user reviews of the Barrel Inn, Bretton

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

Wrote the last review nearly 2 years ago. Only fair to pop in again to see if things have changed. - Actually, I didn't have much choice as it was on our hiking route at the right point or I wouldn't have bothered.
Mate forked out £5.25 for white supermarket bread ham sandwiches with the usual token gesture of a bit of shredded salad. Then an extra £2.60 for a medium sized bowl of chips, We get better sandwiches & salad provided for free at our local in Chesterfield on quiz nights.
I paid £3.76 for an indifferently tasting and soon to go flat pint of Marston's Pedigree. I dread to think what they charge for the Hobgoblin.
Nowt's changed, my previous review still accurate. About fifteen car touroids in though. Fools and their money are easily parted.

Yet another premier league member of the Peak District tourist honey traps. Condemned by its stunning location, it was inevitable that this pub would be corrupted by the moneyed car-borne tourist hordes who come here and like so many others lose its soul to profiteering. Expect a facade of a friendly welcome, masking indifference by employed staff. Expect to be processed rather than served, - somewhat slowly at busy times, and be given pretentiously described food and drink at inflated prices. You will have arrived by car rather than on foot or by bike. You will be well dressed and looking for a "genuine" peak district country pub experience. You will go away thinking that you have. You will be one of the lemming like touroids that have ruined a good many of the peak's pubs. (Ironically your money has also probably saved them from extinction too.) Just as the similar Monsal Head Hotel has its Pack Horse down the road so this one has the Bulls Head at Foolow. Go there for a slightly less sterile experience.
