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 :-(

Cold and wet day in Dereham was made a whole lot better with a visit to The Bull ,the service was excellent as was the food . We all had something different with no complaints about anything on our plates all cooked as we had requested. Coming from the north east we like to get value for money and we... More

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

My friend booked this pub as we were visiting her and wanted to eat out on Sunday. The staff are really friendly. The food did take a while but it was so tasty and fresh it was definately worth the wait. I chose the tomato and red pepper soup to start then ultimate fish&chips...both delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals and... More

Our drinks were completely forgotten about, my lunch order was wrong and the waiter walked off and ignored us when we said the food wasn't great. Very disappointed. We were given an apology but it was the most ungenuine and careless sorry I've ever received in an eating establishment. Normally love this pub and the staff are great, but I'm... More

Nice pub in the middle of Dereham. The food in nice but can take a while to come out and when it does, it's not very hot. Also the bar staff aren't always the friendliest and might ignore you!

Thank Claire S
