The self-contained flat is brand new and very large. 2 bathrooms, quiet, and beds so comfy I am ordering same mattress! Perfect for your own space but breakfast a few paces away at the main building. Staff very helpful and breakfast very good.

My room was clean but very small and cramped with an adequate en suite shower room. I had to search for the overbed light switch which I eventually found hidden behind a curtain. The bed was on castors that sent the bed rolling whenever I pushed against it. At £79 for the night it was overpriced, A twin room I... More

the manager and his staff were so good and solved a real poser to balance numbers and timings and hunger. In fact they were beyond good just brilliant. Such a shame the fried fish and chips was tired and not worthy of the service.And a fantastic jazz band in the court yard was a real bonus. Would have stayed longer... More

My partner and I often pop into The Old Bull after work, the staff are superb! We organised a little birthday celebration and stayed the night. We were not disappointed in a thing. This hotel is a little gem. I would highly recommend a stay! Our food was delicious and the breakfast was fantastic too. The service you receive is... More

I stayed here while on a business trip, and even though the room was very small, it was comfortable, and cleanish, the shower room was a bit grimy, to the point where I didn't use it. but everything else was ok. the bar is nice, as is the evening food and the breakfast in the morning. and the staff on...

stayed in room 7 which was classed as a double room, it in fact is a single room with a double bed pushed against the wall, with a shower which needed a good clean, (no bath) and the cold tap in the basin was constantly running, unable to turn it off, would not recommend, poor value for money at £89...

we stayed here for 2 nights as we were in the area for a family wedding, The décor fits the age of the building perfectly, clean, traditional but with nod to the modern in a discrete and appropriate way. the young chap in charge was very pleasant and eager to please. The whole experience from booking to leaving was great.... More

Interesting two night stay in this 17th century inn - low ceilings, creaky floors and small bedroom but the ambience and staff were very good plus free Wifi. Breakfasts all cooked to order. Parking available.

We recently stayed over the weekend of 4th-5th July for a local family wedding and were most impressed by the owner of the hotel and his courteous staff, who couldn't do enough for us to make our stay a happy and comfortable one. We would thoroughly recommend the attractive Old Bull Inn, with all its old world charm, whether it... More

The accommodation is delightful - spacious nicely furnished. We had a lovely drink in the courtyard and the staff were brilliant. My only comment would be and why I swithered from 4 versus 5 stars is that the breakfast could be improved. The bacon and sausage were not of the best quality and it was all served on one plate...
