  • "Relaxed & friendly atmosphere. Restaurant one side of the venue & traditional pub the other side. On our group booking everyone was impressed with their food choices. We did 3 courses. Great atmosphere of lively chatter & Saturday nights live music if you want to move to the bar. Yet to go & try the lunch menu as word has it - best fish finger sandwiches on the menu :)"

  • "A lovely pub, very clean and tidy. Helpful and friendly staff. Excellent food, nice decor and a relaxing environment. Only issue was I wanted to order the pie but when I ordered it, I was told they didnt have it on that particular day. We attended on a Monday lunchtime at 1300. Our waitress apologised and said we should have been notified of this when we was shown to our table. We proceeded to order the Club sandwich instead and it didnt disapoint."

  • "The overall experience was good from the time we arrived to the time we left. We were able to alter our meals slightly to meet our needs. The waitresses were friendly and polite. The only downside for me was that most of the meals come without veg so a side order is required for most meals. Not a very large portion for the price and for a group of four added a fair bit to the bill. I have been to many similar places and usually the veg comes as part of the meal. If the owners sort this out I would visit more often."

  • "We ate at The Bull, Brentwood on two consecutive weekends to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We took two large parties on both occasions and had an absolutely brilliant time. The food was exceptional, well cooked and delivered to the table all together. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful, attentive and professional."

  • "I like the Bull and have eaten there several times and always enjoyed it. This time however all 4 of our different main course meats were over cooked. Before we had even left my stomach was churning and I was ill throught the wee hours and the next day due to something I ate. Shame as it's usually so good. It's because it's usually good that I would give it the benefit of the doubt and both recommend it and go back. Next time though will be its last chance!"

  • "Booked a table a few weeks in advance, restaurant called me to confirm the booking a few days before we went there. Food was excellent, would recommend to anyone who enjoys good food, in pleasant surroundings for a special meal or just meeting up with friends. service was great - not too much fussing around us, but our waitress was there when we wanted more drinks or desserts. Our meals were served to us quite quickly after ordering & no long wait between courses. Will definitely be going back to The Bull soon."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "A warm welcome with very friendly staff and good service. The roast was okay but served only barely warm but well cooked. The roast potatoes and Yorkshire where overdone. My wife had the fish pie was very dry and suggest it was not freshly presented. But the atmosphere and friendly service means we would go there again but would not go with anyone else. But knowing what to expect 6/10 overall. You should note the restaurant closes at around 8:30pm but the bar remains open and you can stay for as long as you wish at your table."

  • "My Husband and I went to The Bull for my birthday in November, it was lovely. Our second visit last Saturday night did not dissapoint. We went with four friends. The food was fantastic, we had scallops, fish & chips, steak pie and roast pork, it was amazing! We were so full we coudln't fit a dessert! Our waitress Frankie was superb, 100% customer focused and really helpful. If you want amazing food with fantastic customer service do not hesitate to visit The Bull."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "My party arrived at 8 pm ordered drinks which took a long time to arrive. We ordered our food at the same time and received our starters at 8:45. We queried why people who came in after us received their starters before us but were told they were cold starters whereas ours were hot and had to be cooked !!! At 9:15 after being offered complementary bread we rec'd our main courses. I appreciate the restaurant was busy but surely it should not take over an hour to receive a main course. Things need to be changed before I even think of returning. Janet Palmer."

  • "We had a lovely Sunday Roast which was delicious, and the Children's menu was lovely too. (Good quality suasages on the Children's Sausage & Mash). Although it was busy our service was excellent, the waitress was chatty with us and friendly with the children, she even persuaded my 8yr old to try some lettuce! She also had good product knowledge about everything on the menu and drinks available. Of course we'll be back!"

  • "Have been to The Bull once before, and I loved it then, and I loved it a second time around. We booked on the same day we went to restaurant, bearing in mind we went the weekend before Christmas and we received great food and a great service! The waitress warned us, as there is a large party, our food might take a while but there wasn't any delay as far as we could tell. Only minor complaint is that the dessert menu is not that great, would have liked to have seen more of the classic desserts but didn't bother me as I was so full from my mains. Would recommend to anyone wanting great food, reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. Lovely place to catch up with friends over dinner!"
    dined on 19/12/2013
  • "Brentwood is not exactly well endowed with great places to eat, particularly when it comes to pubs. So I was very pleased to find this pub via Top Table. The food was excellent and the waiting staff were very friendly. The ambience was fine, but it was Christmas party season, so was a bit noisy; and the locals did make it difficult to get to the bar when we first arrived. So, if you are dining, turn right, and let the waiting staff sort out the drinks."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "Enjoyed a really good meal at the Bull last night - good menu good service but regulars do hog the bar area and although the heating was on when we arrived the radiators were stone cold by 10.00 and we were cold.This would make me think twice about returning in the winter.I realise this is a way of saving money but will put many customers off - shame as it spoilt an otherwise great evening."

  • "Booked for a group of six for a pre xmas meet up. Booked online for a busy Saturday evening. Table was ready on time. Beautiful food, great atmosphere, fantastic service, A little expensive but well worth the money. The Crispy Pig starter was so tasty. Lots of choice on the menu. Something for everyone. Wine prices and selections very reasonable. Waitress really friendly and efficient. Have also been here for Sunday lunch which was delicious too. Thoroughly recommend this establishment!"
