Stayed in Dereham a couple of times recently and the choice of places to eat isn't great unless you get in the car. Last night just wanted something local and within walking distance of the hotel. Called here just purely because we walked past it. Great welcome, good honest food. Reasonably priced and all three people sent their plates back... More

I had heard several people say how nice the food was so 3 of us decided to eat there. I ordered steak and chips which was full of gristly bits, one ordered a pie which was mainly crust and one gammon, which had a huge amount of fat and rind attached. We waited ages too. The waitress came round just... More

The decor in this pub has greatly improved since my last visit, the menu had been greatly updated and I must say that the food that I had was much appreciated after a long day at work. We will return for sure.

A very wet 1st February and a nice homely pub. Cutlery etc already on the table with menus so up to the bar and order and pay. The pub filled up nicely, however there was still lots of space between tables. The order took a good 20 minutes to come which I felt was a little too long as both... More

The Bull is a nice-looking pub from the outside and the interior is pretty good too! Typical 'Greene King' set-up and although I havent had a meal her, I am not a fan as I dont really like the beers in stock. Have never found the staff to be too obliging, just doing their job which is fair enough. Not... More

16 of us had lunch at the Bull. We had pre-ordered to speed the meal up, especially for the staff. The food was served quickly, hot and well presented. I would recommend the pub to any group wanting a good, reasonably priced meal.

Main meal was unfortunately very disappointing, veggie burger was so very greasy and the chips were cold..Would have been very nice to have had the fires on but alas apparently no gas :-(

As I said this was not planned but we decided to go out for dinner, this Pub was convenient and we parked in the Cherry Tree car park, As I walk with a stick it took us about 12-15 minutes to reach. The pub is very old and full of characture. We were shown our seats by a very pleasant... More
