We always visit this pub when we visit Buxton. Really friendly place, not in the least bit posh,but tasty food, from the sandwiches to the hot meals ... all good. Chips are ace!! Just be prepared to wait a while for food. It IS worth the wait.

This is a no fuss pub, very basic but reasonable beer - good prices and friendly staff. Not your traditional market town pub it is decor from a designer that spent more time drinking than thinking, but if a pint in a no frills pub is your want then this ticks all the boxes.

We visited the Miltons Head today. We were greeted warmly and informed straight away that the regular chef was off poorly & this could result in a small delay for food. No problem at all, prefer up front communication. Nice food with a good selection. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Good portions and value. The staff are friendly and really helpful.... More

A group of us on a tour called in for a few drinks most of the party were from Germany and really enjoyed the atmosphere of an old English pub. Service was friendly if not particularly swift, the visit went down well with the group.

glad you enjoyed, and you should try the food as it is a new menu, the pies are cooked to order so most meals do take 15 2 20 mins to come out. But its worth waiting for. More

It is a budget meal in a budget pub, but that shouldn't put you off! The food is fresh, very tasty with generous portions. The deserts are excellent. The staff are welcoming and fun..... My wife was so impressed they went the next day, regardless of other choices. If you want a good meal at a reasonable price.....give it a... More
