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...

My family and I had an evening meal at The Bull the other day for my partner's birthday. The pub was very dark, so dark in fact that we struggled to read the very uninspiring menu. two of us had lamb which was totally tasteless, my daughter had pasta with pesto from the children's menu which was priced at £8.00....

I had lunch with a friend at The Bull today and actually felt rather sad, having frequented it for many years we were disappointed with both the recent renovations and the food. Any time a very old country pub starts sporting artificial candles you know you are in trouble. The cosy atmosphere has been replaced by inappropriate modern furniture which... More

Lovely and imaginatively decorated rooms, enthusiastic service and good breakfast. Also decent evening meal, comfy bed, large tv and beautiful walks in surrounding area over the Sussex Downs. Good for romantic escape!, and just over an hour from South London.

We stayed in Room 1 just after the refurb and were seriously impressed with the quality and well thought out details. Everything from the lovely linens, thick dressing gowns to small flask of fresh milk in the fridge for the morning drinks impressed. I've stayed in many spa and boutique hotels for alot more money who haven't achieved this standard.... More

An absolutely brilliant weekend. From our arrival to our departure everything was lovely. The rooms was great (not massive but nice enough) and the bar and food was amazing. We ate in the restaurant side on the Friday night, next to the large inglenook fireplace and drank lovely beer (I love Darkstar beer) and wine and ate amazing food. very... More
