We had the lovely warm function room for 16 of us and the food certainly did not disappoint. The Christmas menu was excellent with plenty of choice and everyone enjoyed their meal. Christine and James and their lovely friendly staff ensured that everything was right on the night, with us all sitting round one table. We had a perfect evening... More

My Husband and I ate in the White Bull recently. We were not disappointed. We went in first to check the menu as I am Vegetarian. We were greeted by Paul who was very pleasant and quickly got us a menu to have a look over. The menu has a lot of variety and there are a few Vegetarian options.... More

We live literally around the corner from the pub - it is our local and has been shut for months.

I had the staple "small" fish and chips - to test... More

Thought we`d try it out having heard of it`s re-opening as we used to visit often in the "old days". It was very quiet but this can be expected on a wet Monday lunchtime. We were not disappointed with the food or service, in fact both were very good. Management & staff very efficient & friendly. We shall definitely be... More

We went for a family meal today and we thought we should try it since it has recently reopened. food was excellent, well presented, very tasty and a very reasonable price. child's portions were virtually the same size as the adults. We will definitely be back!
