A truely idyllic place in a sleepy picture postcard village. Had an overnight stay plus dinner and breakfast. On the plus side: very good food (raye with Jersey royals - apart from the slightly burnt butter: really yummieh!) and a tastefully furnished room (I think, it was no. 2, very close the kitchen). However, there are some negative points, too:... More

We like country pubs who have really good food, decent beer and wine in a stunning location. When it's very close to home, what's not to like! Been various times over the last few years, after the present owners moved there. Never disappointed. Top marks!!!!

When it's at The Bull Inn. We booked a room here several weeks ago to tie in with a wedding we were attending 5 miles away. We rang a week before the wedding to make sure everything was ok, it was. We arrive on the day, an hour before the wedding to drop off bags and check in to be... More

Great family lunch, well looked after just the right amount of food and discreet service that delivered all good and drink at the right time. Would highly recommend. The garden room was private with access to the secure garden that was safe for toddlers to run off their energy.

Can only recommend this as... More

We regularly visit The Bull either for an evening drink or for dinner. The staff are always friendly and the food is always great. More expensive than typical pub grub but also better than typical pub grub with a nice selection of beers, lagers and wine. I have never stayed in the rooms so can't comment.

After driving for what seemed like through the Labyrinth of eternal mazes down a baron country road in the pouring rain, we arrived at The Bull Inn. When having arrived, due to it being a Friday night the car park was completely filled with locals car leaving no space for customers who have booked rooms. Luckily one space did open... More

A wonderful old 15th(?) century pub in one of the villages my ancestors came from. Log fires and expensive main courses but we had cheese and pickle sandwiches with chips - good and filling for about six pounds each. Real ale available and accommodation, too, which I'll try on my next ancestor hunting trip to England!
