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.

The food was well presented, well cooked and very tasty. Far too many haricot beans with the confit of duck though! A greater variety of vegetables with this would have been appreciated. The service was good, excellent that all the 8 servings of each course were some of the party being served and the others having to wait. Overall though the service was slightly on the slow side but appreciate that the pub was busy. Would definitely come again.

Excellent ambiance - It was very nice to see a busy locals/community pub (It makes one coming from a small village, from just over the county border, very sad, since we lost our pub and subsequently the heart and sole of the village). Also, good quality food - Thank you.

Our Christmas lunch was the 2nd time we’d eaten at the pub in recent months. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was good. However a few more Brussels sprouts would have been good. And the Xmas pudding could have had more flavour. Still a great meal. Our first visit was late afternoon. This meal persuaded us to book Xmas lunch. Hopefully we’ll be there next Xmas and during the year. Great venue for afternoon lunch.

We really enjoyed ourselves at the New Years Eve Celebration. Fabulous food and great service. Extra food served throughout the evening seemed a bit excessive. The band “whisky sours” were very good the “DJ” section at the end of the evening could have been better. That said we still enjoyed it all immensely.

My friends and i went their for my birthday,& had a really lovely lunch, unfortunately we didn't have time for a dessert, As we had to leave abit earlier then we thought. So the staff kindly made a doggy bag up for me, with a slice of beetroot cake init with a candle aswell, for me to take home.How kind of them to do that, it was a very thoughtful touch. I will hopefully be back soon.

Food and pub are fantastic. Staffs are super friendly and the whole family really enjoyed. Parking is not so great though. Car park is a free style so one car parked three bays...Need to park outside on the narrow street, a bit nightmare to leave.
