Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bulls Head

Attractive old coaching inn, and still operating as a hotel, albeit thoroughly remodelled and modernised inside and out but not completely losing all of its character. Entering through the courtyard, you find various seating / dining areas inside, all with the vaguely inoffensive 'charm' of a Vintage Inn to the general visitor if not the traditionalist... Two of three handpumps in use, offering Doom Bar and Purity Pure UBU (£4.75).

Before the current A45 was ploughed through Meriden was the halfway point on the Birmingham-Coventry road and the number of pubs here shows it was a natural place to break your journey. The Bull's head has been around for nearly 500 years and I guess the M&B Premium Country Pub plus Innkeeper's Lodge operation still fulfils the same purpose. Though if you have that purpose to fulfil there are many, many better places to fulfil it.

It is, of course, indistinguishable from any number of similar places along our main roads, and any coaching-inn atmosphere has long since been bastardised out. Largely a restaurant but there's a reasonably pubby area with a choice of Doombar, Doombar or Doombar. I stuck to Eurofizz, a pint of which plus a J2O and a packet of cheese and onion ran the wrong side of eight quid. The garden looks nice should the sun make an appearance, a rarity this soggy June.

Fascinatingly the only other punters present were a couple sat at the bar complete with a pile of coins, B&H and lighters, phones in leather cases, bling and Benidorm tans. I wondered if they were holographic projections from 40 years ago.

More a restaurant than pub with most of the tables laid out for diners. Standard range of national beers. The TT Landlord was fine.Sat outside in the pleasant rear garden
