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...

We booked two nights here whilst attending a wedding nearby. We found all the staff we met to be really pleasant and friendly. The hotel is an old historic building with lots of character but tastefully modernised too. Our room was perfect,though hot due to the weather, but a fan was provided which we made good use of. Bed was... More

Very pleasant traditional English Inn. Comfortable room albeit quite small; bathroom tiny and required artful manoeuvring to use shower etc. Friendly staff - good breakfast. During my Saturday night stay there was noise from the street from time-to-time during the small hours as people made their way home past the hotel.

I needed somewhere to stay before an early meeting locally and am delighted that I found the Old Bull Inn. The welcome at reception was friendly and nicely informal and the building is very nicely preserved and original. My single room was very comfortable if a little hot on the evening but the staff had placed a fan in my... More

We had our wedding reception at the Old Bull Inn on Saturday 20th June 2015. We couldn't fault Ben and the staff. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The setting in the function rooms are beautiful and really fit our vintage romantic theme.it was a little warm at times but Ben accommodated us in no time with... More
