Steve the Chef


Standing on the boundary of the Peak District National Park, the Robin Hood is the only remaining pub in the village of Rainow (the Rising Sun and the Highwayman having given up the unequal struggle). The Robin Hood is a very pleasant, cozy, pub with a good sized restaurant serving good food. It is a Punch Taverns house.

Four B&B rooms. All with en-suite, TV, coffee and tea making facilities.


Six good cask ales; Black Sheep is the regular, two others from the pub company's list and three local beers including beers from Macclesfield brewers Red Willow and Storm.


Good food at lunch and dinner. A slightly restricted choice at lunch time but you are sure to find something you'll like. Selection of sandwiches also available at lunch time.

Other facilities:

Occasional theme nights including bands and quizzes. Popular children's play area at the top of the car park.

Four En-suit Double or Twin bedrooms at reasonable prices make this an ideal over-night location for scenic breaks in the Peak Park!

The entrance to the car park is in the lane off the main road.
