The Bulls Head Monyash
The Bulls Head is tucked away amidst Monyash’s winding lanes, limestone walls and rolling green hills. This pretty inn occupies a beautiful 17th-century building and boasts a homely setting where relaxation is inevitable; the pub’s beamed ceilings and stone walls create a cosy setting for ramblers, cyclists and locals alike – quite simply, it’s the perfect village pub.
Dine in the sunshine in the spacious beer garden, which has a play area and is surrounded by greenery, making it an ideal location for families. In winter, curl up in front of the flickering log fire while sipping a brew. For more intimacy, head to the snug to find quirky touches like a stuffed buzzard alongside paintings by local artist Lynne Wilkinson and cow-themed wallpaper.
The menu is dominated by English classics but also features a range of contemporary dishes. Expect to find main courses like grilled trout adorned with almonds, and the delectably rich lamb and red wine casserole, as well as superb steaks and hearty classics like lasagne. The carefully chosen wine list features something to complement every meal, and there’s also a wealth of local microbrewery beer to choose from.
Round off your meal with homemade dessert before heading for a game of pub darts or pool. Revel in the tranquillity and homely feel that The Bulls Head boasts – you certainly won’t be the only one.
