Two rosettes

AA Rosette ratings

The Rosette scheme is a well-known, established grading scheme which successfully recognises cooking at different levels nationwide. Less than 10% of all UK restaurants are awarded with one rosette.

The Loft is currently awarded 2 rosettes for its standards that demand national recognition well beyond our local area. Timing, seasoning and the judgment of flavour combinations is consistently excellent. Cooking is underpinned by the selection and sympathetic treatment of the highest quality ingredients. These virtues will tend to be supported by other elements such as intuitive service and a well-chosen wine list.

Five star
Inn

AA Star ratings

Hotels or guest accommodation assessed by the AA are rated under a set of common quality standards agreed by the AA and the UK tourist authorities (VisitBritain, VisitScotland and VisitWales). The common standards make types of accommodation easy to understand and give you confidence that establishments can meet the standards you require.

The Bull’s accommodation is awarded 5* meaning we offer luxurious accommodation and public areas, a range of extra facilities and a multilingual service. Guests are greeted at the hotel entrance and we offer a high quality menu and wine list.

Cask Marque

Cask Marque

Pubs that join the Cask Marque scheme are visited unannounced by an independent assessor at least twice a year. In the first year, pubs are visited twice in the first three months and in subsequent years they’re visited once in the summer and once in the winter.

The Bull is proud to be a long standing member of the Cask Marque scheme meaning all our cask ales are checked for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste.
