Reserved a table here for Saturday evening based on TA reviews. Plenty of parking and the pub is set in nice village location. Atmosphere reminiscent of a real local's place with lots of drinkers but not many eating in the restaurant area. Food quality and...More

I really like the Bull as it's a very traditional building with an interesting layout; there's always something interesting to see around the next corner. We booked a table for Sunday lunch and I was surprised to find on arrival at 1.00 pm that we...More

Great rural location, friendly staff, good food and fantastic SECURE internet connection. It is interesting that the more pretentious an establishment becomes, the less concern is given to internet security! At The Bull, I was able to do internet banking, share trading and other things...More

The pub was refurbished a few tears ago now and is a vast improvement. The food is good and there’s a good atmosphere when it gets full. We’ve always had a bit of a wait for our lunch, despite booking ahead, but good when it...More

This is a thriving village pub. I haven't eaten here for a while, but come for quiz night on a Monday, which is always well attended, and taken quite seriously. Good range of drinks and the coffee is excellent.

The Bull Inn is a family run village pub on the outskirts of Rugby, close to the M1/M6 & A14. We pride ourselves on our freshly cooked pub food menu, which includes our own beer battered fish & chips, steaks, hand made burgers and the scrummiest of homemade desserts. We have a children's menu which uses all the same fresh ingredients that we use on our main menu costing £6 and includes a scoop of ice cream for dessert. We sell cask ales and good quality wines which can be enjoyed in a relaxing and friendly environment. During the winter months we have a real log fire to settle next to and enjoy anything from a quick lunch break to a full evening of drinking, dining and entertainment. We run a weekly pub quiz on a Monday night and play host to a whole range of live bands/acts throughout the year. On a Sunday we cook a hearty roast lunch for just £11 (£6.50 for children). Midweek we have a smaller meal option with some of our favourite dishes starting from just £6.50
