user reviews of Bulls Head, Boreham Street

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A proper village pub. A Harvey's house with three real ales on handpump: Best, Old and the pub's unique own brew, Bull Bitter. All very good. I didn't eat but the menu looked good and the people who were eating looked happy enought. Bar staff were very good too.

Highly recommended.

A real gem of a Harvey's pub; Hadlow, Best & Old all in very good condition. Food is reasonably priced and good as well. Definately recommended.

Walked to the Bulls Head from Pevensey on a recent Wednesday lunch time.
The Bulls Head has recently re opened and has another new owner from May 2009 the welcome was nice, a shame there were not more people on a pleasant summers lunch time between 12.30 and 2.15 I counted 6 other than ourselves.

Beer was good and well kept, all Harvey's .. Best, Harvey's Olympia (a nice light but potent 4.3%) Summer ale and Harveys Mild at 3%.

This pub has been very recently painted and smartened up quite a lot and was a bit more up market than before the new owners came.
There were just 2 specials on the chalk board but both looked tempting.
I chose half chicken in a tarragon and lime juice sauce with chips and salad.
Very tasty indeed and a large piece of chicken to boot, only criticism was that it looked a little pale (but perhaps that is a personal choice) Chips were standard deep fried frozen fayre.
For 7.50 it was nice though!
The other special was pan fried cod with pasta and cherry tomatoes, I THINK that was a little cheaper.
It is nice to see unusual things on a specials board.

The main menu included all the usual favourites, 1 of our party had ham and eggs and another an omlette. Two others had the pie of the day which today was chicken (8.50), all were very happy with their meals although the pie crust also looked a bit pale (me again?)

This pub IS trying and I am sure word will get around and it will attract a loyal crowd soon. Perhaps it is already busy in the evenings?

For me The Bulls Head scores a 6 out of 10, I have had far worse and paid a lot more and we will be going back to try again when we do the same walk later this year.

Visted here on a Lunchtime.
Pub has new owners think they are still finding their feet.
Ordered food but most wasnt available even though shown on the menu.
Avoid all costs the mashed potatoe as they forget to mash it.
Wont be back in a hurry unless it vastly improves
