December Menu

Friday 27th November to Thursday 24th December


With all the other stresses and strains of recent months, we wanted to make things as easy and adaptable as possible for you this year just in case things change. That means throughout December…

...no deposits, no set menus and no pre-ordering.


Instead, every day throughout December you will find our menu generously sprinkled with all the flavours of Christmas including, of course, the traditional Turkey Dinner, alongside many of your usual favourites. That way, if you are coming more than once (and why not?) you will have plenty of dishes to choose from. To give you an idea of how things will look, we have created a sample menu below. As there is no need to pre-order you can just decide what you fancy on the day. So while some things will be different we can promise you that...

...the crackling fires, the twinkling trees and the warm welcome
will be just as it has always been at the Bull.


If you’d like to make a booking, please use our booking calendar or if you have any questions please get in touch. In terms of party sizes, at present the Government guidelines state that tables can be for no more than 6 people. We’ll keep reviewing things in line with the Governments steer and let you know of any changes.

Please also consider us for: Christmas Day and Boxing Day.


We are happy to provide you with allergen guidelines for all our menu items, but due to the nature of our busy kitchen, there is a small risk that traces of these may be found in any other dish.

Where certain allergens are highlighted the allergen may relate to just one component of the dish, which may easily be substituted or removed. For more information please ask one of our crew.
