After sunning ourselves in the typical British weather, in what seemed like very limited sunshine this summer whilst cheering on Team GB in the London 2012 Olympic Games, which, I think we all will agree, were amazing, it seems the summer season is quickly coming to an end. However, here at The Bull Hotel we are in the full swing of planning all the upcoming events.

My Sarova adventure – The Bull

Posted by Evi Karmou on 25th January, 2012

Hello everyone! My next Sarova adventure was at the Bull in Gerrards Cross! Located in the charming town of Gerrards Cross, close to London, it is a perfect venue for meetings, and corporate or private events. The Bull used to be an old traditional English coaching tavern, and it still has the same charm and cosy feel. The best feature of the Bull is its lounge/ bar area, which looks over its beautiful gardens. I could sit there all day with my book chilling and drinking coffee! In the spring and summer, a BBQ in the gardens is a must!...
