Booked for one night by my wife. When we arrived the beer (Hooky) was about to run out but the barman gave me a free pint - it was still Ok to drink albeit a little cloudy. Our room was very comfy, great shower & toiletries. Only one snag was with all the bathroom space they jammed the loo right...

The inn has rooms , restaurant and a small bar area and you can eat anywhere in the pub. Menu has a good choice of foods, specials,...

We arrived late from the airport, but called in our order from the car since we knew the kitchen would be closed on arrival. Our food was kept warm and was ready within five minutes. Perfect, since we were both starving. I had the veggie pot pie and my wife the risotto. Both excellent. The design inside is quaint mixing...

Recently refurbished and reorganized this is a comfortable Cotswold Inn serving good quality reasonable priced food. Friendly staff did well even though it was very busy when we were there. A good selection of beers and a good and reasonable priced wine list. The various dining areas are attractively furnished and there is aan excellent eating/drinking area outside. Recommended

We came with anticipation and excitement as it had been recommended, booked a table for 8pm on a Saturday night, and on arrival the table was ready on a great spot. After this everything started to be disappointing. Firstly 2 dishes out of a small menu (on a Saturday at 8.15pm) already run out: fish & chips and their burger...

Good afternoon Zaria I am very disappointed to hear that we did not meet our standards on Saturday night. We have now put in place measures so that when we get busy like that again it won't take anything away from our service or food standards.

This is the most fantastic little Inn on the edge of the Cotswolds. Easily accessible from London, the train station is just a short walk away. The pub has been perfectly converted. All the charm remains, but with all catered to modern needs. Great open fireplace, good ales and friendly staff. And the food is absolutely perfect. Not too fussy,...

Overall The Bull Inn of Charlbury was a very pleasant stay. Accommodation was very good and the staff very friendly. Value for money very good. However there were a few concerns. Upon arrival I was kept waiting for around 20mins for no apparent reason, being told by several staff to wait and someone would be with me soon but assistance...
