The Bull has a real old pub feel to it. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We were there for a pleasant dinner with friends and to spend the evening. We never felt rushed and we had a great night. Superb beer as well! We did not use the rooms so no opinion offered

This is a brilliant pub. Not only is the decor modern yet traditional, the staff are friendly, free wifi, dog (and goat) friendly and the food is brilliant! Not to mention pretty ample parking! If you don't fancy a full on meal then you can always have bar snack hot or cold at reasonable prices. I really recommend the dinner...

Arrived to what appeared a charming and busy pub, parked the car and then started to wish I had paid heed to the negative reviews on Tripadvisor. I foolishly thought people were being vastly oversensitive about the level of cleanliness and the poxy cockerel but it was sadly all accurate. The pub was busy, granted, so I failed to get...

Booked for one night and checked in. Whilst the bedroom seemed to be clean the tea/coffee etc had not been replenished. I then went to the bathroom and discovered that it had not been cleaned. The toilet seat was soiled and the bin had not been emptied (I won't go into detail). I went to the bar and asked for...

Went to the Bull Inn last weekend. We reserved a table for 8 (4 adults, 4 children). We arrived and sat down at 12:30, but it took 15 mins until they asked if we wanted to order drinks and half an hour to even see a menu (apparently they were all being used but there were plenty of empty tables)....

We like the Bull. The food is always good and the staff are friendly. There's a range of local beers and if the sun is shining it's great to sit outside. Extra special if you are cycling or walking in the area. The Pang Valley is lovely and the Bull is the perfect place to stop. We had a small...

Reserved a table and definitely worth it. A traditional english pub in a delightful rural location with a great atmosphere! Food was excellent with a wide range of a menu mixing pub classics and fresh daily dishes. On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the local lad behind the bar who sorted us out with drinks and menus, before being...

Half way round a good walk we stopped here for lunch. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Try the toad in the hole with garlic mashed potatoes; very good indeed
