We were a party of 7, on a Saturday night when the pub/restaurant was very busy. Both food and service were superb - all 3 courses were brought to us swiftly and efficiently, and the food was absolutely delicious, and very reasonably priced. We shall definitely be visiting again, and have no hesitation in recommending The Bull to others.

We have been a few time before and decided to go for an early Sunday meal at 6pm (kitchen closes at 7pm). We were a party of four and decided not to have starters. The waitress was very attentive and drinks arrived quickly. Somewhat unadventurously, three of us had the traditional burger. Excellent meat, full of flavour, bun toasted perfectly... More

On our first visit we were welcomed as if we were old friends - the two waitresses positively sparkle. The menu was enticing, the food was well-cooked & served promptly. The ambience was perfect, except for the music, most of which was miserable, depressing stuff in the "soul" category. Cheery music would suit the place far better

Returned after a few years and agree present owners have got it right. Menu reasonably priced with a varied choice, with some usual pub classics.Enjoyed the white bait and salad starter, followed by a "chicken stack". Steak and fish dishes, as well as pizzas to choose. Not many people in restaurant when we arrived, so service was quick but imagine... More

Great food which was beautifully presented,tasted great and was reasonably priced for New Year. The staff were friendly and attentive without being a nuisance. Although busy was not rammed which was a pleasant surprise allowing enough space for dancing and socialising with the rest of our family. The band created a party atmosphere ( although they played 80's style music... More

My wife and I are regular visitors to the Bull and have always had lovely food. Due to previous bad experiences of eating out on Xmas day at other pubs we were worried what the Bull would serve especially as we were taking friends with us. There was no need for us to be concerned, we had the best Christmas... More
