From the service to the food it was all excellent. There was live entertainment on which was an unexpected but welcoming surprise. Food was 10/10 and excellent value for money and the staff were all very attentive and prompt with anything needed. We can't wait to all return in the future and already have agreed as a family we will be making this our Christmas family tradition Thank you to everyone that made our Christmas eve special at the bull & dog Emma x

We were so well looked after and the waiting on staff were great. The food was so nice and the portions were good as well. If there was one tiny tiny complaint we had was one of our party was Coeliac (gluten free) and there was no starters and only two choices in the main courses for them. So maybe a few more choices for them would be good.

Waited ages for a menu, went to the bar to order drinks as nobody took our order then the people on a nearby table had to tell the waitress we were still waiting to order food

When the food issue was raised we were told the chef would be informed but no compensation provided.
