“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Went on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews for Sunday lunch. The pub has a dated feel to it. No modernity. The welcome was, however, excellent, faultless. Ongoing service was refreshingly informative and natural.
The lunch itself was fairly standard. We had a selection between us of pork, beef and gammon. The latter was very nice. The roasties were overcooked. Portions were generous.
On the basis of the food alone I would rate average to good. The service good to excellent. The facilities dated. So, compared to some of the previous reviews we were 'disappointed'. But compared to the cost I would rate it nearer a 4.

We read trip advisor and thought we would pay a visit and am so glad we did. We met Trevor and Jane! Such lovely people, we had some lovely drinks and Trevor lit the log fire, we have not tried the food yet but we will soon. WELL DONE for being such a friendly pub. DEBBIE and ANDREW.

“Lovely local pub, good beer, great food”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Went here with my father-in-law for Sunday lunch. Lovely service, a good selection of freshly prepared roasts and when the meals arrived we could see that there were proper roasties, delicious veg (cauliflower cheese, leeks and carrots) as well as loads of gravy. Puds were good too (though the fruit salad was a little on the cold side)

“Wonderful relaxed afternoon at Bull & Butcher”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Horrible, cold winters day with snow swirling around so it was great to spend the afternoon here. The log fire was blazing away and the food was excellent. Great hospitality too from the owners making us feel very welcome. We stayed put rather than going on for our walk at Stowe - far too pleasant here :)
