For the prices you are paying you would expect the staff to actually smile or at least look interested, instead of feeling as if you are inconveniencing them, only one waitress actually smiled and shown any interest. Hard to judge initially bar prices very expensive, but this does balance against the competitive food prices. Starter arrived the only flavour was that of the sauce, the actual food was tasteless. Mains very much the same, the quality of the actual food supplied to this pub is very low and it is dressed with sauces to mask how bland the food actually is.
We did hang around a little to see the manager and give our feedback but he never shown his face again, we had spoken to him during our dining experience as one of the meals was returned due to being inedible. Typical chain just want your money.

Sixteen of us arrived here this evening, ordering our meals as four separate payments. The staff ensured that EVERY meal arrived at the same time. They also came to the table first and checked all the orders.
All the meals were cooked to perfection and good value too!
Top marks to all the staff at Llanwern Bull!

We stumbled upon the Llanwern Bull this evening with a stroppy teen in tow,and murderous thoughts in mind, then Nick, Josh, & Louis were serving, and discussions of my murderous thoughts for the stroppy teen we’re dispelled, by their generous humour and to top it all the food was absolutely bang on, even the stroppy teen and a smile by the end of the meal, and from not being hungry, she polished off her bespoke chicken burger, chips and a two scoop ice cream cone. I would highly recommend a visit, and be warned my three amigos Nick, Josh, and Louis, we will be back, especially as stroppy teen rather liked the young chap with the floppy hair who served the ice cream. Oh and before I forget I particularly liked the fact that with no prompting, Nick, and cute floppy haired chap assisted me carrying the three drinks to our table outside, and the lovely Jess clearing the tables thank you all for a FAB night

Was at the pub yesterday and couldn’t find where the condiments where and no waiting staff were around, noticing I was unsettled, Jamie, asked if he could help with something and then went and got the brown sauce and explained there was no mustard, and this was all while he wasn’t on shift and was actually there at the bull for a night out. The great customer service continues on from Shauna and Emma at bar, the food was lovely and a reasonable price. A very moody waitress seemed to want to leave every time I saw her though, made it all the more humorous . Will definitely be visiting again
