Why choose the Samuel Fox
Since James Duckett took over as the chef/proprietor of the Samuel Fox Country Inn in October 2012, there have been a number of excellent reviews, for example in December 2012 in the Sheffield Telegraph and in the April 2013 edition of Profile Magazine on pages 56-58.
James is a chef with international experience having travelled widely and worked in the kitchens of some of the very best restaurants, in the UK, France, Holland and Australia. Also, he has run his own restaurants in Spain and more recently in Devon.
The Samuel Fox is James’s first pub venture where, given his background and experience, you may be sure that the food on offer is of the highest order (see the links to James’s new menus to the right of this page). However, James is keen to see that the Samuel Fox also plays host to villagers and visitors alike who may wish to just enjoy a drink in convivial surrounds. James is living ‘above the shop’ and thus well placed to ensure that there’ll always be the very warmest of welcomes for residents, diners and those enjoying a drink with friends and family.
The village of Bradwell in the Hope Valley lies at the heart of the Peak District National Park, an area rich in natural beauty, history and heritage. With four beautifully furnished en suite guest rooms, fine food and a welcoming bar, the Samuel Fox is an ideal base from which to explore all that the Park has to offer. Nearby are the Chatsworth Estate, Haddon Hall, Peveril Castle, and many other English Heritage and National Trust sites; the beautiful villages of Castleton, Bakewell, Matlock, and the larger spa town of Buxton, with its famous waters and opera house; and the wild beauty and desolate moorland of Kinder Scout, the show caves of Castleton, and the reservoirs and dams of the beautiful Derwent Valley.
Allow us to make your visit to the Hope Valley extra special. Whether you choose to stay, to dine or just to enjoy a drink at the bar or on the terrace, James and his restaurant and bar managers, Sabrina and Gareth, look forward to welcoming you to the Samuel Fox Country Inn soon.
