About Monsal Head

Situated in the White Peak area of Derbyshire stunning Peak District, Monsal Head offers fantastic views over the Monsal Dale Valley. If the picturesque location alone isn’t enough to draw you in, the delicious British cuisine and range of real ales certainly will. Champions of local produce, each dish on the menu is crafted using meat & game sourced from award-winning butchers and market-fresh, seasonal vegetables. The menu changes regularly but expect to find gourmet takes on British classics, like homemade chicken liver pate and the local gloucester old spot scotch egg for starters, the braised beef with home-smoked garlic mash, glazed shallots, Chantenay carrots and pancetta crisps served with a rich red wine and girolles jus, and the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream. Located on Ashford Lane, along the Monsal Trail near Little Longstone, not far from Bakewell, Monsal Head attracts visitors from all over. Guarantee a table by booking in advance!
