Called here last Sunday for a meal and a drink before going home after a nice long break in the peak district, the welcome & hospitality was great. We all ordered the carvery and it was superb and brilliant value for money. Will definitely be coming here again on our next visit to the area, highly recommended and deserving of... More

After visiting the Bowling green about 18 months ago, I decided to book again for my husband as a birthday weekend surprise. After a busy week at work we were both looking forward to the ride over & relaxing with a pint taking in the stunning views. On our arrival we were promptly taken to our room & left to... More

Stopped here for a drink after a local walk. Despite the 'dog friendly' signage, our welcome to the pub was not a friendly hello, but a harsh comment about dogs not being allowed in. We were informed that dogs were allowed in one of the side rooms or outside the front, not in the beer garden or in the room... More

Our family and friends had a super lunch outside in the sunshine and the publican even let me have a free 'Proper Job' glass! The pub was welcoming and the food was good it's a lovely village and the pub is in a lovely spot with great views over the countryside.

This is simply a superb place to go for either a friendly drink or a delicious meal . The food is first class and never been disappointed. The staff are great friendly and helpful and make everyone feel welcome. The garden at the rear is perfect on a summers day for families and in winter there is always a roaring... More

Having stayed in Bradwell village for the week in a holiday cottage,we ate at this pub twice.We was made very welcome along with our Springer Spaniel,and can highly recommend the food,especially the Sunday Carvery which is amongst the best we've had! We live 100 miles away,but will definitely return.

We stayed just for one night and were in room 4. Initially we thought the room was great as it was a good size, had a 4 poster bed and tea making facilities (always a bonus!) Shower was powerful too. Unfortunately the whole room had a funny smell (damp?) that overpowered after a while. Main problem was that we could... More

Stopped in this quintessential old English pub for a family reunion. The rooms are in a converted barn attached to the pub. Even though there was deep snow outside the room was warm and comfortable. The owners and staff made us welcome and nothing was to much trouble. The food in the pub is excellent I recommend the Desperate Dan... More

We went to 'ye old bowling green' twice on our recent weeks holiday in the area. I am therefore only commenting on the food experience. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children, 1 of which is a very fussy eater. The children's meals were good value at £4.95 which was a good sized main meal and ice... More
