The Crispin is located in the Iconic and picturesque village of Ashover, right in the centre of the village next to the church.  Upon entering the pub you have a drinking and eating area both served by a wraparound bar. The pub boasts a rear car park and garden with ample external seating to the front. This is a destination village which is on many walking routes and has plenty of holiday accommodation for the numerous tourists who visit the area, as it is on the very edge of the Peak District. The building is lovely, filled with characterful wood and stone floors, beams and much history with links to Oliver Cromwell.  A refurbishment has been approved for this site with the right tenant.
