We as a family had a gathering in Fairford a place our family has lived for a number of years. We went to the bull as it is somewhere my grandad use to take us years ago. Sunday night it was quiet. For those looking for somewhere without music it is perfect. The food was good but not amazing. We...

Beautiful looking Hotel from the outside. Fairford a sleepy delightful village. You will get a warm friendly welcome in this hotel. Room very tired and would benefit from some modernisation however clean sheets and comfy beds. Delicious cooked breakfast. Easy access to Cotswold attractions.

I know the current management is moving on & it's a real shame what's happened here. The Bull had gone on for years with very little modernisation & when the current incumbents took over, it needed a serious amount of money spent on it. The food improved vastly but unfortunately it doesn't appear to have had enough support to finance...

Hotel/ pub looks nice from outside, fairford cute little village. Rooms are very tired, dirty Windows, old bathroom, bits of wall hanging off. But positives - good shower, bed and breakfast. Would I stay again? Probably not, better hotels for similar price nearby.

Great position in the centre of Fairford. We love the town and were pleased to return to the hotel after some years, now under a different management. The building is not perfect, but is quirky and charming. Room 26 overlooking the square was delightful, four poster bed and comfy chairs. Be aware the there is a beam which is not...

Went to the bull hotel for a meal. The food was good, but was interrupted buy a member of the staff children who was swearing and been rude. This was disgusting behaviour from the children. Going into a public house at 8 o'clock I expected to have a nice quiet meal.

Stayed here in spite of some of the reviews, mainly because it was dog friendly and where the fishing was. Hotel is quirky and could do with some money being spent. However it is a great building, the staff are all very helpful and the food was good, the beef (local sourced) is excellent. I think it delivers value for...
