Such a shame - we were celebrating a friend’s birthday and this pub constantly made us feel rushed and unwelcome. The staff were arrogant, rude and extremely unhelpful. I suggest they need re-training. They are of the opinion that the staff are right and the...More

Dinner selection had great choices, I went with the veggie pie and it was amazing. Food was out fast and staff were helpful and polite.

Always, always a good sign when an establishment hands out a jug of ice cool water without prompting. The Bull does just this and thereby got in my good books before even a bite was cast. We were provisionally house hunting in Watton and popped...More

We go here regularly and usually enjoy it very much. I had the twice baked cheese soufflé which was excellent, my husband had the beetroot risotto, not so marvellous. For mains, I had the curried cod, which read well on the menu, and looked good...More

Food was good overall, expensive most dishes £3-£4 more expensive than other pubs, a limited menu and too many typical unhealthy pub dishes. Although a few salad choices I think they need to extend the range & have more variety & healthier food. Not everyone...More

Nice building and reasonable service but food only average. Ordered a bar snack of scampi which included some that were uncooked inside. Dodgy. I took them back and they offered to make a fresh batch. They weren’t great in the first place, being rather flavourless...More

Lovely lunch with very attentive staff. £165 for 6 which included starters, roasts, Caesar salads, beer and wine. A bit slow with the bread for the prawn cocktails but just as well as the portions were huge. Definitely will return.
