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.

We had a fabulous evening, had a great welcome when first arrived, service thereafter was excellent, friendly and timely, food was very good, well presented on the plate and hot and all dishes arrived together. Such a big difference from our last visit pre Xmas ... will definitely be back soon.

Sue and I, both in our 70s, have dined out a lot over the years, so we have much to comare with. Our dining experience on Friday night was truly fan-tas-tic! All the dishes were prepared with quality ingredients and beautifully cooked and presented with a truly unique "signature" style. We look forward to our next visit. Regards, Chris Cartwright.

Lovely pub and good range of food and drinks. The rating is 4 on food and drinks because £3.60 for a 200ml bottle of coke is exorbitant and seems to penalise the non-drinker.

It was a pleasant experience spoilt only by your reservation web site requiring me to vacate the table after 90 minutes. As the pub was virtually empty this struck me both before and after as unnecessarily offensive and certainly far from welcoming

Beautiful Sumac Chicken & the celeriac & apple soup wasn't half bad either. Service delightful. Shame about the bigoted old timers on the next table.

The service was very friendly, but very slow considering there weren't that many customers. This is our second visit and, again, the food was very hit and miss. Some dishes are just overcomplicated e.g. the sea bass, which should have been the star on the plate but was put on top of a mass of peas and creamy sauce. Keep it simple. Drinks were nice and well served.

Family lunch for eight people. Very high end food for a pub, not the normal offering. Everyone agreed all of their dishes were delicious. Combined with a great wine list and personable, efficient service. Would highly recommend.

The food was lovely but the service was terrible. It was 45 minutes before the drinks arrived but they got the order wrong. It was another 15 minutes and after the 3rd attempt that we all had the drinks we ordered. I expect we will try again as the location is very convenient for us and we would like the Bull to succeed. However they do need to sharpen up their act on the service.
