user reviews of the Kelstedge Inn, Kelstedge

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

From Sept 2012 this pub has been run by the experienced ex landlord from the Rutland and Royal Oak in Chesterfield and there has been a general improvement all round. Now changed to "The Kelstedge" it seems to be even more restaurant orientated but the landlord was quite amenable to my not eating and just sampling his ale. Plenty of people dining on a Thursday afternoon, unlike my last visit a year ago when there was no-one in but us and the barmaid who was selling sour Abbot Ale. There are three regularly changed real local cask ales on tap. Food looked to be good quality. Prices were what you expect for a gastro pub but by no means excessive, eg £3.10 for Black Sheep Ale,- so good that I sampled 2 pints of
it. My mates gave their bagette sandwiches & chips 8 out of 10 points.

A largish pub, just off the main Matlock - Chesterfield road. Low beamed ceilings, and mainly geared to providing meals. My three hiking companions were pleased enough with the bargain 7.45 pensioners special - they had a moderately sized fish with moderately sized portions of chips & mushy peas followed by lemon sponge pudding which did indeed look tempting but the rest of the menu looked on the expensive side. Another mate had a sandwich & salad & extra chips, again a bit pricey for what it was.
Ale choice was dismal, comprising the ubiquitously awful John Smith's smooth bitter, a couple of the usual common lagers and Strongbow cider. Despite advertising cask ales, the only one available was Greene King Abbott ale. Now this is one of my favourites so I had a pint of this and immediately regretted it. It was off to the point of tasting sour. Abbott ale is normally consistently good everywhere so I don't know how they managed to get it as bad as this.Two of us persisted and drank most of it before mentioning it to the barlady who said that she would inform the manager.

Sorry, but I was unimpressed by the place.

NOW UNDER NEW AND VERY EXPERIENCED MANAGEMENT OF BILL AND JENNY SLACK EX NAG'S HEAD, NEWBOLD, CHESTERFIELD.
ENTIRELY NON-SMOKING, GOOD FOOD LUNCHTIMES AND EVENINGS, SMALL RESTAURANT. GOOD RANGE OF ALES. SIX ROOMS FOR B&B. VERY CONVENIENT FOR PEAK DISTRICT ATTRACTIONS.
