Having first visited as a group in Xmas '16 I was impressed and since have revisited a further 3 times. Each visit had a warm greeting from the landlady and her staff, shown to the table, drink orders taken and not rushed into food choices. Good range of menu with everything prepared to order and a decent size portion. Burgers... More

We visited the Bull Inn for lunch on Easter Saturday and were very impressed with not only the quality but also the very generous portions. The staff were a delight with nothing too much trouble for them. Obviously word is getting around that since the new landlords have taken over this place is on the up judging by the number... More

Really good food and plenty of it. The Landlady and waiting staff were very very helpful The Landlord is a chef and he seems to be able to prepare a most excellent meal without too much of a delay. It is home cooked and not boil in the bag

We had an early evening meal here while the restaurant was still quiet. It was a treat. The meals were generous, reasonably priced and well-cooked. We also had a surprise visit from Lulu - who you are likely to eet if you dine here in the near future.

Arrived at about 12.15pm without booking. We were told the restaurant side was fully booked but we could sit in the bar side which was fine. We both had roast beef which was very nice and a generous sized portion. We ate our dessert in the nice pub garden. The staff are all very friendly and attentive. Would go again.

Really friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, generous size meals and a great selection. Suited us and three kids age six and 10. Cost also very good. Only downside, lack of kids play area as our kids love those but not essential.

We were a party of 7, on a Saturday night when the pub/restaurant was very busy. Both food and service were superb - all 3 courses were brought to us swiftly and efficiently, and the food was absolutely delicious, and very reasonably priced. We shall definitely be visiting again, and have no hesitation in recommending The Bull to others.

We have been a few time before and decided to go for an early Sunday meal at 6pm (kitchen closes at 7pm). We were a party of four and decided not to have starters. The waitress was very attentive and drinks arrived quickly. Somewhat unadventurously, three of us had the traditional burger. Excellent meat, full of flavour, bun toasted perfectly... More
