Apart from being a very picturesque and characterful pub, The Bull also offers accommodation. Our recent stay was excellent throughout. The room was recently refurbished to a high standard with a very comfy bed, a large bathroom with an array of complimentary unguents ,hairdryer and even an ironing board. Breakfast offers a very wide choice, in addition to the usual... More

Taken here by friends who live locally ,this place is off the beaten track but well worth finding. Great character and we all enjoyed the food from a varied menu.Good home cooked food,the steak pie was excellent.Well worth a visit.

This used to be a fabulous village inn, but over the last few years has lost the plot. Staff turnover is awful, and the arrogance of management is breath-taking. The kitchen appears to run to a formula (pre-prepared by technicians) but does not appear to have an actual Chef that could address a lot of the other negative comments appearing... More

This was our 3rd visit, we always stop on our boating trips. I love the setting, the staff but this time I couldn't find anything on the menu that took my fancy. I don't like roasts, that's just a personal thing, they did look good but I was looking forward to really nice simple home cooked food. A nice pasta,... More

This is a beautiful traditional pub in a lovely village but the food is disappointing. As a veggie I had two choices, a sandwich or a chickpea tagine. I went with the sandwich, of which the bread was nice but everything was a bit dry and boring. The meat eaters faired better, with nice pie and pork. Strangely, there are... More

I visited The Bull Inn on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. The menu looked very enticing however the food was so disappointing. I'm a vegetarian & liked the sound of a Moroccan inspired dish, however it included lamb so I asked for it to be replaced with mixed salad leaves, which they agreed to. When my lunch arrived it looked... More

Positives. Made to feel very welcoming on our arrival and allowed us to book in an hour early. Nice quality bedding although a lighter quilt would have been nice. The cooked breakfast was cooked lovely and good quality produce used . The Inn itself was full of character with nice outside seating and in a lovely area . It had... More

The Chargrilled Leg of Lamb sandwich is to die for, simply amazing. Great value for money, £8.75 for an explosion of different flavors. The atmosphere was great. They did get my wine wrong 3 times, asked for a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and they kept bringing me a glass of white wine, this happened 3 times before they informed me... More

We're used to drinking and dining here because the Bull is our local and we love it. However on this occasion we actually had to stay here having been evicted from our own home by our sons who were having a late party. We had a great room - Room 7 - which has a lovely double bed and superb... More

On a recent date night out myself and partner decided to try due recommendations of friends. The staff were lovely and food amazing. The selection was vast and they listened to some of my dietary requirements making sure I had a nice hassle free meal. really made our night special.
