The staff are very friendly and we're very welcoming and served us very quickly. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed our meal. The pub has a great outdoor space with a play area for kids with slides and a adventure frame which keeps kids entertained! I strongly recommend this pub!!

We recently visited on a Friday evening and the restaurant was very busy (luckily we had booked a table). Parking can be difficult outside the pub but they do have an overflow car park that it is quite dark and muddy. The restaurant is a little cramped with not much room to manoeuvre between tables. We were shown to our... More

This visit was with a work colleague. After a busy day. Good service, great atmosphere and excellent food as usual. Generous portion sizes but smaller choices available

That's what I call the type of restaurant limits it's offering to food they can fry or cook in a microwave when they have limited culinary skills in house and this place is a shining example of that. Took my family for lunch on Saturday, shown to the table by a surly member of staff didn't feel in the least... More

Visited the Bull & Butcher for the first time this lunchtime. Arrived just before 1pm. Only one other couple in there. Greeted by a friendly waitress, given menus and our drinks order taken and swiftly delivered. A lovely menu with plenty of choice. Nice to have a variation of potatoes and not just "chips with everything". I ordered the Cajun... More

The place does have character and the staff were pleasant, however the breakfast was very average. I couldn't see what was on the plate because of the beans and tinned tomatoes piled on. It could have been presented better. The coffee was very good though.

Saturday night meal out with friends. Food was very good, well cooked, good portion size and a good price. Service a little slow with drinks and not asked if we wanted desserts. Quality of food and home cooked feel would bring us back.

We visited this establishment with friends from out of town and despite many previous visit we were acutely embarrassed by the total lack of customer service. Fortunately the meals themselves were excellent but the service level by the staff was woefull.

Poor service but nice food, staff appear very flustered and slow to respond more concerned with telling guests that the restaurant is fully booked but most seats are empty and I've been here an hour.
