About Grouse & Claret

Situated centrally between Matlock and Bakewell stands the stately and historic Grouse and Claret of Rowsley.  Beautifully restored but adorned with many original 18th-century features, this relaxed pub and inn welcomes both business and leisure travellers.

The eight en-suite rooms vary in size and amenity from standard double to family-sized, all of them including the daily breakfast in their rates.

Hotel features comprise ample free parking and a popular on-grounds Caravan Park, offering 19 pitches with electrical and television hookups, not to mention breathtaking views of the lush natural surroundings.

Dine in the pub for classic full menu fare and a wide selection of ales, beers and frequently changing specials.
