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.

Lovely medium-cooked steak, with a punchy peppercorn sauce. Generous onion rings.

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.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the steak and Guinness pie was fantastic. Couldn’t manage the veg as well though. Would definitely recommend. We’ll be back.🤗😁

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

We had a really good meal. The service was excellent. The tables were very spaced out which ensured that we felt very covid safe.

Starter of halloumi was huge for one person. Burgers were over cooked , incorrect filling on one burger so had to be taken back before it even reached the table. Veg sausages were mushy, gravy very tasty. Dessert was the best of the courses. Fresh orange came out of a long life bottle?! Hadn’t been here before and will not be returning as the food wasn’t great. Our waitress was really nice.

Considering the Covid restrictions I think the Bull have it nailed, out table was ready and even though we were late, the staff were very understanding. The food is excellent as usual.

We've been plenty of times before and will not be going back again after our experience.
Food and service was poor, fine if you just want drinks.

Food was fine and the waitresses lovely. Sadly there was a table of 8 adults, drunk and loud, singing, shouting and swearing. They cleared the restaurant. The bar manager / front of house manager was drinking and sitting with them. Would not return.

Had a nice large table in the bar area would have liked the food in the restaurant but couldn’t get booked in there but don’t know why we couldn’t have had that menu??? The service was slow at serving us drinks but overall it was nice.

I have been to The bull previously and been impressed. This time we were seated in the bar and only offered a very limited menu. I knew we would be seated in the bar area but was not advised that we would not have the full menu. Had I been told this I would not have booked. It was a celebration and hot dogs and burgers are not what we wanted

Fantastic! We had a bar meal-burgers chips (nicely served and the burgers tasted home-made!). We followed the meal with one meringue Eaton Mess and a brownie. Lovely tastes with the desert and again presented nicely. The bull staff went out of their way to find us a seat inside as we thought it may be cold outside. Would recommend this lovely pub! :)
