Party of 3 arrived at 6.45pm. Informed wait would be 35 to 40 minutes. After 40 mins asked again said 10 minutes. Another 30 minutes asked again. Seated at 8.25pm. Ordered immediately as we were very hungry. Drinks order not brought to table or cutlery. At 9pm asked on progress of food. Food brought out soon after. Waited for cutlery and drinks. One food order never came. Informed wait staff it was taken off the bill.

When paying we were asked how it was.

Informed this can happen on a bank holiday. Offered drink but we were leaving. I understand it can be busy on bank holidays but staff could have kept us informed. No communication and too late to go elsewhere.

Overall food eaten but spolied as we had waited so long it was difficult to enjoy. Also other customers around us had messed up orders. Not a good atmosphere or environment to enjoy food.

This is the place the locals go for group and family gatherings, casual dinners at night, where the kids are welcome and you can have a couple of glasses of wine. Solid pepper steak, excellent fish and chips. Worth a visit, even if there was a 20 minute wait.

Recently moved to the area,and I can honestly say this is one place I would not recommend to anyone who is not known here,on more than one occasion had to wait more than 5-10mins to get served,on speaking to manager???she gave the most patronising of apologies. I know I'm a dub,but my money is as good as the next man.... Big thumbs down,shame because the building itself is really nice......

There are no dislikes about De Bull - everyone is friendly + curtious and the food is always delicious.
