Having come here over 18months ago and booking the first floor for an event/wifes birthday party (which we loved), we thought we'd return/bring our friends that live near there to this pub as a bank holiday meal out. When I booked online for new yrs day there wasn't a problem on calling to ask if we could sit in the... More

We have been going to this pub for years but lately the service and food quality have steadily declined to the point where I could have sworn our waitress was high during our last visit a couple of months ago. We asked her about a new salad and she didn't know it and added that she usually doesn't order what... More

I was part of a large group from a sports club having our annual Christmas dinner. The first floor room was delightful, and we were made very welcome by the efficient and attentive staff, who were excellent. However the food was lamentable. Pre-ordered menu: a meagre portion of so-so smoked salmon which you could not really mess up; main course... More

Having been at The Bulls Head before with my boyfriend for drinks we were very pleased. The service was excellent and the pub gave off such a homely atmosphere. However, having experienced the food here for the first time today left us feeling dissatisfied. Both of our dishes were very bland which resulted in us not finishing our meal due... More

I have been to The Bulls Head a few times and I have to say that the ambience and decor are great - quite quirky. This establishment is clean, well presented and seems to be well managed. The staff are friendly and helpful. This pub is also well known for its jazz evenings but I have yet to attend one... More

Following our previous food experience at the Bull's Head we decided to keep coming here for the WOW jazz nights on Wednesdays and to patronize the bar, but to stay away from the food. And indeed we had been back quite a few times for drinks and jazz until a week ago when we found ourselves invited out to join... More

The first thing I have to say is what a huge shame it is to be leaving such a negative review for this venue. My family have been coming here for the past few years and have always got on so well with the staff and had great meals. This has hugely changed now new management have taken over (or... More

We held our wedding reception in the event room upstairs. The staff were amazing and were really helpful in ensuring our day went exactly to plan. The food was delicious and had rave reviews from all our guests! The pub is in a beautiful location and the views of the river (despite the rain) we're the perfect backdrop.
