Stayed for 1 night in this wonderful country pub. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed like old friends. The staff and owner Jill was very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room, very comfy bed and fantastic full english breakfast. Would have no hesitation in recommending for a short overnight stay and plenty to see in... More

We all received a large portion of pie with chips and vegetables. It is nice that pubs still make home made meat pie in these... More

Great traditional pub, super service, smashing buzzy atmosphere, worth moving to West Tanfield just to visit more often. We were on holiday but were treated like locals. We will try to return as soon as possible.

Fantastic little find. Quaint pub with character and lively atmosphere. Staff are soo friendly and really interact with you. Nothing is too much trouble. Very busy for food, although we didn't eat there as we were going to a function, but the breakfast was fab. We enjoyed it so much, we have booked to go back in the New Year

We were staying nearby and this was the nearest pub that was open on a Monday evening. What a great find. A lovely old building with a great atmospere in the bar. A varied menu and the food and beer were good. A lovely spot overlooking the river from the beer garden.

Stayed at the Bull Inn West Tanfield and would recommend this Inn for a friendly atmosphere with excellent food and the best beer garden you could ask for. Lovely pint of Aspell cider, great breakfast and evening meal. The homemade pies are superb, I had the pork... More

Staying at a local campsite, we walked for about 15 minutes into West Tanfield and chose the Bull based on the menu and prices. We were not disappointed. Bench seating at the front gave us a view of the village church and caught the evening sun, perfect for a refreshing drink. We then chose to move to the rear terraced... More

We stayed 1 night at the Bull a week or so after the Tour de France had been through (lots of yellow all through the village). Our room was spacious ands clean with a nice bathroom. We enjoyed our evening meal and loved having a relaxing ale in the garden overlooking the river. Breakfast was excellent. Gill and the rest... More
