“A Retail Establishment from Olden Times”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Sadly most of the retail shops were closed (Sunday 1400 ish) when we were there BUT this is a set of small shops selling fresh fish, butchery, farm produce and various upmarket type items.
From previous experience you get beef (not horse) when you shop and the produce is all of the highest quality albeit you may pay a little more.
The 'twee' shops have excellent items for birthday presents and the like.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We live a short drive from Battlers Green and on the whole i absolutely love it! The Bull Pen though always manages to disappoint...not the food but the abysmal service. The female manager is so out of her depth its laughable. BUT if you can see past the service (or lack of) you will certainly enjoy the coffee, food and cakes. The shops are great for a wonder around especially the farm-shop and hippy crystal shop. Great fishmongers and butcher. But the best shop is the hidden vintage shop at the back that not many people know is there. Its full of absolute gems.....i buy all my gifts from there...i cant recommend a visit enough! Also, steer clear of the Bull Pen if you have small children. They are not made to feel welcome at all. unless the weather is warm and you can sit outside!!

“Don't waste your petrol..”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

As we were having lunch nearby we thought we would spend a few hours at this attraction.
However less than twenty minutes after pulling in the car park we were on our way out. As a foodie
I can normally find lots in a deli to buy... But not here! The other shops lacked interesting items and
Staff that looked bored to death, and the prices wow!. A friendly butchers shop with some nice items but very over priced. The site needs different people,different shops and different items to be
Any good and worth a visit, the bar,eatery looked ok.

“Fresh fish”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Visited many times and tend to agree that the service in the bul pen is s slow but a pleasant experience sitting outside in the summer. I recommend the fishmongers as the fish always tastes fantastic

“Good Breakfast and Useful for Lunch”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Apart from having pretensions of self importance this place is OK. Usually full and busy with noisy "ladies who lunch" the service is usually OK and the food when simple is good. It's evening offering looks pretensious and very expensive .
