This was our favorite pub during our stay in the Peak District.We even returned a second time to celebrate our tenth Wedding Anniversary.Excellent menu with just enough choices.Food served piping hot,a rare treat these days.Portions very generous which made the price extreemly reasonable.Comfortable seating with plenty of room between tables.A must visit eatery for any occassion.

We stayed in Ashford-in-the-Water a couple of weeks ago and you have the choice of two pubs in the village. The Bull's Head and the Ashford Arms. I personally think the Ashford Arms has a slight edge, but the Bull's Head is very good. We had lunch there, and sat in the bar area. Very traditional, and I can imagine... More

Visited with 3 hungry friends recently, and came away very satisfied. Tasty food, well presented, and generous portions. Service was very good, and the beers were an added bonus.

We visited here whilst staying in Ashford in the Water and had a very disappointing meal. The Steak and Ale Pie was obviously mass produced and only partially heated and the chips tasteless. As there was a sign outside advertising fine dining we expected far better than this. The only positive thing to say about the Bulls Head is the... More

What can I say? All the things you look for in your local pub were certainly apparent here. It's been many years since I've seen a pub so well used by locals and visitors alike every day. We stopped each evening after our days out for a drink and snack. The ambience is great, the staff actually smiled and enjoyed... More

Staying at a nearby hotel where another evening meal would have set us back more than £120 with a bottle of wine, we ventured down the road to the Bull's Head for a main course and pudding plus a few drinks and came out with a total bill of £38 ... some difference! Granted not the same as the hotel,... More

We have been coming to the Bulls Head for years, sometimes traveling from Nottingham just for something to eat. The food has gone from Wow to just ok, Cheap frozen chips are the problem. Expensive for pub meals and with the chips being the option lack of quality and effort.

We had a lovely evening meal here, the food was very nice. The pub is in a very quiet village, and walkable from our accommodation at River Cottage. Nice friendly staff, and the garden area was lovely.
