Enjoyed a couple of meals since the Bull reopened. Found the food great. Enjoyed the rabbit tarragon & chicken pie. However, found the service in need of significant improvement. Quite ironic really given a 10% service charge is added to the bill. I do hate this, if I have received good service I will tip. Equally I don't see why...

We've been going for years & have seen varying fortunes at The Bull. It needed a lot of money spending on it & that's clearly happened with the recent re-furb & we thought it was great. Probably no surprises in its Farrow & Ball/modern eclectic look - but very well done - the rooms - knowing their previous incarnations -...

Attended a wedding reception here on Friday 19th May, and stayed overnight with my family and grandchildren. The wedding reception and overnight stay (two rooms) couldn't have been better. Whilst the hotel is going through some refurbishment and modernisation of bedrooms this had no impact whatsoever on the whole experience. Arriving mid afternoon from St Lawrence church at nearby Lechlade...

I had a very nice pot of tea- lovely they serve pots not mugs, but a bit gloomy on a sunny day with all the dark paint. Dead flowers in murky water, using pint glasses as vases- surely at these prices they can afford a vase? Tables full of Sunday lunch debris made it unappealing to sit and relax next...

Just popped in for a drink to sample the Bull experience again and my disappointment continues. Asked for a white wine spritzer and was delivered house white I assume and flat lemonade plus a pint which was ok. Add to this, dirty tables, young girls walking through the bar loaded with bed linen and flowers slowing dying in a pint...

A complete metamorphosis has occurred at The Bull. No chintz or fan shaped napkins to be seen anywhere...... Once in the front door look left and you will be greeted by the most enormous Bulls Head complete with horns ! Bold colours. Great lighting. High end fixtures and fittings. Lots of different dining areas, fireplaces and nooks and crannies. Great...

I live locally and like everyone else in the area was looking forward to the reopening of the Bull. I met some friends for a drink a few days after the opening. The place was packed with people – like ourselves – coming to see what it was like. We were lucky from what I have read on other reviews....

Visited the Bull for an early evening meal. The young man who greeted us kept looking over our heads as he was talking yo us, not concentrating on our conversation. He said he was looking out for a guest who was late. Odd. No tables in restaurant so we went to the bar. Pleasant enough. Bar staff slow and inefficient....

I arrived with my family and we took the window seat in the splendid front room beneath the enormous bull's head, which gave me a bit of a fright, but since I was soon tied to my uncle's left leg, served with water at once and the log fire was lit, I soon realised that it was almost like home....
