Visited on a Saturday night (4 of us). Restaurant nice and chairs comfy which is a bonus these days. There the good bits end! We sat down at 1915 and still had not been offered anything further to drink or had anyone approach us to take our order by 2015!!! We had to request someone to come over. We ordered... More

The people running this pub do as little as possible to make your visit pleasurable and only care about profit. This view is based on numerous visits over multiple years. The owners/managers take advatage of the pubs excellent postion in the village and the fact it's the only one with a large garden. They know this will bring people in... More

Waited ages for starter, asked to speak to manager who was too busy working in the kitchen as short staffed yet again! Asked for steak medium rate which came out like charcoal, sent back and next one came out raw! Apparently it was the manager who cooked it. If you can't even cook a steak get out of the kitchen....

Sunday lunch with the family & starter came quickly but was luke warm, main course took another hour & 10 mins to come & the pub was not that busy. Staff seem not that concerned. We used to come here years ago but it's not as good as it was, shame!

We all had the trio of roasts, great idea as you got a sample of all three on offer. This came with Yorkshire puddings, roast... More

The Bull is our local. The problem is, as the reviews suggest, you can't be certain whether the food will be good or the service. Sometimes both are great, although my last burger was seriously overcooked. The serving staff are very good if they have time. Unfortunately, I don't think the pub employs enough staff so if it gets busy... More
