If your website says that on a Sunday night you serve food until 9pm, it’s a bit poor that at 8.10pm we were told the kitchen was closed - and despite two tables tucking in to their meals, presumably ordered a little earlier. After buying...More

Over priced rolls (or subs) which seemed stale. We queried the freshness and were assured they were fresh today. Very little ham or cheese and cheese had little flavour. Probably best to avoid this place.

The Monsal Head Hotel is situated at the peak of the Monsal dale. The hotel itself is steeped in history whilst the Stables bar which has stood the test of time for over 200 years still holds the quirky values ...More today as it did then. Offering a fine selection of beers supplied by local micro breweries. Food is of the highest offering with everything from light bites to hearty meals with an enphasis on good quality local produce all made on the premises. Less
