We booked in for a Monday night. Booked a Superior room at a very reasonable rate. Opened the door (room 7) to find a split level room with oak beams, a two seater settee where we could sit to watch the large TV. To the right as you go in, you go down one step to the large bed. The...

I photographed a wedding in April. I have never been to The Bull but heard great reviews. The venue was lovely and the rooms are big and look comfortable. The food was really good! Would defiantly go back for food and perhaps try the hotel!

We returned for our annual holiday to find that at last the decor had been spruced up . What a difference and much better workmanship than the normal Greene King job. As usual Gary and his team went out of their way to make sure all was well. Normal problem, staff under pressure because of the way Greene King designates...

Never stayed at The Bull before but booked it due to a family occasion in a nearby village. Had an evening meal and breakfast the following morning which were both good. The accommodation was average but ok for what we had paid and probably about what I expected for the price. All the staff were very friendly and very helpful...

I was part of a large group having lunch today which we all had pre-ordered. The staff ran out of one starter dish so that a member of the party had to wait whilst the "Chef" cook some more. One of the main courses ran out, The Lamb Stank. The waitress told our table that the kitchen only had ten...

The bull was everything we could have hoped for, friendly staff spotlessly clean, good food and service,the only thing that let it down was the service at breakfast, we were asked to choose a table as not many people in dining room at that time, but instead of asking if we wanted tea and coffee the lady walked off then...

We have visited the Bull before and it had been fine.The bedrooms are of a good size and clean.We dined in the bar area because the restaurant was being used. The food was the usual Old English Inns menu but was pleasantly served and good value.

We had an overnight for just £75 incl breakfast .Old and charming with fairly average pub grub at dinner but excellent value. The best breakfast we have had for a long time, loads of choice and freshly cooked with friendly service. Its worth staying overnight just for the breakfast. The Wi-Fi doesn't work.

Had a lovely lunch in the sunny courtyard. It's sheltered so even though it was a cold day it was pleasant sitting outside. The menu offered a great deal of choice. Our mains were both surprisingly good, but the chocolate fudge cake was to die for. We will definitely return.
