Good food and friendly service

The Bull is the first, or last depending on the direction from which you are coming, hotel in the long street which is Long Melford. The bar, which serves restaurant food, is typical of an old English coaching inn and also has an outside area for use on warm days. The menu is simple but good... read more

Heard really good things about the Bull by various different people but was really disappointed. I am fairly local and this is the one place I hadn't yet tried so anyway It was for a family dinner which was lunchtime on a Wednesday, we all went for the kind of £4.99+ meals which we thought was obviously really good value!...

We waited 1.5 hours between starter and main course. We had pre paid as it was a booked only entertainment evening or we... More

Reception poor attitude, with "no restaurant tonight you can get food in bar" Many items were not available from menu ."sold out luv" Sirloin steak was tough and doubtful if a proper sirloin cut. Lasagne was meat sauce poured over some pasta. Wouldn't go again.

We popped in for a light lunchtime bite and found a really good £4.95 menu. We ordered the veggie chilli and a pudding and the gentleman behind the bar was really hospitable and friendly in putting through the order. The food was excellent. It arrived swiftly and was of a high standard considering the price. Pudding was heaven for my... More
