We visited the Bull for our Christmas together. The Restaurant was quite full which is always a good sign. Our meal was a traditional Christmas meal with all the trimmings. As always consistently good and I really recommend and will visit again soon. Thanks Alberto.

An unpretentious pub which serves well kept Timothy Taylors and has good food. Only a snack was needed but I can recommend the jacket with cheese and bacon. Fresh ingredients well put together and swift service. A short walk from the town centre but worth the hike.

Called in here on the off chance as passing one Sunday as we had heard good thing. We were not disappointed and had a great roast dinner which was enjoyed by all. The landlord served us, letting us in slightly early (we were a few minutes before official opening time) and was very friendly.

I had an evening meal at the Bull last week. Service was very good as was the food. My favourite part was the Salted Caramel Cheesecake it was divine. Tuna salad was tasty and very colourful. Downside was the Tuna was slightly overcooked. Would perhaps try it again but mention it next time.

I had an early evening meal here during a stay at the Travelodge which is a 10 minute walk away. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the pub / restaurant is very nicely decorated, but the food is a bit of let down. I had a chicken burger, which was rather dry, and somewhat tasteless; the accompanying chips were... More
