There can be few better ways to spend a sunny afternoon in the Peak District than having a meal and a few drinks in the garden at The Bull's Head. Surrounded by green fields with mature trees, barns and limestone walls, the setting is as rural as you could wish for.
There is seating for around forty people at the picnic-style tables with parasols, set on our lawn, bordered by informal flower beds, with small trees providing further shade.
The full menu is available out here, served by attentive staff; orders are placed at the bar inside.
A small gate gives access to the village play park, fully visible from the far end of the garden, so families can enjoy a meal and drinks as their children have fun just over the low wall.
Being set far back from the road and pub buildings, the garden gets the sun all day long and on into the evenings in summer, when special events are sometimes organised.
Those who want to be nearer to the pub can make use of the stone-flagged side-terrace which benefits from the sun for most of the day and then provides some shade in the later afternoon.
