just a swift drink

Lovely olde-worlde pub in the village. Outdoor seating to front and rear. A little slow on serving even though the place was quiet.

We've been in The Bull's Head a few times this week as we've holidayed round the corner. The beer was good. The staff friendly. The beer garden was a lovely place to relax for a couple of hours. Give it a try!

We had a pub meal one Friday early evening, plenty of drinkers at the bar and a few reserved tables. This is a country pub with atmosphere and good beer too. No pretensions at all.

This is a fairly typical British pub. There's nothing on the menu to frighten the horses, nothing with "jus" or other fancy terminology. It does what it does and does it well. Perfectly acceptable if you're looking for somewhere unpretentious with good, home-cooked food.

We visited here several times during our weekend in Ashford In The Water. The staff and locals were very friendly and the food was good. The beer garden at the back was welcome on a hot summers day with fantastic views.
