The Pickled Pear At Palterton


A new micropub in Palterton, a village near Bolsover is set to officially open it’s doors
in mid-February. The Pickled Pear at The Old Post Office (39 Main St, Palterton, Chesterfield S44 6UJ) will act as a new community hub for the village, which has been without a pub for a number of years. With strong local support, the micropub has a noise management scheme in place and will provide a friendly place for villagers to get together. Around 5,000 people call Palterton their home and the hope is the Pickled Pear will provide an intimate meeting place, to serve the growing community. The pub is on the end of a block of terraced houses, with a holiday let next door, which is run by the same owner. The property was originally built as the village’s post office in the early 1900s before being converted into a residential property around 1960. However, it has been out of use for a number of years and the new business will bring a community use to the empty premises.

The new micropub will serve beer and spirits, non-alcoholic beverages, coffee and tea, pre-prepared pork pies and traditional snacks. Two rotating cask beers will be on offer, from local breweries like Welbeck Abbey Brewery. Owner and Palterton resident, Adam Taylor, said: “The bar will be small, but warm and welcoming. I want to give something back to the village in which I live. The idea is for very much to be a pub for local residents and we’re running the pub to respect the surrounding area”.

With a cosy and relaxed atmosphere, the Pickled Pear has lots of quirky decor, with
beer barrel tables, monk bench seating and unique walls features, that catch the eye.
A beautiful log burner fireplace fills the room with a warmth that is reflected in the greeting you receive. A combination of brick walls and wood panels, give a sense of style and tradition. As InnSpire went to print the exterior was set to be fitted out with signage, lights and a wooden facade.

Look out for a future feature in the next issue of InnSpire magazine and we look forward to visiting the pub when it opens soon.
