We have eaten at the Bull on several occasions and it has always been excellent. Today however, having praised everything about The Bull, we went with visiting family members having promised them a lovely roast dinner in gorgeous surroundings. This time, however, we waited over an hour for our meals, which when they arrived, were mediocre at best. The service...

I was away for work and rather than checking in at a chain (Premier, Travelodge etc) I thought I'd support a family-run business instead (albeit part of a large pub firm) - unfortunately a massive mistake. The manageress and manager, Jenny and Craig I believe, seriously lack in any customer service or social skills and were slightly aggressive. On arrival...

One of the best jacket potato's I have had - unlike the usual potato that looks and tastes like it's been left and reheated- on the contrary this was hot fresh and very tasty. Thank you too for the fresh prawns minus the sauce (slimming world style) - nothing was too much trouble! Great place to eat and drink- we'll...

The staff are friendly and efficient. The evening meal was fine and well priced. The cooked breakfasts are super, whatever you choose. The room was showing signs of wear. However, it was clean and comfortable.

Had a very enjoyable evening meal here. I had the Chicken and Ribs combo, which was a very ample portion of very tasty good quality food. The wines are very good quality and value as well. All served by very friendly and efficient staff. A very good restaurant indeed , and one that I will definately revisit.

We stopped here for dinner with our dog and were seated on the patio. The food was freshly cooked and really good and the staff were friendly and efficient. Varied menu - another meat free option would be good but that's my only minor criticism- very happy thank you

We stayed overnight in one of their rooms. Check-in was easy, found the room to be spacious and the bed was comfortable! By no means 5* but certainly matched the price we paid. Our room was above the bar so there was a bit of noise, but only up till closing at 11. Breakfast was included which was a bonus...

This is the second time I've stayed here and the second time I've been exasperated by the same policy. When I arrived I was told the bar would shut early if it was quiet. So, a friend and I were sat in the bar with around 20 other customers having a nice drink and the barman shouted "time" at 10:20pm....
