Without a doubt the BEST Sunday lunch can be found at The Bull Inn. Three types of potatoes, delicious rich gravy, perfectly cooked meat and no fuss simply cooked cooked fresh vegetables. On top of this we were really impressed with the care and attention taken for a veggie roast - substituting meat for ratatouille, a really lovely touch. Already planning a return visit for next weekend.

The Bull is an excellent traditional English Pub, steeped in history, set in the beautiful Somerset countryside, not far from National Trust landmark of Stourhead and trending Bruton.
Walking in we immediately felt welcome, striking up easy conversation with Landlord and Landlady, Martin & Ann. Good local beers, chatty and charismatic locals, large open wood-burning fireplace and local artwork on the walls completes the scene.
After drinks and banter at the bar we had Thai Salmon and Fish and Chips. The Thai Salmon was perfectly cooked with subtle seasoning. The Fish & Chips was simply a classic, generous in both quantity and quality.
Rounded off the meal with selection of local Marshfield ice cream, another best for Somerset.
As far as English Pub's go 'The Bull' is a thoroughbred.

The food at The Bull is never disappointing. Service is always exceptional too. I had a prawn cocktail starter, roast beef and all the trimmings followed by lemon tart. Delicious!

I came here with my husband a few Saturdays ago on a child free evening for a much needed 'date night' the food is amazing and the landlord was very welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant and we had a lovely evening. So much so we decided to go back with our 11 month daughter on a lovely sunny Saturday. We sat in the garden at the back which was perfect for our daughter to play in. Yet again the landlord was welcoming and friendly and offered us a highchair for the little one. My husband had ham egg and chips and I had the beef bourguignon Both delicious. This will be our little place to go from now on as we both enjoyed coming here so much.
