couldn't fault it. never been before and we had a voucher . will definitely go back. my partner had an excellent starter. and our steaks were amazing. really good steaks. almost reluctant to go back in case it isn't as good because I will remember that steak for a long time..... although we are already planning to go back with friends. it doesn't look like a posh restaurant I agree but if you are going for the food and service... then you cant go wrong. staff were so friendly and chatty. we ate sat 2nd may

“Trying hard”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

We bought a deal from Groupon, partly so we had an excuse to visit since it is a short walk for us.

The decor is very nice. I remember when this was a terrible pub, so it is very nice to see it refurbished.

The staff were friendly, the food was nice, but that's it - the food wasn't 'brilliant', and that is what I have come to expect from pubs that convert to restaurants.

This place has a lot of promise, we will visit again.

“Great Food and Venue”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We had dinner last night at The Bull, using an Amazon voucher. We live nearby and had never been, tend to be creatures of habit, but with a deal decided to give it a go. The bar & restaurant are both large, airy spaces. It was a Friday night so pretty busy. I always worry about how voucher guests will be received but we were treated like any other guest. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. We were able to order anything off the full menu, no restrictions or supplements like other venues do for vouchers. This really impressed me. I had fish cakes to start, very tasty and perfect size for a starter. Followed by a good sized sirloin with peppercorn sauce. Steak was cooked perfectly and was tasty. My husband had Peri Peri Prawns to start. They were very spicy and the prawns were cooked perfectly - not rubbery. He had Pork Belly & Black Pudding as a main. I think the pieces of pork belly were the biggest I have seen! Again, it was very nice. We will definitely be making a return visit as the food was excellent and, we felt, the prices were very reasonable.
