Fabulous food - the beef fillet is to die for despite being a bit pricey (well worth splashing out though). The service was great and we were treated like special guests. Beautiful building in a wonderful setting. Definitely will be back and might even stay :-)

The White Bull never fails with excellent food from a varied menu, prompt service and a great environment. We have visited several times for lunch and evening meals since the Inn was sympathetically refurbished: the White Bull offers amazing fine dining and a warm welcome. Chef Simon offers a superb menu. We love the place and are fast becoming regular... More

We were booked into the Stirk house down the road on the last night of a driving holiday and were disappointed with what the hotel had to offer so decided to look in the village. This turned out to be a really good call as we came upon this gem of a place. Although we had not booked and despite... More

Having chosen the White Bull only after walking into another local put to find the main menu not on, and only a choice of about 6 mains, no starters and generally disappointing service we were not disappointe with our second choice. Prices which reflected the quality of the food. Posh sausage roll is a must, truly scrumptious comfort food. Mains... More

We perbooked a table of 10 for a birthday and wanted to try here after being recently refurbished. Smallish car park at the rear which leads into a very well refurbished restaurant. That said the layout is a little strange and could have done with a rethink during the construction process. When you enter from the entrance via the main... More

Ate here on Saturday 25th April. Arrived at 7pm having previously booked a table. Stood at the bar for at least 2mins without being acknowledged despite the fact that the place wasn't busy and there were three staff behind the bar including the "front of house" manager who quite frankly requires a personality transplant, indeed hospitality is not the career...

Thank you for reviewing the White Bull, however I would like to respond. On your arrival at the bar at 18-58-49 you waited 31 seconds before the Manager acknowledged you and asked with a smile what you would like, your drink was on the bar 1 minute and 7 seconds from walking in, now that's what I call service.

felt I had to redress the balance of some earlier reviews of this place. We visited today, party of 4 and had an excellent lunch, friendly welcome and beautiful décor in the dining area. Nothing negative at all. Thankyou

I feel compelled to write after reading reviews that were negative. We first ate here on aa dreary Sunday afternoon in February and wow did it make us smile. Very well presented place.
