The Best Real Ale Pubs in Derbyshire: Why Choose the Tickled Trout?

Real ale pubs are a British staple – and thankfully, there are plenty to choose from. However, with a lot of choices can come lots of confusion! How can you possibly choose between so many options? 

Well, a good pub should provide more than a few things for the perfect experience – and it’s quality you should be looking for in your ales as much as different types! If you’re looking for great real ale pubs, be sure to check out the Tickled Trout. 

Hand-picked ales to cater to all tastes

Finding a real ale that tickles your tastebuds isn’t always easy. There have been hundreds of new ales pop up since a real ‘boom’ only a few years ago, and at the Tickled Trout, we work with local breweries and brands to bring together a unique selection of drinks.

As you should demand from the best real ale pubs near me, we only ever work with those local breweries and ale experts in Derbyshire and Yorkshire with proven track records. That’s award-winners, hidden gems, fan favourites and more. Beyond this, we always strive to offer you a varied selection of different ales. Things get boring, otherwise – and there’s always something new and refreshing available from talented ale experts nearby.

Derbyshire is real ale country, and Yorkshire have some great real ales too – and that’s why the team at the Tickled Trout are always pleased to present what we know to be the best in local taste.

Fine dining as standard.

When you think of classic pub grub, you’ll probably think of a good roast dinner, meat pies, steak and chips, and, of course, local real ale. But why can’t pub food be fine dining, too? Why can’t it cater to different tastes and dietary requirements?

The Tickled Trout is more than just one of the top real ale pubs in the area. We’ve quickly become a prime purveyor of delicious pub grub, offering a raft of homemade delicacies alongside various drinks.

Our chefs make everything from scratch using only the best local ingredients. That way, you know exactly where the food in front of you comes from and can taste the best ingredients from the area. Even the fish we serve will have been caught the same day and delivered straight to the Tickled Trout!

What’s more, we’re happy to provide meals that cater to different dietary needs. Take a look at our menus and ask about gluten-free or vegan meals, for example, and enjoy a pub meal with a difference.
