“Bulls Head revisited”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

First visit since it changed back to a gastro pub, overall it has improved greatly since my last visit. The atmosphere was just right, the choice of food quite extensive and reasonably priced,the quality was good but not top notch. I had scallops with peas and crispy Parma ham, the ham wasn't crispy, followed by fish and chips which were good but not the best I have had

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Starter . Shared the meat platter which was excellent. Mains had fish both pleased with our choices. Pudding waffles . Cherry bakewell. Was stuffed Did not need a pudding. The starter on its own is not small. I would ask to sit downstairs next time . Lacked atmosphere upstairs when two of you. Enjoyable evening. Would recommend here to friends.

“Never Disappoints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

The table had been booked for early Saturday evening and the bar area was already busy when we arrived. The table was located in the Garden Room which is a short way from the bar and all of the tables here were reserved, so it was a little quieter than the main bar area.

The staff at the Bulls Head are always really friendly, take a pride in what they do and are an asset.

The food was excellent, the spiced baked cod was fantastic and there is a great choice of wines.

I definately will be revisiting teh Bulls Head in the near future!

“High quality food in an informal setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

It was booked up for Saturday night but they keep some tables free for walk-ins, so we got in fine.Service was friendly and quick, food was delicious. Smoked duck breast and wensleydale fritter starters. Amazing pork belly and lamb shoulder mains. My only question, the duck starter came with some cous cous that was very hard - never had it like that, could not decide if it was meant to be that way? But it did not detract from the meal. Great variety on the menu, and good value for the quality of cooking, we will be back.
