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.

The food was wonderful and staff were friendly and helpful. It’s great to find a family friendly restaurant that also feels special, with so much choice there was really something for everyone and every dish was presented beautifully and tasted fantastic.

This was the best of the three meals I have had at the Bull. The sausage and mash was delicious and my wife’s beef roast looked very good. The crumble was a bit disappointing - the crumble itself wasn’t the best. However overall a really good meal in what is one of the most stylish pubs in the area. The food is a notch behind the quality of the impeccable decor - but seems to be improving each time I go.

Room 5 is a lovely room but traffic noise is a problem from early morning. Breakfast great, evening meal reasonable, fish was good. The lacy potato tasted nasty of old cooking oil.

As we were staying at The Bull we ate here both evenings. We could not fault any of our meals. They were all superb. The steaks were excellent, moist and tasty and cooked perfectly. The fish dishes were really delicious and full of flavour and slightly different than the norm. We cannot praise the staff enough. Smiley, cheerful yet professional. There is also a very nice buzz about the place, very warm and welcoming.

Service was slow, but the reasons for this were given and it was not a big deal for us on this occasion. Also the final bill was adjusted by way of compensation for the delay. The wine was great, as was the food, and we'll certainly be back.

We very enjoyed staying at the Bull, the rooms, beds, food, drinks and service were all (mostly) great. The only mishap was breakfast on the first day (Thursday), the room wasn't busy or full but our food took nearly 40 mins to arrive, and what is more of an issue, when I tried to speak to the waitress about the time it was taking she said she was too busy to speak to me. Happily the the breakfast on Friday was prompt and excellent, and the staff were not too busy to speak to their customers. I put this glitch down as a one-off and the rest of the staff and service were top-notch. I will happily go back and stay at The Bull and heartily recommend it.

Service excellent and quality of food very good. Portion sizes are quite small for the price. The size isn’t an issue as such as it means you have room for 3 courses but perhaps should be priced a little lower to reflect.

A lovely, lovely pub/restaurant/hotel. We loved our stay here; room was fantastic and spotlessly clean. The staff were exceptional, very polite and welcoming. We would not hesitate to return and highly recommend The Bull, for anyone looking to stay in the Cotswolds.
