I organized a surprise Birthday Party and asked if they could seat ten. They couldn’t have been more helpful and arranged for us to have sole use of a room called the Barn. Not outside as the name suggests but just off the main room. We had a great time the young lady serving could not have been more helpful.... More

Lovely atmsphere the service was good and the food hot the only down side was the plates were not hot enough so the food got cold before you had finished, mind you this is always my main complaint with pub grub. Full marks to the staff.

I booked for a large group for a Christmas meal and to be honest cannot fault the food it was good value and very nicely cooked. However there was no atmosphere whatsoever, no music or Christmas feeling to the place. The staff were not especially happy or friendly and to be honest were just interested in giving us our food,...

Went here last Thursday evening. There was 9 of us and we ate from the Festive menu. We pre ordered. Service was prompt and efficient. I had the soup which was lovely and hot and then a turkey dinner which was tasty with all the trimmings. The cheesecake was just right to finish off. We all had an enjoyable evening.

A group of us held our annual Christmas get together here. We had use of the back room which made for an excellent atmosphere. The food was excellent with generous servings. Bearing in mind there was a large party in the main body of the restaurant the service was excellent with no periods of waiting between courses.

We had a Christmas dinner here with friends. We were quite a large group and so we booked in advance. Some went for the two course option while the majority went with the full 3 courses. The food came out promptly and I had the pate to start. It was delicious. My main was turkey. The plate arrived with three... More

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.
