The Bull is a beautiful 14th century inn with 11 ensuite bedrooms and a very popular restaurant.
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 Mailing, celebrated their victories in the very same spot.
The Bull is an attractive three storey building and residence here offers an insight into quite 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.
We got married here two weeks ago and it was the most perfect day. Leigh-Anne and Hannah helped us every step of the way and helped us with every question and request! The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing – we’ve had so many positive comments from our guests. Thank you to all the staff that helped on the day, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Such a lovely place in a great location. Bedrooms are lovely, bed is divine. Staff are utterly fantastic and engage in conversation! Food is top notch quality. This is my ‘go to’ place when I work in the area as nothing else comes close to it.
I booked the Wine & Cheese tasting evening and a room in the hotel as a birthday treat for my partner. The room was very comfortable, clean and pleasantly decorated. We enjoyed the wine tasting and may have to come back to experience the delights of the smokehouse.

We stayed at The Bull for two nights in July. What a friendly, comfortable inn it is. Our daughter-in-law was so impressed, she is Australian, and loves most things English. The accommodation was lovely and the food was very good. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about what they were serving. I would recommend a stay here to anyone.
Thank you so much for making my stay at the Bull Hotel Wrotham very enjoyable and relaxing. My room was perfect, super meals in your restaurant and all members of staff were very nice and helpful. Thank you again.
We stayed as part of the Gourmet Night package. Food was delicious (especially fish and smokehouse dishes), good selection of craft beers, relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. Room was clean and comfortable. Great value for £119 paid!
