Excellent meal

We arrived here, without a reservation, but the staff quickly found a table for us. The pub is a lovely olde-worlde, half-timbered building and with bags of atmosphere. We didn't have to wait very long for our meal, which was excellent, very well cooked and presented. The service was good, and... read more

We have used this pub/restaurant a number of times over the past year, and this has to be our most disappointing visit and worth writing about. Sunday roast, if you choose not to have the mash, came with 2 potatoes, 2 slices of beef, 1 untrimmed, sprouting carrot and 1 small cauliflower floret. My partners gammon was more like a... More

We didn't have to wait very long for our meal, which was excellent, very well cooked and presented. The service was good, and unintrusive, and the cost was very reasonable.

Late on reviewing but we had a lovely time, a lovely meal. Great service and all for a fairly good price. We had three courses and we stuffed afterwards! The staff are always welcoming and on the ball with the service.

We had breakfast and dined every evening of our week at The Bull in the Bull's restaurant. The breakfasts are unbeatable: a buffet of fruit, yogurts, fruit juices, cereals, pastries ... plus a cooked breakfast from a very good range of choices inc full English (excellent), eggs Benedict, smoked salmon, kippers, porridge ... You won't want lunch after The Bull's... More

Had lunch with some friends. The staff were very friendly. We could have eaten in the bar but chose to eat in the restaurant. There are rooms you can use for private functions. Overall food was quite good but need to check the bill as Greene Kings automatic billing is not always correct.

We went to The Bull for a valentines meal. My husband had booked in advance and paid £60 deposit. On arrival at the restaurant we found that we were not listed for a meal. It was a bit disconcerting. We were however shown to a table. The meal was well cooked and presentable. There was no evidence of the meal... More
