“Sticky Table Pub”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I guess we have all done this, been out with the family all day and call into a very nice looking country pub for a bite to eat on the way home. This is where it all went wrong; don’t be fooled by the pretty flowers, outside the entrance door, I went into the restaurant bar and ordered some drinks, I asked what time do you stop serving food, the bar staff replied 9.30, so I asked if I could set up a tab and sit outside as the weather was fantastic, I was informed you cannot have a tab and sit on the decking, tabs are only for customers who sit inside! I asked the member of staff could we have a table inside as I wanted to pay using my Visa card. We were shown to a table, where the previous customers dinner had not been cleaned away from probabbly from the table and the place mats were stuck to the table with what I can only assume is sticky ice cream, Nice!! However, when we sat down we were handed the menus and within 5 minutes we were asked by a member of staff could I take your order, and she stood there until we looked through the menu with an expression of come on hurry up. When the food arrived it was poor and overdone

“Will never go back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Went today all problems were everybody else's fault,obviously thought over 2 hours to wait for a plaice dish that had as much fish as a piece of scampi was acceptable. The landlady is manipulative when dealing with complaints making you feel that you are in the wrong for daring to question anything about her pub.

“Average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

After visiting the bull and butcher on numerous times, I can say it has a good outdoor area for the children to play and see the animas! As for the food I can say that it is very average and the breakfast is served with the cheapest sausage and bacon you can imagine! No such thing as service with a smile.

“lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

great menu, great atmosphere and a good pint. Places like this are what makes England a good place to visit. The Lamb was perfect and steak and ale pie was spot on.
