The Duncombe Arms pub and restaurant is located in the picturesque village of Ellastone on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border.

We’re a great spot for lunch or dinner when visiting Ashbourne, Darley Moor Motor Sports Centre, Uttoxeter Racecourse, the Peak District or Alton Towers. We’re also less than half an hour from Derby and Stoke.

The Duncombe Arms is a great base around which to plan walks exploring the Ellastone area. For details of a gentle walk, please download this leaflet, kindly supplied by East Staffordshire Borough Council.
