Food and Drink first in North East Derbyshire

Food and Drink first in North East Derbyshire

TO showcase the amazing variety of food and drink on offer in the area, North East Derbyshire District Council has launched its first ever Food and Drink Trail.

Funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the trail highlights the amazing food and drink venues and makers across NE Derbyshire.

Coun Jayne Barry, Portfolio holder for Growth at North East Derbyshire District Council, said: “I think people will be surprised by the sheer variety of food and drink businesses we have in the district. There are so many delicious eats and treats to discover and they are right here on our doorstep!”

Four skilled and experienced ambassadors will help lead the project: Chris Mapp of the Tickled Trout, Barlow; Mark Aisthorpe of the Bulls Head, Holymoorside; Stephen Thompson of Moss Valley Fine Meats, Norton; and Rowan Adlington of Figaro, Wingerworth.

They are among 17 businesses to join the trail so far – with the hope that 100 will be added by the end of the year.

The project ties in with the Council Plan objective: ‘to help create a place where people enjoy spending time, develop and promote the local ‘offer’, and support existing and new businesses’. 

All the businesses have been selected for their good reviews, quality and atmosphere. If you are a food and drink business based in NE Derbyshire and are interested in joining the trail, contact:

It’s currently free to join! You also get free promotion on the council’s website and social media; and trail stickers to display in windows.
