The shoot meets each day circa 9am to move off 9.15am from the Elks Head, Whitfield.

Owned and managed by the Estate, we provide lunches for all the Whitfield Shoot days as well as providing accommodation for teams taking days from further afield.

The Elk’s Head was redeveloped in 2010 to extend into an adjoining property. We now have ten smart and comfortable bedrooms each with its own sparkling new en suite or dedicated shower room or bathroom.

We have a small private dining room available, or you can dine in our brand new purpose built dining room looking out over the West Allen River and Blue Back Bridge.

The Elk’s Head is managed by Phil and Alison Johnston for the Estate. Phil is in charge of the kitchen and has established a fine reputation for his food locally and amongst visiting teams. We also have of course a good and varied wine list. Because we look after so many shooting teams, we know what people want. We are dog friendly, we have drying facilities if you get drenched, lashings of hot water, a secure room for gun storage and very comfortable beds!

For an independent valuation of staying with us, visit, where we have a growing number of glowing reviews.

If you would like to book accommodation please do so sooner rather than later as at certain times of year the pub can get very booked up. A booking form is provided on the Elks Head website, alternatively please contact our Managers, Phil or Alison Johnston on or telephone +44 (0) 1434 345282.
