It's still pleasant. But is has been affected by the general "Loads a Money" Chislehurst vibe. Pints there two weeks ago were £5.25, the Ordinary I hope was cheaper... I was meeting a close friend I hadn't seen for a time, I was not price sensitive for a change.

As a family we stopped eating there when Ham and Chips was on the menu at circa £12. I notice the online menu does look a lot more reasonably priced, so maybe it got cheaper again ?

The clientele seemed to be young, pretty and with lots of dosh. I am none of these things !

RIP the old Public Bar, completely ripped out now, so if you want a pint in this area you have to navigate through a minefield to get to the main bar. Might be ok during quieter times but on Friday and Saturday evenings it is dreadful. John Young would be turning in his grave if he could see what has happened to one of his flagship pubs.

Waited 12 minutes last Saturday to get served in the right hand bar (facing the pub from the main road). If I hadn't been there for a reunion I would have moved on to another pub. Whether it's down to cost cutting or training I don't know, but there's a certain amount of arrogance that is creeping in with some of the staff, they'd rather have a chat in the small kitchen area rather venture into the smaller bar. The management try hard communicating with customers via twitter, emails etc. but the end product is disappointing. There is a table in the middle of the floor which on Fridays and Saturdays is just an obstruction, if you sit there you constantly get knocked and bashed - it might work lunchtime but not during busy periods. Beer is in good condition, if you have the patience to get served. The Ramblers and the Imperial Arms both provide a better drinking experience in Chislehurst at the moment.

As a keen dog owner I love this pub. The only place for miles you can get a welcome , and Bob the Dog usually gets free biccies.

I loved Young's Brewery , did the 135 tour years ago. Was a bit devastated when the ultra-traditional brewery sold up to make a packet. Geeeeee ...

I've nearly always enjoyed the food & the beer is fine. Parking can be fraught.

As a resident of Chislehurst I have been a regular at the Bulls Head Hotel. Unfortunately I have had a particular bad experience on my last two visits that has left me wondering whether to return.

1) 6 of us went for Saturday lunch. The pub was quiet however we waited over an hour for a few very basic dishes. Most annoyingly when the food did arrive, three out of the 5 dishes ordered (all vegetarian lasagne's) arrived cold. We duly asked for them to be returned to the kitchen and unbelievably they were returned cold again, with garlic bread that had simply been put to one side why the lasagna was re-microwaved. However, I must say on complaint to the manager they were generous enough to refund the cost of all the meals served.

2) Most recently we visited with some friends and their 3 year old little girl. Our friends asked if they could heat up a un-opened tin of spaghetti as their child suffers with numerous of allergies and couldn't eat food from the menu, They refused due to it being 'against the law'. I completely understand that restaurants need to be health and safety conscious, however it is not true that it is against the law they are simply protecting themselves from the remote possibility of being sued should the child burn their mouth. In addition, this healthy & safety consciousness did not seem to stretch to them cleaning off the trays on the high chair provided. Baby wipes to the rescue. However, on this occasion food was good and only a very minor error of cheese missing from the cheeseburger.
