This is primarily a Pub that offers GOOD food!. In 2016, the tenancy was taken over, and as result, the food has suffered, in a negative way. The ambience is stark and uninviting, with no glasses behind the bar, optics or menus on the empty dirty tables. Please think twice.

Beautiful open fire situated next to the bar. I pass through most evenings for a social and all the regulars are a lovely friendly bunch.

Good food served quickly, and very well priced. Friendly staff who accommodated our work do perfectly, we would certainly return

Had visited previously with good beers and food, but this weekend was very dissatisfied with the Sunday roast which came in a deep plate-bowl with roasted new potatoes not the traditional roasties and the whole thing was drowned in 2.5cm of gravy which in itself wasn't very pleasant either. That said that service was very good. Dissatisfied from Alton.

It was also... More

I went with friends from work for a Christmas meal, I couldn't believe it, it was cold no atmosphere no Christmas decorations. We had three courses, the prawn cocktail was nothing like a prawn cocktail!!! The turkey dinnner was covered with this very strong salty and pungent gravy everything tasted of this. I haven't been in the Bull for quite... More

We went with family and my nephews. We had the roasts which were great. Good portions and gravy was great. Service is good and we haven't eat any desserts but I have seen my next table had sticky toffee smells awesome. It's great spot for dine. Really good we will definitely back!!

Oh dear, just back from a really disappointing lunch experience at the bull. Can't get the taste of the rock salt out of my mouth. Didn't know that it had changed hands and glad not to have made the hour long walk there. We did try last Thursday but it was shut at 10 past one. 12 people turned up... More
