Food and Drink first in North East Derbyshire

Award-winning gastro pubs, fabulous farm shops and passionate producers – you can discover them all in North East Derbyshire!

To showcase the amazing variety of food and drink we have on offer in the district, North East Derbyshire District Council has launched its first ever Food and Drink Trail to tie in with English Tourism Week (15-24 March).

Funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the trail highlights the amazing food and drink venues and makers across NE Derbyshire, that are bursting with flavour, ideas and innovation.

Cllr Jayne Barry, Portfolio holder for Growth at North East Derbyshire District Council, said: “I think people will be surprised by the sheer variety of food and drink businesses we have in the district.

“There are so many delicious eats and treats to discover and they are right here on our doorstep!”

Four skilled and experienced ambassadors will help lead the project - Chris Mapp of the Tickled Trout, Barlow, Mark Aisthorpe of the Bulls Head, Holymoorside, Stephen Thompson of Moss Valley Fine Meats, Norton, and Rowan Adlington of Figaro, Wingerworth.

They are part of 17 businesses to join the trail so far, however it will continue to grow, with the hope of 100 being added by the end of the year.

The project ties in with our Council Plan objective – ‘to help create a place where people enjoy spending time, develop and promote the local ‘offer’, and support existing and new businesses’.

It’s hoped the trail will lead to increased footfall and spend in the district, helping businesses to thrive.

You can view all the businesses taking part so far on our website. Just pick your favourite to find out more on our handy map or get out into the district and visit them all!

The trail stretches across the district and can be accessed by walking in hub areas such as Clay Cross and via car or public transport in other areas with businesses more spread apart.

All the businesses have been selected for their good reviews, quality and atmosphere.

If you are a food and drink business based in NE Derbyshire and are interested in joining the trail, contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

It’s currently FREE to join! You also get free promotion on the council’s website and social media and the chance to build networks and share opportunities. All businesses taking part will also get stickers to display in their windows, to let visitors know they are part of the trail.
