    Second time we have stayed at the Bull. Pleasant room and good food. Excellent service from the staff and a very nice welcome from the receptionist when we first arrived. Breakfast is well prepared and always a pleasant good morning from staff.

    Hi Bev, we are a group of 8 whom do the Green King Old English New Years deals the past 6 years. The last 3 years have been at The Roebuck in Sussex. We are looking for a change, did you have a disco or other entertainment provided?? Was there a choice of 3 or 4 mains on the menu?? As well as Long Melford we are looking at Thetford, have you been to that one as well?? Thanks for your time .
