The Bull serves great food, good beer all with a smile at very competitive prices. We have eaten there many times both at lunch (great lunch menu for two under a tenner) and in the evening. Plenty of car parking and a garden at the rear if you want to sit in the sun (anybody seen any sun??). For... read more

It was a lovely day so we decided to go for a drink in the pub garden with my daughter and son-in law to celebrate my daughters birthday. We decided around 6.45pm that we would like to have a meal in the garden. I knew that they were doing a special deal, but wasn't sure if it included bar food.... More

Spent a wonderful evening in the Bull, staff were very friendly, plenty of choice on the menu, and the meals were very tasty, the art work in the ladies toilets were a very nice distraction!!!! Would certainly go back!!

Took my mum for lunch on a groupon deal and it was excellent. Mum had piri piri chicken, and they swapped the chips, for new potatoes and corn on the cob for salad and I had Cajun Salmon Fillet with potatas bravas. The portions were more than ample and it was served piping hot. The waitress was friendly and service... More

Date night with the wife and another great meal out at the Bull with excellent service. The mushroom starter was very tasty followed by a lovely home made cheese and bacon burger, simple food made great.
