Eaten here a couple of times, both with family. Friendly service, home cooked and well presented food. Possibly one of the best burgers we have ever had! Nice roast on a Sunday, booking advisable for this as they get quite busy. Only criticism would be that we were not offered more drinks at the table whilst eating, otherwise spot on... More

My family treated me to a meal for my 60th birthday there were around 13 of us. The weather was good so the children could play in the garden area while we could watch them. The service was excellent and all the staff were helpful and very friendly. My husband and I ordered the roast beef which unfortunately we found... More

There were several members of the family staying at The Bull for a couple of nights for a family funeral service in the village. This B&B pub/restaurant is in a beautiful village setting and has a regular clientele of all social types as well as ramblers and others. The bar serves a variety of ales and ciders as well as...

I booked a room here as we were meeting family for dinner and it was convenient to be able to leave the car and enjoy a nice bottle of wine, the pub itself is lovely, it is in a lovely village setting, it is tastefully decorated as expected for a country inn. The staff were very welcoming and the bar... More

Just decided to go for a pub meal - waited ages to be served despite only 5 people in the bar. Waited ages to order food and then placed an order and then continued to wait! Table was filthy and other table littered with glasses. What a shame that this pub has gone down hill, it could be a gold... More

It is very easy to come along and put a place down especially when you read some of the other 'reviews' that appear with over exaggeration and false information. We are very aware who has written this review - and your behaviour towards the staff in this establishment was disgusting. You did not wait ages to be served, you came... More

Rooms were full of old cobwebs, clearly been there for some time. Too hot as towel rail heated entire room. Window latch was broken and toilet plumbing could wake the dead Staff while polite could do with some service training and show a welcome. Would not stay again, hate to say even the soElle's travelodge is better than this

We were a party of twelve for a family lunch. The food was lovely, the wine good, the staff very friendly but very young and inexperienced. I have to say they tried their best. There ends the praise, the toilets in the main building were tatty and grubby. Four of us stayed in the pubs accommodation.....we had two rooms which... More

Service was a bit slow had to go looking for someone to... More
