“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2010

We had a great stay at the Bull Inn and would recommend it to others. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower is absolutely amazing - possibly the best shower in the world! The owners were friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay. The food was well prepared, tasty and fresh and we enjoyed eating dinner in the front bar with the locals.

Sometimes when you re visit special places, they can be a bit of a disappointment – Not so at the Bull! We went back for a trip down memory lane and fell in love with it all over again. The food and welcome were superb, whilst the Cotswold countryside was just as lovely as ever. A great stop off place for walking, eating and drinking – all of my favourite things.

We had a very comfortable stay at the Bull recently. Breakfasts were good, and the room was cosy and clean, with a large bathroom, lots of hot water, and tea and coffee facilities. The owners were very pleasant. We did not eat in the restaurant/bar as it is closed on a Sunday and Monday evening, but the menu looked very good. There are other pubs in Charlbury, all serving great real ale, within a minute's walk of the Bull. The Bell Inn nearby serves very nice food.
The Bull is in an ideal location to visit Blenheim Palace and the surrounding area which is very pretty. We did a good 4 mile walk from the village one evening.
We enjoyed our visit - the only slight downside was that our room faced onto the street, and with the windows open in summer time, it was a little noisy.

My husband and I stayed for two nights while visiting my brother who lives in Milton-under Wychwood. We were extremely pleased with our double room and slept soundly. The attached bathroom (shower, no bath) was perfect for our needs. Staff (owner) was very pleasant and made herself available. Breakfast was typical English fare which my husband enjoyed to the fullest! Alas, I was a little on the sick side so I just had toast and tea.

If you do stay in Charlbury, ask for directions to Cornbury Park which is great for a walk. Here are my directions but double check - go straight down the street from the front of The Bull Inn and follow the street which eventually bends to the left, keep walking and you will eventually come to the opening for the park. You have to use the public path so make sure you don't go beyond the gates (this is private residential property).
Stopped and chatted with the vicar of the Anglican Church who was also very pleasant.

Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at The Bull Inn in Charlbury in October 2008 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a lovely time. Our room was on the main street overlooking the village. It was spacious, with a small but very comfortable bathroom. We were warm in spite of the fact that the weather was chilly. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The bar had a great atmosphere which added to our visit. The food in the restaurant was delicious, and again the atmosphere was lively. The owners are working hard to make a success of this venture and seemed to us to be willing to receive feedback in a very positive way. They are also unusual in accepting bookings for single Saturday nights. Many Cotswold B & Bs insist on a minimum two night weekend booking. Woodstock and Blenheim Palace are only 6 miles away, and hotels and B & Bs there cost double (at least) the rates at The Bull. We will have no hesitation in visiting again, and look forward to doing so.
