About The Bull

THE BULL INN
The Bull Inn is a Grade II listed building that has been at the heart of local life since the 16th Century, serving an eclectic bunch of customers from local gentry to labourers and, most likely, larcenists!

On the well trodden path from the south coast to London, the Bull was a welcome stopping point before the trudge over the North Downs and still marks a stop-off point for cyclists doing the London to Brighton or Eastbourne routes and local hikers, ramblers and dog-walkers.
Formerly a hotel, The Bull has been operating as an inn for hundreds of years and must have seen its fair share of Limpsfield life, both good and bad! Today, it’s much loved by locals and visitors alike, but still plays a part in many local goings-on!

Until the late 1800s, The Bull was owned by Bushell & Co of Westerham, but has been a free house for many years, supplying many locally brewed beers, particularly those from Westerham Brewery and known for its great food, roaring fire in the winter and friendly atmosphere.

The Bull, c 1915, Limpsfield

The Bull will soon be the venue for Enterprising Limpsfield Ltd, an exciting new venture that aims to provide a community hub to promote local food, drink and other locally-owned small businesses. The new business aims to be open by the early Autumn 2018, following extensive refurbishment.

As part of the purchase by Enterprising Limpsfield Limited, The Grade II listed building has now gained protection as an Asset of Community Value (making it subject to additional protection from development under the Localism Act 2011) and ensuring The Bull Inn will continue to play an important role in Limpsfield for many years to come.

Excellent to have a facility such as this in Limpsfield and enjoy our regular visits. Service is pleasant and, with occasional lapses, very efficient. Food quality tends to vary from the very good to just average, depending on item chosen and how busy the kitchen is. Drinks tend to be on expensive side. Really question its award as being best pub in Surrey but overall it is still very good.

The best meal we’ve had at The Bull, really good, and the service was excellent, not sure if there’s a new team there but it was markedly better this time around.

We had a nice evening but we did experience long waits for our food. I am a Coeliac and discussed my needs before the booking and when I placed my order. The g/f bread (it was lovely though!) arrived when I had almost finished my starter and I was initially served non gluten free fish and chips, despite saying that mine would be g/f and the waiter saying it was. If I hadn't been vigilant and queried what was put in front of me it could have been a huge problem as I am not gluten free by choice. However, the food was lovely and with a bit more experience and more staff the evening would have been perfect. Lots of positive feedback from the others in my party. Thank you to everyone and good luck

Dear Campbell, Thank you ever so much for visiting the Bull and for letting us know about your experience. I am sorry that you had a long wait for food and more importantly that the team were not vigilant with your dietary needs. This has highlighted that further, training is needed and we will endeavour to resolve immediately. We are very excited that our new menu launches on 26 November and during the team tasting sessions we will further reiterate and train the team on allergens. I am pleased to hear that, overall, your party enjoyed the evening with positive feedback. I do hope that we would be able to welcome you to the Bull again soon. kindest regards, James

I feel that the Chef is confused. The food tastes fine[could do with seasoning] but he seems to be obsessed with flowers. The textures of apples with the ham hock terrine was just apple puree[way to much] and sliced and diced apple,not really textures. The Duck main course was nice but the cherry sauce had raspberries in it for some reason and there was way too much purple potato puree. My wife had the Beef carpaccio which just looked confused as it looked like the chef had dropped the shaved fennel on it and there was hardly any beef.The Hake which looked lovely but there was way too much of the beans and it was very dry[needed less beans and more sauce] I think that you need a rethink of your food as it was NOT up to the standard of Surrey pub of the year. Think you need to try much harder.
