“Surprise package”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Went here with some friends (8 in total) as a last minute meet up. Food was good quite a wide selection, a touch pricey but you pay for what you get, staff friendly especially as we had a new born baby, they cleared a table for all of us out of the way which was nice. Atmosphere was good, there were locals having a drink in the bar but not to loud. Only negative I would say was there was no baby changing facilities which if it advertises itself as a family pub they could fo with investing in some. Overall tho a thumbs up, if your in the area give it a whirl

Hi there and thanks for your kind review of The Bulls Head. It sounds as though you enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service which is always nice to hear. We are not particularly a family pub (and don't advertise as such) but always welcome those with little ones, and do our utmost to accommodate all customers who visit us. Our prices reflect the highest standards of fresh food and personal service and we think we offer great value for money in this marketplace. We do hope you visit us again soon and thanks for your custom and feedback.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I called in for lunch after a walk. I chose the Salt Beef sandwich and my wife chose the Chicken BLT.

Both were superb!

hi there, and thanks for your "short but sweet" review of our pub. We are really pleased you enjoyed your visit, as "superb" is the standard we strive to deliver. Our bar snacks menu is great for those out for a walk in the lovely countryside surrounding us, and of course we have a more substantial menu for those wanting more than a sandwich. We look forward to you visiting us again soon.

“Best Roast Beef Ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Short and straight to the point - best roast beef I have ever had in any restaurant/ pub, ever! Food is of a consistently high quality and the Sagres is good too.

Hi there Gareth, thanks for your great review of The Bulls Head. We have been busy undertaking a major refurbishment, so apologies it has taken a little time to respond to you. We are now re-open in fabulous surroundings, and we continue to deliver great food, drinks and hospitality. We hope you come and try the new-look Bulls Head very soon.

“Pie to die for!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

My husband made an impromptu stop at the Bulls Head for a late lunch, it has changed hands a couple of times recently so we were a little intrepid, but being almost our local we wanted to give it another go, and we weren't disappointed.

We both went for the ham hock and leek pie, recommended by the landlord, and what a good recommendation, wow it was fab and super filling, yes the chunky chips are still as good as they ever were.

The atmosphere is also as good as ever, very welcoming, we will be back soon

Hi Louise, We are really chuffed that you had a great experience at The Bulls Head and took the time write. We do have a great menu of home cooked food and are over the moon that you thought our pie was "to die for!". It really is pleasing when people write to tell us that we are getting it right, and we appreciate your comments and feedback. We hope to see you soon, and hope you will have another 5-star visit!

“Birthday Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We ate at the Bull's Head on Saturday 08.12.12. It was my husband's birthday. He couldn't decide where to eat, due to snow earlier in the week. Eventually we decided not to go far and as members of a 'Thursday Fellowship Meeting' who had their Annual Dinner there in November, we decided to return, as we had been impressed. I was pleased to have a number of choices of food that I could eat (I have a sensitivity to dairy & yeast products) Eventually, I choose a mixed grill and my husband choose a Lasagne. Neither of us had room for a sweet course. In fact I was so impressed, that I am considering booking their function room for husband' s ' big' birthday celebration next year.
