We gave this #1 as no option for 1/2. Visited this small pub yesterday, Saturday 27th Sseptember, for lunch. Ordered two soft drinks, one fish and chunky chips £14 and one scampi and chunky chips £13. Soft drink order had to be corrected twice, asked for a tiny splash of lime juice in soda, we asked to see as not... More

An idyllic pub full or character, great food, nice accommodation and wonderful staff!!! I seriously couldn't recommend it any more. We have been here a couple of times now because of the A* service you receive when you are there. The food was full of flavour (and style!) and the service was delivered with a smile. The staff will make... More

I love this place - its country charm; its fantastic food and its wonderful staff. I've eaten here a number of times with friends from the area and have never been disappointed. The menu is always so enticing, and executed perfectly too. I recently stayed in their accommodation when in the area for the races, and the rooms were just... More

We stayed and ate at The Bull whilst in the area for a long weekend with 8 friends. I don't often use Trip Advisor but the food and service was fantastic so I just wanted to say a "well done" to the guys who work there. The rooms were very tidy and clean and the bar area was very sociable... More

What can I say other than I whole-heartedly disagree with the negative review below. I go out of my way to visit this pub for the fantastic food, great service and atmosphere in general. When friends from London visit, this is my pub of choice and never yet has it disappointed. The staff strike a good balance in that they... More

Having been to The Bull on four previous occasions, usually with a party of associates with us either on business or pleasure, we have enjoyed the food although it is quite pricey for what it is, but have noticed that one of the hosts, Laura has always totally ignored us, only to fawn over some others. Tonight we went to... More

After having enjoyed a fantastic lunch here today with my husband, I have already recommended The Bull Inn @ Stanford Dingley to friends. The setting is lovely, the team there are friendly, but what I really enjoyed was the variety of food on offer. You can choose from traditional Sunday roasts and non-traditional lunch choices. The price might be above... More

My husband and I are staying here for two nights to visit nearby Highclere Castle and we are not disappointed. It's set in a lovely small hamlet and is visually very pretty. The rooms are fairly basic but with clean white Egyptian cotton bedding, fluffy white towels and a comfy bed a great stay for £50 per room per night.... More

Just an overnight stay en route to a dog show, my friend and I (and our 4 dogs) were made to feel very welcome, the staff were approachable, helpful and friendly. nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable with all the usual amenities. the evening meal was of a high standard and although... More

A business meeting for 3 at lunchtime. It wasn't wonderful. We sat outside, there was a lot of old bits of food on grass area around the tables so we had to watch where we put our feet. The food was just passable but drowned in too much butter. The order was wrong on the vegetables even though we had... More
