A real local

ThIs is a true local very full of people from the village and one should book to reserve a table. The atmosphere is great and very friendly. The food is good but not outstanding, the service is a bit slow if they are busy. As to the two pubs in the village it is a question of head versus heart.... read more

Fabulous family get together the The Bull's Head on Saturday night. Twenty or so family members gathered together in the Tap Room for a 50th birthday party. Kate and George could not be more accommodating - room decorated with balloons and banners and plenty of delicious homemade food. We agreed on Goats cheese tartlets with bread and olives to start,...

Amazing food - whitebait and garlic mushroom starter followed by delicious pies. Big portions. Great wine list. Very good service and all handily placed for our B&B

The Good Pub Guide is really helpful if you enjoy a good pint, but it isn't particularly focused on food exclusively. So given that the eating options can be as limited in Derbyshire as decent mobile signal this was our only source for a lunch option. But we struck gold - really fantastic - the team went out of their... More

Four of us visited for drinks in the day and decided to book a table for dinner later that evening. The food was lovely, we had a couple of rump steaks, chicken pie and chicken in mustard. It all tasted really good, the chips were very nicely cooked and the portions were nice and big. The staff were also amazing... More

Went for an early dinner. Make sure you book to secure a table as the bar area is small. Menu is very good. Some nice interesting dishes better than the normal pub food. Service was a little bit slow but we were early to eat at 6pm so probably better later.

We popped in for an early family dinner recently and weren't disappointed. Good real ale on tap and good pub grub on the menu. We were very pleasantly surprised and all had a lovely meal. Service was good and very friendly and the food was good homely grub and very tasty at that. Prices were very reasonable too, which is... More

Glad we booked to come here. Granted it was a lovely day and the hikers and bikers were out in force, but this looked like the sort of pub that is always busy at weekends. The food was hearty and tasty,.and the range of beers were good and well kept. The 'Farmers Blonde' was excellent and went down a treat.... More

We live locally and thought we would walk over for a nice meal in a warm,welcoming environment. Several things were crossed off the blackboard menu so our choice was reduced even though it was 6.45 on a Saturday evening and they had not been opened long neither were they busy! After waiting nearly a hour for our starters my whitebait... More
