Great inn with lovely staff
Was there with my elderly mother, for a few nights over Christmas- the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate us - they have 2 accessible rooms and all the rooms in the old inn are individually decorated - i had the flamingo room and it was great !! Will definitely be going back

Great Food, Rooms, But Staff!
Excellent food, Lovely Rooms, not so great customer service. Had to ask to be checked in after standing in front of a person on Reception who simply did not acknowledge me. Even when the manager checked me in, felt like it was an effort for him. Shame because otherwise everything was great

A traditional pub offering good food and service. The evening meal was very good, except for one very small thing! One, single, tiny, mushroom on our plates, served as a portobello mushroom! The bedroom was comfortable albeit small, but we knew that when we booked. What we weren't aware of was that we would be laying in the middle of a 'night club' when we went to bed...the music and attendees seemed to get louder the longer it went on, and on, and on....

Lovely rooms with massive beds and very comfortable, excellent breakfast - my only criticism would be there is not enough plugs in the room and by the bed - but given the age of the property this is understandable

We read some of the bad reviews and was hesitant at first. They have address the previous issues and have really turned around. We got very good service and really enjoyed the staff. It’s a neat hotel and restaurant and I recommend it. We stayed for a week on a business trip and I’m glad we made the decision to stay at the Bulls Inn
