The parish has just one pub, The Three Stags Heads in Darley Bridge, with another close by, just over the boundary of South Darley, on the other bank of the Derwent: the Square and Compass. Both pubs serve a range of drinks and food. Barringtons, in Two Dales, is a pub with a restaurant and hotel.
There are various cafes in Two Dales, for example the Whitworth Terrace Cafe, the Tall Trees Coffee Shop and Restaurant at the Forest Garden Centre, the Pickled Pear Cafe and the Sticky Fig.
For fish ‘n’ chips, there is the Darley Dale Fish Bar.
