My new favourite place for a roast dinner which is not the easiest when you are a vegetarian simply delicious! Portions are huge and the roast potatoes and veg are lovely! Gorgeous pub and have eaten here twice now inside and outside are both just as nice.

This is a attractive place to stay. It just needs some imaginative care and attention to make it even better. The staff are excellent: most kind and helpful. The nearby local walks in the village and along the river are something very special.

We would highly recommend stopping here to anyone we could not fault anything, such a friendly bunch of people in here that also...

Just book and go , you won't be disappointed. I'd say that this was the best pub that I've stayed at!! The selection of beers is impressive but Fullers pubs are always of a pretty high quality, and the bars themselves are Gorgeous

First time we have stayed at The Bull though have visited before. Beautiful quaint pub. We had room 6 which overlooked the front, room could have done with a bit of tlc but we liked it. Dinner was lovely but breakfast a bit disappointing, maybe as it was a bank holiday there were skeleton staff.

Came here with the wife and dog. Everything just ideal: pub with various small rooms and one dedicated for patrons with dogs. Comfortable chairs and not cramped. Perfect old pub feel. Food was excellent. We both had the chef special of chicken, ham and leek pie with duck fat potatoes and cabbage; also came with gravy. Lots of chicken, very...

Staff very good. Bathrooms very poor and in need of major overhaul. I would not stay again until this has been addressed. Parking is limited and not helped by the fact that the chef has got two cars permanently in the car park during the day
