A family Sunday lunch and despite the power cut lingering from the day before, The Bull was well prepared food-wise and had cobbled together an eclectic mix of candles to provide sufficient light! Excellent Beef and Lamb served without fuss or any noticeable delay. Good range of puddings for desert. The Wadworth Ales were also in perfect condition.

My wife and I visited The Bull twice before in the summer, but only for lunchtime sandwiches and drinks. Nevertheless, we were sufficiently impressed with the quality of food and the friendliness of the staff to suggest this as a venue for Sunday lunch when meeting up with an old friend. We were not disappointed. In fact I'd go as... More

We did not know what to do for Sunday lunch but wanted to go out, we looked at pubs close by and stumbled upon the Bull at Hinton. We rang and asked if they had any tables available, we were happy they said yes and made our way over. Inside was really cozy and very welcoming. The specials were on... More

Decided to visit this restaurant as we were looking for somewhere close to the M4 and the TripAdvisor reviews were good. Had such a great experience here, lovely food - the roast lamb was amazing! Friendly staff and cosy table near the fire. Can't wait to visit here again.

We ate here with some friends, having visited several times before. We found that the portions were small, the venison came with a tiny bit of celeriac mash and some kale and red cabbage which was all ok, but really would have benefited from a potato dish. The sweets and cheese board were good. On this occasion we did not... More

Well what can I say, We chose The Bull because it was recommended. On arrival we we're shown to our table by a lovely waitress. We ordered what starters and mains we wanted and it come out looking very appetising. The BBQ Rib Special was also very tasty and good value.

Description
Where are we? Welcome to The Bull Inn in the peaceful village of Hinton. which lies only 20 minutes from the centres of both Bath and Bristol and less than 5 minutes away from Junction 18 of the M4. About The Bull This ancient stone built building dates back to the 17th century. In its time it has been an Inn, a farm and a dairy. Like all buildings of this age it also has it's fair share of ghosts. Be always on the lookout for the lady in grey! About the food We Love to serve Traditional British Pub food and we take great pride in making the dishes the best they can be and still great value for money! We also have a Specials board which changes weekly and can be a real treat! We believe that to achieve great food you only need to look on your doorstep. So with that in mind we have chosen where possible to source our ingredients from local suppliers who share the same passion for quality as we do. Where possible we use our home grown seasonal fruit, herbs and vegetables from our own allotment to the rear of the pub. Our friendly and cheeky gardener Rockie does an incredible job for us and keeps everything in order - if you have a spare minute pop round to have a look or a chat, if only to give him a chance for a breather. Our butchers are Barlett and Sons of Bath and Bristol Meat Trader, they both deal in locally sourced, succulent, farm assured meats ensuring their products are of the best quality. All of their meat is prepared using traditional butcher methods and they mature their beef for over 21 days to ensure we get the most tender and succulent steak possible. As well as providing lamb, pork and bacon they also manufacture their own sausages on the premises providing us with the best quality sausages in the area. Our Fishmonger Wing of St. Mawes(Cornwall) is a small family run company with over 30years experience. We source all our fish from mussels, cod, scallops, plaice, sole, prawns and lobsters from Wing daily. They care passionately about sustainable sourcing and deliver to us every night after the fish is caught in the morning. Our eggs are from our 18 lovely Hens which can be found to the rear of the pub, they are lovely characters and lay some exceptional eggs for our Ham, Egg and Chips! When we can't source produce from our garden we use A-DAVID of Bristol which has over 50 years experience. They care as passionately as us about the provenance and locality of produce and over the years has amassed a large number of local growers who are incredibly passionate and dedicated to what they do. We use Marshfield Farm ice cream which is truly amazing luxury ice cream and sorbet. They are just 5minutes up the road so you can't get more local than that. We love our little customers just as much as our fully grown ones! So with that in mind we have created a children's menu that is full of tasty dishes just like the main menu. If your child would like something that's not on the menu please just ask and we will do our very best to do it for you! How lucky we are to have such great local suppliers and producers to share with you. We hope you will think our efforts to source the best produce is worthwhile. About the beer As a Wadworth pub we serve all the usual brews, including 6X, Henry's and we always have a guest on which changes weekly. We also stock draught Heineken, Amstel, Thatchers Gold, Stowford Press and Corvus Stout. About the wine We have a substantial selection of wines by the glass. If you are uncertain of your choice please ask the bar staff for a sample taste. We also have a quality range of classical wines which are available by the bottle. Allergies Some foods & ingredients can cause an allergic reaction. If you suffer from a food allergy, please inform a member of staff.
