We have been eaten at The Bull several times now and I can honestly say we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the service very good. The week day lunch menu is excellent value. The prices are reasonable and the garden is great for the kids.

Fairly priced if you chose from lunchtime deals menu. virtually empty. Downsides: the table was sticky and I mean it had only ever seen cleaners which caused a build up of residue. hot vinegar...

Phoned at 14:05 to see if they were still serving lunch. The lady was very polite and helpful and told us she would let the chef know we were coming and then directed us in from the main road. Plenty of car parking, lovely beer garden with kids play area too, clean and bright inside. Servings were plentiful and service... More

We have eaten here on a number if occasions, even on Xmas day. The food has been excellent, fresh, local and very tasty. We have at times tried to eat here without booking and been turned away. There is a large beer garden but it is encouraged you eat in the restaurant. Well worth the visit

Very good pub with HUGE garden and play park for the kids. Although I did have a go on the monkey bars.. Food is exceptional for a pub/ restaurant with all fresh ingredients, good, professional chef and a knowledgeable staff. Great wine selection and well kept beers.

We have been visiting The Bull for years. Its walking distance and its the place to go for a good steak. It is never over full which does mean that it can be lacking in atmosphere. Our last visit was on a Saturday evening. The restaurant could not have been more than half full. The menu never seems to change... More
