First time visit. Very impressed. Probably think that the few poor reviews on here are more of a reflection on the guests concerned rather than the hotel. There are some people who I think travel around for the sole purpose of finding something wrong with a place. Room extremely comfortable lovely bed excellent bathroom. Quirky corridors so could do with... More

Arrived earlier than planned before the room was ready and so had lunch in the bar. Lovely food and atmosphere. I was on my own but the staff were very friendly and I felt perfectly comfortable. The food is great. My husband and I had dinner in the bar and both had the mixed grill which was excellent. The room... More

We have been to The Bull In numerous times for dinner and is has never been disappointing. We take our friends and family when they come to visit. I think they have the best fish and chips in the Mildenhall area and so far the best fish I have had since being in England. We always eat in the pub... More

Hi Guys, Thanks so much for your review. We do pride ourselves on our Fish and Chips as it is such a popular dish of ours. Of course the sticky toffee pudding deserved the mention you gave it :-) See you again soon Sonia and the team xx More

Wow!!! What a fantastic night!!! The buffet was spectacular! The venue was amazing! The entertainment and the staff exceptional! Although I think the only thing was that the staff were dressed a little tacky for the event! Inappropriate I think for the type of occasion! Shame! Looked a bit like Hooters in Nottingham! The rooms are amazing the bed is... More

I called to book a room for a personal photo shoot and got the 3rd degree from the "lady" on the phone. I couldn't understand why she was asking me so many questions but she explained that other guests were staying and would not like the noise of a bunch of people going in and out of the room slamming...

We ate here last night and had an excellent experience. There were 3 of us eating and we all chose something different from the menu. Everything was served piping hot and well presented and the service we received was excellent. We are not local to the area so sadly can't eat here regularly but based on the experience we had...

Visited The Bull Inn again last night, it's been at least 18 months since we had been and we had missed it. The lady behind the bar who I think is the manager took our drinks order. I wanted a cocktail she recommended Bakewell Tart, the best I have ever had.. I had two! For starters one of us had... More

I would like to thank Cheryl, Sonia & all the Team for making their Inn, the perfect place to propose to my beautiful partner Lisa, who happily said "Yes"💑💍. All my requests were fulfilled and we were treated like Royalty from the minute we arrived on Saturday evening until we left after our lunch on Sunday evening. The whole experience... More

Me and my partner stayed at the Bull Inn en route to London and we were blown away. The room we stayed (number 5) was fantastic! The room was beautifully decorated -quirky but tasteful with what can only be described as the biggest and most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! We dine in the pub, the service was... More

Appalling service from Sonia (a manager would you believe) spoke to us disgustingly. Very rude, arrogant and aggressive. We are frequent travellers and stay in many lovely places up and down the country and we make sure we always give great reviews to those places that deserve them, and I must say almost all do. But this one is quite... More
