We stayed at The Bull on the recommendation of friends, and weren't disappointed. Although it is a very old inn (16th Century I think) we stayed in one of the newly modernised stable rooms, which are excellently appointed, and still full of character. So the accommodation was great, but it was the quality of the restaurant that was the big... More

We had two, one course evening bar meals and opted to sit in the lovely quiet (except it is also Le Patron's lair) bar which had a welcoming log fire and entertaining view of the street. The plaice the first night was whole, looked huge but actually didn't have much flesh on it. What there was was very nicely cooked... More

The lobster is small but the taste is not too bad. But I really feel disappointed the main course for the sea food. They use Japanese sea food but the taste is horrible. The price £44 I paid is very disappointed. Trust me if you buy the £44 sea food of the Groupon you will feel disappointed like me. I... More

Went in today for lunch and the quality of food, cleanliness and service was superb. My wife had the burger which she said was the best she has had. My fish was fresh and tartar sauce was fresh. My daughter eat everything! Well done. The only thing I wish for here is cask ale on draught and not by bottle.

Wanted something special for my wife and I, as we are on our own with young childreen and no one to keep them if we want to go out. We were not desappointed on the quality of the food which was exceptional. The service was of a good standard when around and that was the problem. We have been forgotten... More

We turned up a bit late, and the staff were accomadating. The hotel is very unique, we great character. The floors slope, and the decor is classic. It has a homely but professional relaxed feel. The professional Service was excellent. I liked the style and the character. However the hotel was not made for the business users. Mildly comfortable beds.... More

We chose The Bull because it was one of the top-rated small hotels in the area of the Cotswolds that we were planning to see. I'm so glad we did! It's a small hotel where you feel at home immediately. It looks and feels just like what we imagined a "real" Cotswold house to be. We slept in the Market... More

On this occasion I was travelling on my own and can highly recommend the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere 'cosy' and relaxing. Food was lovingly presented with attention to detail. I was there for three days and slept well on a very comfortable bed; however,the breakfasts were such that they enticed you from your bed so...

I have been looking forward to returning to The Bull for a while now, having last visited Burford a couple of years ago and found this gem. I'm pleased to report it was every bit as good as I remembered. I believe the room I stayed in this time was a new addition to the hotel, situated in an old... More
