“Fantastic find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Brilliant little pub with a great atmosphere. Locals and tourists warmly welcomed. Good food - especially the sausage, my boys loved it and can't wait to come back for more sausage and chips! Colette and Dave are great hosts - excellent repertoire if events seem to be planned into the future! Wish we could have stayed longer and later to experience more that this brilliant little place had to offer.

“Fantastic place for a beer, a strong cider or a cracking ale!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The Barley Mow is a fantastic bar hidden away in Matlock, the staff are incredible friendly and they clearly enjoy mixing with the customers and having a bit of fun. The food is fantastic and the range of cider and ale is perfect after a walk in the dales!
It must be noted that there is a good chance of being abducted by Aliens or being chased around the place by the fittest chickens in England! This bar is famous for UFO sightings and also holds the annual World Championship Hen Racing Competition in August (I think its August!). The land lady made sure I had a t-shirt before I left!
I would highly recommend the Barley Mow, a gem of a pub in the heart of Derbyshire! I will be going back for the chicken run!

“The Welcome in the Peaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

So much more than a local!
Nestled in the Peaks this quirky little place is the home to the World Championship Chicken Racing every August. Famed for it's home made (Man size portion) food. Easy Atmosphere every Friday night when they have a bring anything to bang and strum night. Unrivalled for the best live music every Saturday night. Famed for it's little Green men & UFO spotting & New Years parties that put the Olympic opening ceremony to shame. Oh and if that is not enough..... Relax with a glass of Vino on a Tuesday night and learn French the fun way, with the locals...... Brilliant!
This little place never stops thanks to the two fantastic people who run it.... Colette and Dave!
Hats off to the pair of them Bonsall is so lucky to have you!
I live 40 minutes away and I have adopted it as my local!
