|An 8 mile walk from Thatcham to Aldermaston was punctuated by lunch at The Bull. And very pleasant it was too.|
From the outside a typical village pub. Not huge but with a garden front and back. Beers available were Landlord, Good Old Boy and guest Batemans Yella Belly Gold. We plumped for the GOB which was excellent. 3 pints of the stuff slipped down a treat. And at £3 per pint, it was 60p per pint cheaper than the beer we had last week in an inferior establishment which wasn't nearly as good.
Food - there's a sandwich menu, a starter menu, a specials menu and an a la carte menu, so there's plenty of choice. The food isn't cheap - specials are around the £13-£15 mark, the a la carte goes up past £20. We went for Bacon Chop, Sirloin Steak and Fish and Chips, all of which were very good indeed. My fellow walker who had the steak waxed especially lyrical about it.
The staff were chatty and very attentive. The pub gradually filled up through the lunchtime period and it certainly seems to be popular. And with good reason.
The Bull is kinda what I expected to find in this area but it is a very good example of its genre. Good beer, good food, pleasant staff, nice pub. What more could you want.

|The Bull re-opened Sunday 15th May 2011 and was looking good and busy.|
Familiar face of Laura from the Queens Head at nearby Bradfield - a good pub too.
Worth checking out for dinner very soon.

|The Bull is re-opening in May 2011 and will be run by the same people who run the Queens Head in Bradfield Southend. Should be good if that's anything to go by! |

|Passed by Monday 18/10/10 - not convinced the Bull is open - the note on the front door would suggest not. There are 3 of the bright orange planning notices though by the entrance to the car park so some work is being planned. West Berks council ref 10/01901/LBC found on the planning portal has further information.|

|It appeared open when we passed on Sunday, but the phone number in the BT book 0118 974 4582 just has anonymous answer message. I'll go there mid week and check.|
