Castleton is a great place to stay for access to some spectacular scenery. I'd certainly recommend the Bull's Head Inn - friendly staff, good service, good hearty breakfast + nice food overall (I had the steak & kidney pie two nights running), selection of well-kept beers, clean & comfortable room. Only minor negative comment - we had a twin room... More

Centrally located with off street parking. Close to visitors centre and local attractions. Stayed B&B in Rm 1, well presented, comfortable bed, nice modern bathroom. Room was quiet and faced due west towards Winnats Pass. Breakfast was comprehensive and as well as cereals, yoghurts, fruit juices toast and marmalade/jam included a cooked choice menu which featured a fantastic full English.... More

We dropped in on spec following a trip down the Blue John mines (about 5 minutes drive away) Really pleasantly surprised, lovely menu, great food all round - and pub was welcoming and comfortable. I thought the prices were very reasonable. Would definitely recommend!

Had lunch while visiting Castleton, we thought that the menu was good and had a good selection of specials on the blackboard. We enjoyed the meal, as I was driving I didn't drink, but the selection of beers looked good. On the down side, the price is a bit expensive for what you really get. Will go back if I... More

We ate here two evenings after being advised that the food was good by the proprietors of Swiss House the B & B where we stayed. The food here is very good pub grub served on hot plates so it stays hot. Slow cooked pork belly very good also steak & kidney pie, we only had room for desert one... More

Just got back home after an overnight stay at The Bulls Head and you cannot fault the place. The meal we had last night was very good, very tasty and nice and hot. The room we had (no. 2) had stunning views towards Winnats and Mam Tor. Maybe a little bit of a background noise from the main road but... More

I have eaten here twice and on both occasions found the food to be of an excellent standard. The pub is always busy which is a good indication of the quality of the food. If you are visiting Castleton I would definitely recommend this pub as good place to get a really delicious meal.

We have spent many weekends over the years in Castleton and we have tried but failed to get a booking here (which speaks volumes!). So this year we booked early and got 21/22 Nov for £85 per night...fab!! We love it....the room is spacious and the bed is amazingly comfortable (currently laying on it now as I review). We have...

We liked The Bullshead so much we had our wedding reception there... They could not have been more helpful and did an excellent and very professional job of serving good food to approx. 90 guests without some of the long gaps that often blight weddings. The food we chose was classic English pub grub that went down well with the... More
