So-so Food, garden below standards

We went for an Easter lunch to the Bull. The food was OK, however some of the vegetables weren't cooked properly, and the fish was slightly dry. The lady serving us was very friendly though. The garden is spacious and offers nice tables, however, there was a lot of dog poo on the grass - not... read more

Oh my goodness, where to start. Really didn't think pubs like this existed anymore. For those old enough it's like the Berni Inn with a splash of Harvester thrown in for good measure. Food extremly average, and unimaginative. Service so slow and unimpressive. If you fancy a trip down memory lane, for all the wrong reasons, do visit.

Nice old pub with really friendly staff and quick service. Lunch for two for a tenner and they even have Brains on tap. The fact it is reasonably busy at lunchtime speaks buckets for the place

First visit here and was very happy had a two course lunch and it was a bargain yes there are more expensive things but the burgers were very tasty. Nice little pub and if the car parks full there's a pay and display over the road.

We visit the Bull every few weeks for an early evening meal. The food and service is always first class.

we came here as a group of us for a birthday celebration. 7adults and 1 child. The menu had a great variety and the food was delicious. The waiter was very attentive and the service was great. The only issue I had was that they didn't have any duck. For 6pm on a Saturday night I thought it was quite... More

Complete mix up ordering the food and when it came it was abysmal . The Whitebait had been Cremated and ..... I could... More

Visited Otford today. This pub was the one we felt most comfortable with. The others were not open or busy or a bit unwelcoming. This place was friendly. Good food selection. Good wines and beers. Was busy so we had to sit in the garden which was a bit cold but just about ok. Would recommend booking in advance. Food... More
