We visited here with friends, we were a table of six. It was very busy. The Carvery was good but we waited s long time in between courses. The price you pay for popularity.

Under new ownership, we were promised a great New Year's eve celebration but sadly this was not to be the case. We had to pre order a 3 course meal for which wine was extra. However the Bull and Bear were advertising a 4 course menu with wine for the same date at the same price. When we arrived we... More
