Ate there with some friends last year when camping nearby and as far as we all were concerned we overpaid for bland bland food! Not many options around there on a wet summers night so i think they know they have the market sown up. Swore I would never go back but ended up in there recently just for a... More

We walked from Ashford in the Water to Monsal Head with our 2 kids (8 and 5), we had promised them a treat half way round our walk. The Monsal Head Hotel ticked all our boxes with ice cream for the kids and tea and a lovely piece of fudge for the grown ups. The service was fantastic and very... More

we headed up the steep path near the Monsal viaduct, towards the cafe but it was closed but we got a warm welcome at the Stable Bar. Muddy boots, dogs, kids are all welcome. Limited seating inside but really cosy, stalls! Good bear and nice loo

Our group of fourteen descended at the hotel for a meal after a wonderful walk in the Monsal valley. Even with such a large party, nothing was too much trouble and our orders for drinks and food were taken expertly, even informing us about the different beers and choices of soft drinks. The food was all freshly cooked and the... More

The stables bar was packed the whole week end. Live music, great food and ales and a really friendly, welcoming staff. Treats for dogs, muddy boots and children all made very welcome. At one point on the Sunday afternoon 34 very cold children were ushered in by their teachers and helpers as they had been caught out by a sudden... More

Having visited the stables bar which is part of Monsal Head hotel on numerous occasions we heard they were holding a beer festival, and that they had a great over night stay deal of £99 per couple, bed, breakfast and 2 course evening meal and a bottle of wine. We booked in for what turned out to be a fantastic... More
