Stopped here for a drink & bar snack - wished we had gone elsewhere to be honest. My wife ordered a lime & soda to be told there was no lime cordial !!!!! A pity no one could have been bothered to go down to the local supermarket - which definately stocked it. But that was really the whole attitude... More

Ever outside table has an ashtray and the tables were covered in ash. I thought they needed to provide a separate area for smokers to kill themselves. Not sure why they have priority over non smokers but we won't be going back!

This is a fabulous place steeped in history. The welcome is warm and service prompt. When i visited last summer the food was good but sadly the last two visits have been disappointing. Probably try elsewhere next time Melford has lots of choice

Dropped into the Bull for a drink today. No sooner had sat down in the outside courtyard than one of the employees started hosing down the courtyard within feet of us. This at lunchtime (12.15) Complained to the receptionist who said she was the duty manager!! She said jobs had to be done to which I replied that it might... More

Fantastic food. I love this place. It's such a lovely break for my partner and I from our busy London lives. It is like easing on comfortable slippers. Perfect.

It was a straight forward chain pub menu with run of the mill food. However my friends chicken wings seemed to take an eternity to be cooked even though the restaurant was quiet

have just got back from a meal here and cannot find polite words to express my disgust at the appalling food and terrible service! I ordered the pork belly with NO PEAS (I hate them they are the devils work!) and what do you think my plate was loaded with? you guessed it disgusting overcooked straight from the freezer pea...

Ate in a few pubs in Long Melford on a recent visit and was a little disappointed with this place. Fantastic building but inside really needs a smarten up. Food was OK, I don't normally detail what I ate but I had chicken wings as a starter and for £5 got 3 of the meanest chicken wings I have ever... More

We recently visited Long Melford and were looking for somewhere to have lunch. The Bull looked somewhere nice to have lunch. On entering the hotel and restaurant we were not sure how to get to the restaurant and there appeared to be a function in one of the rooms. We walked towards the reception and the receptionist looked at us... More

We got married here a number of years ago so was really looking forward to visiting. Service was terrible from very disinterested staff, food straight from a microwave, menu was typical Greene King frozen food and what really annoyed us was they offered a deal on their blackboard outside which they did not do on the day of our visit...
