Keeping lovers of the great outdoors fed and watered since 1992!

Situated right in the heart of the beautiful Peak District and on the doorstep of the stunning Lathkill Dale; it is our mission to provide good, honest, quality food and drink to the huge array of visitors to this wonderful part of the world. Whether you are walking, cycling, caving, out for the day with the dog, visiting with family or simply just passing by, you are all extremely welcome to The Old Smithy, Monyash.

Although we are famous for our all day breakfasts and homemade apple cake with ice-cream, we serve much more than just these two fine dishes! We offer a wide range of food, from hot and cold sandwiches, main meals and homemade cakes to jacket potatoes and paninis served with our homemade coleslaw and side salad. All our dishes are freshly prepared on the premises with the ingredients sourced from local suppliers, many of whom we have done business with since we started out in 1992.

Since we opened on Good Friday in 1992 we have gone from strength to strength

We are proud to be have been shortlisted in the top 10 cafes in the 2017 best cafe award by Great Outdoors Magazine, and have been finalists in the Best Derbyshire Breakfast category at the Derbyshire Food and Drink awards on many occasions.
