BELGIAN-INSPIRED BLONDE BEER

It’s time to bring some Belgian-inspired beer to The Bull Hotel. This is unlike no other beer that you would have tasted, an individual within its class…a standout.

A fantastic beer for those looking to expand their beer palate. If you are partial to white wine this could be the beer for you. Pairs really well with our curries and with the whitebait starter.

Tasting Notes: Saison yeast is the star of the show and pairs with European hops to give a fruit and banana aroma. Bitter but fruity, extra pale malt and wheat malt give a sweetness and full body.

NEW FOR 2024

You can have the whole place for you and your party

Book The Bull Hotel entirely for gathering with friends for a reunion, business getaway, holidaying with family, or meeting up to celebrate a special anniversary. With chefs cooking for you plus bar and waiting staff – the whole inn exclusively for your group.

Sleeps 11 couples in double ensuite bedrooms, restaurant, bar, terrace, glasshouse, food, table wine, full English breakfast, late bar, adults only. Available on selected dates. View details here.

FLAVOUR AND QUALITY

The latest menu includes what The Bull does best, dishes that have now become classics thanks to an eclectic range of flavours – from prime English cuts of meat smoked over English oak and carefully-sourced hot smoked salmon to the Korean chicken wings. The half chicken ‘melt like butter’ after 2 hours of the smoking treatment. While our in-house barbecue sauce and tomato ketchup get the smoked treatment.

A 2025 Saturday Wedding

Your wedding day will be glorious with a ceremony in a 300-year old venue followed by timeless pictures in the Garden of England. In The Glasshouse, with its spectacular retractable roof, a wholesome wedding breakfast prepared with supreme quality ingredients will be served alongside a selection of hand-picked wines.⁠

And there is no rush to leave the venue after the evening reception. Don’t forget that you and your guests are staying in our quintessential English inn for the night and will have a freshly cooked English breakfast before the final goodbyes.⁠

What’s even better? The payment plan will be tailored to your needs. A wedding on a Saturday in 2025 for 50 day-guests with all inclusive is quoted at £14,450 if you book until 31st May 2024 (normal price £17,000).⁠

Read more on the dedicated weddings website.

48 HOURS?

Forget the pressure to set up the venue 2 hours before your wedding starts. Forget driving home at midnight on your wedding day. Forget looking for accommodation for your closest ones.

It is included in our wedding packages the use of the venue from 12noon the day before the wedding until 12noon the day after plus one bedroom for the couple and 10 for their guests.

We invite you to our Open Evenings to meet the wedding coordinators and some of our favourite suppliers. Read more on the weddings website.

THE BUTTERY & GLASSHOUSE

Hidden behind the 14th-century The Bull Hotel, forming a unique Kentish courtyard, The Buttery & Glasshouse is totally unexpected, causing that spontaneous first reaction: “Wow!”. Merging contemporary and traditional, highlighting and enhancing the difference in style, era and the materials used in each building, the venue is a source of surprise and admiration.

EVENTS TEAM OF THE YEAR WINNER 2023/2024

The Buttery & Glasshouse impressed the judges: “Demonstrating both a very strong in-house and multidisciplinary team, to ensure that no part of the wedding planning process is left wanting, the Judges praised the Buttery & Glasshouse for its professional collaborative approach to customer care and a real need to ensure that every client’s wedding is the most important for them.”

ROOMS

Stay overnight in one of the 11 boutique ensuite bedrooms and enjoy a farm-house style full English breakfast in the morning. In fact, since The Bull is so cosy and welcoming, why not stay for the whole weekend? There is a variety of individually designed bedrooms, from single rooms to family rooms.

ENJOY THE SURROUNDINGS

The Bull Hotel is an excellent base from which to discover the open countryside and many attractions that Kent has to offer. It is also conveniently located for those making the crossing to/from France, breaking a long journey or wanting to get out of (or into) the city, as London Victoria is just forty minutes by train.
