Having heard this was under new management thought I'd give it a go. Menu OK but lacked much choice and variety. Main courses did not appear to be home made and again were a bit of a let down. Steaks were fine and a full plateful although the presentation was poor. Several deserts were unavailable and a definite no no was the fact that there was also no cheeseboard left either - a big mistake. The pub itself is pleasant, in a nice setting, and has a good atmosphere but think the management need to review the chef, the presentation and the food they are serving. May go back at a later date to see if it has improved.

Where do I start.Debit/credit card facility not working, staff did not mention this on booking, could have been embarrassing if without sufficient cash (carry lots of cash not common nowadays?)* sticky table * no napkins* dead flies and wasps on window ledge next to table* flies buzzing around (maybe to be expected in the countryside?)* empty saltcellar* dirty cutlery needed replacingThis should have been a clue!* wife's starter had hair in it, sent it back.* main courses med veg tart was a cheap pastry case with shredded veg dropped in it. Nothing binding it together, Quality awful, sent it back.* steak pie crust was made from some kind of concrete I think, tried my best!* gravy on pie dinner not served separately and 'drowned' the mealOverall very poor experience, we will not be returning!

Very nice pub, very nice food, lovely atmosphere, great garden especially in the summer. We've been to this pub many times over the last 8 years, even had our wedding reception there in 2003 (took over the whole place) and love it. I notice someone else moaned about the ceiling and door frame height, well, I'm 6'5" and if you use a little common sense it's easy to avoid knocking your head particularly since it's blindingly obvious that the pub is very old and therefore is bound to have ceiling/door height issues. We've always found it to be a very friendly place and would recommend it to anyone with children and/or dogs of which we have both.

Friendly pub,Good food,Good service,Fun for the children. We popped into the Bull this week for a meal and have to say how pleased we all were with the reception that we recieved,It was a fantastic day and we sat in the garden which is immaculatly kept and has ample seating and space for the kids to enjoy the visit as much as we did.They loved the pond and the large patio area , and if the garden isn't your cup of tea then there is allways indoors which is clean and well presented with games provided for the children to play,there are two huge sofas in front of the inglenook fireplace wich must be really cosy in the winter months when the fire is alight.

myself and my wife used to eat at the bull all the time until a couple of years ago as it always had a lovely relaxed atmosphere then it just went down hill..however being fair people we have been twice since and once recently and have to say i will NEVER go again.. the food is diabolical..sounds lovely written on the menu but taste wise is just disgusting and comes across like its been cooked by someone that has no idea what there really doing.writing a nice menu is the easy bit..the service was standard and clinical....its a shame because its a pub thats crying out for someone that knows what there doing to push it forward because all the ingredients are there for ...
