I am writing to give a big thank you to all who served us at our family reunion last Saturday evening. We all had a wonderful get together and the food and service were excellent. Everybody was friendly and made us most welcome. What really impressed us was that everyone, all sixteen of us, received our main meal at the same time. That was really excellent.

We stayed at the Bull's Head two weeks ago. We had a very pleasant stay. Good food and drinks, and lots of singing on the fryday night, with Barbara Streisand, ha ha. We had a lovely time, thank you very much Jonathan and Marilyn. Many greetings to your mom. We'll meet again. Kind regards Jack and Christel

Just got back from an overnight stay at the Bull's Head to celebrate my wife's birthday. Very enjoyable experience, polite courteous helpful staff. Very welcoming pub with a nice atmosphere, comfortable room and excellent food. We were both highly delighted - thanks Jonathon and all at the Bull's Head
. Cheers, Jim and Betsy Clark
Superb Sunday lunch today preceded by a stunning circular walk around Foolow. The Landlord was extremely accommodating as there was 12 of us. The service was efficient without being rushed and the food was delicious. Sunday Roast comes with a free dessert which was an unexpected bonus! Many thanks,
Really enjoyed our couple of days with you. The room was very clean, the food excellent and the staff very helpful. We ill definitely stay again when we are in the area.
Two very enjoyable evenings spent at the Bull's Head Friday and Saturday just gone. Welcome was warm and friendly, food was delicious. Live music Friday night was great. To be able to bring our cocker spaniel Danny in with us was an extra bonus. Would certainly recommend a visit. Look forward to our next visit and hope to stay in one of the comfortable looking rooms.
Well what a fantastic place to stay! The room was spotlessly clean with an excellent en-suite bathroom & Comfy bed and a warm cosy feel. The bar was friendly with a very relaxed feel to it and i have to say excellently run with a great choice of Beers and Malts on offer. First time trying the 'Monkey Shoulder' whiskey last night which was a fantastic blended malt! The Dinner menu was varied & extensive and the food was absolutely fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyable starter,main course & sweet. Breakfast was perfect and set us up for an exhaustive days walk around the Derwent valley reservoirs. Without doubt we will definitely be staying here again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in relaxing surroundings with friendly people and fantastic food!
Online booking went fine no problems, a great welcome from the staff and willingness to make the stay very good. The food was excellant and to a high standard,good menu for supper and breakfast was well served. All in all a very good place to stay in very beautiful surroundings
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay. A nice room, a great choice of evening meals from the specials board and a lovely breakfast including porridge! Never been to Foolow before but it is an ideal base for local walks. Thank you

. Food was excellent as was selection of ales and wines available. Landlord most accommodating and we will definitely be returning. Breakfast was also to die for. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
Four of us stayed this weekend as friends were having a wedding celebration here. Our room was lovely and spacious with a wonderfully comfortable four-poster bed. We ate all our meals in the restaurant
and they were excellent from a generous breakfast to delicious dinners (one of the best fish pies I've eaten and plenty of lovely freshly cooked vegetables). The welcome was really friendly and Jonathan went out of his way to be accommodating and helpful. The surrounding area of course is stunning and we would definitely hope to come back again soon to the Bull's Head..
We had a lovely stay at the Bulls Head. The accommodation
was very comfortable and cosy, everything you needed. The staff were warm and welcoming and a good sense of humour! The food was great with a very wide choice. The village of Foolow is very quaint with fantastic walks around the areas.

Date - Saturday 18 August Foolow - The Bulls head Inn. Returning from Cheshire we need an evening meal and called in on spec. It was a busy evening service with no apparent free tables, we were greeted by the proprietor and with a little judicious juggling a table for 2 was found. Nothing was too much trouble. There’s a wide ranging menu with something for everyone and a good price range to suite most pockets. Main course Shoulder of Lamb served with fresh vegetables Roast Belly Pork served with fresh vegetables followed by Ice cream Apple Tart and ice cream Coffee and Chocolates. The service was excellent; the staff were attentive but not intrusive, The main courses were invitingly presented and cooked to perfection. If you’re only planning one visit the Peak District then get to Bulls Head Inn at Foolow, you’ll be assured of a fine welcome with excellent food in interesting surroundings.

Super night to celebrate birthdays at our favourite super pub! The senior landlady was rather taken with Halls Carpets but kindly loaned her vehicle for our complimentary lift home by the landlord - greatly appreciated by all - thank you. These points may earn you a free future piano tuning!

We came from The Netherlands and stayed 3 weeks in Foolow (June 2012), a nice place for a holiday, just in between Dark and White Peak. The first evening we went to The Bull for a meal. Afterwards there was no discussion: This is the place where we shal have our dinners these weeks. We did so and have it appreciated every evening. Our advice: Do the same! (Nederlanders: Foolow ligt precies tussen Dark en White Peak, een prachtig startpunt. The Bulls Head Inn biedt voortreffelijke maaltijden en een aangename omgeving. Wij hebben er drie weken tot groot genoegen gegeten. Een besliste aanrader.)

I recently stayed at The Bulls Head with friends (June 2012) and really enjoyed the experience. The location is wonderful. The rooms are well equipped and clean, the breakfast is very good and the restaurant
food is also excellent, we all considered it very good value. I would recommend it to anyone.

stayed opposite to pub and what a result, always has something going on, good food, friendly people (inc landlord) hendricks gin to keep wife happy. even told us best place to get fish & chips on friday even though they do that too. Bloody good draught guinness as well. Shame its shut on mondays but makes tuesday a day to look forward to. Pity we live in kent as if nearer would def be our local. Hope jonathan makes a fortune here as this is what every pub should be like. High praise from both of us, will def call in again when next in peak district. Thanks from us both Bill and Wendy.
