The Bull is a handsome 18th century building next to the village green. The dining room was partly candle lit and had a big fire in the inglenook: all very attractive. The room is simply furnished and although the wooden chairs had cushions attached, something more comfortable would have been appreciated.
The menu is short (a good sign usually) and our selections far surpassed expectations. Of particular note were the mackerel pate with an infusion of lemon, and the game pie which instead of usual pastry on top of a dish was of the free-standing variety and was served with a jug of gravy. And the chips were the best I have have had in a very long time.
There a slight mistake in the service when two of our dishes were delivered to the wrong table (but quickly retrieved). When the bill came I noticed we had not been charged for the excellent bottle of Rioja: on pointing this out I was informed that it had been deducted on account of the mis-delivery. When I insisted that this was not necessary, I had to compromise by paying for half. A very pleasing example of concern to get things right. The cost for three courses is about £25 excluding drinks.
