Very nice food and setting let down by painfully slow service. Gave up on desert or we'd have been there til the end of time.

Have already left 2 reviews previously, both of which were full of praise for the food but not for the service and the wait. Credit to the management, who welcomed my feedback and convinced me to try again. I'm delighted to say everything was spot on. Food just as good as it had been previously, but this time the service... More

Called into the Bullfinch as my friend and I were looking for a pub for a quick meal at lunchtime. We were met by Claire who was very friendly and welcoming. We both ordered the cheese & bacon burger (which was served very promptly) and my friend suggested it was one the best he'd ever had; not at all dry... More

Faultless. Just really well organised. Excellent food , even too much for my wife. (We had 2 roast beefs & I had a huge lamb shank to eat ) Didn't need to eat again that day. The email sign up offer at the Bullfinch is also a bonus on our Birthdays.

We have been going to the bullfinch for a few years now and always have the best time. In winter it's always so cosy with the fires lit and in summer there's the huge garden outside to sit and enjoy the sun. The food is always delicious. We had a roast on Sunday and it was yummy.

Went here today for Mothers Day and honestly it was terrible. Food was ok but the wait was unbearable.

Great place to meet up with friends on a Saturday evening. Plenty of parking. The pub was busy but it's spacious so we were able to be seated in a quiet area where we could chat easily (no loud music here!) It did get drafty though - a couple in our party ended up with coats on. We all enjoyed... More
