EXCEPTIONAL CRAFT BEERS AND WINE LIST
Here at The Bull, being a freehouse, we like to do things a bit differently and hopefully a bit more interesting. The range of drinks is adventurous, dynamic and diverse, focusing in 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.
The Bull was first licensed in 1365 and since then English passion for a drink only got even stronger.
We have stocked artisan and craft beers since 2014. Most of them are being made in London, only twenty miles away – we call that local produce – fascinating, small production and hand bottled beers full of flavour designed to excite and intrigue. And full of and history too!
All the beers are bottled live, never filtered or pasteurised. Our selection of craft beers is constantly changing. Some of them are picked up by Martin himself (it is the only way to get them).
We stock beers for everyone, offering a whole host of aromas, flavours, colours and textures. Everyone can get on that journey of discovery into what beer can be. Temptation is calling…
We love the creativity and amazing tasting notes of beers from Beavertown, Redchurch, Camden Town, Brewdog, Partizan, Titanic, Siren, Lervig, Kernel.
The AA Notable Wine List Award
“Since we took over The Bull in 2007, I have been working hard to build our wine list. This means going to wine tastings, tastings samples I am sent, talking to suppliers, reading about wine, discussing wine with my clients and analysing my favourite restaurants’ wine lists.
Also I have been pushing my boundaries trying completely different wines such as orange wines, volcanic wines and natural wines from either small family run artisan to long-term established large producers.
It is great to receive The AA Notable Wine Award 2021-2022. Considering we are a small family run inn in the country side, being one of the only 5 awarded wine lists in the whole Kent is such an achievement for me!”
We keep all the time:
Two ales – Hop Head from Dark Star Brewery and Red Top from Old Dairy Brewery.
Also two English lagers – Curious Brew from Chapel Down and Hell’s from Camden Town Brewery.
Our unique selection of 4 on-tap craft beers from the UK’s best microbreweries is constantly updated to provide you with new and interesting choices.
Coravin Preservation System
Through an ingenious system where a needle that penetrates the cork can pour the wine from the bottle while filling the void with the heavy noble gases argon. The aroma and flavour-neutral gas protects the wine that remains in the bottle against oxidation. All this happens without the cork being removed. The elasticity of the cork ensures that the hole after the needle closes and the wine can be keep for several months in the bottle.
You can taste a wine without opening the bottle.
This system allows us to serve 31 different wines by the glass. I guarantee that you will find at least a glass of wine you will love at The Bull.
THE OFF-LIST WINE LIST
We have the ‘off-list’ wine list which includes wines that are too good not to buy at least a case! The plan is to sell half and drink the other half. This list is in Martin’s head, so just ask if you are interested. Please take note that most of these are around £50 to £90.
