We have stayed in the Bull on several occasions in the past and have always enjoyed the vibrancy of the place and the quality of the rooms. But oh what a difference since the new owners have arrived. The bar area, which appears to have been refurbished, has absolutely no atmosphere whatsoever, the staff are confused and leaderless and the rooms are abysmal. The furniture is tired and the level of cleanliness well below that which we have experienced before. The shower, over the bath had mould growing along the sealant which the application of just a simple domestic cleanser would have resolved if the cleaning staff could have been bothered.
The food was mediocre in the extreme, the duck spring rolls being perhaps the worst we've ever had and generally the offerings were poor.
All in all a very disappointing experience and one that I would not wish to repeat.
It is perhaps worth noting that a previous reviewer who gave the place a 5* star review in April claimed the pub was a 20 minute walk to the Brighton Seafront. It is not. Google Maps suggests its 5 hour walk as its 16 miles away!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A lovely old country pub ideally situated in a picturesque village in the heart of East Sussex, right on the A272. Under new management as of the beginning of April, we have recently undergone a refurbishment and have also taken on a new Head Chef. Serving a new, re-vamped menu and a large selection of fine wines and ales makes us a great stopping place for any occasion.In addition we have eight rooms, all equipped everything you need for a comfortable and peaceful night's rest should you find it hard to leave at the end of the night! ... more less
