So each has demonstrated remarkable creativity – plus excellence and willingness to evolve – in a changing and challenging industry.â€
This is what it says for The Bullâ€™s Head at Mobberleyâ€™s entry in the guide:
You feel warmth as soon as you walk through the door. Candles glow on the tables of this pretty village pub, fires crackle, and the staff couldnâ€™t be nicer. Under a low-beamed ceiling, six hand pumps dispense the finest local ales from Storm, Wincle and Redwillow as well as the inimitable Mobberley Wobbly â€“ ale is king! Add in a Highland extravaganza of 70 malts and other tempting brews and you have the makings of a celebration. Chef Lloyd cooks â€˜pub classics from the heartâ€™ with full English flavours; the steak and ale pie is a fully encased masterpiece in itself, and the Irish whisky sticky toffee pudding too indulgent for words. With outside tables for sunny days, this is as good as it gets for a village pub.
