We have been to the Bulls Head a couple of times and have always had a delicious meal and this visit was just as good. The staff are very friendly, the atmosphere and decoration is welcoming, bright and relaxing. Will definitely be back soon.

Christmas meal with the family never disappoints. Have been coming back to the Bulls Head for family meal for 10 years or so and not once have we had a bad meal or cause for complaint. Staff are very welcoming and friendly and took time to talk and play with 3 year old niece who wanted more crackers! Good home... More

Came here for lunch on Boxing Day after a walk. Hadn't booked, but table found for us. Even though busy, food arrived promptly. Fishcakes for starters, excellent. Butternut Squash Risotto was, as usual, very good. The chef knows what he is doing here. Have had pea and ham risotto before which I can highly recommend as it's not too salty.

Wednesday 21st December. 8 adults who all had fantastic meals of the normal menu. The portions are very generous & home cooked. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy quality home cooked meals.

Waited ages to order and then ages to get served. The room is cramped and the staff obviously think that we as customers are doing them a favour. Needs some TLC. Food is nothing special.

Sunday Lunch review,the waiting on staff very friendly and you do get seated and served very quickly. The food very watery vegetables, over cooked meat very poor value for the money.Suggest if people think this fare is excellent then go to the Mill Wheel in the village as mentioned by a previous poster it is far superior to this place....

After searching through Trip Advisor looking for a last minute local Sunday Lunch I came across this place. The reviews were generally good so thought I would give it a try and made a booking. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner who was lovely and friendly and looked after us throughout our meal. The meals were delivered... More
