I booked the White Bull online as I fancied a nice village pub atmosphere. I was breaking a long journey from Aberdeen to Somerset. I was pretty upset to find the pub shut when I arrived, the excuse given that the staff needed a night off as they had worked the bank holiday the day before. I was received Ok and shown to my room in a separate block at the back. So no nice beer, and no pub food, in fact I was the only person there that night, no staff or anything. The harassed lady who met me and let me in suggested the local Italian . Which I did go to. It. It was excellent in fact, and good value. The room was Ok, although the ensuite was very basic and pokey, and I could not get any hot water to shave. The electric shower was just OK. There was no reception on the TV. Breakfast next morning was good, although I did not appreciate the cheap spread and packet jam. There was no choice or continental option though.
Overall this place was rather average and not worth the money, and I thought it was disgraceful they should accept bookings when the place was not even open. The evening was saved by the Italian restaurant.
