We stopped off here after a day out and it looked really nice. Unfortunately when we went in we were spoken to abruptly and told we were standing in the wrong place and should be at the bar. We obediently moved to the bar only to be told we should be standing at the restaurant entrance (where we'd previously been)....

Stayed here for two nights re-living a visit to Castleton 30 odd years ago. The town hasn't changed and is stunning. This accommodation is very tastefully decorated, great views, great hot drink making options, fabulous shower, comfortable bed and great breakfast menu (you won't go hungry!). The meal that we had for dinner one evening (open fish pie) was also...

I stopped off here when I took my Aussie friend on a drive through the area and we had the most delicious lunch. It was so good, I went back on the Sunday with my family for their roast dinner and it did not disappoint. Delicious food, friendly service and great beer. Highly recommend.

Visited Castleton recently with friends and stopped off at the Bull's Head for some lunch. All pubs in Castleton are dog friendly except the Bull's Head who ask that you sit in the barn if you have a dog. This we did. Unfortunately if it's raining they do not serve food to anyone in the barn as we found out...

After biking to the head of nearby Howden Reservoir we met up with family from Manchester for Sunday lunch.. We had read the rave reports of the Bull's Head and were not disappointed. This is a very busy establishment in the heart of Castleton. We had three Sunday roasts and pork belly. All reasonably priced and of a very good...

Stopped in here after visiting the caves with my girlfriend. We both had a roast, which came with plenty of meat, a selection of buttered veg, and some lovely roast potatoes. The meal was really good, as were the waitresses. No complaints at all. WIFI: bestpubincastleton

We rang up in the morning to book a table for 8 at 8 pm and were told by a man that they did not take bookings for dinner after 7.30 and last orders were at 8.30. When challenged that the restaurant advertised last orders by 9, I was told that the hotel management was ‘free’ to change that. Upon...

I'm writing this review simply to thank Tobias at the Bull's Head for going above beyond in helping us find a room in Castelton. The inn was full but Tobias called 8 local inns until he found one for us! Who does that? Personally, I think that experience alone says a great deal about this place. We were traveling as...
