The pub is a great place to meet friends, we enjoyed the food which came quite quickly, reasonably priced. Quite difficult to get to find so pleased I had a GPS! Parking available.

Very dog and people friendly place. Lovely old picture-postcard thatched pub with good food which is well priced. The village also has a beautiful little pocket park for dod walking.

Reserved a table for 2 for Sunday lunch .. but need not have worried as we were the only two people in there. We left at 1.30 and saw nobody else eating. What a shame as our meals and service were really very good indeed....More

Just had an excellent meal at The Bull celebrating my Dads Birthday. A little bit slow, but they were fairly busy. Overall no complaints and will be returning

We were booked for friends pre Christmas dinner. The service was friendly. The parsnip soup had the consistency of yoghurt, more of a puree. The turkey was fresh and tasty. Sadly the Yorkshire pudding was burnt, the Brussels were so hard you couldn't get fork...More
