Welcome to The Bull, a Grade II-listed coaching inn, gloriously situated on the Market Square in Fairford, a picture-perfect market town in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds. The Bull now offers both restaurant and private dining spaces and a traditional pub bar, with open fires, and serving local craft beers, spirits and great wines. There’s also a traditional, vaulted barn, The Bull Room, for weddings and parties for up to 50 guests. BAFTA nominated set designer, Corina Burrough and interior designer Jo Titchener, worked to create The Bull’s beautifully refurbished interiors throughout, including its 21 individually furnished, en-suite bedrooms. The Bull also has private fishing rights to a 1.25-mile stretch of the River Coln with excellent fishing for grayling and trout, making it a popular base for fly-fishing trips. Rods cost from £50pp a day for up to five people.

Situated in the heart of the pretty town of Fairford, The Bull Hotel is ideally placed to explore the Cotswolds. We stayed for four nights in one of the suites. The rooms were clean and comfortable, overlooking the pretty town square. On our first evening we had a delicious meal. We also enjoyed a tasty breakfast each morning, which set us up for a day of exploring. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming. It was lovely to come back to the hotel at the end of each day, have a drink and watch the world go by.

So lunch at the Bull on the first day we could eat in! Just as well because it tipped it down outside! Nice friendly staff. Great beer ( Gold). Non alco is San Miguel. Good food - some teething issues but these will iron out. Thanks and best wishes for the new normal !

We spent a lovely night in December at The Bull Hotel. Our room was very spacious with a huge comfortable bed, in fact we had the biggest bathroom I've ever had in a hotel!! We enjoyed some really delicious food in the restaurant (can totally recommend the Chateaubriand!) and the staff who attended were all very friendly. We felt very safe with regard to Covid too. The following morning we had a lovely riverside walk from the hotel. We would not hesitate to stay again when we return to the area, hopefully in the not too distant future.
