My wife and I dined one evening at the Bull during a visit to Ticehurst East Sussex and were so impressed with the quality of food and service that we went back again the next day with friends. All the staff were extremely friendly and courteous and it is perhaps unfair to single out any one person. However, 'Poppy' was... More

We were blessed with a beautiful day and a view of the duck pond and the play park. Food was amazing with fish to compared to Moby Dick and an amazing Thai veggie curry. Lovely way to end... More

Literally stumbled across the lovely quant pub whilst out with my husband and parents. It was a nice sunny day and we sat outside for a drink and lunch. The service was very good and the food was lovely too. Couldn't fault it at all and lovely to people watch, who were arriving in cars, on bicycles and walkers too.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bull Inn was built between 1385 and 1425 and is reputed to be one of the oldest dwelling places in the country, but only became a pub towards the end of the 19th century. Set in 4 acres of rolling Sussex countryside, and within easy walking distance of beautiful Bewl Water, the Bull is very popular with walkers, cyclists and fishermen. A magnificent ancient building in a secluded location, the Inn has a wealth of old beams, low ceilings and quarry tiled floors that give it a real air of the traditional English Country pub. ... more   less
