The Bull is a delightful hotel of Cotswold stone with characterful, architectural features. Award-winning head chef, Sebastian Snow, also of the multi-award winning Five Alls at Filkins and The Plough at Kelmscott, took on the lease of The Bull in September 2016 and has created a new foodie haven with warm and welcoming spaces to relax and unwind.
History of The Bull
Dating from the 15th century, The Bull is made up of two neighbouring pubs, The Bull and The George, which were later joined together. The Bull was originally a Monk’s Chanting House, and in the 18th and 19th centuries a famous coaching inn on the London to Gloucester turnpike road, with stabling for 30 horses. A secret tunnel was recently discovered, leading from the hotel to the medieval church of St Mary’s nearby. The George was once the town’s post office, and later, a pub serving land workers.
