Welcome to The Bull, a Grade II-listed coaching inn, gloriously situated on the Market Square in Fairford, a picture-perfect market town in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds. The Bull now offers both restaurant and private dining spaces and a traditional pub bar, with open fires, and serving local craft beers, spirits and great wines. There’s also a traditional, vaulted barn, The Bull Room, for weddings and parties for up to 50 guests. BAFTA nominated set designer, Corina Burrough and interior designer Jo Titchener, worked to create The Bull’s beautifully refurbished interiors throughout, including its 21 individually furnished, en-suite bedrooms. The Bull also has private fishing rights to a 1.25-mile stretch of the River Coln with excellent fishing for grayling and trout, making it a popular base for fly-fishing trips. Rods cost from £40pp a day for up to five people.

Really lovely staff with brilliant customer service. Had a fantastic meal and despite them being extremely busy due to a music event on they were still really professional. The fire was lit and the whole decor was as excellent as the food.
