    Great pub and all the dishes were fabulous. However the burgers were not. They were dry and heavy. The staff were very accommodating and we gave feedback about the poor quality of the burgers.

    Ordered a plate to share£39, arrived very small and very salty. (I told the manager it was salty as well) charged us extra items (which we did not ordered), unfortunately we looked through the receipt And funny enough, we head back home then found out they charged us £40 instead of £39. I guess they are not ready to run a restaurant

    Very disappointed with our Sunday Lunch. The service was shocking, the staff were very friendly but had absolutely no idea what was going on. Incredibly slow and disjointed and all half asleep. The food was very poor, re cooked dry roast potatoes and tasteless vegetables and gravy. It was very hot inside but they said we could not eat on the terrace as they did not serve food outside. Given it was a beautiful day it didn’t make sense. All in all it was a very expensive and unpleasant experience.

    The BullResponded on 26 June 2022Dear Jan R, I hope you are doing well. Apologies for your poor experience with The Bull. At the time we were going through loads of things with just a few people but we are in a better place right now. Hospitality is still a tough market when it comes to hiring people, unfortunately. I hope you would like to give us another try and if so.. please get in touch on info@thebullhighgate.c0m Thank you. Kind regards, Alex Iuga General Manager

    We like this pub but it seemed to suffer from a few teething issues following the refurbishment. Service was charming but slow. The food was good but slow to arrive. The biggest problem was with the IT - it took ages to pay as there was an issue with the card reader and cash is not accepted. I am confident that these issues will be resolved and we will return!

    We went there for Sunday lunch - (very) large portions for the roast. Generally pretty good but they missed the feta in the feta salad! They recovered the salsa and started again and the feta was apparently excellent so a slight let down but otherwise ok

    Menu looked good, but the actual food was disappointing and/or rather tasteless. We thought the reopened kitchen would be producing top tastes, but average

    This is a great gastropub. Excellent choice of beers and a menu full of the classics. They were having some technical problems when we arrived, but the staff kept us well informed and it didn't impact on the day at ll

    Ah The Bull, having been through many owners no one seems to be able to quite make it work. Whilst the layout is fine (although first floor a bit too airy and lacking in any atmosphere ), the menu is a bit confused and lacking good descriptions. The food was actually pretty , the Camembert a delight, but service was quite poor considering the number of staff v customers. Maybe, it was teething problems as the venue deserves to work, but it needs a little more hard work from its owners as location wise its further down the hill from the village so not one to benefit from passing traffic , therefore needs to a be a destination - good food and good service required to make it work

    First time in the pub under new ownership and I was a bit disappointed: Fish and chip batter was rather pale and not particularly crunchy or fulsome. Fish was ok but not as good as the (chunkier cod) at my fish and chip shop which was disappointing. Portion sizes a bit small as well. My companion’s burger looked over cooked but he liked it. Starter of whitebait and squid was very badly and inconsistently battered - either too much or not enough. Limited beer selection - only one of the great gorgeous beers whereas there used to be several. On the positive side thee server was very attentive and helpful as were bar staff. Hopefully this is just teething issues post takeover rather how things will be going forward as the food (and drink) was always fantastic in the past. Ps - Men’s toilet had major leak and shame the refurbishments didn’t extend to making these larger as they are incredibly small. Good to see existing furniture and decoration largely the same.

    Enjoyed the starter of bread and olives. Disappointed with the roast and fish and chips. Lovely staff though. We understand that it was your first weekend back so would still recommend and come back.

    Service and food were very good. However, there was a huge difference in the size of main course portions! Roasts were enormous and the cod was a tiny portion for the price!

    The food was ok but very slow service. Some of our food was cold. They looked under staffed. Under new management so could take time. Preferred the old menu.
