The service was very slow, the waitress appeared inexperienced in her role and the steak was under cooked, rare rather than medium. And the other meal was not what was ordered, but consumed instead of the long wait for food! We also asked for a second bottle of wine, the same as the first one, again had a long wait and it was a different one from what we ordered!
We found the Menu very limited, and nothing like the Menu on the website. Had decided on the Menu before arrival only to find it didn't exist. eg. Pan Fried Salmon, Sea Bass, Fish n Chips etc. This could be because it was a Sunday, or because there is a national shortage of food!! No Fish.! Having said that I had the Roast Beef, and there was plenty of beef, and very tender. The whole meal was very tasty, although it could have been hotter!
Fabulous as always. Always friendly faces and Dom and Charlie are as accommodating as ever. They even provided children’s ice creams when the kitchen had already closed! Thanks guys!
Bizarre! My salad was meagre and mean- was it a starter rather mains? The fish and chips for my mum was so huge it was falling off the plate. My husband's chicken dish was a huge piece of chicken as big as the plate w/o thought for veg, just a small grilled gem lettuce. My mother waited til pudding for her drink.
Noise levels - usual ambient back ground noise not helped by the bar man suddenly throwing bottles in the bottle bin loudly every so often. Just a shame it's our only local eatery in walking distance .
Great service and food, friendly and quick to point out service charge when I tried to tip
Great food and service. Would definitely recommend.
Food slightly disappointing, wine by glass very expensive, but outdoor setting good and service good
Lovely place and friendly staff. Fantastic crab tacos, monkfish and white bean deep. Quinoa salad less of a success but overall warmly recommended
As always The Bull was spot on for service, friendliness and excellent food. Another lovely evening.
Great food, super friendly service! Lovely atmosphere
Another great meal at The Bull. Love the specials - keep them coming. Great friendly service
Really lovely meal at the Bull whilst staying at Cotswold View campsite. We’d booked a table outside and turned up with plenty of layers but the manager had moved us inside as it was a little chilly.
The manager explained they were short staffed but we didn’t notice - great friendly service and lovely tasty food.
Dog friendly, children friendly - the portions were perfect for our pair (9yo/12yo)
Cool decor and a nice atmosphere.
Excellent pub with gorgeous food, great selection of drinks and very helpful, friendly staff. Will definately return if in Charlbury again. I would recommend booking in advance as very busy when we were there.
Felt that £19 for a roast that seemingly didn’t have any veg was very steep!!! I also didn’t like my main being plonked in front of me when I hadn’t even finished my starter, not the greatest experience or meal I’m afraid, far better places around to eat.
Food is excellent, all staff are fantastically welcoming and very attentive. Faultless as always.
Highly recommend this pub, great food and a cool (but not too cool) vibe.
Excellent meal. We went for a range of starters and each one was perfectly delicious.
My parents and I very much enjoyed our experience, the staff were friendly and chatty. We were seated in the garden which is very beautiful!
Very little choice did not match website.
We really enjoyed our time at The Bull. Greeted and seated in a very friendly, courteous manner. Nice table under the vines. Lovely drinks, particularly The Bull Bitter. Superb food, ample proportions. We all had starters and then the roast beef Sunday Lunch…delightful! All the staff were very pleasant, smiley and efficient. Highly recommended.
We had a table for 6 and had a selection of starters as a meze. All were exceptional. Crab and pork tacos, padron peppers, squid and chicken bites stand out. Services was efficient with warm humour. Lovely ambiance and decor. Will come again if in the area
Table booked for 3pm, but kitchen closes at 3pm so had to rush our food order. Told they were keeping kitchen opem has a few late arrivals. But we werent late. We were on time! Why take bookings if kitchen os closed?
Popped in for lunch, not an extensive menu but what we had was very good.
Great food, great services, great menu, great prices.
Very tasty food, in great surroundings, would recommend
The table for 2 @ 2.30pm The chairs very uncomfortable & wobbly. I asked to be move to a bench table but was told by the Manager they were booked however by the time we left there were still several bench’s empty.
Ran out of desert - lemon meringue pie so only had main course. The roast beef tasted good however the presentation was dreadful. My burger was excellent.
The service was competent and cheerful but they were a little slow to take our order. The food was good value.
Wonderful food, wonderful ambience, Gabby you are worth your weight in gold- thank you for your wonderful advice regarding the menu .
Food reasonable, limited menu.
Nice outside seating area and friendly staff.
Ate outside, very relaxed, small menu choice but tasty food!
Absolute gem of a find.
Brilliant pub. Excellent food, great wine list and cocktails. Top notch service - nice relaxed vibe. Beautiful decor
We enjoyed the fish and chips. They were perfect. The desserts were poor and probably bought in. The meringue wasn't really meringue and I wouldn't order it again. Service and dmbience are great.
We visited the Bull on a recommendation with our 12 wk old puppy! We weren’t disappointed, really great service, staff, food, attentive to children and pup! We’ll be back, thank you!
Really good evening. Food fab, service fab and although we had booked for an outdoor table, the rain was do bad, they actually managed to seat us inside.
Fantastic drinks and bar nibbles with family! Loved our visit. Looking forward to going back! Super friendly service.
A delicious lunch, with a perfectly cool table on a hot day. Really friendly service. Will go back often.
Great food and great location highly recommended place to eat and drink
Delicious lunch on Saturday, we sat outside under covered benches. The food was good quality - we really liked the menu. Lovely staff and great atmosphere. Only grumble was there were quite a few wasps buzzing around us and being allergic it became a bit of a distraction for me.
We love the Bull but on this visit we were kept waiting a very long time for our food to arrive with no explanation or apologies. They were prompt to ask if we wanted more drinks .
The food was very good as always even if the little gem and radish salad arrived without any radish!
The bill was wrong at the end but we did not raise the matter as it was not a lot of money involved and it seemed petty but we were disappointed after this visit.
