As the title says. Nice pub with good value food, large portions from a limited menu. Food good enough but nothing to make you go "wow must go there again"

Called in on the off chance. Great food and good value. Would eat there again. Peroni on draught was a bonus. Family enjoyed it too.

I have since discovered that the pub is in new ownership as of a few weeks ago, but at the time we found the Bull's Head sadly lacking. We booked a table for 7pm because we did not want to eat too late. One of the three of us was a vegan (by preference) so we ordered the Roasted Red... More

Had a delicious, freshly cooked, Thai green curry this evening. Service was friendly, the pub had a relaxed comfortable feel. Would go again.

We only had a snack here but it was excellent food & value for money. Well worth a visit. It set in a beautiful sleepy village in the Derbyshire Dales.

The food was okay but the portions are huge. Quality over quantity would have been more acceptable. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Really tasty pies and excellent beers made this a great place to visit in this picturesque village. A blackboard of different foods entice the hungry traveller and while the mars bar cheesecake may not make the final of Masterchef it certainly earns this review's title!

We visited Ashford-in-the-Water on a rainy day in May - can see where the name comes from! Had a little walk round the village, and ended up at the Bull's Head - its an attractive pub with a nice big outside sitting area at the back. We stayed inside because of the weather, and had tasty sandwiches and a drink... More
