BullWith a main street running through the village, located with a few small shops and places to visit such as the Henry Moore foundation, and of course the Bull in Much Hadham, which is the (in our eyes) the heart of the village, with a picturesque indoor dining area with traditional bar often sporting a lively atmosphere with an open fire brings the village together providing a communal and social area for both family and friends. This is especially true in the summer with a beautiful open field and outdoor dining area a with a small children park, perfect for a family outing!
