About Us


The Bull Pen Tearooms was founded in 1993 by Peter and Carmen Welford. It is thanks to them that we are here today! 

The tearooms takes it's name from it's old use... You guessed it, the pen for the farm bull!

To this day, the Bull Pen is independent and family owned.

We hope you enjoy your visit.


House favourites


with figs, walnuts and a delectable mint sauce. A colourful, delicious dish perfect for a hot summer day.

Pear & Roquefort Salad


A classic. Grilled Cheddar, mustard and Newcastle Brown Ale mix, topped with perfectly runny poached eggs on your choice of toast. Served with our house salad garnish.

Buck Rarebit


Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel

Goldstein's Smoked Salmon is some of the best in the country, if not, THE best! Enjoy this favourite of the locals on a soft, toasted bagel and our house salad garnish.

Bull Pen Full English Breakfast

Our take on the British staple. With eggs your way, your choice of toast, sausages from the farm butcher, thick back bacon rashers, top grade vine tomatoes, mushrooms, and of course, it has to be Heinz to top it all off!
