An upmarket and quite ridiculously beautiful village is served by a pretty pub and a nice garden. Yes, you should expect Hackett tops and people who voted Tory while the music – blaring dance tunes at full volume – in the bar was presumably chosen by the bored youths on the till. Food options looked good while the Brakspear offerings on tap were well kept. Only half a mile or so’s walk along a shaded path from Fingest where there is another lovely outside seating area.

Returned here after our disappointing experience in Feb 2012 (see prior reviews) to see if things had improved - and they have. The place was full inside and out on this glorious bank holiday Monday but the staffing was ramped up to cope - service was friendly and attentive. Unlike last time our drink and food orders were taken promptly at the table, and the food was just a little long in coming - about 25 mins for our party of 9. We had most of the dishes and they were all good to excellent (the "hand raised" (sic) beef and ale pie with pepper mash being particularly good. Really pleased to have given the B&B a second chance.

Smashing little characterful pub - the Brakspear's Bitter and Oxford Gold were still available as they were in August but the Wychwood offering this time was Dog's Boll*cks. Friendly, helpful chap behind the bar.

I expected this to be an upmarket village pub with pricey beer and food with a lot of very well spoken people sitting at reserved tables.

And it was.

But that doesn't tell the whole story. The pub is quite small with a large seating area outside, so I can imagine that at busy times it does get crowded. Beer was on the pricier side but I've had more expensive. They were serving Brakspears Bitter and Oxford Gold together with Wychwood Bountiful, which I hadn't had before and was impressed with.

The food was quite costly - Fish & Chips, Burger and Chips or Steak Pie with veg all weighed in at 12.50. But then I didn't expect it to be cheap - pubs north of Henley just aren't, so go prepared. And all three meals were very hot and very good. No complaints there.

The guy who served us was very attentive and efficient. So all in all, the Bull and Butcher, despite being what I expected, was actually quite good.

set in one of the most idyllic villages ive havd the pleasure of walking into, this old pub looks wonderful inside and out. on a sunny sunday afternoon it was full to the point of being almost uncomfortable. but, i guess this is not really a negative as its a testiment to the popularity.

food was hit and miss though . one dish superb, other dish actually awfull.

all the oxfordshire breakspear beers were really nice, and the service was great, especially considering how busy they were. definalty visit again.
