Lovely friendly pub and good food.

Popped in here as first pub we found in Battle and it was tipping down. Found a nice warm welcome and our dog was allowed in the bar area. Ordered various filled deli rolls and a burger all of which were well prepared and tasty, delivered to the table promptly and by friendly helpful staff. Locals... read more

Ran in by accident to get out of rain, stayed for dinner and were very pleasantly surprised. Fantastic atmosphere , great service , bar had an exceptional selection of wine and beer, and the food was excellent. T-bone steak was cooked to perfection, local favorite and can totally understand why.

Had a great night! Food was good and lots to choose from, both from the standard menu and the specials on the chalk boards. Plus it was a Friday night and they had an acoustic Irish singer - so we really enjoyed the live music.

I depends on what you want. The food was OK, and edible. We waited half an hour for our meal. Mine was supposed to come with with veg, and there was none. I did the usual English thing and didn't complain. The waiters were nice enough. No apology though for late food, and we weren't the only ones. Won't be... More

What can I say about this pub? Well kept ale on pump, including an exclusive one. Great food, the sort that makes you want to sit and relax afterwards because it is so fresh and filling. The staff even changed a barrel because punters were asking for it despite being busy. (Most pubs would wait till it was quiet). Staff... More

Having tried lunch elsewhere which was a shocking affair, we were so grateful to find the Bull serving food at 3pm. The menu had a good core selection really heightened by the specials board which had a great selection of hot and cold. Having chosen we were pleased with the time it took for what can only be described as... More

We tried every pub in the area to obtain Sunday dinner after 19:00. We parked in Battle and walked the high street till we found the Bull Inn, where Sunday Dinner was still being served. We ordered two Roast Pork Dinners, which were served within a reasonable period, consisting of pork, roast potatoes, 2 other vegetables and a Yorkshire Pudding.... More

Popped in here with little expectation after a visit to the Abbey and found it very welcoming. The bar staff were helpful, there was a good selection of beers and the menu was varied. The food we ordered was delivered promptly and was very tasty.

After a very tiring day last Monday we came home and wanted to find somewhere to eat at the last minute. Everywhere was shut and by 8.15 we called into the bull as the last chance to be greeted by a smiling and welcoming girl who said no problem and showed us the varied menus. The steak and mushroom pies... More

We were in the area for a few days and came across the Bull Inn as it looked like it had a good menu and reputation. Our plan for the day was to have a lightish lunch and then a proper main meal in the evening in Hastings. There were 4 of us and a decided to have the Ploughmans... More
