Our friendly team are looking forward to giving you a warm welcome

Situated on the banks of the historic Bugsworth canal basin, this dog-friendly Inn is perfectly positioned for both a gentle stroll or challenging hike, or even a cycle stop. Nestled in the hills of the Peak District, you can enjoy good plates of home cooked fare, real ales and a good selection of spirits including gins.

There’s a place for everyone; outside you will find seats on the patio or in the enclosed beer garden. Inside you will find a range of rooms from the main restaurant right through to the bar or games room. Finally there is somewhere to rest your head in one of our six en suite rooms.

For the narrowboating community, the Basin is a prime location with plenty of mooring spaces within. We are an ideal place to meet your biking, hiking and boating friends in a warm family atmosphere.


Eat With The Navigation

From the largest to the smallest appetite, we are sure to have something to tickle your fancy more than Doddie’s tickling stick.

Our breakfasts are world famous (well, in our minds anyway!) andclosley followed by our great value carvery available every Sunday . Then we can also use our restaurant to the fullest extent allowing us to cater for functions up to around 100 peeps. There’s no charge for hire of the restaurant if food is taken and we can tailor a menu to your likes more than Saville Row! 

Steer To Sleep…

Whether you’re visiting for a slumber party, a lively party or just a break in the hills,or even somewhere to rest your head after having been “out out“. We have six comfortable en suite bedrooms to form a base from which you can explore the wonderful Peak District. Each boasting Sky TV, free WiFi and all other facilities you may require. Delightfully set up each morning with our infamous Full English Breakfast.

Function Room Hire

We are lucky to have a beautiful L-shaped function room which has direct access to our outside patio area under the gazebo. A very flexible and adaptable space which can comfortably seat up to 60 people. If your function is more of a relaxed walk about atmosphere we can cater for up to 100.

We look at each enquiry/function on an individual basis and look to quote you the best rate first time.  Our menus can be adapted to any event and we would be happy to work with you to make your event a success.

Cheers To Beers…

For our thirsty visitors our bar is led by six cask ale wickets.  Our very own “Basil” utilises a panel of trusted breweries to bring a wide variety of beers to suit even the most discerning of palates. Backed up by a good range of premium ciders and lagers, there is something for everyone…

But not forgetting “Polly and Cybil” we BeGin our evenings (and any other time of day) with a wide variety of spirits and mixers. Not forgettting those of you driving, we also carry 0% beer and lager as well as a good range of soft drinks to keep the little Navigators happy. And just to spice things up, we will soon be introducing a number of cocktails to our menu.
