The place was certainly busy on a Sunday afternoon- so I would advise booking in advance to be assured of a table. The quality of the food matched the popularity of the venue. I had the roast lamb dinner. The lamb was flavoursome. Roast Potatoes perfect. Veg was not soggy. A delicious gravy also. A delight to eat. Nice beers... More

We popped in as we were passing and enjoyed a lovely lunch. The food was delicious and hot. We cannot fault the service the staff were very helpful, friendly and made you feel welcome. We will visit again very soon as we can't wait to explore their menu. We had the sweet and sour fish with rice today and can... More

Nice find. A warm welcome as we entered the pub. Small bar area with larger dining. Traditional looking and warm atmosphere of diners. With a nice open fire to create a homely feel. British Thai food pubs can often have a bad reputation as being confused. Not the case here! The Thai food was plentiful and very authentic. Really enjoyed... More

We hadn't been to the Bull for several years so decided to give it a try. It's a traditional English pub with open fire; beams and timber flooring-one section looks like it was once a new old barn. For a Monday it was quite busy. For lunch we tried the Thai menu and it was very good - I had... More

Lovely, cute pub, open fire, decent food - traditional pub nosh & some great Thai dishes. Friendly service too & patient with kids too. Parking might be a little awkward if it gets really, really busy, but we've never had a problem.

We visited on a recommendation of a friend. The food served was a good size portion, I had the fish cakes for starters, one would have been plenty as the main course was a healthy serving. We all had different main courses and they were all very good.

I have eaten and enjoyed lunch and dinner on a number of occasions as couples and families. I have never been disappointed by the food or indeed the friendly and welcoming staff. This weekend was no different. The roast dinner my wife had looked lovely and apparently was very filling and my Thai Green Curry hit the spot perfectly. I... More

Nice pub serving mainly Thai food as well as a few Western plates. Good mixed menu with a couple of specials. Our starters were very mixed, the crispy squid was excellent albeit a bit small but the mixed platter was over fried. The prawn toast had no prawns, it was just like fried bread with sesame seeds on top, spring... More
