Went for an evening meal. Decor looks good. However, no vegetarian 'main meals' and the only option was pasta or pizza. This I feel is a bit of a poor option for a vegetarian meal. Hopefully when they have settled in they will rectify their 'mains' menu.

Recently soft launched after a major renovation, the Bull at Fairford is the latest pub acquisition by Lana and Sebastian Snow. (see pubs at Filkins and Kelmscott) The exterior of this lovely Cotswold inn remains unchanged but step inside and the words quirky, chic, cool and boho come to mind. It has had a major interior designed makeover. The entrance...

Lovely atmosphere the bull has been done out to an excellent standard, it was very busy but didn't wait long to be served by polite friendly staff all of which were working full on. Looking forward to visiting the restaurant on Monday for a meal with friends. So pleased to have somewhere decent within walking distance to enjoy a social...

Our beloved Bull has opened, so we called in for a beer on Friday afternoon. I am pleased to say that at least Arkells 3B has been retained. The refurbishment of the Bull Hotel has been sympathetically carried out to a high standard. No food as yet but little steps I assume. A downside is that some work is still...

The Bulk has been closed for refurbishment and has now re-opened and it's a mixed bag. First the good. The refurbishment has been very well done. The decor is very much in keeping with the town and it has a really good country inn feel. Quite dark inside but it works. Lots of places to sit and little places to...

Poor accommodation. A "family suite" with a second bedroom for my teenage children that was far too small. We had informed the tenant licencee of the children’s ages and their room contained a small put-you-up bed, wedged against the sink and two other beds, one of which was blocking the fire exit. Disgusting smell of cigarette smoke coming from a...

I needed to have a break away after an extremely busy year. I booked a room at The Bull as it was so reasonable. I then saw on trip advisor that there were less than favourable reviews. I was apprehensive to say the least, but upon arrival the lady behind the bar was very accommodating checking me in. The room...

Booking was easy and when we arrived we were warmly welcomed and check in and shown to our room. *There are quite a few single or small flights of steps around the hotel so if you have difficulty with steps, this isn't the place for you.* With that aside we had a lovely stay in this 15th century hotel, don't...

Had a lovely weekend planned to show my partner the delights of the Cotswolds. Having stayed at the Bull several times with my parents around 10 years ago and finding it a comfortable and friendly place to stay it was my first choice when looking for hotel. I was therefore extremely disappointed to find the room I booked in a...
