The service was welcoming, friendly and efficient throughout my stay. The young team could not have been more helpful, and despite the restaurant being full most of the time, I was never kept waiting. The quality and variety of food was excellent, with a great atmosphere during the busy meals service. My room was comfortable and well designed with everything I needed, I will most certainly come again, and would not hesitate to recommend it. The only negative comment was being able to hear fridge/oven and other doors opening and closing from my bedroom on the mezzanine floor. I wish you all the best of luck under the current lockdown and look forward to visiting again in the not too distant future.

Not the best meal ever. Soooo disappointed. Venison given a butter knife to eat. Waitress gave us steak knives after we complained helped nothing with the chewiness of meat. I never complain and feel embarrassed that we got a free meal with puds. Was so disappointed as was a special treat for hubby. Restaurant lacks direction and food was overpriced. Manager handled situation well but the experience spoiled our day. Sorry

I am a 70:30 vegan:vegetarian and we went on vegan night quite by accident. Staff were very sympathetic and provided some bread and oil for the children who definitely aren't vegan. The vegan dishes were individually enjoyable, but overall everything was a bit too 'soft'. There was a need for some additional texture that wasn't provided by the few almond flakes on the celeriac/lentil/cooked fennel dish. Even the salad leaves weren't that crunchy because they were smothered in a srong mustard dressing. The 'snack' of battered sprouting broccoli was definitely the standout dish.

Hi Sarah, Thank you for your review. We're so sorry that you weren't informed it was vegan night when you made your booking. This is something that we aim to inform everyone of beforehand and we apologise that it slipped through the net. We're glad that you enjoyed the broccoli but are very disappointed that the rest of your meal wasn't great. If you would like to discuss it further, please don't hesitate to pop an email to our Assistant Manager at [email protected] She'll be more than happy to discuss this with you. Many thanks.

The staff were very attentive and lovely, we were greeted immediately and seated even though we were a little early. The fig and whipped curd dish was a favourite and the sourdough focaccia was some of the best bread I have ever had. 3 small plates plus bread was plenty for two of us. We’ll be back soon.

I had a wonderful experience at the Bull Inn, which I visited with a friend as a treat. Lovely decor, comfortable rooms, immaculately clean. The staff were friendly and hospitable without being overbearing - everyone working at the hotel/pub we came into contact with during the stay was equally fantastic at their job. The food was really great and the drinks delicious and good value for money. The sustainable ethos was a bonus and something I hope other businesses adopt. A great job done in difficult times. Really cheered me up after a very difficult few weeks before my visit. I look forward to coming back.
