Set in the picturesque English village of Woodhouse Eaves, The Old Bulls Head is a refurbished traditional pub serving modern British & European cuisine. With chocolate brown and raspberry pink walls, plenty of leather armchairs & wood-burning fireplaces, this gastro pub is a cosy country-style retreat.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Old Bulls Head menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Old Bulls Head bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Old Bulls Head in Leicestershire is a 10-minute drive from Barrow-upon-Soar Rail Station.

    We walked in and waited in the front bar for more than 5minutes and nobody turn up to greet us,so we made our own way to the restaurant to ask if someone can offer us a drink or give us a table..But after we're seated everything was absolutely lovely,food,drinks..

    Food overall was really good, there were a lot of appealing items on the menu from starter to desert and they lived up to it. The service however didn't quite meet up to the standard of the food. The service on drinks in particular was slow, we were in a position overlooking the bar and for every round we could see that our drinks had been made and were sitting on the bar waiting to be served for 5-10mins - I don't really understand why so many members of staff would walk past a tray of drinks and not do anything about it. Orders are also managed on apps on iphones - I presume this makes it easier for orders to be submitted, but it does seem to take a lot longer for orders to be made and it's difficult for the server to interact with the customers whilst tapping on their iphone.
    TLDR - food better than average, service below.

    Atmosphere brilliant cleanliness brilliant and staff worked over and above exceptions, we enjoyed a roast dinner which was thoroughly enjoyable and the idea of a smaller desert and coffee was a clever move as we were well full after the excellent lunch ????????X.
