Our Story

The Bull and Butcher is a quintessentially English pub, built in 1550, nestled between the Chiltern Hills, in the quaint village of Turville in the Hambleden Valley, 6 miles from Henley-On-Thames. Delicious gastro pub food, excellent wines and fantastic real ales including Brakspear Ordinary and Oxford Gold Organic, along with regular guest ales from the area. Inside there are two main areas, The Well Bar and The Windmill Lounge, both with large open fires, original beams, and a relaxed pub atmosphere. There is a large sunny garden, and patio areas, ideal for a relaxing summer’s day. A further addition is our fantastic Function Room, ‘The Bull Room – Private Dining in the Country’. Seating up to 24, with glass barn doors out on to the patio, it is perfect for your private celebration

About Us

premium food experience

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.
