Fantastic lunch at The Bull! We were here for my wife’s birthday last weekend, with our 12 year old son. We arrived to a cosy and buzzing atmosphere and had a relaxed drink at the bar (a top quality G&T with local gin, and a superb real ale). We were then shown to our table and were very well looked after. The food was superb, the service excellent and the wine spectacular. Martin, the owner, clearly takes his selection/ sourcing of ingredients and products very seriously and it certainly pays dividends. This is London quality dining, but in a superb Kent setting. Many thanks for a fantastic afternoon!

We settled on the Bull for our wedding venue after visiting on a ‘wedding open day’. This is where we first met Leigh Anne & Elaine (both are TOTAL stars!). We settled on the venue quite quickly, the overall ‘cosy’ feel of The Buttery, the previous reviews, the food (oh my goodness ……. the food!) all gave us the feeling that this was the place for us – and how right we were. Leigh Anne and Elaine handled everything in the run up to the day with total professionalism and a very reassuring calmness. Following our ‘taster meal’ we opted for the smokehouse menu – we still have people telling us just how good it was a month later! Come the day itself Elaine and Co had dressed The Buttery which looked beautiful and any concerns we had about the changes from wedding service setting to dining hall to evening function room became a distant memory, we still truly don’t know how Elaine and her team did it so well in such a short time. We had 40 family and friends during the day and another 50 in the evening, The Buttery was the perfect size and setting for every aspect of the day. I can’t sing any louder about the whole package! We used Nicola Dawson as our photographer and Phillip Harvey (20:20 Sounds) for the evening disco. Both were recommended by The Bull at the open days. Nicola is fantastic and Phil had the whole place jumping for the duration of the party in the evening! If you want somewhere charming, cosy and a little different, for your wedding day, book The Bull, sit back and relax – you’ll be in VERY good hands!! We both really do wish we could do it all over again!

The food was absolutely amazing! Definitely would go back! Slightly pricey but its worth it! Went for my mums 40th birthday and they were so good with making her feel special and sorting out a dessert and candles! Stunning food. Would recommend to anyone!

It was a birthday lunch. Sat out in the new courtyard. It was lovely and sunny but we decided to take coffee inside where it was slightly cooler. We thought the food was excellent, the red wine delicious . Definitely a great place for a special occasion.
