The Bull Hotel has catered to the needs of passing travellers and locals alike for over six hundred years. It has appealed to those in search of rest, fortification and good company, providing a quiet, tranquil respite from the troubles of many an age. In the picturesque village of Wrotham, the current owner, Martin Deadman, looks to continue this tradition.
At The Bull accommodation is cosy, clean and comfortable and though the 2AA Rosette restaurant has earned praise from the national press, the service here is friendly, the food is without pretention and the atmosphere is relaxed.
A rich sense of history and nostalgia pervade The Bull. Indeed its business dates back to 1385 and records show the inn’s first license in 1495. Pilgrims journeying to Canterbury would take refuge at The Bull and Second World War fighter pilots, from the nearby bases of Biggin Hill and West Malling, celebrated their victories in the very same spot.
The Bull is an attractive three storey building and residence here offers an insight into quiet country living. The 14th century Inn has been restored to accentuate its period detail, such as the original exposed oak beams and an Inglenook fireplace. War-time memorabilia pays homage to the locals of old and their victory stamps are still evident on the restaurant ceiling. There is an atmosphere of relaxed, inviting warmth and guests are always received with a smile.
