70 mile round trip for lunch????? Was it worth it? Oh yes! A far more innovative menu that expected. All four of our party ordered different three courses! All were splendid with first class service. Next door is a fine character public bar serving a more simple menu and a good selection of cask ales.

Went with three friends for lunch today and enjoyed fine dining at its best. We were the only people eating in the Longstone restaurant, which was akin in style to an old Town Hall. Three of us had starters, and the real foodie amongst us declared the pate to be superb although he did have to ask for some bread.... More

We called at the Stable Bar at the Monsal Head Hotel on 30th Sept 2014 after a walk from Millars Dale. I asked for a pot of tea for 2 and was astounded to be charged £4.80 for a half filled pot of lukewarm tea, which did not even give a full cup of tea for each of us. When... More

The hotel is a little tired in places but none the less is clean, comfortable and has character and is in a fantastic location. We stayed Sunday night, and were the only residents which meant it was nice and quiet, which was what we wanted. The food in the restaurant was very good - my large Thai fish cake salad... More

If you are expecting the Ritz, this hotel is not for you. If you want to stay in a hotel in a beautiful location with friendly and helpful staff, then come here. There is an old world charm about the hotel - the small decanter of sherry in the room adds to that feel. The views from the window of... More

My sister got married here this July and the family stayed at the Monsal Head for the whole weekend. All I can say is that it was the most perfect weekend! The location was beautiful and the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The wedding itself was absolutely perfect. She had the evening reception in the main restaurant and the... More

The beer festival was excellent, very well organised with lots of great cask to try. We went into the stables bar for food, and that was faultless. They clearly have a chef who takes pride in their food and presentation. The service was also great, with helpful and friendly staff. However, the management need a little work!. . . we... More

Had lunch sat outside the stable bar. We both had salads which were more than ample in size. Home made scotch egg to start was good. It was busy but adequately staffed. I felt it was all ok but lacked any wow factor. Location makes it really.
