The portions are also very generous, with the large 12" pizzas being large enough for 2 people, or 1 very hungry person!

Don't forget the specials board too!The spacious & beautiful beer garden is an ideal space to dine al fresco during the summer months or just to relax & enjoy a cold pint of beer, glass of wine or soft drink in. There is also a children's play area which the kids can enjoy whilst the parents sit back & rest. In the winter, the log fire helps to keep the insides of the pub cosy.There is also a skittle alley & function room available for adult and children’s parties, gatherings for family and friends, club and business meetings, christenings, weddings and wakes. Mother and toddler groups can also be accommodated during lunchtimes. Complete with its own music system, private garden and patio area and can be hired as room only, or with the skittle alley and buffet menu.

A group of 10 of us went on a Sunday (pre booked) and were seated quickly and drink orders taken and delivered promptly. Unfortunately is was raining pretty hard and the rain came through the beams near one of our party and she got pretty damp! We were unable to be moved as the restaurant was full which was a shame as our party member just got more soggy! The food was okay, seeing as it's supposed to be a 'pizza pub' the pizza's weren't actually anything to rave about, they were just okay. One of our party had the salmon which was overlooked and the potatoes which came with it, undercooked. Another member had the chilli which was apparently very good. The puddings were also rated as good by those that had them. A mixed bag over all, good service and okay food.

Had lunch here with family. Found the service very slow considering it was quiet. We ordered pizzas but quite honestly they were poor. The base wasn't a pizza dough the edges were burnt and the quality of the ingredients were below average. Those that ordered fizzy drinks all complained that they left a funny taste in the mouth. Also the place could also do with a big clean the entrance to the pub is filty cobwebs and dirt everywhere and inside dead wasps everywhere. Had visited as locally it has good reputation but personally thought it was poor value for money and the food is very over rated

This pub is a few miles north of Henfield and to be honest if I hadn't been recommended to it I might have given up looking for it as it wasn't where I expect it to be! It is well worth a visit, the list of pizza choices is endless and puts pizza chains to shame with their generous and varied toppings. They also offer gluten free pizza bases which is a bonus. If you don't fancy a pizza the salads are wonderful. They also have a daily specials board. I had the brie and bacon salad which I thoroughly enjoyed. My daughter had the chicken and bacon salad which looked equally good, the rest of the family had a variety of pizzas which they enjoyed. The portions are very generous and if you can't manage to finish you will be provided with a doggy bag.
I will definately recommend The Bull to friends and it won't be long before I go back again. Go on treat yourself you won't be disappointed.
Ps if you are a Harveys fan,they serve it here.

You would of thought leek and potato soup would be homemade and full of leeky flavour. How you can serve something so tasteless and stodgy is beyond me. My view is it was a packet mix as there were lumps of congealed flour stuff, also feels like it was MSG laden.
Other thoughts, fries that were stuck together suggesting they were reheated. Light airy bread for a ploughmans, and there was most definetly not a wide selection of real ales(but they do Harveys which was fresh so a positive) I could go on.

Visited The Bull Inn for lunch today. This was our first visit. The pub is spacious with a lovely garden. There is a great function room with a bowling alley, ideal for parties. The bar was well stocked with a good choice of real ales. We hadn't planned to visit The Bull Inn today but I'm so glad we did. There is an impressive lunch menu with choices for everyone and a tempting range of specials on the board. We had visited to try their home made pizza. The Bull offers a really wide selection on their menu. For starters we had cheesey garlic bread and dipping bread with balsamic vinegar and oils. Generous portions and the dipping bread was warm home baked Italian style bread. Thanks to a previous Trip Advisor review, we decided to order the regular size pizzas. The larger size are definitely for sharing! Delicious pizzas with homemade bases and delicately flavoured with fresh herbs, our only regret was we couldn't manage dessert. Great pub, great food, warm welcome.. We will definitely return. Thank you.
