I booked an overnight stay with dinner via secret escapes for my mum as her x mas present. We both loved it and I have already recommended the place. The decor is stunning, the food fantastic and the staff so friendly and accommodating. We hope to return!

We booked for Sunday lunch after a 5 mile walk around the area, I must say that this was one off the best sunday lunch we have had for a very long time and we walk and have sunday lunch almost every week around this area. Well worth a visit and the chef should be congratulated on a truly delicious roast!

Very pleasant and relaxing meal in the restaurant. Surprised not to see the Boxing Day menu but food was very good anyway. Desserts are excellent but a bit pricey for traditional choices - would think twice if not having a special treat - but mains are always good and well priced. Place is always very friendly - like that. You have definitely won us back in spite of the gloomy decor which put us off at first.

My only criticism was that my panacotta was very ‘firm’. It was edible though and didn’t spoil the meal!!

Lovely Christmas Eve lunch to start off our festivities - Thankyou! Could of been a bit more Christmassy in the dining area as there were no decorations there at all?

I recently booked the function room for a works Christmas lunch. The room was beautifully set up, decorated with Christmas attire. The food was delicious, it came out on time and was presented well. Everyone has a wonderful time, the staff were fantastic at taking care of us, very well mannered & helpful. I highly recommend The Bull Hotel especially for a big gathering / function.

On our 3rd & final night we had an excellent meal. All meals were very good indeed, except for the very poor pizza on the second evening. Already mentioned this previously.

Our meal on the 26th Nov was very good. The service of the Irish lady on duty absolutely excellent. However the pizza I ordered on our second evening 27th Nov was very poor, the Irish lady on duty again returned it to the kitchen, a second pizza was prepared. It was much thinner which was an improvement, but sadly still soggy. My husband’s main course was fine.

The atmosphere and service was good despite being a busy Sunday. Unfortunately we really did not enjoy the food. The roast beef we had was covered in an overpowering very sweet gravy which really ruined the whole plate.

Indifferent over two nights Friday the food was good but on Saturday we were given the wrong mains however the starters were very good. Service was good Friday but questionable on the Saturday so all in all an average experience which was a shame as the food has the potential to be excellent. Mix up over booking meant we were allocated a lesser room which did not enhance our experience as we were above a noisy function room for Saturday night. The hotel staff were poor st remedying this and it took a phone call from the manager to resolve however I am still awaiting e mail confirmation from the manager about what was agreed between us to rectify. Let’s see if Steve is as good as his word.
