Very old village pub full of atmosphere. I had the lamb lump in beetroot sauce on our last visit and it was really tender and tasty. Great foot and excellent service.

Visited The Bull early Saturday evening. Our waiter was surly and bored throughout. We ordered fish and chips, which was ok and salmon, to be told they had none so a chicken dish was chosen which was lukewarm at best. We ordered crumble of the day - apple we were told. After 10 minutes the waiter informed us they had... More

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

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
