    Perfect Day

    We had our wedding here on 27th April, it was the most perfect day!! All our family and friends were well looked after, as were we. Gary is such a friendly man and helped us out in any way he could, the day went so smoothly. Such a beautiful old building with a lot of character. I stayed here for two nights and the rooms were lovely and breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked!

    Renewal of Wedding Vows

    Gary, Soo and all of the team managed our celebration in a professional and friendly manner. They catered for 40 guests very efficiently. The 3 course meal was beyond expectations, with all guests enjoying the meal. This is the second major celebration the Bull Hotel has organised for us, and we can't wait for the 3rd! The Bull is a beautiful building which makes a magical setting for celebrations. Thank you very much for making our wedding vow renewal a very special occassion

    Winter Wedding

    We recently had our wedding at The Bull and couldn’t have been happier. The food and service were both fantastic and the day went perfectly. All of our guests commented on the beautiful venue and friendly staff. We also booked the majority of the rooms within the hotel and nothing was too much trouble, including the early check in’s we had requested for several members of the wedding party. We will have very fond memories of The Bull for years to come and very much look forward to visiting again soon
