“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is my favourite place to eat in the South Derbyshire area. The night we visited was extremely busy, but the service and food was top notch. We were amazed at the generous portions, particularly the fish and chips which was such good value for money. Well done all.

“Excellent Xmas Day Lunch”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Xmas day lunch ~ 3 course with coffee & mince pies ~ we always enjoy our visits to the Bulls Head & with fantastic hospitality provided by Becky & Dougie, with a top team behind the scenes...

Excellent value (£40 per head) ~ with a great atmosphere and the personnel touch to all diners...

We pre-ordered our Asiti & Pinotage...both on the table for our arrival...just perfect...with Tom providing a drinks service to the table...

An excellent afternoon, thank you all...

“Great Food & Great Service!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We travel through Hartshorne most years on our way back to Australia and always eat here with our friends. We are all fussy eaters but are never disappointed here. You should see the dessert menu! This year they helped us out of a spot when we needed to checkin online. Once more, many thanks and see you in 2013 again!

“Bloody Brilliant”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We have just recently stayed at The Bulls Head in Hartshorne for 2 weeks. We absolutely loved it. Doug and his wife Becky went out of their way to make our stay a real Home from Home experience. The accomodation was exactly what we needed and the food served was delicious. Doug cooked us a Full English breakfast EVERY day and he and his staff will be sadly missed by us both but remembered fondly back home in Australia.....WE WILL RETURN!!!!! *****
