Called in here on the off chance as passing one Sunday as we had heard good thing. We were not disappointed and had a great roast dinner which was enjoyed by all. The landlord served us, letting us in slightly early (we were a few minutes before official opening time) and was very friendly.

I had an evening meal at the Bull last week. Service was very good as was the food. My favourite part was the Salted Caramel Cheesecake it was divine. Tuna salad was tasty and very colourful. Downside was the Tuna was slightly overcooked. Would perhaps try it again but mention it next time.

I had an early evening meal here during a stay at the Travelodge which is a 10 minute walk away. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the pub / restaurant is very nicely decorated, but the food is a bit of let down.

We are very sorry to hear that your experience at The Bull on this occasion was not a positive one. This certainly does not reflect our normal high standards and positive feedback on service and food quality that we receive. In the local area we feel that we are competitively priced on our food and we receive consistently good feedback. More
