Popped in for a drink and stayed to eat because the food looked amazing. We had duck and steak and both were really tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. The portions are huge! Drinks were good too, there's a decent sized outdoor seating area and the barmaid/waitress Kayley was really friendly and professional.

Ok, so got there at 9.30pmish on Boxing Day. It was literally like walking through a nightclub with our cases, there was live music and lots of people there. The music was very loud and distracting in our room. Generally the staff were pretty nice though, and the room was decent enough. Having said that, the water in the shower... More

While looking for a quiet escape from Christmas shoppers we chose the bull as it seemed quiet. When we went in it was much larger than it appeared from the outside. We were seated very quickly despite it being busy and food was also served quickly. Beautifully presented and generous helping. Particularly liked the chunky cut chips served as a... More

Really pleasantly surprised with the quality, quantity and value for money of this pub food. Would recommend for casual dining. There was certainly no room for dessert and the ploughmans I had would easily be enough for two people.

Stayed on Saturday for one night bed & breakfast. We decided to dine in the restaurant area on the Saturday evening and were totally blown away by the standard & value of the food we were served. It was absolutely delicious! (We enjoyed it so much so, following breakfast we had a late lunch on Sunday before we left!) Later... More

The Thai chicken curry was the best curry I've tasted in a pub enviroment, lots of moist peices of chicken in a spicy creamy sauce & soft fluffy rice. 1st time here for a lunch & despite it being full the service was superb. Would definatly recommend The Bull to anyone looking for a tasty lunch at a reasonable price

We stayed in room 5 on 30th October. Twin room at the front of the building with a separate bathroom across the landing just for our use (as other rooms were ensuite). All staff were absolutely lovely and breakfast was delicious with a few really nice touches too. Street noise during night but that's beyond their control and is something... More
