The Ladybower Inn

The Ladybower Inn is the perfect resting place for visitors. Set in the idyllic Peak District, we have stunning views of the Ladybower Reservoir & the rolling hills of the Peaks.

Fourth Generation of Family Brewing

Batemans has been brewing quality beer in Wainfleet since 1874. It’s still owned and run by the Bateman family, now in its fourth generation, and they use the same traditional craft brewing methods as their legendary great-grandfather, George Bateman.

Steeped in History

Our traditional stone-built pub dates back to the 18th century and was a Coaching Inn, that serviced the popular Manchester to Sheffield route.

The Ladybower Reservoir, which sits opposite the Inn, together with its close neighbour, the Derwent Dam, was used by the famous RAF 617 Squadron for practising the low-level flights needed for WWII’s war effort. This was due to their similarity to German dams.
