Description: Seasonal food in unspoilt surroundings The Hartshead in Ashton-under-Lyne is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar. Book a table online and enjoy a spot by our roaring log-fire. Or make the best of the British summertime by eating alfresco in our pretty beer garden. A little Pub history The inn is named after Harsthead Pike, the monument situated at the beacon point of the area. It is possible to see the counties of Cheshire Lancashire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire from the Pike. There has been a building on the hill for centuries. The present tower built in 1863, is the third on the site, as previous towers have collapsed. On the edge of the Peak District, this impressive inn at Mossley offers great walking and splendid views. Originally a farmhouse built in the early 1800s (recently restored) it is named after the Hartshead Pike monument.

I stopped there for a quick bite one evening, nice food, decently priced, to be honest, not worth writing a review over , until we left and heard the staff in what we presume to be staff quarters, chatting, and the language was shocking. real abusive and vulgar . The upstairs is level with the car park where we parked, and it was shocking.... usually i feel guilty putting poor reviews on as i tend to speak to management before i leave, but didn't this time as was really shocked.

Had a meal in the patio area , reasonable value , ok food , good location, does not seem to be as busy as it once was.
Staff pleasant enough but I think there is a lot of better offers in the vicinity.

Standards seem to have slipped. Service was slow & main took ages to come. Food wasn’t as nice as it’s been & portions seemed smaller.

Fantastic views shame about my food
Went for lunch and was seated and served immediately. However, I ordered duo of lamb when the food arrived it was like hunt the meat in the shepherd’s pie when I complained the waiter offending item was taken off the bill btw the other 2 meals were great!
the problem was dealt with in a professional manner, we would go back and give it another go .
