user reviews of Black Bulls Head, Belper

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I was hugely impressed on my visit to the BBH on a Friday afternoon. Everything about this place just cries out "great pub".

From the range of quality ales available in the main bar, to the many separate drinking areas tastefully decorated, it is a credit to the owners.

The Bedlam Bar serves up four more ales and four ciders straight from the cask. You just have to stay on and sample that, as we did.

Very handy for the Belper to Derby bus service, so you can use public transport and really enjoy your visit.

Well done. 10/10.

This used to be a popular Hardy's and Hanson's pub until Greene King took over and closed the H & H Brewery at Kimberley. From there on (as with a lot of other former Kimberley pubs) things went downhill very quickly. Most discerning local drinkers simply voted with their feet resulting in many formerly thriving community pubs sadly being closed for ever.

Fortunately, the Black Bull's Head is one of the moribund ex Kimberley pubs that has bucked that trend and been rescued from obscurity by new owners and within a short time have become very desirable and popular places to enjoy quality beer again.

The Furnace Inn in Derby and the Queen's Head at Little Eaton are two other shining examples.

The Black Bull's Head now serves an excellent selection of up to 8 mostly locally brewed ales and has deservedly been voted Amber Valley CAMRA's Pub of the Year for both 2013 and 2014. On my last visit the beers ranged from Castle Rock Harvest Pale (3.8% ABV) to Oakham Brewery's Green Devil IPA (6.0% ABV). But beware of the mega cheese and onion cobs !!! No hesitation 10/10.

Right up there with the top pubs in Derbyshire.

Good selection of well kept beers at reasonable prices in a clean, friendly pub.

All sounds good, but not outstanding, right?

What makes this pub exceptional is the weekend only Bedlam Bar. I won't give you any details, it would spoil your delight at finding it.
