Had dinner here this evening and was very disappointed, the restaurant was cold although we sat by the fire a candle would have had a bigger flame, the plates were cold so very quickly was our dinner, the peas were like marbles. Good beer and pleasant service helped a bit though.

Visited on a Monday afternoon, 4 adults and 3 children. The pub is nicely decorated with plenty of decent sized tables. Extensive menu which is reasonably priced. All if our food was of a high standard and couldn't fault any of it. Staff very friendly and attentive. Would definitely return.

Went last Saturday for lunch. Staff were very friendly and a good selection of food on the menu. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and I think we could have been there all afternoon and the staff would have been quite happy. If you want a nice leisurely lunch this is the place to go. I had lasagne which was... More

We visited The Bull tonight with relatives and had a delicious meal. We all ordered different main courses and puddings and were all very pleased - the food was tasty, well cooked and reasonably priced. There's plenty of choice on the menu and the pub was cosy and warm with a lit wood burning stove and the whole ceiling is... More

Lovely atmosphere. Tasty food at sensible prices. Beers are great. Open fires. Friendly staff. What more do you want from a country pub?

Food was very tasty and large portions, I couldn't manage all of my toad in the hole which was a shame as I... More

Situated on the main road that swings round the village, a good place to stop if just passing or staying nearby (good car-park). Although we stopped off for a quick pint a few times (nice ales), we only ate there one night. Food was fairly priced and nicely presented, service was fine and friendly, with a decent menu selection. Plenty... More

We visited the Bull Inn on the basis of a recommendation from a work colleague so were optimistic in terms of both quality of food and service. Sadly we were let down on both counts. Part of our group were late in their arrival so we weren't taken to our table straight away. However, when they did turn up we... More

Popped in for a late lunch on Sunday on what was clearly the end of a very busy afternoon for the pub. Very friendly welcome and excellent service throughout and whilst many items from the specials board and main menu had run out we all had a very good meal that was well cooked and presented and represented excellent value.
