I took my parents for lunch - first visit, based on online reviews, which seemed good. The reviews were fully justified: an interesting and varied menu (though steaks seem expensive in that part of the world!) and the food was tasty, well-cooked and well-presented. Also enjoyed a couple of pints of Smugglers Best bitter from Oliver's Real Ale Brewery in... More

We were booked into The Bull Inn by a friend as we were attending a wedding in the area. Initially I was worried as had read a couple of negative reviews about this place but I couldn't have been more pleased that they were wrong. The rooms are lovely and clean, the staff incredibly helpful and the area is beautiful.... More

Again we had a very good lunch here today!! As usual staff were very friendly and attentive....and food, although it took a little while, was very tasty. We took advantage of the "old codgers" menu, which is very generous portions, and in no way inferior to the main menu.

7/06/2015 my family and I stopped off here for some refreshments half way around Bewlwater park during a 13 mile charity sponsored walk. At first it seemed like a lovely place in an ideal location for us halfway through the trip. We attempt to order our refreshments, a few of us wanted a cup of tea, the rest were happy... More

After deciding to ride around Bewl Water and not quite realising just how far that would be, we were delighted to stop at the Bull Inn to get our breath back. We also decided that as we were having a meal at home we would share a burger and Chips. The portion sizes were great! We saw a couple of... More

Turned up on the off chance on a recent Bank Holiday Monday for lunch. Told that the food was a 20 minute wait, which transpired to be 40 minutes. Fobbed off twice. Ring told food was 'just coming' despite no check made with kitchen. Simple ploughmans plus fish and chips (not the freshest fish) was not great but not bad... More

This pub is the sort of place you could visit and settle in for the evening without realising! Staff are friendly and food is great. They keep the Harveys beautifully. Good for families, friends or couples.

Came here with my family on my birthday. The service was friendly, fun and attentive, they really couldn't do enough. We went on bank holiday Monday, and my partner and dad took advantage of the all you can eat mussels and ribs for £12.50 each - and it really was all they could eat, even ended up wrapping some ribs...
