From the moment that we arrived at this hotel I felt so looked after. One of the owner's checked us in and showed us to our hotel room; he was absolutely lovely and chatted to us on the way up. We were staying in one of the hotel's themed rooms, called Daisy, and we didn't know what to expect. The... More

I cannot recommend the Bull Inn higher enough. Excellent value for money, with a wide range of drinks and food on offer. The staff were really accommodating and worked tirelessly to keep the Hotel in tip top condition.

We stayed here as we were visiting Newmarket Races. On arrival, we had lunch, which was superb. My partner had the enormous home-made burger in brioche bun. I had beautifully cooked and presented hake fillet with scallops. Both meals were absolutely perfect, with local produce and served by friendly and happy staff. We checked in and were shown to the...

We drove up from Essex to Mildenhall, and after Newmarket where we intended to lunch on our return, we noticed severe jams going south. Consequently, following a recommendation, we had lunch at The Bull which was pleasantly and efficiently served by the friendly Katie. My Wife and I enjoyed the Halibut (apart from the very tough kale) and the Cod... More

We stayed here because we were at Newmarket races. We would certainly return if we are in the area again. All the food is locally sourced and was excellent as was the service The Inn has a very dedicated local clientele which is always a good sign. I'm always encouraged by businesses that keep their staff and the Bull Inn... More

We chose this venue when going to Newmarket races as it's about a 10 mile drive away. The rooms were small but comfy, the bathroom did not have any soap so we ended up using shower gel to wash our hands. The staff were helpful and the food was nice. One criticism was that the room we stayed in faced... More

Stayed at the Bull Inn recently on business. What a fantastic hotel! The rooms are fabulous, each quirky in their own way and each with a personality. The decor is fantastic and everything is of a very high quality. What really makes the hotel though is the staff, a really lovely bunch of people who clearly love it there and... More
