The Pekoe Café


The aroma of freshly brewed teas and coffees is sure to tantalise taste buds as you browse the menu in the Pekoe Café, perfectly situated on the main route between Chesterfield and the Peak District. The wheelchair accessible café also boasts a free car park to the rear of the building for use of customers – perfect for stopping off after a day of exploring the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire.

The Pekoe Café believes in quality and variety. Offering freshly prepared breakfast, light lunch, vegetarian options, delicious locally made cakes and homemade scones, the cosy café is a charming take on the traditional tearoom. Afternoon tea (including an endless pot of loose leaf) is available when pre-ordered, taking advantage of the incredible teas available through award-winning Northern Tea Merchants.

Soya milk and gluten free bread are available upon request. Special dietary requirements can be accommodated for – please contact the café in advance to ensure the best experience possible.

“We called in for a morning coffee, cake and brunch and were very impressed with the way in which Tracey and her team have taken a great place to visit and added a further layer of charm and personal service. Great coffee from freshly ground beans and wonderfully large slices of cake. A tradition maintained and improved. Thank you.” ChrisBic, March 2017, TripAdvisor.

“We have just had lunch at the beautiful tea room and have had a wonderful meal with plenty of tea, the service is great and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed, would recommend it to everyone, especially to ladies that lunch.” Christine W, May 2018, TripAdvisor.

“Went for lunch here with a friend today. We were both spoilt for choice by the selection on the menu but plumped for smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches. Food and teas, first class, service excellent, atmosphere (and the wonderful smell of ground coffee), top notch. I can't recommend enough. Prices were reasonable too, given the top quality of food and drinks. Tea was REAL loose leaf variety, not teabags, which is always a big plus. Also bought some loose leaf tea, which is far superior to a well-known brand. Needless to say, this will be a regular haunt. I defy anyone not to be impressed by this place.” Pauline W, May 2018, TripAdvisor.
