Review on The Bull & Butcher
A TV celeb among country inns, the Bull & Butcher has made regular appearances in numerous series including 'The Vicar of Dibley' and 'Midsomer Murders', and anyone who also knows the classic movie 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' will recognise the white windmill that is perched on a steep ridge behind the pub.
Nestling in a quiet corner of the Chilterns, just six miles from Henley on Thames, the listed building (circa 1550) is not only famous for its stunning location and TV pedigree, it also has a reputation for providing excellent food and liquid sustenance for walkers, tourists and families alike.
The interior divides up into two atmospheric areas - the Well Bar and the Windmill Lounge - along with the separate Bull Room, which comes into its own for family Sunday lunches served at a huge elm table. On the food front, visitors can expect a user-friendly selection of dishes that runs from ploughman's, salads and burgers to tian of crab and avocado with lemongrass and ginger dressing, calf's liver with lemon, sage and wholegrain mustard mash, or spinach, asparagus and chestnut mushroom lasagne. Brakspears ales are on draught and there's also a short, well-chosen wine list for fans of the grape.
