Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited for Sunday lunch and were really impressed with both the quality of the food and friendly service. A really nice atmosphere as well. I definitely recommend and will be returning in the near future.

We have driven passed The Auberge countless times since moving to the area but have never ventured in until this week. We decided to book a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary and are delighted that we did. We both really enjoyed our food and were delighted to see local wines on the drinks menu. Service was friendly and not hurried. The treat at the end marking our anniversary was a lovely touch. We will certainly be back.

Outstanding meal in rural Suffolk. What a treat and surprise. As good as any meal I’ve had in London or beyond in recent years. The wine flight is fabulous and affordable - don’t miss it.

Me and my partner stayed here for a weekend and I have to say I had the best stay ever. The room was so clean and fresh. Nothing was too much trouble from the staff. They could not do enough for us. Me and my partner really enjoyed the food as well. We will definitely be visiting again.

For years this place has had a fantastic reputation and I have always had great food and service from the previous owners. This was my first time here with the new owners and all I can say is everything was exceptional, the staff were all very polite efficient and friendly, Jake was very informative and knowledgeable regarding the produce and drinks. Quite possibly the best Sunday lunch I have ever had. Really looking forward to visiting again

High quality food. Well presented and cooked. Lovely personal service. We went for Valentine’s Day and there was a gift of a rose for every couple. Great ambience - we loved it.

My partner and I invaded this lovely restaurant on a Saturday evening, and we certainly weren't disappointed. With on-site parking and in a lovely area with a hearty atmosphere the lights of The Auberge beckon you. You enter a warm ambience of recessed and suspended lighting, with light-coloured walls with the kept traditional panelling. On your left is a bar and to the right are windows give it an airy feel. We were greeted by Jake, the proprietor extraordinaire and a delightful waitress (forgive me, but I don't know her name). We were soon shown to our table by the window – perfect. Armed with complimentary bread and butter, and to the accompaniment of background music and the chat and laughter of diners already there, we made our selection from quite a varied menu. Our choices were meat based to which lived up to description, I must add the waiter had full knowledge of the menu which is fantastic. Though one would normally associate a white wine with fish, this red complemented our meal splendidly: it is smooth with a hint of sweetness, and an appetising bouquet. We then shared a cheese board with a good selection of cheeses. We then concluded this gastronomic brilliance with a lemon tea, black Americano, and Sambucas. A big 'thank you' to all at The Auberge for a splendid dining experience, the chat, and the laughter. Our compliments to their chefs for their artistry in the 'hot room'. Until the next time, keep smiling and be happy.

A superb restaurant, exceptionally smart and friendly service. Affordable wine flight, well chosen against a diverse and delicious menu. Nice to see a full vegetarian menu, crafted to the same standard as the main menu. Rooms lively. Bed - massive and so comfortable. Oh yes, you can bring your dog! Worthy five star AA hospitality. More restaurant Rosettes predicted.

An excellent evening for our large extended family group celebrating a 'significant' birthday. Superb food and excellent service throughout which was quite an achievement because, as often happens on such occasions, we had numbers changing close to the date. All of that was handled perfectly taking all the inevitable stress that being the organiser brings!

Dear 284davido, It was a pleasure to be able to host a wonderful event for you and your family. What a fantastic atmosphere your party of 19 brought to the restaurant. Those travelling from Ireland were definitely a lively group and seemingly enjoyed their overnight stay with us also. We are glad that we were able to work closely with you in delivering a memorable event. Thank you for choosing the Yaxley Bull Restaurant to host this significant birthday. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards, The Bull Auberge Team

Firstly the rooms need updating in places but worth the £120. Food is very over priced and small designer portions. Very average. Owner likes to talk things up but it's the quality of the food that talks. Positive nice cosy atmosphere. Don't go unless you want to pay lots and come out hungry.

Dear Shirley H, We thank you for the constructive feedback left after you overnight stay and dinner with us and your party of 6. The positives are lovely to hear that you found the rooms good value for money and we already have refurbishment timelines in place to address some aspects of the bedroom space to bring the standard doubles you stayed in, in line with our superior doubles specifications. It is saddening to hear that you did not enjoy the meal on that evening, although we spoke regarding the main course you had and gave a refund to reflect this dish, to our knowledge the remainder of your party enjoyed their meal with some of them stating they were too full to enjoy a dessert. We are constantly looking to adapt, improve and develop our menu offering on a seasonal basis in order to provide a top quality service in every aspect of what we deliver. We strive to use the best produce that East Anglia has to offer, with the remainder coming from mainly within the UK and its reputation for being some of the best available. If you would like to reach out to us directly, we would wish to extend an offer to welcome you back and rectify any doubts you may have about our dining experience. As you may see from other reviews, this is not the quality of dining experience we usually deliver. Kind regards, The Bull Auberge Team
