The menu is a curious mix of gastropub and Thai and that makes it feel a little confused. On arrival, we were presented with a normal bound menu and a loose page of specials. On reflection, there was a enough selection on both types of menu, altough neither would be as extensive as a trad Thai/gastropub. Most of my party... More

Took lunch here with my family. Excellent food and certainly value for money. Ample portions. Very helpful and freindly staff. Two youngsters in our party very happy with the kids fare. No problems at all - and can recommend.

Went here recently with my wife. The menu is mostly Thai inspired although there are classic pub favourites. I started with whitebait, which were ok (not sure if the guts were removed). My wife had the dumplings, she said they were tasty. She had the pork belly for main and found the sweet and sour vegetables to be a bit... More

Very much a pub in terms of atmosphere and decor but service and above-average food make this more of a restaurant experience. We sampled both Thia and more traditional disses between us - both very good, the thai dishes well spiced and nicely presented, steak cooked exactly as required and lovely chips! Required gluten-free and the waitress able to advise... More

Great to see a local pub being run well and always busy. On a warm summers evening they were full for food and had no room for walk ups past 7pm. Great selection of beers including Timothy Taylor which you don’t often see in the south. Plenty of outside seating too. They do a great calamari starter and I enjoyed... More

The atmosphere, service and food is excellent. Four of us went for dinner last weekend. We were offered a very varied menu along with the specials board so there is something for everyone including Thai dishes. We had a starter for two between the four of us, hoping that would leave enough room for a dessert after the main course... More

I have been to the bull a few times now - it is very busy so be sure to book - but the food and beer are exceptional. Food is cooked to perfection/ delivered with a smile and without a long wait. They have also been very accommodating when dining with a little one.

Arrived 20 past 7 on a sunday and apparently they close at 7pm. Was told rather rudely that they were shut. I have given this pub lots of chances in the 10 years I have lived in Barkham with over 4 or 5 new residents. I won't be back again before it changes hands. Only wanted a quick drink in... More

I joined friends and had a great time on Monday evening for the Quiznight. The Thai food was particularly authentic and the hosts and service very welcoming.
