Went to the White Bull in Great Eccleston today bank holiday Monday, ordered 2 pints of John Smiths bitter, the beer was flat, asked the bar man to put a better head on the beer to which he replied--- how many pubs have you had----...I have had 55 years of drinking beer experience and I think I know a flat beer from a decent one, to which he said get out of my pub, its no wonder pubs are shutting down with a attitude like that, If you want a decent beer I would avoid the WHITE BULL AT GREAT ECCLESTON AT ALL COSTS, they dont deserve to run a pub. Better pint at the Black Bull and about 60p cheaper. 30/8/21. Keith SladeMore

Lovely first time visit to The White Bull. Very nice pub, different seating areas and tables. Quirky decoration. Garden is very pretty. Toilets are very well kept. Whole pub is spotless. Very good selection of drinks, reasonably priced and very good coffee. Some lovely dishes...on menu. We each had a different meal and everyone really enjoyed their meals. Well cooked and well presented. They also have entertainment nights. We will definitely be going again.More

Always thought this was a drinkers bar, How wrong. New managers with an emphasis on food and welcome. Strong on social distancing for anyone worried about it. Not just playing lip service to it for the sake of the big buck. Two stunning Sunday lunches...and a couple of drinks for £30.00. Couldn't fault it. Beef, 4 veg 2 potatoes dishes and lashings of roast meat gravy. Sorry ate so quick forgot to take any picture. Would highly recommend sepecially for the price.More

Excellent value for money for main course and good, value beer. Fish and chips perfectly nice and good system for social distancing compared to fish shop opposite! Eat out to help out scheme made mid week value for money excellent. Good position, especially on our...seats overlooking Great Eccleston Centre. No frills but does in my opinion what it does very well.More

Just left the having left 3 very disappointing Sunday lunches . Having ordered 3 Sunday dinners and drinks we decided to supersize to include all the meats . We waited quite a long time and didn’t mind because fresh cooked food takes a while .....doentbit ???? Well so apparently does poor quality frozen food what a disappointment . ... Described on the menu as coming with fresh veg , creamy mash potatoes and roast potatoes Ok , the potatoes were like bullets , deep fried NOT ROASTED. , there were no mash potatoes , I was told we were given extra “ roasts “ to compensate but that was just extra bullets The plate was huge and taken up in the main by 2 very large very overdone hard , what I assume were meant to be Yorkshire puddings but they were more like dry biscuits and not like any Yorkshire pie I have seen before, their main purpose was to fill the plate to justify the “supersize” description. The veg consisted of tiny frozen carrots , horrible and hard, a floret each of broccoli and cauliflower both frozen and watery , some cabbage leaves of an indeterminate type .The meats were slivers of stringy fatty meat with no proper slice of any meat . If this was the best they could do I would dread o see the normal Ok so on bringing this to the attention of the surly waitress , she slammed some money on the table and said chef said refund the meal . We left ..... the food and the pub ... It wasn’t expensive at around £10 each but not cheap either River Wyre are far superior and similar priceMore

Clearly microwaved food, rock solid and then chewy burger buns. Helpful staff but food was dreadful. Physically couldn’t chew through burger bun and had to be sent back. No offer of refund or complimentary drinks or deserts.

We had such lovely food. The place was immaculate. The landlady was welcoming and friendly. The food was perfect. Not over priced and well worth a visit. The new owners told us they have only been there 6 weeks. They also have a childrens menu...and do lovely desserts. Not only is it situated in a lovely village it is a lovely settingMore
