Fine for lunch

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... read more

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 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

We visited Otford to have a poke about in some of the shops and to find somewhere for a light lunch. We were not disappointed with our choice. The pub itself is in pretty good condition, nice ambience and pretty busy for a mid-week lunchtime. The waitresses were friendly and provided a good service. The choice of food was enhanced... More

We visited The Bull one very cold February day and were greeted by the warmth of a real fire. Excellent choice of menu, every price available, so you could spend exactly what you liked. The service was good and so was the food. This was not our first visit and we will certainly be returning soon.

This was our third visit to the Bull within three months and we have a wonderful experience on every occasion. Although midweek and not very busy in the pub we had made a booking, just in case. We were welcomed by staff and given a choice of tables. The staff were polite, attentive and allowed us our own privacy whilst... More
