2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Have been many times in the past and had very good meals. On this occasion 19 July only two steaks on the menu no rump or sirloin or mixed grill. Also the french fries resembled chip sticks that you buy in the supermarket from the crisp selection. Most disappointed with my evening visit and will think twice about returning.

On previous occasions when we have visited the Pub, which I must admit has not been for some time, we always found the food to be lovely. However this was not the case when we visited on 3rd July. There was 10 of us and we sat in the garden. The majority of us had roast dinner. All of us... More

we used to eat here a lot and found it a bit hit and miss. We returned a few weeks ago and love the new decor and the food was good. We came again yesterday evening after looking at the menu on the website and tempted by the 'summer specials' . We chose to eat in the garden as it... More

Since the start of the Summer menu, we have found that there are always several meals "off" the menu. Hopefully whoever orders the food will have sorted this out. The excuse is always that they have been very busy and these are popular dishes with the customers! I am pleased to read The Bull has an on the door score... More

I ordered a medium Rib Eye which came out well done, i sent it back and the next one was cooked ok but was just a plate of gristle. The kids had lemonade to drink which was basically soda water so we sent them back. No-one ever asked if our meal was ok at any time during our meal. Not... More

We used to find The Bull more miss than hit- the food and service were often disappointing. Now it is pretty good for a chain pub, so much improvement. The staff and pleasant and friendly and the menu and decor has been updated. We've eaten here three times in the last couple of months and before that as many times... More

I ordered a Butternut Risotto with Rocket as a Vegetarian Option. I paid just under £10.00. I was given a very small portion with 6 small chunks of butternut, 4 halves of cherry tomatoes and 3 bits of cashew nuts. There was no rocket, but watercress and lambs tongue leaves. I was not told that there was no rocket until... More

This was a last minute decision to pop out for a midweek meal at a pub / restaurant that we have been promising ourselves to visit for some time. Although it is linked to a chain this is a very old pub with a very traditional feel. The menu is simple but varied and service was very good with the... More

It's been a while since I have been to this pub. In the past my visits have been mixed with both good and bad. Today was a good day! I really liked the menu with lots to choose from. We had mains and puddings. I had the pork belly which was very nice. Other food eaten included the fish pie,... More
