Don't stay at The Olde Bull for one night, stay for as many nights that you can possibly afford. We stayed Saturday night (23 June) in "Daisy" room (she's a cow!) She was everywhere all over the wall behind the bed, what a touch. How did you get a bed that size into that room, the bed was enormous. Big chandelier hanging from the ceiling, oak beams, curtains that didn't let the light in, shower head in the bathroom the size of a base drum, well nearly, good supply of teas, coffees and biscuit's, big flat screen TV, the list is endless. Bar area: Wanted to try a local lager, we were offered a small glass each to try. Could have eaten in the restaurant, settled instead for the bar menu. (it's nearer the bar!) Wife had Sea Base Fillet, followed by Pavlova (stacked). Looked delish. I went for a "T" Bone Steak, (trust me it was to die for), cooked exactly to order, followed by a cheese board, choice of several cheese's made up in the shape of a pyramid. All four sevings were faultless and presented to top London restaurant standard. Well done the chef and all kitchen staff. Will I stay again?, there are hotels nearer Newmarket racecourse, pound for pound I bet they are not as good as this one. We will return. Thank you one and all. Paul & Marian - Chafford Hundred.
