A group of five of us visited the bull on a recommendation for lunch. On arrival the pub was very busy and we were advised of a wait time. We decided to wait and was glad we did! The food was clearly fresh and we all enjoyed it very much. The staff were friendly and it was a good atmosphere.... More

I have had several meals at The Bull and they continue to get better and better. The Lamb Steak off the Specials Board is cooked to perfection and the Rib eye steak is always medium rare as requested. Very good value for money.

This is our local pub and we love it. The food is excellent and we've never been disappointed. Just popped in over lunchtime today for a couple of drinks and a quick bite to eat. The staff are always friendly and this is one of the best pubs in Theale village. Definitely worth a visit.

The bull has such a lovely atmosphere, the landlord is so polite and welcoming and the bar staff are excellent too. I would definitely recommend trying the food here, the portion sizes are excellent and make sure... More

Great local pub, fresh food and good selection of beers from Wadworth's. Friendly staff, even allow dogs to come in and provide water for the poch as well. Big menu choice with snacks and full courses.
