We popped in the Bulls Head and I've never been at lunch before, they do a 2 main course for £10 offer and I had lasagne and my mum had fish and chips. Good size portions for the price, friendly staff and quick service.

On the 2 for £10 you can have a starter for £3 and a dessert for £3. We sampled the lemon cheese cake, syrup sponge & custard, waffle and brownie - again all delicious. All... More
