“Lively but welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

After trying somewhere else first and feeling a little disappointed we then went to the Bulls Head. The food was very tasty and it was very popular quite a few raucous tables (which wasn't a problem I hasten to add). Reasonable price and the waitress was very friendly. An enjoyable evening.

“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The food and service were good, steaks cooked as requested, we stayed there for the whole of the evening and the waitress was excellent. The only downside was that the weather was cold and the dinning room could have done with more heating. There was a small heater by our table but it only heated people were the heater was situated and not the whole party.
