This is an interesting English pub located in rural PA. There are several rooms, each unique, with a dark wood clad bar in the center room. The service was efficient and helpful. A thoughtful yet small selection of draft beers awaits patrons along with a categorized bottle list. The food sounded good but we were in-between meal times.

This is a very traditional looking British style pub attached to a hotel in a very picturesque rural town center. Everyone seemed to know everyone else, staff and customers alike, and it seemed more like a family reunion than just a Sunday afternoon at a pub. The interior reminded me of my grandmotherís house, with lots of creaking floorboards and antiques places neatly about. Main bar room with stools and rows of tables were complemented by an adjoining dinner room on one side, and a more formal sitting room of the hotel on the other. Even the mens room was interesting - after having lived in Southern Europe Iím used to seeing women in the mens room, but this one took me by surprise. Both the draft list and the bottle list were interesting and mostly regional, including some local ciders, one on draft. Food looked tasty, but we didnít eat, although we probably should have. This is the kind of place Iíd like to spend my evenings in. My guess is that the hotel would make a nice base for exploring the area, and the bar would be a cozy way to end every evening.

Attached to a country inn about 8 miles north of Lancaster. Authentic, warm, inviting atmosphere. Well rounded, seasonally correct tap selection. Crowded, but friendly, with an exceptional bar staff. Good food; a step above the typical pub grub, highlighted by some English specialties. (There is a patio around the corner, also connected to the Inn, but the tap selection is limited, maybe 6-7, and the service is spotty)

Iím so glad we made it out to this place. Really good food, great ambiance, good service, and very nice selection of beer both on tap and in bottles. The two cask lines are a nice treat as well. Not cheap, but certainly not pricey either. Weíll definitely make our way back here if weíre ever nearby again.

Has the feel of a rural English pub though I had to deduct a point for the Liverpool scarf. No tvís here so this place is built for good convos and enjoying good beer. Itís not a big place but they also have some outdoor seating. They have 14 taps plus 2 on cask. The service is very good with the bartender I encounterd able to give descriptions of all his beer and make recommendations. The crafts are split between regional, national. And European craft. The bottle selection is not terribly unique but itís solid. Iím kind of shocked to find a place this cool in a ton like this. If this is your local, youíre very lucky.

The vibe was pretty good. It is a pretty small place so seating is hard to come by. I got a seat at the bar and took stock of my surroundings. Lots of different things all over the walls including a large chalk board with the current beers and the entire menu. The service was very good as well. Those guys really know there stuff and have plenty of beer knowledge to go around. Prices seemed to be a tiny bit high but I am always willing to pay a bit more for better quality, and this place screams quality.
The food seems to be a mix of Gastro Pub and authentic british fare. I saw quite a few things on the menu that I would love to try but I ended up going with the Bulls Head Burger and it was top notch and tasted very good. The beer selection was pretty good. A few regional offerings and the rest from all over the world. Two cask offerings as well, I ended up going with the cask Green King/Morland Brewery ∑ Old Speckled Hen, and it was really good. Overall the Bulls Head is a great place to stop if you are in the area Trust me, you will not be disappointed if you do.

Great little bar, and I do mean little. Maybe enough room for 35 people to be comfortable. Love the look, British-pub esque.
Service was decent, bartenders were attentive but seemed to be slightly unsure of their selection at times. I can understand that, though, as they have a vast bottle selection, a good number of taps, plus usually a cask.
Have yet to try their food in the five times Iíve been there, but will be making a point of it next time Iím up.
Food seems a bit pricy from looking at the menu, but the beers are all reasonably priced. expect 4-8 bucks for a beer, unless youíre going for something way high end.
Overall, great place, nice location, but parking can be a pain in the ass. Add on to that shorter hours than a lot of bars and a number of times the street is closed for fairs and celebrations, which detracts from the experience a bit. If you plan on going, check out if Lititz has any events going on at the time, they can really but a crinkle in plans.

A really great little place, and right around the corner (from me). A solid selection of bottles, great stuff on tap, and terrific service. Have been back a couple of times for dinner as well, and the foodís terrific. And to top it off, their website/Twitter/Facebook feeds were nicely up-to-date. Great work, guys!

Small British-style pub just off the square in Lititz, PA. The bar itself is origi8nally from England. 14 beers on tap, plus 2 cask-conditioned. English-style pub food. Will go back.
