We have been to the Fishermans Rest several times with friends. We stay at a nice caravan park a couple of minutes walk away. What a gem of a find. The first time we went to the pub the friendly landlord informed us that they don't do meals but that we could have a takeaway delivered and we could eat... More

Called in for a drink after a Mothers Day stroll. Didn't eat, but food smelled lovely. Drinks were a very reasonable price, with plenty of interesting choices on draught. Good car park, clean loos, and nice beer garden. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Will certainly visit again.

Lovely pub on the outskirts of Belper. The outside has a combination of grassed area, patio and decking with fantastic country views. The pub itself is always spotless, nicely decorated and well maintained. There are always 4 real ales along with a range of ciders, lagers and wine on offer. There is no cooked food although cold cobs, pork pie... More

We go to a caravan site a two minute all from this pub. We always pay it a visit whilst there. The couple than run the pub are very friendly and are dog lovers, so needless to say you are always made welcome with your pooches. We went for New Years Eve with our 3 dogs and had a lovely... More

Lovely friendly pub, allows dogs which is a plus, dogs sometimes get a biscuit too, which they love. lots of places to sit, it does get a bit crowded sometimes, but a nice place to have a chat and a drink. We have not eaten here, for no other reason than we only go for an afternoon drink, the sport... More

We are stopping at a nearby Caravan site, so the Fishermans Rest is in walking distance. Beer is excellent, the Cider was delish. Had a ham cob each which was amazing. The friendliness of the landlord, staff and locals make visiting this pub a delight. Well worth a visit.

I always cycle past this place on my way into the Peak District and it always looked great. The decoration is really nice and welcoming, the owner friendly and talkative and there were plenty of drinks available. A really good selection of beer and wines. Apparently food is only served on Sundays, which is good as this is when we... More

Description
A traditional Derbyshire Country Pub. Perfectly kept Real Ales (4) and a range of Lagers, Ciders and top quality Wines.
We serve Butchers Snacks and made-to-order filled Cobs; on Sunday we offer Hot Roast Beef Cobs with Roasties and 'real' Gravy. Very much an Ale & Wine House serving 'snacks for drinkers' rather than offering a Restaurant offering.
We cater for Funeral Wakes, Christenings and Family Parties.
The Pub is very 'dog friendly' and boasts a large garden and sun terrace - the sun shines on the property all day and sets on the front of the Pub and the Terrace.
Classic pub games on offer - Darts, Dominoes, Table Skittles, Cribbage.
