Old pub/restaurant in this small village near Marlow.

David Burbage writes on 2 March 2000:

The Bull Inn dates back many centuries, and is a combination of pub and French restaurant. The food in the restaurant is prepared by the same kitchen as food in the bar, and it is excellent - we have never had a bad dish. The food selection in the restaurant is extensive, and the wine list also. It costs around 25/head for a 3 course meal, plus wine, but is well worth it. The pub has a number of ales and I think it is a free house. Often busy and worth booking ahead. The staff are mainly Continental and dress for the part - there is no dress code but you'll see many suits in here. As it is close to Bisham Abbey, you might even see some England football players!

Visited 5 or 6 times in the last 18 months. This delightful restaurant has an extensive menu, superbly cooked well presented food, good ambiance, efficient courteous service and nicely laid tables with spotless linen. It is only marred by some customers not being informed of any "specials" when the menu is presented.

The Bull (or the Papal Bull) as it was once known has been a coaching in for some 700 years and has some fascinating artifacts within. The food is superb and the wine list has something for everyone. The only thing that is better than the food and the wine is the impeccable, unintrusive and knowledgeable service from a very efficient staff. I would truly recommend this venue.

I visited The Bull on 26/06/04. This was the third time I've been, and as ever, I was very pleased with the food and the service.

I find the waiting style to be excellent. Fast, efficient and achieving the perfect balance between friendly and not-too-familiar.

The menu is large and fairly varied, though really all within French and English cuisine. There are have always been some wonderful specials available, with a good selection of fresh fish and seafood. When asparagus is available as a special, it is always wonderful. I'm sure it must be locally sourced.

The standard of presentation is always high, and preperation excellent. If you ask for a steak medium rare, then it will come medium rare. Something seems to be gettng quite rare itself, lately!

Desert is always nice, fresh, and varied. Again, the berries are so good, I'd bet they didn't come from a local cash and carry!

In all, it's a nice place, with excellent service and very good food. That's what I like to find in a restaurant, and that's why I like to go back.

Liz Allsopp writes in again about this restaurant on 7 September 2004:

Would like to amend my review of 2002. We have visited the Bull many times in the last 6 months and always had an excellent meal there. Specials of the day are brought out and shown to perspective diners, menu is extensive, food is superb, waiters attentive and surroundings are sumptious. My favourite resturant.
