Good Thai food

We went on a relatively quiet Tuesday evening. The service was good and friendly. I had the massman curry which was very tasty and had lots of lamb in it.

We really like the bull at barkham it is just a normal pub with friendly service and great food. The pub allows dogs which I don't have a major problem with but if the owners can't make sure the dogs are clean than I do have a problem. We sat near to two labs and they stunk to high heaven... More

Decided to visit the bull for a change. Drinks arrived quickly, food ordered promptly. However we waited nearly an hour for food. Food was ok though both my chicken and my dad's lamb was dry. Mum opted for a special option she was told was milder than Thai green curry which apparently it was not- very spicy and not many... More

Thai cuisine is a speciality. Although the steak is excellent too. Very friendly staff, make a great jug of Pimms.

I phoned 3 weeks in advance and booked table 1 (round table by the window). I also phoned again with a query and double checked... More

Visited The Bull for the first time for Sunday lunch. Was recommended by a dog friendly pub guide. Lots of parking with a decent beer garden which is where we had our lunch. Good choice of English and Thai dishes and the portions were of a decent size and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and service was good.... More
