“Lovely nights stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Stayed here for one night over Easter. The rooms were clean a really comfy bed. Ate here in the evening and couldn't complain, plenty on your plate and freshly prepared. Don't bother with the car park though hard to get a space and only a fiver for over night on the multi-story. Location spot on, and if your a smoker the beer garden great.

After booking a table two weeks in advance for sunday lunch,we were disappointed on arrival to be told that the sunday roast had sold out. The person who told us was very apologetic but because of the time 2pm, it did not leave any opportunity to go else where. We were offered their standard menu which we accepted but this was not really what we booked for. The attitude was very much take it or leave it. The food was ok but there was no attempt to compensate us for letting us down. We feel that as we had booked specifically for sunday lunch we could not rely on them in the future and could not recommend.

I recommended to my friends my out of town that we have lunch here.. Very much regretted that! Previously I've had great food here, but on this occasion food came and I found a dark hair in my food. I complained & the girl took my plate back to kitchen & didn't say anything! Not even a apology just "I'll get it changed". It came back very quickly which clearly means it's not been changed just had the hair taken off. Also with the meal it came with cucumber, tomato & lettuce on a stewier, the tomato was mouldy on the top! My friends didn't say much but the fact that most of the food was still on the plate suggests it didn't go down well. Mostly really disappointed with the visit & the service from two of the women was cold & unwelcoming. Won't be returning for lunch again!

called in for Sunday lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Quite a good choice and the food was excellent. well presented, well cooked and plenty of it. The staff where really warm and welcoming and adapted the menu to suit my taste with no fuss. Clean nicely decorated surroundings. Hard to imagine it could of ever deserved some of the negative reviews on here. Would definately recommend.

We were staying next door at the prince rupert hotel ... On the 16 November we sat at our table which seated 4 as that was the only one available .. We had been sitting there drinking not eating for a couple of hours quite happily . Until one of the staff approached us to tell us not ask us that we had to give our table as they had people in who wanted to eat.. We were told to sit on a table by the bar where other people were already seated .. We weren't asked in a descent manner asking us if we minded giving our table up we were made to look idiots ... Other customers around us commented to us how bad that we were treated ... I would never ever go back there again .. !! Bad manners by that particular member of staff !!!

We called at the Bull Inn for lunch, after reading the menu, it sounded really nice. When we started to order from the menu, we were told, they had no Bacon or mushrooms for our meal. That's not a good start, when most of the lunch time meals had Bacon and mushrooms on the listing. We were told we had to order drinks from the downstairs bar, and could not put them on the bill. When eventually the meals arrived, after waiting for 25 mins, we were told, they had been 7 cheques before us, but we were not informed of this at the beginning. The Bull Burger was terrible. On the outside of the burger, it was completely black and all you could taste was burnt food, plus it was very dry indeed. When the guy who took our order asked us if everything was ok, we replied NO, the burger was inedible, he just walked away. We will not be going to the Bull Inn again.
