Inspired by best of British

Packed with tantalizing aromas that fill the restaurant, the options of classic pub favourites, wholesome dishes, popular smokehouse nibbles and burgers will mesmerise you. The traditional Sunday Roast with 5 options of roasts with its famous sticky gravy is a family favourite.

A winning combination

The winning combination of wholesome and quality ingredients with the best British produce plus the modern cooking techniques that we use here at The Bull is producing hearty delicious dishes.


Our specialist Ole Hickory Pits wood-burning smoker (the only one in the whole of Kent!) cooks the meat low and slow for hours using a secret combination of carefully selected woods, deepening the meat’s flavour, leaving it moist and butter soft. Inspiration from the USA meets the English passion for smokehouse.


Whether from our deeply committed local farmers or premium suppliers further afield, the quality of the meat we serve is supreme. Then we age, rub, brush, marinate, grill, smoke the meat to ramp up the flavour, add moisture and trap the smoke flavour. The menu is a festival of high quality meat cooked to perfection using traditional smoking and barbecue techniques.
