Good veggie selections and lovely friendly staff and cosy atmosphere
Busy evening but we didn't have to wait at all, service was fantastic and food was wonderful.
Great pub with a lovely atmosphere, food and friendly service
The Bull Inn was fantastic. Food was of very high quality and the menu was extremely well thought out and put together. The staff were very friendly and had excellent knowledge of the wine-list which helped compliment the food. Would 100% go there again when I'm in the Cotswolds.
Excellent service from our waitress despite the disappointing intervention by the management. We clearly indicated at the time of booking that one of our guests was Vegan. The choice was fine and we checked that the gravy served with a cauliflower steak (offered alongside the traditional roasts) was vegan. When the meal arrived the steak was served with a tomato sauce. We asked again for a vegan gravy but were told that’s what it was served with. The manager or owner (he never introduced himself) came over and was quite firm that he was right and we were wrong! Very rude. Although all of us have made perfectly acceptable vegan gravy. How hard can it be? So the venue clearly has ambition to be a top place to eat and as yet hasn’t quite reached other places we have eaten. The waitress kindly offered us a free bottle of wine and took the price of the vegan meal from the bill. Ultimately not worth the price we paid based on the quality of food rather than that of the service.
I can’t think of a better place on a summer evening to have dinner. Suggested wine was delicious, as was the crispy calamari. The vegetarian platter hit the spot and is great to share. Personally I found the ratio of ice cream to chocolate brown too low. The tiniest quinelle and one raspberry cut up and spread around the plate appeared misery and didn’t balance the richness of the brownie. This did not affect me eating it all and enjoying it, but for me less brownie, more ice cream and a couple of whole raspberries would have given it 10/10.
On recommendation via online forums for the Sunday roast, we decided to try whilst visiting the Cotswolds. Utterly disappointed, veg was completely bland and over cooked (soggy cauliflower and broccoli), the roast potatoes were huge and not cooked enough, beef and lamb were both lovely although very small amounts, yorkie was average. Nothing overly special and at £17 a portion, it was way overpriced. Wouldn’t return on that basis. Side note, we are dog lovers and have a dog, however, do not expect to have them at the dining table when we are eating and badly behaved owners allowing their pets to roam around with no consideration was a huge put off. Perhaps consider keeping them in the bar area and garden.
The food was delicious. I had the lamb rump which was cooked beautifully and my wife had the halloumi burger which was equally good. The service wasn’t as good as the food, in that we had to ask a couple of times for most things and we weren’t asked if we wanted drinks etc. All in all a decent enough visit, and I’d go back on another night to see if it was just an ‘off’ night (maybe there was some staff missing maybe?)
Service was quick, please to surroundings. The main course was good, roast beef, good veg, though the Yorkshire pudding was not the best, I would have liked a jug of gravy with it. The desert, "Chef's banoffee" was tiny, a piece of banana about one inch long, should have been caramlis but was not for £7.50 was insulting, for that price I expect to be stuffed or amazed, I'd have been disappointed even if it was £2.
