After walking six miles from Hay to get there this provided some excellent restaurant food and a variety of good bottled beers and ciders. It had a warm cosy atmosphere, a true old English pub which hadn't been spoiled by modern renovations. Although we hadn't...More

We visited the The Bull's Head after an absence of 5 years and were surprised to discover that, and I quote, this 'unique dining pub' does not sell draft beer or any type of snacks. It was disappointing to find nothing but bottled drinks especially...More

Charles and Kathryn welcome you to The Bull's Head, Craswall, their unique dining pub in the spectacular country of The Black Mountains. Our aim is to offer good food in the informal but warm surroundings of this old drover's inn where through the years little has changed. Bar service is from a 'hole in the wall' to a room furnished with scrubbed top tables and old settles. The restaurant, up a few well worn stone steps from the bar, is also traditionally furnished and has an open log fire to warm you in winter. Old and new friends are welcome to join us for good food, wines and Herefordshire farmhouse ciders.'The Bull's Head in Craswall, one of the best rural pubs in Britain with great food', Owen Sheers, The Daily Telegraph''A wonderful idiosyncratic pub (..) is The Bull's Head at Craswall, with very good food', Fiona Duncan, The Sunday Telegraph'The Bull's Head, an eccentric and magnificent pub (...) tucked away above a stream in the remote village of Craswall, The Bull's Head is rightly proud of its menu', Oliver Bullough, BA Highlife Magazine
