Just returned from a nights stay at this delightful Inn. The room was clean, tidy and well equipped. Breakfast was very pleasant and service prompt. As far as guest accommodation goes this venue is more that acceptable. We are venturing back to this neck of the woods later this year and will be rebooking rooms. Well done and thank you... More

Booked 3 consecutive nights in august for myself and my wedding guests. From the beginning staff were proactive, helpful and friendly. I had a large number of booking with various comings and goings e.g. Some guests all 3 nights, some 1, some 2 but the staff made it easy and were very accommodating, consistently sending my lists of my latest...

I am sorry to have to report that I had the worst night sleep ever at the Old Bull Inn. And that is all due to the awful mattress which one of those very cheap spring mattresses. Despite having a topper the springs dug into us and as a back sufferer I just couldnt stay on it so put three... More

Our party of 17 people stayed at the excellent Old Bull Inn on the night before our daughter's wedding this week. Nothing was too much trouble for the managers and staff, we had a lovely meal in the highly recommended restaurant, the staff were friendly and efficient, even joining us in preparing church decorations for the next day! The rooms... More

We booked on a recommendation a double and twin room for a family funeral nearby. There was a warm welcome after a long car journey, the public car park was conveniently next door because the hotel's was full with people having lunch, but we got a space later. Both rooms were well appointed with good towels and were clean. There... More

We enjoyed an evening at the Folk Club in a separate room in the back courtyard, the room was lovely, wooden beams, small bar, friendly service. The People running the Folk club made us feel very welcome, the folk music excellent, would recommend and would go again and again.

Had a lovely meal here with work colleagues. Watch out though as portion sizes are rather large! We all had starters and were nearly full - duck wrap was lovely. Fillet steak main was cooked perfectly and tasted yummy. Sadly no room for dessert!

The short break was most enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and always on hand. The rooms were adequate and at a reasonable price. The restaurant had a varied menu at a good price. The breakfast menu was also great. If you are looking for a place to stay I can recommend The Old Bull Inn.
