We were not expecting a lot, arriving very early evening just looking for a quick and functional meal, without spending too much. We thought The Bull was better than expectation. Friendly service, OK food.

Good points ..... The young man who met us on arrival was polite and very helpful. The room was clean and the location very central. Not so good points ...... The room (number 2) was very small and cramped. The toilet had some pump that constantly ran intermittently. The shower was Luke warm with a rubbish head which meant the... More

Stayed at the Bull Inn from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st June. The double room we were allocated was on the small side but clean and adequate for our needs. We did find out very soon that the toilet in the en-suite made some strange snarling noises at random very odd. Thursday night was spent down in the bar and... More

Don't bother with the car park though hard to get a space and only a fiver for over night on the multi-story. Location spot on, and if your a smoker... More

I recommended to my friends my out of town that we have lunch here.. Very much regretted that! Previously I've had great food here, but on this occasion food came and I found a dark hair in my food. I complained & the girl took my plate back to kitchen & didn't say anything! Not even a apology just "I'll... More

We called at the Bull Inn for lunch, after reading the menu, it sounded really nice. When we started to order from the menu, we were told, they had no Bacon or mushrooms for our meal. That's not a good start, when most of the lunch time meals had Bacon and mushrooms on the listing. We were told we had... More
