As my local pub the Bull is always a popular choice, always busy, especially on weekends which is not a bad thing at all as the atmosphere is always really good. Waits at the bar are short as the staff are always on the ball....More

Went for drinks and a meal with friends at The Bull. Was surprised by how good the food was, all fresh and large portions. The pub also offers a good range of interesting beers. Would recommend the fajitas.

A group of us had the illchester burger, it tasted like rubber. Clearly frozen and not fresh. I've had better from the bins of a burger van. Beers and cheesy chips were good.
