Very Average

I liked that the gang at the bar were locals and really enjoying each other and the bar tender. I grew weary when they were more important than everyone else in the bar. Food was average. I had some chili and beer. Maybe I was in the wrong spot. Loved Battle.

Went as 4 adults and 2 children (12& 2 yr olds for a late Sunday lunch).Really friendly and helpful waitress. Ordered off menu for 2 yr old (how DannyDevito) but it was absolutely no problem. Starters were good. Two of us had roast pork and it was ok but not out of this world, however the food is reasonably priced... More

I have frequented the Bull Inn a number of times for meals and lunchtime drinks since working in Battle. Each time I have the same experience, which can be summed up with the title. Great beers, good staff but the food is average at best. First the positives...beer selection is great, nice lagers, local bitters, with a mix of the... More

The grub and the beer..........the service was excellent too. A roaring fire kept the cold at bay and we enjoyed a healthy dinner in the rear bar.

Have eaten in this pub before and thought it was very good, however that was over a year ago. We tried hard to get a table, making several calls on the evening before, leaving messages, as the phone was not answered. Eventually we had a reply the following day. The pub was busy when we arrived which is the standard... More

what a disappointment! We went for our Christmas evening and selected from the Christmas menu. Unfortunately some of our main dishes came without the seasonal Veg.and on enquiry was told it would take 10 mins if we wanted some. Our table serving was interrupted while dishes were brought out to another table so our party had to wait. No Christmas... More

Went for a quick lunch and ordered 2 baguettes. Took 45 minutes to arrive and were terrible when they did. Very stale bread. People who ordered a good 15 mins after us received their full main meals before us, which just didn't make sense. Staff were lovely, just let down by really poor food.

At first seems like a local drinking establishment with the odd contractor.. Ordered food with friendly staff and we were taken by surprise by the quality of the food .. Although nothing fancy this was good value , honest homemade food without all of the battle yuppie / tourist trimmings.will visit again.

Good in town Pub. On the High Street. Food and Drinks served well and with a smile and chat. We live locally and on occasions pop in . Patrick is a good chef, offering a well priced and well prepared menu. Worth a visit if you are in town.
