for money.

Greenway Hall Restaurant

Whether you are a member of Greenway Hall Golf Club or not, you can savour a steak or relish a roast at the Greenway Hall Restaurant.

Soak in the wonderful vistas across the golf course as you devour classic British dishes with a contemporary twist, whether that's for breakfast, lunch or dinner seven days a week.

Renowned for great customer service and value, the Greenway Hall Restaurant offers the finest quality, whether you desire a homemade gourmet burger, a locally sourced fillet steak, or one of the chef's mouth-watering signature dishes.

Everything on the menu is freshly prepared on site using the best ingredients, with a commitment to using local suppliers as much as possible.

The Stafford Arms

A 16th Century inn, nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Bagnall, The Stafford Arms is the perfect end to a relaxing countryside stroll. 

Whether you dine beside the roaring log fires of the Stables Dining Rooms, or in the airy, spacious extension, you're sure to enjoy the good home-cooked food, using locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible, washed down with a fine wine or carefully chosen cask ale.

There's also an extensive vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu for those with special dietary requirements, while the membership scheme offers 10% discounts to loyal diners.

The Golden Keg

If you're looking for an Indian feast there are few restaurants to compete with The Golden Keg on the border of the Staffordshire Peak District and Stoke-on-Trent.

Alongside the traditional Indian favourites there's the speciality tawa tak-a-tak, or street food curry, plus Golden Keg fusions like Indian fish n chips and the Bombay Badboy Ribeye Steak!

There's also plenty of choice if you're yearning for something closer to home, with the all-you-can-eat carvery to dive into every Sunday.

With a wide range of tantalising treats to choose from, backed up with great service and special offers, The Golden Keg is one of the Staffordshire Peak District's most memorable dining experiences.

The Cottage Kitchen Country Cafe

With a menu celebrating all the area has to offer, including cheese from the Staffordshire Cheese Company and ales from Staffordshire Brewery, this charming countryside cafe is a great place to unwind after a thrilling adventure.
