"The Bulls Head in Clandon is ashort distance from the National Trust property in Clandon. The pub has retained much of its original charm and has the appearance of an Old Coaching Inn. The food is excellent value with the home made pies its speciality. There is a specials board with some interesting dishes on it. The ambience is sedate and is best for couples or small groups. Cask ale is also sold here. It is well worth a visit."
"A pub that still has a Dickensian feel about it - probably by virtue of its being old and quaint. It's clean with oak beams and is divided into three small areas. There were three different cask ales on when we were in last, but where it shines is the food - it has an excellent menu, with the house speciality being home-made pies. There is the printed menu and specials board on displays, providing exceptionally good value. And it shows - the pub can get crowded as it's popular, so our advice is not to get there too late. The service is fairly formal but quick. Overall, it may be more a place to eat rather than just go for a drink. Customers in the main tend to range from the over 30s to quite mature. And another warning it's not really a jeans and T-shirt place - at least smart casual is a good idea."
The Bulls Head in Clandon Surrey is in a rural location a short distance from the National Trust property in Clandon. The pub is very authentic with several small section and oak beams. The menu is either a choice from the printed one or the daily special board.. The pubs speciality is the home made pies which are fabulous, large portions and tasty. The food generally is hot with generous portions and excellent value. Orders are taken at the bar and the food is usually delivered to the table within 15 minutes. The staff are friendly and helpful. As the pub is small it does tend to get busy as it is very popular so you may have to wait for a table. If you enjoy cask ales there is always a choice of 3 different ones which are well kept. A small car park at the side of the pub. Strongly recommended. Clientele tends to be mainly couples or small groups and dress id usually smart casual. Probably not a place to bring children and it is quite refined.
“Gorgeous country pub”
Reviewed April 2, 2013
We have been visiting the Bull's Head on and off for about 25 years. It always was and still is a lovely unpretentious local pub.
The beer has always been good, and the food has varied between OK and really good Over the last few years it's been mainly really good. It's most definitely not haute cuisine. Instead it's genuine home cooked traditional pub food - Yes, the vegetables tend to be a bit overcooked to my taste, but most of the people who eat there prefer their vegetables that way. The home made pies (my favourite is the Steak and Mushroom) are quite superb. I can also highly recommend the ham, egg and chips.
If you want Gourmet Pub food (with the prices to match) there are the Horse and Groom at Merrow (a surprisingly good chain pub) or the Onslow Arms (food varies dramatically depending on the current ownership), but if you want good honest pub food at a very reasonable price in comfortable, friendly surroundings, this is the place to go.
“A Cosy Place for Lunch”
Reviewed December 30, 2012
We arrived at 12 noon and it was fairly quiet with a few tables reserved for lunch but by 1 pm it was absolutely full with every table taken. The pub looked very pretty and cosy with all the Christmas decorations and lights and the service was excellent. The home made pies are a speciality of the pub and we all chose beef and ale pie which was delicious. The portions are generous and it was difficult to eat everything - the chips and vegetables were excellent. Certainly a pub to make a return visit.
