I come from Birmingham and can honestly say that I fully recommend using the bull for both food and drink. In all my visits I have had a wonderful time where the staff have been very pleasant and attentive. I would wholeheartedly say that passing trade should stop off as I've personally been made extremley welcome and had a thoroughly... More

Once again visited The Bull Inn for a bite to eat, and wasn't disappointed. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table, our food was fantastic and service was excellent. Great value for money and a well recommended pub to eat.

......and pricey with it! We stopped off based on reviews previously read. Although the service was friendly and adequate the small ' restaurant' area we were directed to was functional rather than 'characterful '. The menu was varied but pricey for pub grub. Our sirloin steaks were rather tough and presentation was some what basic with chips in a small... More

I am sorry you felt we offer dated dining, I'm not too sure what that actually means does it mean dated surroundings or dated menu? My staff are trained to table check every table soon after the main course has been served which gives all my customers the opportunity to say whether their meal is not up to standard, nothing...

Another visit to The Bull and once again it exceeds expectations. I love the historic exposed beams and character, excellent service, gastro food pub with a warm Country welcome and friendly locals. This has to be one of my favorite pub/restaurants in the UK, just passing or make the trip, you wont be disappointed (try the Sunday Roast!). It would... More

Went to the bull inn last week on the recommendation of a friend. Well it may be up to his taste but for me was very tacky looking, old style pub which is good but really needs refurbishment. We where given are table which really needed a good wipe down before giving to another customer, the wine glass dirty just... More

We agreed to meet a relation from another part of the country for lunch, near where she was staying. Not knowing that area well, I looked on line and chose the Bull as it was easy to get to and the reviews were favourable. Good choice, ŵe all agreed as we left. True they were not busy on a Thursday... More

We used to visit this pub a lot, but hadn't been for a few years. On the strength of the reviews we went for lunch. Unfortunately, I think we hit a bad day. The menu was very limited as the usual chef was not on duty. The service was sweet but very slow as only one person on duty for... More

It was myself having to cook it was my head chefs day off and my usual stand in chef called in sick that morning - so needs must rather than close the kitchen I stood in. Our... More

Popped in after driving past for a few years. Should have stopped sooner. The menu was interesting with lots of choice. The food was cooked to order. It was delicious home cooked food. The portions were large with lots of fresh vegetables. The staff were welcoming and helpful. A great place to get out of the rain!

We had a couple of Chinese students staying for the weekend and wanted to show them a 'real country pub'. I had visited the Bull a few times when i worked in Farnham but hadn't been there for about 5 years. Although the place was about half full, it being a Saturday lunchtime we didn't have to wait long to... More
