Do you ever imagine yourself having a post-walk locally-brewed pint overlooking the rolling, green hills of Derbyshire or picture yourself gazing at a roaring fire with your perfect pooch nuzzling at your feet in a cosy snug – with freebie doggie treats a must?

Do you enjoy a good natter with your mates at the bar whilst sampling an array of tasty bar treats or take delight in quizzing the manager about his knowledge of the carefully chosen wines on offer?

Having taken off your muddy boots (and maybe even glammed yourself up a little), can you picture yourself tucking into contemporary British cuisine, crafted out of locally produced products, in our charming, relaxed dining room?

What more could you ask for?

Well, we might just have the perfect place in mind . . .

    We had a lovely meal once again at The Bulls Head, the only thing we don't like is having the service charge included in our bill. We would have tipped anyway but bit is nice to have the choice.

    The Bull’s Head has now become a wonderful place to dine out since it was refurbished under new management. The food is outstanding. The plates arrived looking like mini works of art. Top marks to the chef. The amazing service and great atmosphere and decor all combined to make this a perfect evening out. Finally, on sunny evenings the garden outside is really worth a visit for a sundowner.

    Although the venue is tremendous the food left a lot to be desired, the potatoes were rock hard and I think deep fried, the chicken supreme was not what anyone would call ‘chicken supreme’ it was basically a chicken breast sliced with some garlic butter and possibly a bit of cream, the food was piled up on top of each other so didn’t look appetising at all, very little taste to it. On top of that the paying guest (91) was charged a 10% service charge which he had not intended to do but because he was rushed he pressed the wrong button, the staff did not assist him at all, also the music is so loud that it is difficult to hear each other, I’m afraid we’ll not be going back, it’s gone upmarket without the quality and customer care

    We have visited the Bulls Head several times and have never been disappointed until last night. The restaurant was half empty which lead to a lack of ambience that has always been there before. The food was good but for the first time we thought it was too expensive. We appreciate all costs have rocketed and this is something to take into account but we still couldn't justify what we paid. For the first time I would hesitate to recommend which is disappointing as we had high hopes for this new Bulls Head.

    We were warmly welcomed and served without waiting too long. We found the wines rather expensive but there were some good choices. Having large fabric napkins was a lovely addition which is professional and a sign of attention to detail. Thankyou
