Would definitely recommend the pizza menu here as lots of choice and staff were happy to alter the dish slightly to my party's requirements, such as altering a topping for something else. One of my party had a beef dinner which was only served with green beans and two potatoes which we thought was a bit poor, but overall the... More

Called in on a Sunday. My husband had double burger and chips. As I was not feeling very hungry, I just had a plate of chips. But I did have a pudding, as well. There were only cold desserts on the menu, but when I asked if there were any hot puddings, they offered several, including syrup sponge and custard,... More

We don't live in the area. But do like to pop to Denby Pottery Village, so decided to stop here for an early lunch. It was empty at the time, but "the atmosphere" of a place isn't something we base our opinion on, so it didn't bother us that it was quiet. The building was well kept, tidy, clean and... More

We ate at the Bulls Head last night wanted to try as we had not eaten there for a couple of years. Wish we had gone somewhere else actually! We ordered starter which at £5 each you would have expected a little bit of care to be taken but no unfortunately both looked as though they had been thrown on... More

Very average to say the least. Not worth the price being asked bland food served by kids and over priced beer. Was much better a couple of years ago but same landlord and it seems to have gone downhill

Went to this pub for my birthday with my partner, daughter and three month old baby granddaughter. We had rang to check it was okay to take the baby so they knew we were coming. We were sat at a table right next to the bar, not great when we had a pram, which had to be wedged between our... More

Visited for the 2410, I ordered the breaded mushrooms for my starter. They were tasty but nothing special. For my main course I had the fish and chips, when my meal arrived I was pleasantly surprised with how big the portion was, tasty, fresh fish. The chips and salad were nice too. For my dessert I had the waffle with... More

The menu offers a good variety of food from fish and chips to lovely big steaks. Friendly and efficient staff. Always appears to be busy with a good atmosphere. Outdoor area where you can have you dinner in the sun if you wish to. Would recommend

Called here after passing a number of times. There was no real welcome or help to be seated. The food was not memorable and minimal. Would not be returning.

We went here for lunch but after reading recent Trip Advisor reviews, we went with great apprehension! We need not have worried. The restaurant was not busy, but we were not the only ones in either. The friendly efficient staff were very welcoming, and we chose off the '2 for £10.00' menu. We expected to wait a long time but... More
