An excellent addition to the Berkshire dining scene, The Bull Inn has earned scores of awards such as Cask Marque approval, Master Cellarman status and entries in the Good Pub and Beer Guides. Wooden beams, photographs and an open fireplace exude traditional elegance, inviting diners to sit back and enjoy a meal or a pint of beer.

Classic pub dishes sit alongside an eclectic choice of world cuisine such as duck foie gras parfait, chicken fajita wraps and chilli con carne. The Bull Inn menu includes a delightful rabbit pappardelle, teriyaki salmon with soba noodles and Thai vegetable curry with jasmine rice.

Those with a lighter appetite could try sandwiches stuffed with jerk-spiced home cooked ham, sweet pear and Stilton and warm topside of beef. The Bull Inn’s drinks list is extensive, featuring Fuller’s ales, lagers, wines and cocktails.

In the quaint village of Sonning-on-Thames, The Bull Inn Berkshire is a short drive from Reading Rail Station.

    Lovely pub and fantastic food! My friend said it looked like the Seabass came off 'Masterchef' and it tasted great too.

    Always enjoy the experience here. Atmosphere is great especially on a wintry day. Can't beat the roast and if you ask nicely you even get more gravy!!! Service is always polite.

    Very busy evening with Christmas bookings but staff friendly and apparently stress free! Travelled here before and always had excellent service and good food. Happy to return!

    As always fantastic food and drink. However service on this visit was very slow and our food took a long time to come meaning we had to rush at the end of the meal as we were tight for time. Didn't look that busy either as empty tables.
