The bull Inn

Barton Mills, Suffolk

EXCITING NEWS!!!!

We are now taking reservations for tables (up to 6) INSIDE as well as our stunning courtyard & heated cabins from Wednesday 19th May!!! We are still restricted on space with social distancing so get booked in ASAP!!!

As always we will keep space for walkin guests too each day – for drinks only or food.  This means our legendary Fillet Steak Tower you’ve all been asking for will be back too!!!  To maximise space – cabin bookings are for 6 guests – if you book for 6 and show up with less guests you could be seated elsewhere.  

We are going to try and stick with no deposits but if people are disrespecting of this and don’t show or show up with less guests we will need to ask for deposits during busy times.  We literally cannot wait to see the place rocking again – like we all know and love.  

Please email reception@bullinn-bartonmills.com or DM on Facebook to get booked in. Phone calls also taken but email/ messages preferred while on skeleton team 01638 711001

We were invited to the Bull Inn by some family living nearby to Barton Mills. I had read reviews and was looking forward to it. We booked a table in the restaurant. The service from start to finish was impecable, our servers were polite and professional. The food was excellent. They clearly have a master chef in the kitchen. I’m pleased to say that the Bull Inn has lived up to its excellent reputation and we will definitely return with more family and friends. Via Google

This pub was very warm and inviting. I had the creamy chicken curry and my husband had the sea bass with mash. Both dishes were outstanding and well presented. Great music and wonderful atmosphere. Children are welcome with a children’s menu. They are a great location for party’s. The Bull Inn has a dining room along with hotel rooms to rent. Via Google Reviews

Great food and friendly staff. We took our four legged friend there and had no problem. We sat outside as dogs are not allowed inside and had a pleasant lunch. The have a nice fire place with a good atmosphere through the night. Kids must behave and cell phones are asked to be silent. Great place to have a drink
