We have regularly eaten at the Bull for a few years now and until recently the food and service has always been good. However, in recent months there has been a change in management and the staff are now sullen and rude and the food has gone downhill rapidly. We ordered steaks recently and the my wives was very overcooked.... More

Went early evening recently with my partner. Cask ales were superb so no complaints there at all. However table not clean, no menu, no serviettes, not enough cutlery and rubbish on the floor under the table. It was very quiet as well. I had cod and chips which was OK but mushy peas were cold. Wife had beef burger which... More

Not as good as when we went on Boxing Day last year, although the staff wee all delightful. The restaurant was not very warm. I had the prawns to start and there was no bread with them, despite there being a pat of butter lying in the plate, by the time a waitress reappears I had finished the starter. Chose... More

first visit here on way home as every pub was busy, so thought we would give this a try and looked a welcoming pub.. Overall just very disappointing from the moment we sat at out table which had not been wiped from previous customers not a problem we thought the waitress will clear it shortly...or maybe not! She came to... More

Had Sunday dinner last night - restaurant was very cold and not comfortable. Although the waitress who served us was pleasant - others had faces like thunder. I ordered prime rib beef which was more like topside, tough and chewy and only 2 small slices. The veg, especially the parsnips were oversized and nothing special. Overall the 4 roast meals... More

Torrential rain persuaded my partner and I to stop off at this pub/restaurant for lunch. I had a two fish cake lunch served with muscles and salad with potatoes. This was very tasty and my partner had a beef burger. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal, service was good and for £18.00 with drinks one couldn't complain. We didn't wait long for... More

Went for a meal with my wife. Sat by a radiator with peeling paint that looked like it was from an old school. The floor was tiled and the place just looked a bit cold and uninviting. They've certainly squeezed tables into every nook and cranny. The area also stunk of vinegar?? The waitress was pleasant enough though there was... More

Had Sunday lunch today, had starters of soup and prawn cocktail followed by a Sunday roast platter to share, I must say it seemed a little bizarre to be presented with a plater which you have to split between two which was covered in gravy so very messy too, but I guess the clue is in the title (our mistake)....

Fri lunch time after a country walk in nearby Weeford. This is a delightful Pub with roaring fires and low wooden beams little nooks and crannies. Bass bitter is well kept. Good Menu with specials on the board. I had the Venison Pudding which unfortunately had gristley chunks in two of the first three mouthfuls which killed any chance of... More

First visit for family birthday yesterday and had a great time. We had requested a table in a corner for my dad who is hard of hearing and they found an ideal location for us. Our drinks and food orders were taken very quickly. The menu was very comprehensive with traditional Sunday roasts and other foods available. Most of us... More
