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 interior was a bit dingy, the finning area certainly lacked character, felt more like a social club....food was okay, but not gonna rush back........plenty of better options close by in our opinion....staff where really good though, truly excellent

The bull has such a lovely atmosphere, the landlord is so polite and welcoming and the bar staff are excellent too.

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.

There were 6 of us in the group with me being the only one who has eaten here before, so all trust was on me. I wasn't worried as the food was excellent with proper steaks & not thin slices. The lamb pie melted in your mouth . Oh gosh I'm hungry thinking about it.

We've been here a couple of times for a Sunday roast and we've always enjoyed it! It's really nice to see a decent veggie roast with all the trimmings for once, though we have to admit that it was better when we visited early in 2014 than when we visited in June. It's also nice that they allow adults to... More

Staff very friendly and place started to get busy just after we arrived so we could see it was popular. I had a very nice garlic and lemon chicken salad and my friend had a sandwich. service very quick.

We called in for lunch on sunday as we fancied something 'different; to a sunday roast. I had the home made fishcakes & my OH had Jerk Chicken. Both meals were great and the staff attentive. We will be back :-)
