Sizable pub, very good smoking area at rear & also tables placed out the front. Pleasant barmaid. I had pints of Brakspear ''Oxford Gold'' [decent enough pint] & Thwaites'' ''Sharp Intake'' [nice pint].

This 17th century town centre pub promises more from the outside than it delivers within. The L shaped interior is very plain and featureless and almost has a Smith & Jones feel to it. There were 4 pumps with Banks Bitter, Ringwood 49er, Brakspear Oxford Gold (+ 1 unused pump) at relatively bargain prices but our Saturday lunchtime visit was overwhelmed by foodies and their admittedly hearty looking dinners making it impossible to bag a seat or table. There is a dart board in one corner, a Big Screen for sport and regular live music so you need to pick your time if you intend to have a peaceful visit. The “charm and quaintness” mentioned in its advertising wasn’t terribly obvious to me and the “beautiful beer garden” appeared to be little more than a patch of decking with umbrella covering unless I missed something. It isn’t the worst place in town by a long shot and there are a couple of decent ales but, despite its obvious popularity, I get the impression that most people come for its cheap and cheerful approach rather than anything of great substance.

Here is my afternoon report on Bull Inn! Staff very friendly and atmosphere very good. Enjoyed 4 pints of Marston's Ploughman's which were highly satisfying. I'll definitely be back.

Looks much more modern inside than the traditional exterior would suggest. Four real ales on, including a decent pint of Banks's Bitter. Seemed pretty busy, but I think that most people were from a single large party out on the town for the evening.

I have always enjoyed coming here either in the afternoons or evenings. Called in last night and had 2 Pints of Banks's which were very good. Staff were rearranging tables and chairs so perhaps the live music booked for last night never showed up. Music from CD player was on instead & was today's chart hits. I'll give an afternoon report on this pub soon.
