Really enjoyed the food here, I had the crayfish and scallop risotto and it was perfect! The main restaurant is lovely too! My favourite place to eat in Royston by far!

We have had a few meals here recently with family and friends and really enjoyed it! The food is really excellent and they always do a little something extra with birthday cakes if you take them in, putting them on a nice board and decorating it etc. It also has a nice relaxed atmosphere, you don't feel rushed to leave...

Very good service both from the wait staff and at the bar. Well kept beer and a good selection on offer. The meals we had were cooked fresh and very tasty with decent sized portions both for adults and particularly for the children. Would say that the only let down was that the boards they serve the burgers on aren't... More

Just had the duck special and have to say best duck I have had in a restaurant for ages. Always wary about selecting duck and a special, as wonder if the special is to use old product and many times have been served a plate of rubber duck that wouldn't even compete with the bathroom variety. However this was perfectly... More

We came to the Bull for breakfast last sunday. It took a while to be served initially, but once we ordered the drinks and food came in a reasonable time. Portions were large, especially for the full english which came with drinks and toast. All of the food was lovely, and ingredients were fresh with hot plates. Those having the... More

Called in passing through and looking for somewhere to eat. It was very busy but they found us a table in the bar area. Olde world with exposed beams. Plenty of people just drinking and socialising. Also a separate restaurant which may have had a different menu. Plenty to choose from on the one we were given. Food was of... More

Met up with family, which included toddlers for lunch here today. Excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Great menu choices. The children's portions would probably have suited adults they were huge. Excellent quality food. Well presented and reasonably priced. Would recommend it for lunch
