I've been going to the Bull Inn quite frequently recently for meals and socialising. To be completely honest I can't find a negative. I've had a few excellent Sunday roasts that were more than plentiful, and tasted great (roasters were crisp and fluffy - recommended). Rack of ribs were smothered in a bbq sauce and I only just finished the... More

I can't even explain how grateful I am for having found this place! It was probably 2am when my boyfriend and I pulled over cos we were beyond too cold to continue our journey (on a motorbike) to London. Not only did they greet us with big fat smiles, they made us tea and let us stay inside for a... More

Long story short I underestimated how cold it would be to ride a motorcycle from Southampton to London through the night. Myself and my girlfriend arrived there at 1am when they were closed, they still let us in, allowed us to use their bathroom to freshen up and EVEN gave us tea and allowed us to stay as long as...

As soon as we entered the pub we were met with a warm welcome and shown to our table. For a Tuesday night there were more people dining than I had expected but maybe this was an indication of how good the food was.We started with some crusty bread, Olives and balsamic/olive oil dip - the bread was served warm...

This is what a good old fashioned pub is all about. The food was excellent, traditional good quality food cooked to order. Service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The prices weren't over the top at all and the portion sizes were just right. We will definately be visiting again. Thank you for a lovely evening...

Have a look at the specials board for the 2 course lunch which seems good value. I had soup with bread and the fishcake on salad which was tasty and a good size. It looked more interesting then the ham egg and chips. Average service, tasty food , busy road outside but inside seating available.
