“Rude staff and a long wait for poor quality food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We visited the Bulls Head 2 weeks ago. We walked up to the bar and were not able to order a drink due to the waiter not understanding the simple rule of who was at the bar first got served! After a few words I walked away in total disgust.
My wife had spoken to the restaurant manager and we were sat down at a table that was positioned in the main thoroughfare between the restaurant and the toilet, we should have just got up and left. The main course arrived and the meat skewer was dry and tasteless, the steak was overcooked and the chips cold. £35 later and a very poor experience. We wont be going back. Stick to the Red Lion it does what is says on the tin!

“Nearly there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Food is usually good for bar food and Sunday lunch, some other items not so good. They are sometimes a little short staffed. Worth a visit, lovely decor and newly fitted out.

“Visit on Sunday 11th May”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Arrived at 6pm Sunday 11 May! I'm afraid I was extremely disappointed with the food. Starter was pea and mint soup which looked like the duck egg blue dulux I have on my walls it was watery and curdled and tasted of nothing the main I had gnocchi swimming in too much tasteless oily sauce and dessert was a lemon cake with a few drops of lemon juice by it's side and a splat of creme fresh it was overcooked underneath and round the sides and was not presented attractively! I really am surprised as I know this place has had a major refurb. The price for both meals we had were extremely high for the quality of the meal.

“A Great Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Have eaten here many times recently (last time being Sunday Lunch) First of all, its in a wonderful countryside location (but not too far from civilisation) Lovely outside area for drinking and eating. Inside, beautifully decorated, with large bustling bar area on weekends, with varied choice of drinks. Very friendly and knowledgable bar staff. The restaurant area is large, but cosy with lots of nooks and crannies. The food is very good. We both had Roast Beef which was very well cooked and tasty, and in good portions. Have had steaks here on previous visits which were exceptionally good. Cant speak more highly of this recently renovated business. Its a credit to Darren and all of his team. Well done, and whilst it continues, will be happy to be a regular!!
