We knowthat not everyone wants the same thing from a pub. You might want a pint of local real ale at the bar ... A bottle of wine and a grazing board on the sofas ... A meal in the dining room ... A really good coffee and a read of the paper ... Take your pick. If real ale is your thing, look no further. We offer our own Brewshed Best Bitter and Pale Ale plus a couple of guest ales. We're passionate about wine and have created an award winning list Which offers a selection of old favorites combined with some more unusual and quirky wines. The common theme is did we believe They Are all well made wines offering good value for money. Every single one of our wines are available by the glass (except some champagnes). On the food side, the emphasis is on good quality, seasonal produce and, wherever Possible, we source it locally. We love Sunday lunch and offer a great roast - bring the family or meet up with friends and catch up on your way. We're open from noon until late. So if you're in need of a locally roasted coffee in the afternoon, you know where to come. Free wi-fi is available Throughout the pub. What about the kids? Children are welcome in the bar before 6pm and 8pm in the restaurant but evenings are just for the grown ups. Our kids menu is Important to us. It is Aimed at children under 8 and each dish is freshly prepared. You can therefore order a roast pork or beef kids on Sundays. Where Possible, we are very happy to prepare smaller Portions from our main menu. Baby changing facilities, high chairs, activity sheets and crayons are available.

Lured back to the One Bull by an overdue update on the wine choices, we found a quality of food that reminded us of the good old days of the Angel Hotel round the corner. We hadn't booked for a midweek evening, and were surprised to find the restaurant fully booked. However, the friendly barman offered to feed us in... More

Was persuaded to try the One Bull by my adult Son for his birthday last week. I could not have been more surprised having not been back there for over 2 years when a bad experience put us all off. All of our food was very good this time, expertly cooked and very flavoursome. A good measure I believe is... More

Had a casual Saturday lunch with friends at the One Bull. Warm and friendly welcome and efficient service from the staff. The lunch menu as a decent range, including main meals and sandwiches. I had a starter with two sides - excellent mackerel, great chips and veg. Another of the party enjoyed the pork and chorizo burger. The fish and... More

Staff are always warm and welcoming. Seated straight away, offered complimentary water and a drink order was taken soon after being seated. Had starters and mains and that filled us up. Food came swiftly and was very tasty. Highly recommend the short rib & fillet of beef! Staff were always friendly, happy and attentive without being overbearing and pushy. Will... More

After reading the other positive reviews, I had to go try this place for myself. It was amazing! I took my family for a Sunday roast, and everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend the roast beef. It came with carrots and onions, steamed greens, creamed cauliflower, and a Yorkshire pudding. They have a nice selection of wines and beers.... More
