“Great food and fantastic value”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Visited with my wife on the way back up the M4. The Bull is only a short ride from the junction. They have a new young chef and the food was fantastic. We ate off the evening menu and this is a mixture of classic English Pub food with a modern twist. We had Whitebait and Scallops to start with and these were very well presented and cooked, followed by fish and chips and belly of pork with black pudding. The portions were very generous, especially as the mains were only £10.00 each. Will make an effort to stop next time we are going down the M4.
