The Bull Thurrock
Well laid out, friendly atmosphere, the restaurant food was out of this world
Not for Valentines Day as menu limited and food not great. Perhaps because there were more people than normal ? Steak was on the tough side (lady on next table sent hers back twice ! ). Dauphinois potatoes not nice at all ☹️. We are not the type to send things back though.
Visited the Bull a few times and the food is very good!
Bit noisey on Friday, but it was Valentine’s Day and busy...
But again couldn’t complain about the food!
Good beer and Lamb Shank. Would recommend and will go again
Had the carvery, meat good but roast potatoes awful as were the parsnips that we’re barely roasted. Not a great selection of Veg. Our waitress was miserable and didn’t even crack a smile. They were very slow at everything and took over 40 minutes just to get our desert. Shame as the pub is nice.
Beautifully refurbished, lovely atmosphere, friendly service, even the manager came over to make sure we were happy. We ordered of the set menu, good price and choice. the food tasted fresh and hot. Really enjoyable experience. We will be going back.
Fantastic buffet. Great venue and great service. Meat was amazing
Went with my 86 year old aunt who is quite frail and doesn’t hear well when there’s a lot of noise. They treated her like a queen, carrying her plate from the carvery and checking on us regularly. It was a bit noisy which affects her ability to remember things but she enjoyed it. Excellent value, lovely staff and delicious food. We shall go again. Great to be able to park in their car park too.
Food absolutely gorgeous,staff very polite and helpful. Have been here for a meal quite a few times, never disappoints.
Very relaxed enjoyable Sunday lunch. Good value for money. Pleasent staff. Lovely background music
Hi myself, daughter and a couple of friends attended this establishment for a celebration of my grandsons birth...the decor was beautiful service was fabulous and manager was accommodating....we was very happy with the service would highly recommend and will defiantly be coming back
As soon as we walked into the Bull we was welcomed and shown to a nice table, we were a bit hot and the manager kindly cooled it down! The waitress was friendly and efficient and very attentive! The food was hot and tasty!
Can’t wait to go back!
Restuatnt area separated from pub part I thought was good .
Friendly atmosphere, overall decent food and decent service. Would go back .
I brought my sister here for lunch for her birthday after a great dinner experience a couple of weeks ago. We was not disappointed. Food was absolutely delicious again. Looking for another reason to come back soon :o)
The food was really good, I would have probably gone earlier if I’d have known how empty it would be at 7pm. The service wasn’t great we weren’t shown to the table, didn’t get menus until after drinks. When I asked for a cocktail menu I was asked what I wanted and obviously if I’d had known that I wouldn’t have asked for the menu!!! The food was great, slightly cold Yorkshire and didn’t have all the meats. Definitely would come back but earlier
We had a lovely meal for my Dad's birthday so I want it go well, The Bull didn't disappoint. An excellent choice of food, very quick service and friendly staff. There are very few pubs that do food ouside of the standard 12-2 and 6-9 so it's great that we have the flexibility of being able to book outs8de thsee times. It was particularly quiet when we went, but by no means a bad thing. I'm also pleased to find out that you are also dog friendly, which is also rare down here in Essex! I will certainly be returning in the future
Lovely pub, friendly staff, Fabulous garden space lots of parking. Food was delicious. Cant wait to go back. Kids loved it too.
Lovely place, loads of parking, delicious food. Only downside was it was extremely quiet, we were the only table in, so not much atmosphere
I had a lovely lunch with my friend on Tuesday in the restaurant area.
Very nice Sunday lunch, relaxed atmosphere, I will be definitely returning.
Great food, well cooked and delightfully served by our waitress.
It was lovely as usual. I love this restaurant 😊
The restaurant was hot and busy !! Asked to sit outside and told grill food only. Great lunch though
Good food decent price and easy to book. Real ale available as well so all in all a good evening
This was my first visit to The Bull which we booked based on reviews and menu to celebrate my nan's birthday. The food and service was incredible, I had the steak which was huge and the seabass was lovely and thick - would highly recommend the food here. My only observation would be that we came for dinner on a Friday which is obviously a big night out for some and being around the corner to the bar area meant it was quite noisy. However, it didn't interfere with our night at all.
Wasn’t informed they would need our table after us and was constantly being asked if we wanted dessert!!!
Who wants a dessert straight after the mains and a starter need at least half an hour between courses. Had to ask 3 times for a glass of water for my daughter.
Did not like the Eton Mess far too much cream in it and had to leave it probably didn’t help that had to try to eat it to soon after my mains.
Absolutely love our new local, fantastic for children, really good food, clean, perfect!
Carvery delicious, live jazz band were amazing and the huge garden/outdoor bar/area is a real selling point for this place, there is something for everyone!
Fantastic food, friendly atmosphere, had a great night , cocktails a little pricey but other than that fantastic
Had a meal at the pub and chose the daily choice for the main dish of seafood platter with finely chopped salad and a small bowl of chips, as a bonus. The platter was delicious, presentation was fabulous, loved every bite of the food. The whole experience was fabulous. Everytime eaten there, the food is amazing. A huge thanks to the chefs.
Love this place, just moved to the area and this little gem is a great bonus
This was our first visit to The Bull and we were very impressed. We went on a Thursday evening so it wasn't too noisy. The service was good, food was excellent. Very comfortable seating far enough away from the bar not to be too noisy. Excellent overall, would definitely visit again
Excellent pub, definitely recommend. Staff are really pleasant and cannot do enough for you.
Greeted by waitresses who had our booking to hand. Choice of tables. Excellent steak for me and lamb for Mrs.
Attentive service. Reasonable prices.
This is my third time at the bull and never had a bad experience staff are very friendly and polite and helpful value for money and would definitely recommend for a nice meal and a good atmosphere.
The food, service & atmosphere was perfect. It was all very enjoyable & would definitely recommend it to friends.
The service was good and all food and drinks served with a smile. We were not hurried out and had plenty of time to catch up with old friends. The food was enjoyable and well presented and there was a good choice of food and drinks/cocktails etc.
Always ave a good meal at the Bull this week it was exceptional
Table wasn't ready when we arrived. Place was packed with people who had clearly been drinking all afternoon. There was shouting, loud laughter and children running wild. Finally sat at our table where we were jammed in and could hardly move. It took ages for someone to take our drink order and then ages for someone to take our food order. The carvery ran out of parsnips and the other food was bland and greasy. A group sat at the table next to us and were so loud and drunk that we couldn't hear our own conversation. It took so long for our plates to be removed that we moved them to an empty table ourselves. We were then told that the entertainer booth which was booked months ago for 14th April may not be ready on time!!!! So disappointed because we came to The Bull at Christmas time and it had recently been refurbished and looked lovely. The food was delicious too. It seemed that we finally had a nice local restaurant but unfortunately quality has been sacrificed for quantity.
at nearly £19.00 for a carvery and sweet,to expensive ,disappointed, changed menu system on sundays,sorry but will not be going back.
