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 :-)

The food was really tasty, nachos were lovely. All mains went down well with the family! Great selection on the menu. Nice area to sit outside if warm enough. Staff really friendly and helpful. Def a spot to pop in off the motorway

When working away from home a good friendly pub with great staff and great food is top of the list and after visiting every pub in Theale I can guarantee you get the package at the Bull. Good choice of drink and food and always top notch presentation and very friendly staff. You will not be disappointed!!!

We stopped for a quick lunch and were very pleased with the result. The beer was excellent [Wadworths] and the two ciabatta melts were very tasty, served quickly a very reasonably priced. Friendly staff added to the experience.

Went to the Bull as a change from visiting our favourite Theale pub (The Volunteer) for lunch. We were both really disappointed. The pub wasn't particularly busy but we still had to wait around 10mins to be served drinks at the bar. Following this our order of two sandwiches took well over an hour to arrive. I asked the waitress... More
