Welcome to The Old Smithy. We are a family run cafe set right in the centre of the beautiful Peak District village of Monyash, on the village green.

Housed in the former village blacksmiths shop, with quirky artefacts and tools around the cafe from these times; we are able to offer something for everyone. Whether just passing by, coming back from a long walk down the dales, half way through a bike ride or setting off an a day long adventure. Monyash is right in the middle of the Peak District National Park and close by to many fabulous walks, cycle and motorbike routes, and offers a wide choice of holiday and Bed and Breakfast accommodation. We serve homemade and locally sourced meals, snacks, drinks and ice creams. We pride ourselves on good, honest, quality food served in a friendly and relaxed environment.

The Old Smithy can also be hired out for private parties and functions in the evening where we offer a more restaurant/bistro style menu, we are also fully licensed with a good selection of wines and spirits and real ale from the superb Peak Ales, brewed at Chatsworth, just down the road.

We also offer outside catering. We can cater for most occasions (minimum of 10 people) including hot and cold buffets, bbqs, event catering and dinner parties cooked in your own home or holiday cottage. Please get in touch for more details.

We look forward to welcoming you to our cafe soon,

Dave and The Old Smithy Team x
