We called in here at about 16:00 for dinner on Sun 17/08 with our Brother in law who lives nearby. The pub was fairly busy but not packed. We had to wait for a table we were told that there would be one cleared in about ten minutes. After waiting for over half an hour we noticed that customers who... More

Went for Sunday lunch with my husband. I had the slow cooked lamb and he had the slow roasted pork belly. On arrival the food looked promising with a big Yorkshire pudding on top. It wasn't till my husband lifted the Yorkshire he realised that it was hiding the fact that there was hardly any pork. The food was nice... More

I pop in quite regularly for a bite to eat or a coffee with friends. It very much depends on when you go and whether or not there is enough staff working. More often than not there are not enough members of staff to manage this pub/restaurant to reduce the waiting times for drinks and food for customers. Staff are... More

Firstly this is not aimed at the staff who were all very helpful. We did not have to wait any time at all to be shown to our table. We were asked what drinks we wanted and given menus to see what food we would choose whilst waiting for our drinks which did not take long to arrive. 3of our... More

I was amongst a party of about 50-60 people for a sit down meal at a wedding reception on a Saturday afternoon. Although the food was pre-ordered (something that I don't normally like doing, but fully understand the reasons behind it), it came out of the kitchen in a very professional way. As well as our food arriving, the kitchen... More

We visited on 13th July (party of 6) none of us had cause to be negative, however the meal was an average sunday lunch. Meat (pork, turkey, beef) were plentiful. Beef was very tender and tasty, but a little fatty in places. stuffing was a... More

We have eaten at The Bull a few times now, generally on a weekday evening, and the food has been consistently good. The restaurant is comfortable with a few cosy corners. The staff are polite and helpful. The menu is slightly upmarket pub grub, and in our experience, well delivered. For those who like a beer, the pub also usually... More

Having just walked 6 miles around the North Downs we decided we deserved a well earned rest, unfortunately we chose the Bull. Firstly I don't like finding a table number and ordering at the bar, and here they were clearly not geared up for this. Our party of 10 had to all queue at the bar for about 10 minutes,... More
