Good choice of meats st the Bulls carvery. They do three sizes of plate to cover all appetites with as much veg as you can fit on the plate. I would advise you to book on a Sunday as the pub was full, I will be back there soon.

Woman at bar when taking orders was horrendously rude .. huffing and sighing at everything I said or asked her about from the menu .. you don't feel very welcome in there at all .. had to return my food as tasted off.. very disappointed and will not be returning.

Hubby and I had pre-ordered for Boxing Day from the Christmas menu £15 each & overall it was absolutely fine and worth the money. The devil's always in the detail isn't it? It's such a shame that, with just a little care from a good restaurant/kitchen manager it could so easily have made the meal much better and better reflected... More

Me and my other half both had burgers. The burgers was okay but the chips was greasy and so was the onion rings.... More

Basil Fawlty is alive and well and working at the bull . I have never met such a rude person working in hospitality as the older chef on the Carvery I picked up a plate he then screamed at me grabbed it and marched like a demon to place it 10 feet away from me! We stayed but wished we... More
