A village local with an extensive menu. The scenery is beautiful around this historic old pub. There are plenty of events to choose from as well.

Visited on 19th April 2014. Vegetables were lukewarm. Mashed potato was yellow and hard, as if it had been put under a grill to warm it up. Lamb pies tasted like mutton. Beef pie had odd taste.

This place should not call itself a pub, but a 'restaurant'. Don't go if you just want a drink... like you would in a pub! This pub has given itself up as pub.
Tables always have reserved signs on them, the last 3 times we've been for a drink, following a walk, we have not been able to get a table and sit down (so hence only stopped for one drink or not at all). As soon as the table finishes eating and leaves, it's cleared down and a reserved sign immediately goes up ready for the next lot. It's clear this pub is only interested in customers wanting food.
I shall not be attempting a drinking session again in this pub! Very sad.

Thoroughly disappointed and only half ate my meal of hunter's chicken in respect that the chicken was hard and chewy to eat, plus the cheese and bacon topping was cremated. Chips weren't much better.
I know I should have complained about the food but was mindful of the 35-minute wait it took in getting the meal, and the thought of the family having to wait around until I'd got and eaten a replacement.

Me and my son called there for dinner on our way from Oldham to watch a football match at Chesterfield. Had two Dambusters which were huge steak and ale pies with home-made chip wedges and vegetables.That and two pints of Coke cost only £13.50.
Best grub we have had for ages and will be going again when we play at Sheffield.

We have been going to the Old Horns at Bradfield for some time. The food is great and the staff are so friendly and accommodating. It is such a lovely atmosphere with great scenery. I would recommend it to anyone, carry on the good work John, Cassie and all your fantastic staff.

Lovely pub - nice beer, awful chips. Complained and was told it was the fault of the oil, and people loved them like that, also told I was the first to complain. The chips were cooked and reheated, the breadcake was of poor quality and a Big Mac would have beaten the overpriced Yorkshire burger by a mile. Won't eat there again.

This appears as a nice pub and is set in a lovely place. The food is also quite nice but this is spoilt by the rudeness of the under experienced staff that have little time for customers!
My friend and I asked for a table at Sunday lunchtime and were told there was no room, but we could sit on the end of someone else's table! When I pointed out that we didn't particularly want to sit with some people we didn't know, the waitress snapped back 'well you won't actually be with them will you' she then turned and stormed off! Priceless!

Please may I say that the Old Horns Inn is now under new management. The menu has something for everyone and the Sunday roast carvery is excellent! The management are very willing and eager to please.

In response to the last review, I would like to comment that the service since the new landlord came in has been top notch. I live locally and can't emphasise enough how much the atmosphere has changed and the quality of food has risen.
I think I can say for the whole village that there are now 3 good pubs in Bradfield to go to and the last comment is nothing but mischievous and obviously aimed at getting custom for 'the Castle'. I'm sure they do good food and service so I suggest you 'no city slicker' stay there.
Having met the new landlord and knowing he works in the kitchen I'm sure it wasn't him who made comments like that or served 'leather' steaks.
Since the new landlord has taken over it's been well worth a try, the lamb shanks are nice, I've eaten a few times and everything is home made. It's well worth a visit and try for yourselves.

I would like to say how disgusted I was not only with the food but also with the service that we received.
My partner asked for a medium rare steak and received what can only be described as a piece of old carpet. My daughter was served with a lamb shank that was just fat and bone, no meat to be seen. And I had a gammon steak that was so dry that it could have been used as a doorstop.
We tried discretely to complain, and the landlord grabbed my partners plate from him and said to my daughter "I'm not worried about yours it's out of a bag" then made a great scene and shouted across the whole pub "give these people their money back and get them out"! If this is how the other customers felt then it's a wonder they have any left.
We only live in Bolsterstone, and not a city slicker I thought it would be nice to try somewhere for a change. Never again. We will stick to the Castle - good food and a least Glynn knows how to look after his customers!

Went to the Old Horns after a group walk on Sunday 28th December 2008. Had an absolutely excellent lunch and very good value as well. Service couldn't be bettered.
Even though it was a busy time and there were about 10 of us, the serving staff found and reserved for us three adjacent tables in the bay window (lovely views) and brought our food reasonably promptly.
A good feature of the Old Horns is that it serves food until 7pm on Sundays - whereas many local pubs tend to finish serving at around 3PM or earlier (nice to have a meal or snack when you've had a walk).
Didn't try the beer as don't drink at lunchtimes for fear of falling asleep - but it's been OK in the past.
The landlord criticised in an earlier review has clearly either left or mended his ways!

I just want to comment on what a lovely pub the Old horns Inn at Bradfield is. We live in Mallorca (Spain) and visited the pub on a cold winters day in January. It is a beautiful pub with very friendly staff. We took plenty of photos and will remember this lovely place for a long time. The church in the village is also breathtaking. This really is a stunning part of the world.
We went to the Old Horns Inn on lunchtime of Sunday 27th August 2006 with my mother and her friend. We got a table and waited for my father and his friend who were walking to the pub to arrive. The first I knew of their arrival was when the landlord came charging out of the kitchen bellowing at my father as he had walking boots on. My father had no problem with taking his boots off, but as there was no sign requesting this, a polite request would have been sufficient (for the record, his boots were as clean as anyone else's shoes).
My girlfriend and I both ordered simple cheese & pickle sandwiches on white bread and the other four ordered various meat and cheese sandwiches on brown bread. On the first bite of my sandwich I was met with a terrible taste of chemicals (think toilet cleaner or Windolene - or both!). I thought at first it might just be a particularly strong pickle and tried another mouthful, but it was really awful. I asked my girlfriend how hers was, and she said 'it tastes of chemicals'! A couple of others at the table tried the sandwiches and agreed that they were very unpleasant.
In typical English fashion, I was just going to leave the food and say nothing about it. However, my father decided to take the plates back. The woman behind the bar said "where do you think you are going with those sandwiches"! He explained that they tasted very bad, and so she took them back into the kitchen. About a minute later the landlord came steaming out of the kitchen (again!), slammed £4.20 on the table and said "There's NOTHING wrong with it. It's the LASHINGS of pickle YOU put on it" and stormed off without another word.
Now call me crazy, but it's pretty easy to make a cheese sandwich, and pretty hard to get it wrong. If two customers say that a sandwich has a nasty chemically taste, then just accept that they are right and bring a new sandwich. As it happens, I'll never ever go back to the Old Horns Inn and neither will my parents or their friends. Hopefully, after reading my review, neither will you! There is absolutely no advantage in treating paying customers like that for the sake of two cheese sandwiches...
I'll give the pub 2/10 as the view from the restaurant is nice (providing the angry landlord isn't blocking your view!).
Just as a quick follow up to my previous review: my mother has just called to say what happened after me and my girlfriend left the premises.
As my parents and their friends left, the landlord AGAIN charged out of the kitchen and said "WHAT DID YOU SAY?". My mother said that she had merely commented that it was a shame the service and food was so bad because the pub and location was nice.
Amazingly, the landlord got right up in her face and shouted "YOU COME HERE WITH YOUR MUDDY BOOTS AND MESS UP MY CARPET AND COMPLAIN ABOUT THE FOOD - F**K OFF BACK TO THE CITY"!
Seriously, if you're going to this pub and you don't turn up in a combine harvester, this lunatic landlord will think you are one of "them there fancy lollin' city folks" and give you a load of abuse. Avoid like the plague!
