The Bull is a fine timbered venue, and was originally built for a wealthy wool merchant in 1450; by 1580 it had become The Bull Hotel. The hotel’s history and character is evident everywhere, from the massive moulded oak beams dominating reception to the wooden rafters, carvings, open fireplaces and period furniture throughout. Its original timber work, both inside and outside, is unusually well-preserved. It is renowned locally for its excellent food, warm welcome and great hospitality.

Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Jess & Tony, on 14 May 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2019

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!

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
Venue Service

By Laura & Jonathan, on 14 May 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Dec 2018

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

Family Wedding
Venue Service

By Lauren & Alex, on 14 May 2019Date of Wedding - 27 May 2018

Visited the bull for my daughters wedding on Sunday 27 may and what a great venue. We also booked several rooms and they were very nice. Gary and his wonderful staff looked after us all incredibly well and nothing was too much trouble. We were blessed with wonderful weather which made it even better. We all met up for breakfast the following morning which was lovely. Although ours was the third consecutive wedding of the weekend nothing was under par and everything went like clock work. The meal was amazing as was the disco. Thank you to all the staff for making my daughter's and son in law day so very special

We had our wedding here a couple of weeks ago and it was Amazing, the venue looked fantastic and the staff were friendly and helpful, Gary did a great job and nothing was too much trouble, the drinks were always topped up and our wedding breakfast was delicious equally the bbq buffet in the evening too. Was a lovely touch sending guests who were staying in the hotel a breakfast invite so we could all have breakfast together the following morning as well, everything went so smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for more would highly recommend this venue.
