Had a lovely lunch in the sunny courtyard. It's sheltered so even though it was a cold day it was pleasant sitting outside. The menu offered a great deal of choice. Our mains were both surprisingly good, but the chocolate fudge cake was to die for. We will definitely return.

We were on a walk from Sudbury to Long Melford . We fancied a Coffee, because I was unable to have a decent cup at breakfast in our hotel. Well the same thing happened here,the coffee was awful. Not what I expected, and not worth the price. I know a little about coffee, and class my self as a bit...

I ate here recently with a group of colleagues. I've often driven past the Bull but never ventured in until now. The venue is beautiful with lots of Suffolk charm. The menu looked great - I had a difficult time choosing what I wanted to eat as there was so much good food on there! When the food came out...

Much planning had gone into a family 70th birthday lunch get-together for 24 people on 12th March. The event overall was most disappointing and did not proceed according to plan at all, although the waitress was brilliant and did all she could to salvage the situation. We waited far too long for the (pre-ordered food), some of which was inedible,...

Nice enough pub. Food was decent for a wedding dinner and staff were friendly and attentive. The building is clearly very old. The room we stayed in was very crooked with low ceilings and difficult to find a flat place to stand. But done the job fine. Lovely area, parking a bit tricky, but overall a pleasant stay.

The building is fabulous. The bar staff in the evening were friendly. Food was nothing special. Breakfast was appalling. We waited 30 minutes for cooked breakfast, Served burnt toast. The 2nd day we decided just to have cereal as the wait was far to long for breakfast. We were not offered any tea or coffee or toast. We left just...

Not a place I will be returning to. The hotel is in need of refurbishment. There was a new waitress serving at the bar who was nice and friendly and dinner was fine. Breakfast the next day was horrible! The scrambled egg was really dry. We didn't complain as I knew they were without a main chef at the time.

We ate here as part of a dinner dance; £35 @, but was severely disappointed with the food, a 3 course 'meal'. The vegetarian option of mushrooms in a sort of pepper sauce took 15 minutes to appear after the other 90 starters; the main course of a risotto was so overcooked and sticky it was clear that 'chef' was...

We were driving through the picturesque village of long melford and decided to have lunch. Managed to get a table due to a cancellation. Wonderful setting in a very old building with tables covered in white linen. Food was awesome totally recommend the beef rib roast dinner. Exquisite dessert, all topped of with very good service. Highly recommended.
