After 3 years eight of us returned to this pub/restaurant to find that little has changed with the host giving personal attention to his customers. Foot and service were of a high standard and all eight of us enjoyed the atmosphere which is very relaxed for such a bust restaurant. The perfect location for group or personal dining thoroughly recommended.

The service was excellent (top class). The food was OK but certainly up to the same level as the service. The prices were at the top of pub food prices and the drinks were also expensive. Came away for feeling we had overpaid for what we got which was a shame given the service being so good. Mixed feelings - you don't mind paying top prices if the whole experience is top class but the Bull has left us feeling let down on value for money and the quality of the food.

We always love the Bull. The food is great and the selection is wonderful. The staff are lovely and we have always enjoyed our visits. This time, however, could not wait to leave. Food good as usual and, to start, all well. Unfortunately, though, by the time we reached the main course we were invaded by a horde of people drinking and swearing, standing at the bar. From then on we were unable to hear ourselves speak and were entertained with unacceptably loud bad language. I cannot imagine how this would have been if we had children or an elderly relative with us. Just hope families with children seated away from the bar. We will probably give it another go because we love the food and the staff. Just hope not seated anywhere near bar.
