Often visit here - and love the quick bar menu - quirky serving - re wire chip baskets and chopping boards for sandwiches. Quick service - sat outside until wasps became too much so retreated indoors - not so nice as lovely sunny day. Tasty food as ever BUT bagguette was touch and covered in sea salt - PLEASE dont...

I stopped at this hotel, after the hotel in Theale I booked was really bad. I stopped for 2 nights, and loved the room, food, pub atmosphere, and service. Food I had the Toad in the Hole with garlic mash, I thought it was brilliant. I forced a Eton mess, which also was equally as brilliant. Room After coming from... More

Stayed here for one night as we were attending a family wedding nearby. Honestly it was probably the worst housekeeping we have ever seen - the sheets were clean thank god but the lamps were full of cobwebs - the light bulbs were mostly duds and the bathroom was like something from a horror movie. The room was generally dirty... More

My wife and I need a room for 1 night, as our canal boat was in dry dock at Newbury having its bottom blacked. we booked through last minute.com. The Bull is in a lovely location off the beaten track. Sadly it was raining so could not take advantage of the many public footpaths around. Very good value for money.... More

Although I don't live in the village, The Bull Inn has become a favourite. Whether it's just for a drink or a meal, the staff Re always very friendly and accommodating. It has a lovely atmosphere and cosy decor. It's lovely in the winter when the fire is burning and the dogs are curled up under the tables. A must... More

For me to leave a negative review takes a lot but having stayed here last night and paid £55 for a room only I was horrified to find a room covered in thick dust and cobwebs! The toilet was also dirty with a welcome gift from the last occupants or the cleaner but I am not even sure one of... More

There are rooms to the rear of the pub, in this nice peaceful location between Reading and Newbury... except there are chickens roaming freely outside, and making rather a noise early in the morning! The room was very nice, clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced.

Looking forward to staying in a picturesque village and in a 15th Century Inn for a couple of nights whilst I was away for business. Made the mistake of not checking reviews beforehand! The Bull Inn was full of character and had reasonable bar food too. Not very friendly female staff at the bar rather talk to each other really.... More

went for a meal but this was a disappointment after previous visits. Strangely quiet given previous visits the place was packed. Ordered langoustines but they were disappointingly small and the lighting so poor that I couldn't see to find the meat. When asked if everything was ok I made my point to be told that she thought they were a... More

Upon arrival we were shown to our room and within minutes we noticed two large spiders above the bed on the ceiling and many thick cobwebs hanging down. We notified the pleasant young girl in the bar who asked a gentleman to assist in the removal, however, due to the ceiling being so high, he was unable to reach them.... More
