We stayed at The Bull, on one extremely wet night in April. On entering the reception area it feels cosy and welcoming. We could smell the wood burner in the bar area. The front of the hotel is olde worldy, whilst the rear has modern parts including a conservatory adding a light aspect to it, which must be lovely on... More

When I booked lunch for 13 people I explained we were elderly and needed tables in a quiet area. I was told that we would be seated in the Garden Room, but when we arrived the tables were in the main restaurant. Jazz was playing and therefore it was difficult for my members to converse. The food and the service... More

Dear Janet349, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at our restaurant.

Considering the high price you pay for a room here, it's disappointing how small the rooms are. £120 paid for one night with breakfast, and the Etap budget down the road for £32 has rooms that are bigger! Bed was very comfortable and the decor average, but quite dated. I know this hotel are renovating so look forward to seeing... More

Stayed here for the FA Cup Semi Final. Got to the hotel, reception staff seemed very disinterested. We were asked to fill out our checking in forms, and when we handed them back, the lady on reception decided now would be a perfect time to answer the phone. Now don't get me wrong, I'm sure this hotel makes a bomb... More

Stayed here in May 2011 for a family wedding. The wedding reception was held here. Lovely hotel with a lovely garden in the back, with out own private area off the function suite. The rooms were great and reasonably priced. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice. The drinks were way overpriced though. £4.75 for a half of cider... More

I stayed here over two nights with work and was very impressed with the ambience and staff professionalism. There is ample parking, a choice of typical English pub and more modern hotel bar and tasty wide selection at breakfast. There is no gym but apart from that it ticked all the boxes. No sky sports in the room either -... More

A one night stop over to celebrate a friends' 60th birthday. Very attentive staff who worked hard to ensure we had an enjoyable experience. Excellent meal, delicious food.
