It was also... More

I went with friends from work for a Christmas meal, I couldn't believe it, it was cold no atmosphere no Christmas decorations. We had three courses, the prawn cocktail was nothing like a prawn cocktail!!! The turkey dinnner was covered with this very strong salty and pungent gravy everything tasted of this. I haven't been in the Bull for quite... More

Oh dear, just back from a really disappointing lunch experience at the bull. Can't get the taste of the rock salt out of my mouth. Didn't know that it had changed hands and glad not to have made the hour long walk there. We did try last Thursday but it was shut at 10 past one. 12 people turned up... More

Bar looked dirty and disheveled when we walked in and place was empty . I enquired about food and was told that the chef had popped to the garage .... More

Extremely disappointing. Understaffed, slow service, under-stocked bar, and mediocre food. Large portions!

Staff were very friendly, but the place was cold and had no atmosphere. Didn't have any Diet Coke which was odd and the roast was very disappointing!! Lamb gravy with beef?! Beef which is too tough to cut!? Great location but needs some tlc and maybe a new chef!

Just returned from a family break and stopped in to the bull inn for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the large portions and tasty food at a really reasonable price
