The Bulls head is a great little place just £9 in a taxi from Manchester airport. The rooms are very nicely done out, the beds extremely comfy and they give you fresh milk for a 'brew' upon arrival. Nice touch Next door the beer and atmosphere in the pub are great, the only hung that lets it down is the... More

The bedrooms have just been completely renovated and I have to say they are very nice. The whole stay from check-in to breakfast was a delight. Apparently they are doing the pub up soon, if they do it as good as the hotel rooms then the Bulls Head will be unbeatable for the money.

Since the new management have taken over this lovely family pub it has gone downhill. The manager was drunk and swearing at customers and staff, he was very rude and it was obvious that the staff were used to and embarssed about his behaviour. He publicly told memebers of staff that they were bad at their jobs. I will not... More

After reading several reviews we decided to try The Bulls Head Pub for an evening meal while we were staying overnight nearby. The whole experience was excellent. The bar staff were amazingly friendly and efficient. The menu was very varied and the prices extremely reasonable. I chose two items from the appetizer menu rather than a larger main meal. The...

Hale Barns seems a very posh suburb of Manchester - all Mock Tudor and 4-wheel drives. The pub seemed very appealing, though noisy at the time of our arrival (11 pm). Fortunately, the Lodge is separated from the pub by a large carpark, and was quiet. Our reception was excellent - very helpful and friendly staff, and we had all... More

We stayed here for 7 nights when visiting family and friends, the location was ideal for both Manchester Airport and the motorway. Our room was lovely and quiet, good wifi connection, quite basic, but cleaned every day and fine for our needs. There were no complimentary toiletries in our room apart from liquid soap in a dispenser. We ate in... More

We went for sunday lunch which was very nice. The guys serving the food and the lady clearing the tables were great and very friendly, which cannot be said about the 2 bar men, who were positively rude and let the place down. Took ages to get served and even had to ask for glasses for the drinks !!!
