Visited the bull on our way back from the airport and had dinner. Words cannot express how we felt about this experience, you have to visit the Bull Inn. This really is fine fantastic dining, just book it. !

Had dinner here last night and I must say that both the food quality and service were excellent. We went early so it was not that busy but I can see why it can get. Overall good food and service. Thanks

The food here was lovely, they do a traditional menu very well. Visited as a family of 8 and the hosts were very accomodating. The food portions are huge, plenty of parking.

Lovely decor, good (if slightly flamboyant) service and great food. I had a lovely burger and the noodles looked amazing. The menu is extensive. Only slightly marred by the fact that we arrived 12:00 on the dot and we could hear the barman swearing. I can only assume he didn't realise there were guests in.

With very short notice the chef produced a lovely vegan meal for me and checked up what I could and couldn't eat. I was very impressed.

I had a very lovely time at the Bull Inn in Arborfield Cross but when it it came to pay the bill the requested £1.50 for a glass of Soda. This is not on! MANAGER - GET YOUR flipping act together!

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Thought lunch time menu gave good choice and good value for money. Best recommendation I can give is that we will definitely go back.
