Just returned from a family break and stopped in to the bull inn for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the large portions and tasty food at a really reasonable price

I have just stopped at The Bull for lunch, and I have to say that average sums it up. The place was quiet for a lunch time, so at least it was easy to get a table. My colleague and I both ordered the Bentley Steak Burger (we are keen to see if there is a burger out there that... More

We had dinner here mid September and have been previously but not for a while. The positives would be really generous portions of food, great tasting food, ample parking outside and a really friendly lady serving us. If anything we felt a bit sorry for her because she had to apologise many times for the food taking so long and... More

The food was average at best, the service was lacklustre, the ambience was non existent and all in all I would say they need to get their act together...it has a great location and it deserves to be managed by pros

Super friendly staff - short haired blonde lady behind the bar was so welcoming. The menu isn't huge but I had the Cajun chicken burger and it's easily the best burger I've ever had in my life! Waited about 20 minutes which was good, portion sizes are huge for what you pay, excellent value for money, cute interior, all in... More

Very friendly staff and the new menu has much more of a variety than under the previous owner. Food is well prepared, good portion size and well priced. Definitely going back again

Lovely food. Good sound pub grub, and really lovely staff. Good service. But the noise from the very busy main road made it very unpleasant to sit outside on a summers night. Lots of nasty midges under the trees too. Outdoors is a bit scrubby really....abandoned and broken items of garden furniture are lying around. Maybe it's a lovely winter... More
