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 Inn is now owned by over 250 local and like-minded shareholders and following extensive refurbishment opened in November 2019. During our first year of opening, we were proud to have been awarded Surrey Life ‘Pub of the Year’ and our ‘pub-hub’ is a lively and fun place to spend time with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues.

The community hub promotes local food, drink and businesses and offers activities and events covering a diverse range of areas including well-being, education and our kitchen team are well-known for providing interesting and delicious seasonal menus. Our Sunday roasts are fast becoming renowned in the area.

Our enterprising locals have ensured that The Bull Inn will continue to play an important role in Limpsfield for many years to come. If you are interested in becoming part of the team or would like to invest, please email [email protected]

I have been to The Bull quite a few times before lockdown & have always been impressed by the food, service & setting. However, I think during our recent visit I felt a bit let down by the temporary Latino tapas menu. I think the food was substandard, in particular the tacos which were really thick & quite dense, definitely not the usual standard I was use too from previous visits. Although I was disappointed by the food on this visit (& my ratings are purely based on this one visit) I would still go back when the main kitchen & usual pub menu is back. The staff were very friendly & were quick to respond when an error had been made on our bill.
