MONDAY 15TH JANUARY - WE ARE PLEASED TO SAY OUR ANNUAL WINTER INSPECTION BY CASK MARQUE WAS PASSED WITH A SCORE OF 100%
Welcome to Smith's Tavern in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. We are a highly traditional alehouse right in the heart of the town, offering a warm welcome and a great selection of real ales, whiskies and other drinks. We have been awarded Branch Pub of the Year by CAMRA for 2013, 2014 and 2015, as well as Pub of the Season for Spring 2016. We are sometimes not easily spotted when passing, but you'll find it hard to leave once you come in. Look out for the double fronted bay windows - we look like a shop because, once upon a time, we were a wine and spirit merchants.
