After driving round the countryside looking for somewhere to have lunch on a Monday afternoon we finally settled on The Bull...what a massive mistake!!!! The pub is extremely understaffed and this was made clear by the fact that almost every table in the garden was full of empty glasses and plates! The menu looked good though so we decided to... More

We have 3meat roast which I must say was stunning! We also saw other peoples dinners and will definatly be going back. Interior was lovely, very clean.... More

My husband & myself regularly had meals here before our children were born but had not been for a couple of years so when my sister kindly offered to have the children we thought we'd go back. We went last night at about 7.30 & noted that the decor had changed since last time, still very nice. We sat in... More

We called in here at about 16:00 for dinner on Sun 17/08 with our Brother in law who lives nearby. The pub was fairly busy but not packed. We had to wait for a table we were told that there would be one cleared in about ten minutes. After waiting for over half an hour we noticed that customers who... More

Went for Sunday lunch with my husband. I had the slow cooked lamb and he had the slow roasted pork belly. On arrival the food looked promising with a big Yorkshire pudding on top. It wasn't till my husband lifted the Yorkshire he realised that it was hiding the fact that there was hardly any pork. The food was nice... More

I pop in quite regularly for a bite to eat or a coffee with friends. It very much depends on when you go and whether or not there is enough staff working. More often than not there are not enough members of staff to manage this pub/restaurant to reduce the waiting times for drinks and food for customers. Staff are... More

Firstly this is not aimed at the staff who were all very helpful. We did not have to wait any time at all to be shown to our table. We were asked what drinks we wanted and given menus to see what food we would choose whilst waiting for our drinks which did not take long to arrive. 3of our... More

I was amongst a party of about 50-60 people for a sit down meal at a wedding reception on a Saturday afternoon. Although the food was pre-ordered (something that I don't normally like doing, but fully understand the reasons behind it), it came out of the kitchen in a very professional way. As well as our food arriving, the kitchen... More
