Booked for two nights to enjoy an abba tribute band without the hassle of driving back to Norwich, however, after the band had finished we retired to our room only to find that the bedding was duck down and my wife had a serious allergic reaction,,,,,,,I then had a reaction to the unsympathetic member of staff who insisted I pay...

My partner stayed here with 3 of his collegues for 4 nights and all of them raved about how great the place was! Rooms comfortable and stylish, food highly recommended. Ill definately be booking them back in here next time they are working in the area.

This old pub does great food and has the most funky accommodation offering bed and breakfast. Each room has a theme and is so wacky it is fun. It's situated in a small pretty village. The pub is very clean and well managed. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's a great place to stop over for a night or... More

Just spent two nights at the Bull Inn with friends. I was slightly anxious on arrival as the inn is bang on a very busy dual carriageway and does look a little tired from the outside. However, you couldn't hear the traffic inside and the interior was better decorated. The lady on reception was a little humourless. Our friends were... More

Room was nice but very small. Food was fantastic and staff in bar were lovely. However,the lady on reception was the rudest person we have ever dealt with whilst staying in a b&b/hotel. At one stage she actually told my husband to loose the attitude when quite clearly she was the one with the attitude. Unfortunately we won't be back... More

The Bull Inn is a wonderful small hotel, with amazingly themed rooms that are very clean and well decorated, very quiet good nights sleep, breakfast was good quality, served on a hot plate (nice) and locally sourced. Staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was good. Slightly more expensive than average for that area but in my opinion worth it... More

Had a nice lunch so decided to book for a weekend stay. However, they can't offer (or can't be bothered) vegetarian sausages for breakfast. Is that just lazy? These days with such choices available most quality hotels, spouting about how good their food is, cater for us minorities without hesitation. Not here though. Never mind, just staying elsewhere!

Visited The Bull Inn after reading Trip Advisor, my husband is very hard to please when it comes to finding the right place to have a good steak. We are pleased to say the fillet steak with garlic butter was outstanding. Would recommend this place based on quality of food ,staff were attentive & not intrusive.A little bit expensive however...

Stayed in coach house room with my young family, it was pleasantly decorated but nothing of the wow factor , the room was draughty and cold even with heater on full, hand soap could be provided. It's not a very child friendly hotel BUT they did accommodate me and my brood and even let us eat in the pub area... More

Arrived here after a fairly successful days racing to find the place a little underwhelming. Our room which was £115 for the night did not include breakfast which we thought was a tad expensive so our room had better be good.? No not really, the "gold room" which may I remind you was £115. Was basically a bog standard hotel... More
