Stopped in for the first time and was quite impressed. Excellent selection of brews, a simple food menu and a cozy atmosphere with a nice, wood bar and tables and a punched tin ceiling.

The bartender was very enthusiastic and service was very prompt. He spotted my empty glass almost immediately! If you are at a table, which we were, you order your drinks and food from the bar. Speaking of food, we each had a warm turkey sandwhich with roasted red peppers, avocado and chipolte mayo. A big thumbs up on these.

There were to casks and quite a few pull taps. I met another patron who said he's here weekly and the rotation is excellent. Also met the owner and thanked up for putting a destination beer bar in Lancaster County.

Phenomenal pub. The atmosphere is great, their bartenders are very knowledgable, their tap selection is typically the best in all of central PA, and the food is pretty good as well. The bar manger does an excellent job of wrangling esoteric brews that are nigh-impossible to find elsewhere in PA, and they maintain a consistently solid bottle selection.

English style pub. Bar, and seating areas, but all ordering is through the bar.

Good selection of about a dozen craft and import beers, plus a couple of cask beers.

We had a few appetizers that were good.

Stopped in for a brew after dinner at Appalachian. Very nicely done English pub. The place was packed. Noisy (tin ceiling and hardwood floors) but not overly so. Bartender was quick and accurate. I'd go there a lot if I lived in Lititz!

Stopped in for lunch after a visit to the chocolate factory around the corner.
Some decent beers on tap, current choices would be an IPA lover's (not me) delight. Was happy they had a decent stout. Great pub vibe, seat yourself, if tables available, order at the bar but great service and food was pretty quick even though it was quite busy at the time. Reuben sandwich was great, wife had chicken and leek pie, also great. Reasonable prices. A good experience.

One of the worst beers I've ever tasted came from here. And the rudeness of the clientele is almost entertaining in its extremity. But it's still a magnificent location with a stellar beer selection and I miss it being my local hangout. Try the nachos... or any food, really. It's all amazing.

I live 5 minutes from Bull's Head and I'm damned appreciative of that fact! There's always something good on tap, the prices are good, the service is good, the food is top shelf and since they've expanded their seating area both inside and out, it's a nice place to hang out as well! I've had plenty of "first time" beers here and I plan on having plenty more. Well worth a visit if you happen to be in the area.

A place to visit in Lititz. Very much in the style of a British Pub (with some influence of a US style bar showing).

The service is first rate and the beer list is excellent.

The owner knows and understands cask beer so sometimes it is there to be found and a pint is served properly.

Service was speedy and attentive.

Did not try the food.

Great service, great food, great beer. I was there for the cask ale festival and was very impressed with the selection. The food is delicious. The bartender filled our growlers early when we explained that we had to go to work before the festival reopened. The pub breakfast on Saturdays is delicious. The bison burger is excellent.
