Bondholder voted Britain's best Summer pub

Bondholder Berkeley Inns is celebrating as The Cow at Dalbury Lees has been named at number one in the The Times Weekend supplement of 'Britain's 30 best summer pubs'

Re-opened in December 2017, after renovation and extension the Cow forms part of Berkeley Inns pub restaurant group.

The Cow topped the charts at number one with a fantastic review from travel writer Tom Chesshyre.

Talking about his stay at The Cow Tom wrote:  
"Enjoy a good pint of ale or a glass of fine wine while sitting on a milk churn converted into a bar stool at this jolly pub in the village of Dalbury Lees.  It's a perfect base for walkers: the Derbyshire and Peak District countryside is on your doorstep.  The dozen refitted rooms, each a decent size, have a pared-down style with reclaimed wood and lamps made from old machine parts (the owners have made ingenious use of reclaimed objects throughout).  The restaurant serves a tapas-style menu; I can recommend the pheasant casserole."

Commenting about the review Head of Group Business Development Amelia Horne said: "We're absolutely thrilled the hard work of our team has received national recognition from such a prestigious newspaper.  Our team are relentless in their quest for the exacting high standards that we have set and put their heart and soul into the establishment; to receive praise such as this from such a well-travelled and respected travel writer is amazing."

"Thank you also to the team at Derby Tourism who work tirelessly to promote Derby and Derbyshire as a place to visit and stay. It is by way of their introduction to such journalists that provide the opportunity for us to impress them with our Hotel and Restaurants"
