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.

The meal and the evening were actually quite good until we came to pay. We were told the card machine was broken so we carefully watched as the card was swiped through the old fashioned counterfoil machine and a call to verify was made. The next day our bank called to ask about a £800 request from Barkham. Not the... More

We wanted to make a stop in Barkham with the idea that maybe our family, the Balls, once lived there. Not having any specific destination, we chose to stop and eat at the Bull at Barkham based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed! We had great food that met everyone's different tastes and Mike was such a great... More

Great lunch, only popped in for a short while. This is our second visit and once again, very good. The staff are very friendly and the prices are too. (£10-£13 ish for a veg/chicken or prawn green curry). Last time we took the dog, who was welcomed with dog biscuits on the bar... I should say that dog friendly does... More

This is a typical old pub with a twist. The twist is that as well as typical pub grub they also sell Thai food & it is delicious . There are also more beers on draught than we have seen in a pub. Service is very good and it is value for money.

I hadn't been here for a while but I was very pleased. My friend and I sat outside in the shady garden (there is sun if you want it). The service was good. The Ceaser Salad (main) was the best I have had in a long while. Oodles of chicken, bacon and anchovies and plenty of parmesan. The Thai dishes... More

Whilst the pub itself is a bit dated, the food is excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
