The Courtyard

The covered and heated Glasshouse at the rear of The Bull Hotel makes a great weather-proof destination, thanks to its retractable arched roof. The courtyard is ideal for drinking & dining. The Bull Menu has a selection of delicious wholesome pub classics. On Sundays, the traditional roast with five options of high-quality British meats is generously served both in the restaurant and courtyard. The courtyard can be hired for private functions, so it’s always best to book ahead if you want to guarantee an outdoor table.



The Buttery & Glasshouse -There’s something about getting married in a quintessentially English inn that ooze indulgence. The Buttery & Glasshouse is the wedding venue at The Bull Hotel, a spectacular venue blending old and new.

Muddy Stilettos Awards

In May 2022, The Bull was nominated for ‘Best Destination Pub’ in the Muddy Stilettos awards! Muddy Stilettos is a Kent based guide, to show all the best places to eat, drink, stay and more!

Thank you to everyone who nominated us, and continues to show support!


Being a free house, the range of drinks is adventurous, dynamic and diverse, focusing on quality and value. Whether you fancy a beer, an ale, an artisan Bourbon or an after-work cocktail, The Bull is stocked with a plethora of interesting tipples to explore. A rotating selection of beers made using traditional methods from independent producers sits beautifully with the modern take on the quintessential British pub.


Stay overnight in one of the 11 boutique ensuite bedrooms and enjoy a farm-house full English breakfast in the morning. In fact, since The Bull is so cosy and welcoming, why not stay for the whole weekend?

There are a variety of individually designed bedrooms, from single rooms to family rooms, there is something for everyone.

Our History

One of the most wonderful things about this historic inn is that you can have everything in the one place – eat, drink, celebrate, sleep.

Since being first licensed by Henry VIII, The Bull has welcomed pilgrims and locals alike. Celebrating local and artisan food and drink suppliers, this free house offers an authentic Kentish hospitality and exceptional British cuisine.
