Situated between the picturesque villages of Ilam and Thorpe and nestled within the Staffordshire and Derbyshire Peaks, the Izaak Walton Hotel is an AA 3 Star converted 17th Century Country House Hotel offering comfort, history and views of outstanding natural beauty.

Named after the famous author of “The Compleat Angler”, our hotel is privately owned and located in an idyllic setting with modern facilities offering a unique combination of warm hospitality, tranquility and tradition, whilst maintaining high standards of service.

We have 38 well appointed ensuite bedrooms, the majority of which have wonderful views over the hotel gardens and the Derbyshire/Staffordshire Peaks.

Our 2 AA Rosette awarded Haddon Restaurant is the pride of The Izaak Walton Hotel and is recommended as a top fine dining restaurant in Derbyshire.  With breath-taking views of the Dovedale Valley and creative interpretations on traditional dishes, the Haddon Restaurant is the place to dine in style.

For more informal occasions, our Dovedale Bar & Lounge is open to both Residents and Non-Residents alike, from 8am to 11pm, 7 days a week, with food served between 8am and 9pm.  Outside of the standard bar opening hours, residents may order drinks from Reception or the Night Porter.

Our Bar is very traditional with small low windows, beams and stonework.  It has a warm and cosy atmosphere and is a lovely place to enjoy a local ale, partake in a pre-dinner drink or simply relax with a good book.

The Bar also serves breakfast, cream teas, light lunches, bar snacks, evening meals and Sunday lunches.
