We have eaten here on a couple of previous occasions & always found the food good. With this in mind we booked in again at the campsite down the road thinking that we could just eat here on an evening. We ate on the first night of our trip, my burger was good however my husband's ribs looked like they'd... More

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The inside of bar could do with some refurbishment. The service could have been a little quicker. The food was well presented and a good portion. The range of real ales is good and what a better place to enjoy the beautiful view. It was slightly expensive for the items we had but I... More

I stayed at the Monsal Head for one night. I was the only guest staying the night. in my experience that is either excellent or lousy. in this case it was excellent. The hotel is tired in its appearance. It simply needs a good lick of paint and modernising the bathrooms - nothing more. The situation is ravishing. I had... More

Paid for the weekend break offer of £140.00 per night, we opted for Saturday night only. For your money you get a 3 course dinner for two of which there is an excellent selection for each course. I had the Sea Bass for my main, if you was paying separately that alone would cost £18.00. The breakfast is also excellent... More

We needed a quiet place to be outdoors and talk and this was perfect. The food was decent and arrived promptly though it charges the high prices I suppose it can command given the setting.There are plenty of tables outdoors though unfortunately not with the stunning view that is available just a few steps away. Don't miss out on that!

Me and a buddy recently visited the peaks to go hiking for a weekend. We were well in need of a good pint and a burger and so were delighted when we saw this gem on the hill top. We grabbed a couple of pints and sat outside to have a chat. We then decided to go in and order... More

We stayed at Monsal Head Hotel after booking last minute (booked at 6:00pm arrived 10:30pm) and although the guy behind the bar was not expecting us we were made to feel welcome, quickly found a room & he explained everything we needed to know regarding breakfast the following morning. The hotel is a bit dated but very clean & the... More

We were part of the same party as Gorillla Foot and when we arrived were met with sarcasm from David at reception. The whole weekend was generally good with the remainder of the hotel's staff being most helpful and once we had overcome the unwelcome registration we had a good stay. Breakfast was most enjoyable and we met friends for... More

Been staying in the area for a week and decided to eat here as we heard good things about it. We ended up eating here for 3 of the 5 days as the service and food were excellent. On 2 of the days we had early dinner in the stables only 7 tables but full of charm which adds to... More
