After a lovely visit to the Roman Baths, this pub seemed ideal for lunch as it was next door. The welcome was frosty from the bar person who seemed to want to put us off eating there by saying they only had burgers. There were...More

Fair pub grub and a nice place for a bar snack. There is a good menu choice and the staff are very friendly. The home cooked chips were lovely.

After seeing the amphitheatre, museum, and baths, we were ready for lunch and decided to try the Olde Bull Inn. It was fairly quiet inside and we found a table easily enough. We ordered fish and chips and although we had to wait a fair...More

This very old pub could be fantastic if it were managed properly. We were informed they had no real ale as they was a change of management! The food was awful. I had a cheese and ham toastie which didn't taste right which I put...More
