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. Now part of The Barkby Group PLC which includes the Five Alls at Filkins, The Plough at Kelmscott, The George at Burpham and the Queen’s Arms at East Garston. The Bull 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 60 guests. 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.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 £50pp a day for up to five people.
