I had a very lovely time at the Bull Inn in Arborfield Cross but when it it came to pay the bill the requested £1.50 for a glass of Soda. This is not on! MANAGER - GET YOUR flipping act together!

We had fantastic meal with good service. What's more a request for baked beans was fulfilled, What more does s family need. Obviously the Bull caters for all tastes!

We were warmly welcomed by the staff and enjoyed a superb meal with our friends at this lovely restaurant. Plenty of choice, and the food was very well presented and at a reasonable price. Will certainly visit again when in the area.

Just after mid-day and the place was virtually full (on a Wednesday); friendly staff to welcome you, menus (lunch and main) that offered a good choice of 'pub food' including fish and vegetarian meals at very reasonable prices e.g. £10.50 for all...
