Maybe a Tesco would be good at the Wanted location  :-\.
If I was caving in the Castleton area and found my batteries needed replacing it would come in very handy  :thumbsup:.
I could also get something to eat and a few cheap beers  :beer2:  :thumbsup:. It's just a pity there's no room for a petrol station because I could re-fuel my car ready for the journey home also  :thumbsdown:  ;) ;) ;)
sounds handy

By the sound of things people on cave trips are finding it hard to get a pint in the area after late trips

Anyone know any cave friendly pubs down that way

Yeah...missing The Wanted Inn already...
Went down to East Canal Thursday night...was in Castleton just after 11...
All the pubs were open but stopped serving (I guess about 11:10) went in
The Bull, The Castle, The Peak Hotel & The Cheddar Cheese...none would serve us!
Whats the score for folk that want a late post caving beer in that part of the world...
Do the TSG'ers have a caver friendly pub we can adopt?

The Wanted Inn went to auction yesterday. I don't yet know who bought it but I heard a rumour that two consortia were interested, one from Sparrowpit, the other from Peak Forest.
It's fairly unlikely to get a change of use so hopefully it's just a matter of time before it reopens. Whether it will stay the same is another matter.

As far as I remember, last orders in pubs in the UK is 22.55. So 23.10 is too late for last orders. The TSG doesn't have any more priveleges (probably less) than anyone else in the village, and I can't think of any pubs in Castleton that would willingly serve after-hours booze specifically to cavers, especially on a main street with a regular police patrol (who also obviously know where the Chapel is). I recommend going an hour earlier, and then if they do decide to 'close the curtains', at least you earned your seat.

Generally around 22.50-23.00 (at least that seems to be the case with most pubs I visit for an after caving drink) unless a later licence was applied for and of course the local authority agreed to it.

Not these days PW, pubs can decide on their own opening hours except for Sunday. They do, however, have to notify the authorities of their intentions and most seem to opt for 23.00 on weekdays.

I believe a chap from Castleton bought it for 100k, not sure what the plan is though, but I don't think he is a builder

The Miners Arms in Eyam is usually good for a few late beers (likes you to get in before 11pm though)

John Beck and Doug Nash are in every night after 10pm, and are a wealth of caving knowledge between them.

Quite a few other local cavers drop in from time to time.

It would be good to actually get a regular midweek, caver's meeting night going again.

Good news, hopefully. The pub has been bought by the Bradley's from the farm at the top of Winnats Pass. They've already started work on it and the word is it will carry on as a village pub and not turn into a posh restaurant.
