Really tasty food with plenty of choices and something for all palates. If you are a red wine drinker then try the Malbec; very smooth and served at just the right temperature.

Lovely venue! Busy but lots of staff to cater! We had a nice seat by the window to see all the festivities of the Bury Christmas Market. Wonderful hot chocolate!

We last visited the One Bull over 20 years ago, but having heard about its current reputation for food we decided to visit during a recent trip to BSE. What a fantastic restaurant. Staff very friendly and the food was excellent. Would have no hesitation in recommending the One Bull for a meal.

Had a very nice meal here in the week with friends. We had a lovely gin cocktail to start. The place was full with a very good atmosphere for early in the week. Our waitress was helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and good value. I would definitely recommend the One Bull

We visited this pub restaurant because of the trip advisor ratings. Internally, it's a very attractive place that someone has put a lot of thought and effort into. Cleverly, there are a number of distinctly different areas within the pub ranging from traditional bar room feel, through well lit atrium area to warmly lit restaurant zone; everyone's sure to find...

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch with the family at this delightful establishment. The food was very good - well cooked, beautifully presented and very tasty. Service was good too - we were well looked after with all needs catered for - and the restaurant had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. All in all - very good value.

Dropped in here for lunch today with another couple from Kent. The service was impeccable, friendly, attentive and a nice smile. Two of our party took advantage of the 'Soup and Sandwich deal, whilst I ordered a snack, my male colleague a sandwich. Despite being just a lunch, the presentation was excellent as was the quality and value for money.

We knowthat not everyone wants the same thing from a pub. You might want a pint of local real ale at the bar ... A bottle of wine and a grazing board on the sofas ... A meal in the dining room ... A really good coffee and a read of the paper ... Take your pick. If real ale is your thing, look no further. We offer our own Brewshed Best Bitter and Pale Ale plus a couple of guest ales. We're passionate about wine and have created an award winning list Which offers a selection of old favorites combined with some more unusual and quirky wines. The common theme is did we believe They Are all well made wines offering good value for money. Every single one of our wines are available by the glass (except some champagnes). On the food side, the emphasis is on good quality, seasonal produce and, wherever Possible, we source it locally. We love Sunday lunch and offer a great roast - bring the family or meet up with friends and catch up on your way. We're open from noon until late. So if you're in need of a locally roasted coffee in the afternoon, you know where to come. Free wi-fi is available Throughout the pub. What about the kids? Children are welcome in the bar before 6pm and 8pm in the restaurant but evenings are just for the grown ups. Our kids menu is Important to us. It is Aimed at children under 8 and each dish is freshly prepared. You can therefore order a roast pork or beef kids on Sundays. Where Possible, we are very happy to prepare smaller Portions from our main menu. Baby changing facilities, high chairs, activity sheets and crayons are available.
