As we walked into this pub for lunch on a Saturday we were initially disappointed as it is in desperate need of updating with all decor looking tired. Very much an old school pub with a few locals at the bar and darts/pool to distract from the drab interior. We had low expectations of the food but were pleasantly surprised... More

My message is simple - this pub serves the best sunday lunch I have ever had. I have have a few in many different pubs in my 64 years. Val and Trevor are leaving for a very well deserved retirement. Get there in the next few weeks to get great food, and service that is how a pub should be... More

We visited The Bull for lunch a week ago, purely on a whim. The staff were very friendly. There is parking first quite a few vehicles. the restaurant is quite large, there is also a large garden for when the weather is nice for eating and drinking. Good beer (so my husband says) Real Ales available👍😀..Good choice of wines also.... More

Although this place appears a shade run down I cannot believe how delightful Val and Trevor have been . I'm convinced this might be the most delightful stay I have ever had with regard to publicans being so accommodating and delightful. Nothing was too much and I can't thank them enough for helping to make our first overseas trip with... More

Stopping off for lunch on our way to an appointment, we found the pub to be busy at Tuesday lunchtime as it was offering a special deal for pensioners, I wish I was quite old enough to qualify as for £4.50 a 2 course meal looked pretty good value. The pub, to be fair, needs some repairs, updating and a... More

Nice friendly pub offering a good selection of home made dishes. My husband and I both had the fish and chips in beer batter and couldn't fault it - delicious. Good value for money.

Have now been twice and had the best pub Sunday Lunch that I have had for years. 5 of us had roast beef that melted in the mouth, fresh veg etc. At £6.50 it was amazing value for a true home cooked meal. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Book if you are going. Recommended.

The guest book outside my room had some rave reviews about The bull inn but I am afraid I have a different view. Arriving on a dark evening and having to cross the uneven and very dark car park and then trying to get in and find someone was not a great start. It seems no one is available until... More

Trevor and Val were lovely friendly people and they have a lovely pub with a very traditional feel. Definitely the place to be with the locals using regularly. They honestly couldn't do enough for anyone staying with them and ensure the rooms are kept clean. I was working in Bury St. Edmunds and found The Bull extremely good value and... More
