Very friendly staff and the new menu has much more of a variety than under the previous owner. Food is well prepared, good portion size and well priced. Definitely going back again

Lovely food. Good sound pub grub, and really lovely staff. Good service. But the noise from the very busy main road made it very unpleasant to sit outside on a summers night. Lots of nasty midges under the trees too. Outdoors is a bit scrubby really....abandoned and broken items of garden furniture are lying around. Maybe it's a lovely winter... More

I've been coming here occasionally for several years now. An ideal location to meet up with friends as there's easy connection to the A31. The food was, as always very good. The only real downside is the patio area outside the pub, very noisy due to the traffic on the main road. Still, it's always very enjoyable to come here.

This is a nice, comfortable pub, not big enough to let noise levels get to an annoying level. Food on our visit was excellent (British sirloin steak) - superbly and individually cooked with a good choice of wines. This wasn't our first visit and we've been impressed before - thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for your review, it's always nice to receive a positive review and I will let our butchers know you enjoyed the steak, they are particularly good from Smallbones butchers in Farnham. More

Had dinner with my wife and brother in law the other night, we all enjoyed our meals very much. There is a good range of food offered and experience suggests it will be cooked well. The Bull is a really traditional English pub with Oak Beams open fire, the works; added to this there was a hearty and friendly reception... More

A really warm welcome in a traditional pub. Roast beef and yorkshire puddings to die for, wouldn't hesitate in recommending and will definitely be returning.

Traditional pub food is served at the bull, plus some other lighter dishes. I went for the filet of sole wrapped with smolked salmon, side salad and potatoes. Very well presented, tasted devine. A great change from your usual fish and chips. I will definitely be going back for lunch!

We said goodbye to one of our retiring nurses on Friday evening and couldn't have chosen a better venue. The food was delicious and the atmosphere very cosy and friendly. The service could not have been better. Thank you will definitely return.
