I visited the Bull with my wife and 2 friends, for the first time, in November 2012. It was very busy, but we were greeted warmly, and shown to our table. Regrettably, the table was by the second (rear) entrance - and we experienced regular icy blasts from the outside, by other patrons and staff making repeated use of it. The food was very good, the staff were attentive, courteous, and despite how busy they were, very efficient. The menu was varied, and there was something on it for all tastes. My rating for this restaurant would have been higher but for some of the rather negative aspects which we experienced. The tables were very close together, and due to the numbers of patrons, the noise made normal conversation almost impossible. At most tables, the persons on the outside of the table were regularly jostled by people pushing past. In the difficult financial situations which most businesses face these days, it was good to see that the Bull was indeed so popular. Nevertheless, I think that for the benefit of its patrons, the removal of perhaps three tables would be beneficial for their comfort - reducing noise, and reducing the interference of those sitting eating. Making the second entrance into an Emergency Exit only, would also be very beneficial for those seated nearby. I think that the owner seems to be undecided as to whether he wants a Pub, or a restaurant - and is falling somewhere midway between. This is a pity, as in many ways it is a well run hostelry, with excellent staff and very good food, excellently presented at a very reasonable price. The necessary physical changes I have recommended, would in my opinion, make all the difference.
