The Bowling Green Inn





"Everything is personal to us. We're not a big chain pub, we offer something more than that"

David Paterson - Landlord/head chef


Situated in the beautiful ancient market town of Ashbourne, The Bowling Green Steakhouse is the perfect destination for a fantastic meal out, or just a good old "swift beer" with friends

Our extensive menu, which is locally sourced where possible, offers a great selection of dishes to suit every taste. You may also notice a number of Scottish inspired options, unsurprising really given the fact that our owner and landlord both hail from north of the border!

A traditional roast is served every Sunday. A very popular choice so we keep serving until there is none left. Children's and 'Lighter Bites' menus are also available, as well as a specials board which is updated daily.

We pride ourselves on our personal service, warm welcome and cosy surroundings. We put care into everything we do and really look forward to making you feel at home when you next visit.
