Description: The Bull Inn, Wimborne St Giles, has been transformed from what was a very tired looking village pub near the Cranborne chase in to what is now a comfortable, light, yet firmly rural destination. The menu offers delicious modern British cooking at its best, prepared by our Chef, Ian Craddock. From dishes such as home cooked venison pies to salt baked Bream, there is something for everyone using local ingredients in the daily changing menu. The wine list offers an array of wines by the glass, along with a changing bin end list offering superb value Chateaux & Domaines from France. We have three real ale pumps on hand to quench the thirst, with ales from local brewers.

We visited the Bull for Sunday lunch. Having not been there for a while, didn't know what to expect. The food was superb, lovely choice, beautifully presented and well cooked. The staff could not have been more welcome or friendly. I would strongly recommend a visit - or more than one!

We have just had 2 nights at The Bull Inn as we were attending a wedding in a nearby village.

The Bull is on the edge of Wimborne St Giles which is charming.

The hotel is nicely decorated & comfortable.

The staff are great - Neil (the manager) was so welcoming & helpful & made us sandwiches because we arrived after the kitchen was closed.

The chef went beyond the call of duty & put his satnav in our car & programmed it so we could get to the wedding & reception & back without getting lost - it was in a village about 30mins away. It saved us as we would have got lost coming back at night.

The food in the pub is very good - the breakfast was great. We had a great cote de rhone by the glass.

We recommend it.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here. It is a very welcoming place, with helpful and friendly staff. The highlight was the food which is very fresh, good quality and reasonably priced. The village is very pretty and the view from our room was great. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend break.

A log fire is a welcome sight in any pub, warm and cosy.
The restaurant is one large room with a bar at one corner, and the tables are well spaced.
Food and service is excellent, with a good choice for Vegetarians.

Really enjoyable, good food that is inventive but not over the top, still concentrates on flavour above all!
