Disgusting food, poor service! We waited an hour for 4 baguettes all of which were of the poorest quality. We will not be returning! They were not helpful, huffing and puffing whilst we ordered, wish we walked at the time rather then waiting 😡😡

Went for the Sunday lunch carvery which was generous but average, although the swede had a bit of an odd tang to it. The place was very clean and the staff pleasant. but was disappointed overall. Some other customers chose to leave when they saw the carry but cannot see why they felt so strongly.

Sue needs a VAT inspection. I Paid rent for 2014 £3500 for my caravan in advance and SHE will not pay me back, she also SOLD it for 8750.00. when the current owners paid her £12000.00. She needs locking up . XX This is not the end.

The owner Sue is very welcoming, the pub is a traditional country pub, selling excellent food, a good selection of wine and beer. Nothing was too much trouble for Sue, and we spent a very entertaining evening at the pub, followed... More

We stayed here for one night over Easter to visit family in nearby West Bexington. The Bull was clean, friendly and flexible in allowing us to have our third child sleeping on a blow up bed in the family room, which has a double and two singles. A relaxed atmosphere, breakfast was cooked fresh for us when we turned up... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. It is a sad fact that in the autumn the gardens are not at their best, the plants were still alive, once they have all died off we then remove all the old foliage ready for next spring , nature is not kind to the gardens. But Spring/Summer our... More
