We visited The Bull one very cold February day and were greeted by the warmth of a real fire. Excellent choice of menu, every price available, so you could spend exactly what you liked. The service was good and so was the food. This was not our first visit and we will certainly be returning soon.

This was our third visit to the Bull within three months and we have a wonderful experience on every occasion. Although midweek and not very busy in the pub we had made a booking, just in case. We were welcomed by staff and given a choice of tables. The staff were polite, attentive and allowed us our own privacy whilst... More

I visited this pub for a good value Sunday lunch with my wife, children and parents. We have been on a couple of occasions and I have previously given a generous rating on TA. Unfortunately on this visit we were told that the pub was fully booked(we had not made a reservation). There were a couple of tables free within... More

For a semi country pub, the Bull is superb. This, to me anyway, is what a good old traditional pub should be like. With the Bull it delivers in all sorts of ways, plus it has a few modern additions. It has it's own car park adjacent to the pub. If that is full, then there is a public car... More

We went to the Bull for lunch on our way home to Yorkshire. It's a lovely 15th century building, with a large outdoor area and a beautiful open fireplace. The menu was typical pub food, the portions generous and the waitress (Julie?) very helpful and pleasant. A very nice surprise was the local ale on offer. Overall, I would be... More

Visited to end our New Years Day, phoned in advance and was told to just walk in as a reservation was not necessary. When we got there it wasn't too busy so we (me and the Wife) were quite surprised how long it took for the food to arrive. 30 Mins after taking our order our starters eventually arrived, which...
