We called in without a reservation, there were 10 of us (6 adults and 4 children). Staff were friendly & told us to move tables around in the bar to suit ourselves. No kids menu but smaller portions of main menu, which was a nice change from chicken nuggets etc. my children both had burgers, which we sent back as... More

I stayed here recently for one night, lovely looking little pub, friendly staff in restuarant but the food was, in my opinion, very average. Fairly steep prices for fairly small portions of 'average' food, but not dreadful (nothing needed sending back at least). People do say that the Sunday lunch is amazing, but we didnt stay that long, so cannot... More

Can't fault our stay. Everything in our room/suite was spotless and the bedroom and bathroom very spacious. Slept really well in a large comfortable double bed. Breakfast included everything you could want on request and the one evening meal we had was very good and better than The Bell nearby.(the only other palce to eat nearby). The location is on... More

We visited as our friend lives close by and loves it - well we concur! Very atmospheric pub with low beams and roaring log fire. Well spaced tables with comfy chairs and great ambience. The food we had was exquisite and service very good. Desserts were really different - had the orange cake served warm with cinammon cream and satsumas;... More

The inn is situated in the centre of the village and there is a spacious car park behind the hotel. We were advised not to arrive between 3pm and 6pm as the pub is closed and the doors locked but you can phone to check if there is someone who can let you in if arriving during this time. Our...

We stayed here for two nights in September. Its a good place to stay. Room 4 is massive with a large bathroom but it has a very mouldy shower not nice. They also serve a nice breakfast. Will stay again but for the price the shower needs sorting.

It's a while since I visited the Bull and 5 ofu s had a lunch in the bar. Despite not booking it was a busy Saturday, 1.15 but the service was fast and cheerful which i thought was pretty impressive. The ham hock salad was so tasty and the butternut squash soup was pronounced good. Huge fish and chips -... More

It has a great atmosphere as a pub, with classic Cotswold pub building and decor. However it does also fancy itself as a gastro pub. It has the gastro pub prices but the food is not up to the same standard. I had a 2 small slices of duck breast on a tiny amount of vegetables; no potato or rice,... More

We eat at the Bull frequently and are never disappointed. Friendly, helpful staff, good service and always good food, whether a light snack or full meal. I would recomend you try it. We will certainly keep going!

We recently discovered this tucked-away inn in Charlbury (Cotswolds). The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and we had an excellent meal. Even on a busy Saturday night the staff did not appear stressed and the food we had was all excellent freshly prepared food and we enjoyed the meal immensely. We will definitely eat there again.
