Very good weekday lunch stop.

I popped into The Bull with a colleague for lunch today (27/Feb) and found the restaurant to be fairly full - I was a little worried that service would be slow, but I found it to be quite the opposite! We were greeted and quickly seated. Drink service was fast and then our starters came out within... read more

An extremely good lunch time meal, with friendly and efficient staff. A good choice of dishes available. There was a good choice of beers and wines, with something for us all.

The food is good but the bar area isn't very inviting and needs an update. Good staff and service, the restaurant area is very nice. Food is a bit overpriced though as is the wine.

Went for a meal after Remembrance Sunday and decided on a Sunday roast option of chicken, was more like a meal of chicken and vegetables rather than a roast. Chicken seemed like a 'boil in a bag' type rather than a juicy roast and it was served with a creamy thin sauce rather than a gravy. Disappointing.

Two menus a main where I think dishes were more expensive but with greater choice and specials which was very good and reasonable at just under ten pounds for two... More

We have eaten at the Bull now on several occasions. There is always a warm welcome and a smile and the food quality has been really good and I could not find a fault, if I was looking for one. A little more knowledge about the different bitters they serve would be appreciated, but the bitter has been first rate,... More

Very disappointed that booked this place for 4.30 pm Saturday event. Several days later advised that booking could not be fulfilled despite accepting the booking and that my tastecard discount did not apply despite no restrictions on the card. Clearly a case that this venue decides at last minute to change tactics and make the most out of their prospective... More
