This is a pub I used to frequent a lot, in a lovely location. Disappointing to find that, although the food is ok, it is very expensive for what you get and the staff were particularly condescending and unhelpful.

This is one of those "out of town pubs" for Brightonians, with bustling efficient staff. Personally I am disappointed that Harvey's ale is no longer available. Food is very good but at the upper end of the price range, portions are concise. Always a good atmosphere though.

We were staying in Ditchling and went to The Bull for a meal on our last night. It's very dark in there and we had to use the candle to see the menu but the service, fire and meal were good ( if a little pricey at £22 for steak).

We recently stayed at The Bull in Ditchling, an idyllic Sussex village. The rooms are very stylish and well appointed. Our room (2) was small, and as it faces onto the main crossroads in Ditchling, a bit noisy. If you want to get an early night, don't bother - as you can hear the conversations in the pub below very... More

We loved our weekend at the Bull. We had room 4: a large room with a HUGE bed, and sofa - overlooking to road but no need to worry on noise as it's a quiet village. The bathroom is modern white and bright with a two person shower and rainfall shower head ( although if you are a bit taller... More

My boyfriend and I live in london and wanted a night away to relax during the bank holiday. We weren't disappointed. We cycled down from london and arrived at 2.45pm. A really welcoming lady showed us a storage place to keep our bikes for the night which is locked up at night and then up to our room. We were... More

We stopped here for dinner one evening after a walk on the downs and were not disappointed. The menu was interesting.... I went for cod with carrot & fennel mash, with samphire. Perfectly cooked & delicious, washed down with a nice chilled glass of sauvigion blanc. The bar staff were friendly & welcoming. It was a quiet Monday eve so... More

The bull is a lovely quaint put in Ditchling. Unfortunately it's food has gone down hill for a still inflated price. Real shame as we used to enjoy our regular stops in this pub. I told staff I was very disappointed with the very average food and were not even given an apology so they get a zero for customer... More

The backdrop of picture post-card Ditchling village no doubt underpins the fat premiums this pub charges for its humdrum bar meals. Fair enough, but when one of our mains turned out to be little more than a salad-in-a-bag, we complained - only to be confronted by a snooty manager who implied that those looking to fill their faces would be...
