  • I booked a table for my engagement
    MissHirons
    Dined on 25/10/2013
    I booked a table for my engagement meal. The food was amazing however the service was shocking. When I say service the waitresses were lovely but in a full restaurant, two waitresses was not sufficient. Our table was left for 35mins before ordering our meal. We sat down at 7:45 and did not finish our food until gone 10pm...most only had starter & main. Food was great though and saved my evening. I think if the food was poor we would have left.

    A colleague and I dined here last week and both of us had steak - one rump and one fillet. Both were the best steaks we had eaten in a long time! So tasty and came with a glass of wine. The place is slightly in the middle of nowhere but worth the drive to get there. Will be back soon!

  • Visit 3 times recently
    Coleshillian
    Dined on 5/10/2013
    We discovered the bull recently after someone we know recommended the owner as being a trustworthy source, the first time I went was a family meal, about 10 of us and we all equally thought the food was to much higher standards than most restaurants, let along a country pub, the second time again family but a different set, much fussier, still all really enjoyed their food. The third was me and my partner who is vegetarian, if I had one suggestion it would be more than one vegetarian main on the menu but she really enjoyed it (and she is hard to please) so thumbs up all round, that night was also someone's hen night so service look a little longer but the food was still bang on. My partner also commented on the cocktails being made properly

  • Pleasantly Surprised
    MikeC
    Dined on 8/8/2013
    We were very pleasantly surprised when we entered this restaurant. The style is of a 'gasto-pub'/bistro, and the decor is lovely. Service was excellent, and the waitress was very welcoming and attentive. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, but eventually my friend and I decided to share a plate of scallops for a starter, which was absolutely scrumptious, and while she had the rump steak I had the duck for main meals. Both were cooked to perfection; the duck succulent and tender and the steak just melted in your mouth. We are already thinking of excuses to come here again

    Excellent meal, lovely refurb of the bull. Service good to the point that the three waitresses took it in turns to constantly ask I we were ready to order 5 minutes after we sat down! Its a night out, time for relaxation. No pressure. Saying that they were all very pleasant and helpful.

    Comfortable atmosphere and nice food. Only draw back was the 2 mains for the price of 1 voucher downloaded that day was not accepted. Apparently the restaurant has requested the removal of the voucher but they need to ensure this is made clear on their own website or in the restaurant prior to people ordering their meals, as nowhere on the voucher does it state that it should be mentioned when booking or ordering. Otherwise a pleasant evening.

    Dined on 13/2/2013
    We have been many times and ALWAYS enjoyed the food. On this occaision it was excellent as usual but there were some slight disappointments. We were sat in the area by the wine rack and although the log fire was lit, it was still too cold (although it was a cold night outside). We are fussy about lighting and it was too bright where we were. We love a nice cosy, atmospheric and intimate setting and this position didn't do it for us. We prefer the larger room which is more dimly lit. We shall certainly visit again and have recommended it many times but we WILL ask for the other room next time we book.

    The service was great - friendly, attentive and efficient. The restaurant was very quiet, which was a good thing - nicely chilled and relaxing. The food was excellent - my roast beef Sunday lunch was a real treat - the beef was particularly succulent and cooked "just so".. - and the deal was very good. All a treat for me making a change from spending Sunday slaving over the stove!!

    Beanie
    Dined on 11/1/2013
    We were struck by the clean lines and Bistro feel of the place. The barman was extremely helpful and attentive. It was an extremely relaxed atmosphere and not at all pretentious. The food was fabulous. My partner had the mussels as a starter which were tasty and I had the ham hock tagine which was nice but there was a lot of it for me. The main was gorgeous, beautifully presented and delicious. I really enjoyed my evening and would definitely recommend it, however, I think the service, although friendly needs to be tightened up a little. The waitresses were extremely friendly and happy to serve but the Bull would benefit from a little more attention to detail where the service is concerned. A great experience all round.

    On arrival we had a warm welcome and was shown to our table quickly, our waitress was very nice and good with our seven year old son. The service during our meal was fine and the food was nice, we had the roast beef and the meat was very good. The atmosphere was good and I liked the decor too. When we was given our bill it blew off the table, I was disappointed when another waitress saw this but just walked over this bill on the floor without picking it up (she wasn't carrying anything to stop her doing this) the same waitress had walked over a knife which had been dropped, maybe it wasn't her table! It wont put me off going back I think you should always give places a second chance as it may have just been a bad day at the office :)

    Arrived for steak night but as no one was having wine decided to order off the main menu. We all still had steak and it was cooked to perfection. The service was poor, from taking order to food arriving on table took 3/4 hour. We all had a really good meal and the atmosphere was lively and friendly. Would go again and recommend it to friends. Hopefully the delay in service was a one off!

    Dined on 20/10/2012
    The restaurant is cosy and kind of Bistro like. The menu was adequate and offered varied options. We had shared bread and oils to start, which was good....but not great. My daughter is vegetatian, she was disappointed with only one choice....which she enjoyed and was very good. Myfelf, my husband and my son had the steak main, which was very good, we all agreed. With ice cream to final. A very good meal, lovely food and presentation......the service let them sown. It was busy but not very attentive to our needs.

    Have been to the Bull many times over the years under different ownership. As friends birthday treat thought I would book as partner & I had excellent Sunday lunch a few weeks previously. The four of us had table at 8pm which is a busy time but the service was excellent. The girls that served us could not have been more helpful. Two of us had the rump steak on recommendation from the waitress which was excellent. The others had, lamb cutlets & fish & chip. All meals were very good but the rump steak was the best I have had. Plenty of food therefore I considered good value for money. We will be going back again.

  • Great Steak- shame about the wine

    Dined on 19/9/2012
    We chose the Wednesday night Steak night option of buy two steaks get a bottle of either house red or white. The steaks were brilliant, perfectly cooked, juicy, succulent and tender. Unfortunately both the house red and white were both undrinkable. We've been to the Bull many times and will continue to do so. We'll just stay away from the house wine.

    This was a family meal with visiting relatives, we all agreed the meal was outstanding and the service extremely good! The atmosphere was pleasant, we were not rushed with our meal, everything was just right and we would definetely recommend it to others. The only issue was that out or three toilets in the ladies, only one was working, which was a bit inconvenient. However, when we asked about it the staff did apologise for this - just hope they get them working fairly soon!!

    A friendly welcome. The menu offered a good variety of food. After choosing Sea Bass fillet i was very dissapointed to be presented with one small fillet, although very tasty the meal was very small for the price charged. My husband chose the Rib Eye, he did not think it was particulally good quality. Although a pleasant experience, we will not return.

    Attended for Sunday lunch. Sirloin of beef slices were a little tough, should have been melt in the mouth. Portion size could have been bigger. Swede in veg bowl should be ditched - totally tasteless. Staff were pleasant, nice ambience. Only downside was that the toilet in the ladies/baby change was very dirty, The Bull, you need to change your cleaners. Came for an evening meal in May and meal was really good, so brought along friends with us this time. Just a bit disappointed with the food this time.
