Sam Pegg takes a visit to The Hyde Park Inn in Dronfield

I had high expectations from The Hyde Park Inn. They were winners of the Best Family-Friendly at the Westside Restaurant of the Year awards 2017 and are a favourite spot for the locals in Dronfield. It was instantly clear to see that it was a hearty pub with a welcoming atmosphere and I got that impression as soon as I entered in through the doors. It is nestled next to the most beautiful countryside with walks that can go on for miles and with a garden of its own, it houses stunning views for an afternoon pint. Dogs are welcomed, making it the perfect destination for any dog walker.


The staff were friendly and attentive, ensuring you had the best experience possible. With a vast selection of alcoholic beverages, including real ales, and an impressive array of dishes, there’s definitely something for everybody.


Excited to tuck in, I ordered the Bacon and Cheese Potato Skins (£4.95) and my dining companion opted for the Breaded Mozzarella Sticks (£4.95). Each starter came with a generous portion of fresh salad. As a whole it was perfectly sized to prepare you for the meal to come. Both dishes were full of flavour and the selection of other starters looked just as tasty.

For our main course there was a wide selection with a variety of wraps, burgers, salad, jacket potatoes, dishes from the grill, other mains and vegetarian dishes. After taking a portion of time to make a decision amongst the delicious choices, the Homemade Steak and Ale Pie of the Day (£9.25) and Chicken and Chorizo Skewers (£8.25) took our fancy. The quality of the food was exceptional and the flavours married together perfectly. The pie had a great depth of flavour with succulent steak and buttery pastry. The homemade pie is served with chips, peas (mushy or garden) and gravy – with a hint of Henderson’s Relish to accompany if you desire. For the price point, it left me surprised and excited to come back for another visit to try other dishes/maybe have that delicious pie one more time. My dining companion was amazed at the level of cooking with the chicken and chorizo skewers and I have to say, after tasting it myself, I agree! The time spent eating was time spent chatting and we found ourselves lost in conversation with the atmosphere within the pub being of a calming nature.

Onto the desserts, and to my surprise, unlike many other similar pubs there was the perfect selection to feast our eyes upon. Whenever Chocolate Fudge Cake with ice cream (£4.50) appears on the menu, it immediately appeals to me. After the dessert selection tempted my dining companion, he opted for Vanilla Ice Cream (£3.45) which arrived with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and a Cadburys flake. Both desserts did not disappoint and acted as the perfect end to a lovely, delicious meal.


The Hyde Park Inn host speciality evenings such as: Tapas Tuesday (2 for 1 on all the Tapas Menu from 4pm every Tuesday), Fish Friday (from 4pm every Friday, Fish and Chips available to take away Monday to Saturday), delicious Sunday Carvery (£8.95, served from 12noon – 6pm) and an all you can eat international buffet (£12.95 for adults and £6.95 for children). The atmosphere is just as you’d desire in that setting and the quality of food and service is exceptional, make sure you don’t miss out on all The Hyde Park has to offer. It definitely delivered.
