Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Good local food

Only a day later than promised. A friend of ours dropped in unexpectedly and stayed overnight so that was the end of good intentions for yesterday.

Anyway, we went with some other friends recently to the Saracen’s Head at Shirley.  Now, Shirley is the other side of Ashbourne so it is not exactly in our immediate orbit but a 20-25 minute drive away; however it is well worth those extra minutes and miles if you’re after what should be a happy food experience.

The Saracen’s Head  calls itself a gastro-pub; it wasn’t cheap, but one wouldn’t have expected it to be. The decor was bright and clean, the service very pleasant,  we all enjoyed our respective meals very much and plan to return when waistband and purses allow.
