We have stayed and dined at the bull for years and can only recommend it again to business people and people on a holiday break. The breakfast, including honeycomb which we have never seen anywhere else, and food is superb. The service from the very helpful staff we have always found to be wonderfull and friendly.

My name is Kali and nobody has ever spoken to me about finding mice anywhere in the hotel We suspect this review has been put there by our ex manager who was sacked for gross misconduct at the end of last year. If whoever put this review would like to call me I will be very happy to discuss it....

A long awaited weekend in the Cotswolds beckoned and we booked The Bull for £155 for a superior room. We got to the hotel early and parked in the car park, big cars , beware they won't fit! Went to check in and a friendly & charming lady said that we had already checked in, very strange as we had...

We had a lovely stay at The Bull, a very old and charming hotel. Beautiful room and very friendly staff. Had drinks in the bar, which has a very cosy fire place. All in all a very "hygge" stay. Would recommend to everyone!

We were enticed inside by the sign for mulled wine...and jolly nice it was, too. We ordered sandwiches for lunch, and they really were something special. Each came with a small container of coleslaw, and a bucket of fat chips. Generous fillings, tasty and great value for money. The staff were friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome.

Stayed here many times and just gets better. Parking sometimes an issue but just find a spot on the side roads - it's no big deal! Staff wonderful with the kids (and dog who gets his own treat at breakfast). This place is over 500 years old and manages to retain it's olde world charm with four-posters in some rooms....

Our one-night stay at The Bull was not perfect, but good food and outstanding staff make up for the little issues that prevent this from being the best place to stay in Burford. As with many Oxfordshire/Cotswold hotels, The Bull is far from cheap and yet the decor of the small double is not in keeping with the price -...

Had a delightful visit to this Inn. We stayed in a Superior room it had loads of room, a comfy bed, large flat screen tv & a well equipped bathroom. But the absolutely best thing about the place is the warm & welcoming staff. Highly recommended for a visit. The only slight hiccup is the tight squeeze when parking but...
