Its proximity to Lyme Park makes The Ram’s Head a perfect destination for tasty home-cooked food after a family excursion. We dropped by in winter when the blazing log fire and aroma of mulled cider made for a cosy welcome.
It has several different areas, with a few large tables tailor-made for families. The staff were very accommodating, handing out puzzles to our high-spirited bunch, which thankfully kept them amused for a while. The children’s menu at £4.95 had plenty to choose from. There were the usual suspects but also a few great additions such as pigs in blanket, with mash and gravy, or chicken with crispy sweet cured bacon salad. The adult selection almost falls into the gourmet pub category; our Sunday roast beef was delicious. A grassy beer garden at the rear has plenty of room for running around. If you’re Marple Bridge way, it may be worth checking out its sister pub The Midland.
