Just eaten here after various local recommendations and we are glad we listened to them
Great food and the staff were really friendly and attentive, had the steak and it was a really good cut of meat cooked really well.
If you like steak it’s really worth a visit.
Thank you for a great night.

Thank Nick F

A big thank you to all the staff at the Bowling Green. We paid a visit for our Easter Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. The Sunday roasts are amazing! The staff were fantastic - couldn’t have asked them to be more attentive. Well done and we will certainly be back.

We was really looking forward to visiting here after reading some of the reviews. But overall the food let our evening down. Big portions does not make up for rubbish food! A few leaves on a plate is not a salad, peppercorn sauce was not homemade, vile if anything. I don't usually leave reviews and this is actually my first one but I felt I had to after paying so much money for a sirloin steak and a pie!! The wine glasses were dirty, the place looks tired. There are nicer places to eat in Fenay Bentley and in the ashbourne market square.

Friendly staff and a really lovely meal. Starters were very good, and the steaks cooked perfectly. The chicken fricasse was beautifully moist with fluffy rice. Deserts were delicious. Service was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Often they have no tables on a Saturday which is testament to how good the food is, we luckily got a table mid-afternoon and enjoyed a VERY LARGE dinner for two. We shared all our plates as the food was so good! Definitely get something with Haggis when you're here. Their no-frill approach is great if you just want hearty country food.
