Shops

Opposite the Church is the award-winning Denstone Hall Farm Shop, where you can buy many delicious foods. They also sell cards and gifts.

There are some useful local stores in nearby Rocester, one of which is also a Post Office.

Pubs & Restaurants

There isn’t a fast food chain for miles. To satisfy your hunger and thirst in Denstone, you can choose between The Tavern in the centre of the village and the Denstone Hall cafe in the Farm Shop, both of which are deservedly very popular with locals and visitors alike.

The Tavern

Rocester has a fish and chip shop and an Indian restaurant, while the nearby village of Ellastone has The Duncombe Arms pub/restaurant.

Petrol Stations & Garages

There is no petrol station in Denstone itself, but if you have car trouble or need petrol urgently there is a garage in nearby Rocester – it’s not open late or on Sundays, though. A little further away, there are several petrol stations in Ashbourne and Uttoxeter, each just a few miles away in opposite directions. There are also tyre and car repair garages in Cheadle, Ashbourne and Uttoxeter.

Accommodation

There are several places to stay in Denstone from small B&Bs to larger self catering establishments.

Children’s Play Area

There’s a play area for small children in the centre of the village not far from the Tavern Pub.

Community Transport – Denstone Voluntary Car Scheme

Launched in April 2006, the Community Transport service is proving to be a valuable facility available to all Denstone residents. The main purpose of the scheme is to provide a door to door service for those who are without access to a private car, when suitable public transport is not available, or cannot be used due to infirmity, age or disability.

We can help you if you cannot drive or use public transport. We will collect, transport and return you so you can attend appointments, etc., between 8am — 6pm on weekdays.
