I love The Bull. Lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. The garden area is amazing for the children. Staff are all really friendly. I asked for an espresso martini which the waitress explained they wasn’t actually offering. As it was my Birthday they made an exception and it was lovely.

Lovely food and service, last minute booking with only an outside table available, rather chilly but it was our decision to try the outside. Will book further ahead next time!!

Another great meal at the Bull. The food was great and the staff were excellent. They made sure people were adhering to the new covid rules whilst making sure it was an enjoyable experience.

Food was nice but quite pricey.
Also being unable to get out of the table without disrupting another table was a bit awkward..

Was disappointed first thing was I ordered a coke and when the glass came up it had lipstick on it and with what is going on at the moment that is not very good . Then when my roast came up there was a very long hair going right through my roast same again hygiene should be stop on with COVID . They took it away and by the time it came up everyone had finished there food . No one even came over after to make sure everything was ok and didn’t even offer to take the price of my meal off and I had to ask them if they was . Also in the bull was olives that we never had aswell . So overhaul was not very happy with food or service

My husband ordered the pork and the gravy had a thick skin on it and was very jelly like.
My Caesar salad had far too much dressing on it and we had to wait 10-15 minutes before my 4 year olds meal arrived.
Staff were great though and did take the pork and child’s meal off the bill. But it’s a shame when you are looking forward to eating out.

The outside doesn’t do this place
Justice. Been past many times and it’s the first time I have dined there. I loved it. Only had the bar menu but that was adequate for a light lunch. Drinks reasonably priced as well.

Ambience is good and garden very pleasant. In a party of four, we had Sunday lunch. The roast was unfortunately disappointing being pre-cooked and therefore not fresh. The salmon on the other hand was delicious as was the desserts!

We had a family dinner for both our sons birthdays.We had a really good time, but felt that the noise from the bar area was too loud and this put a little dampener in the evening.

Starter was beautiful, but the fish and chips was very average, We had fish n chips in weatherspoons last week and that was far better and a lot less expensive. First time I’ve been the bull and been disappointed tbh, it’s usually top notch.

Love the Bill. Food is exceptional and great value. Waiting staff were struggling to keep up with drinks orders but overall a great night. My only complaint of the Bull is the toilets are a real state and wholly unpleasant.

Three of our party ordered Steak, however on all three plates, there was approximately a quarter of this left as was fatty and chewy , and the onion rings that came with it were very greasy! Other than that we had a lovely evening
