Our Food

Our Food


Here at the Bull & Butcher we have a strong philosophy that all of our ingredients should be fresh, of the highest quality and locally sourced where possible. We pride ourselves on the interesting, high quality dishes we provide.

Proprietor and Chef James Orford has an extensive culinary background including training under Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saison and himself bringing on young students while lecturing restaurant hospitality management. Almost all of his chefs are the former top students who he selected to continue their training under him and who have been part of the team from the beginning almost three years ago.

The common ethos is to provide interesting, high quality dishes using locally sourced ingredients. Starting with bread baked fresh each morning, all our dishes and ice creams are freshly prepared and 'home' cooked in our kitchens.

After three years of owning and running the Bull & Butcher, it became apparent that the pie of the day was particularly popular and so James and his team have moved forward to specialize in homemade pies and suet puddings. The pub offers a range of classic flavours including steak & ale, chicken and mushroom, venison, pork and apple, lamb and mint and even a vegan tofu, leek and mushroom. Pies are available in both a full shortcrust pastry with top, bottom and sides all encased in a homemade melt in the mouth shortcrust butter pastry and a lighter version with just a puff pastry lid for those counting the calories! Choose your own accompaniments to make the perfect pie meal designed for you. The star of the show is the steamed suet steak & kidney pudding which you seldom see on menus. All pies are entirely made on the premises and made with care and passion.

Please book tables particularly for the weekends and bank holidays to avoid disappointment. We do get exceptionally busy !

TripAdvisor Reviews

"Turville, amazing place with an old, small yet fantastic pub right in the centre. We've visited this pub a couple of times and must say - best food I've ever tried outside London. Big portions and most important....FRESH and organic. Highly recommended!!!"

"Vegetarian meals were superb. We had the halloumi salad with chips, and the mushroom burger. Both were excellent and it's great to see at least 2 proper vegie options on the menu . I eat a lot of halloumi at home and in Lebanese restaurants, and this was the best ever. Great beer too. And the sun shone".
