TRADITIONAL AFTERNOON TEA
Built in 1778 by Sir Richard Arkwright, The Greyhound Hotel stands adjacent to Cromford Mill, the birthplace of the industrial revolution and is part of the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site. Steeped in history, this magnificent Georgian coaching inn was named for the black Greyhound on the family crest of Phillip Gell then owner of Hopton Hall and the land on which the hotel was built. The Greyhound Hotel is still referred to locally as the “Black Dog”
Georgina Duchess of Devonshire famously met with Richard Arkwright Jr in the bar of The Greyhound Hotel to discuss a loan to pay off her gambling debts.
The Greyhound Hotel is a perfectly located base for exploring the many attractions of the Derbyshire Peak National Park. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are a short drive away, Alton Towers 20 minutes and Gulliver’s Kingdom, The Heights of Abraham and Matlock Bath just around the corner.
Dine in our beautifully refurbished brasserie restaurant and enjoy the log fire, cask ales and fine wines.
