The Bull Hotel, Wrotham

Historic Kentish Inn with delicious menu and comfortable rooms - perfectly located for exploring the North Downs and Kent.

Weekend Escapes

If you are looking for a delicious Sunday lunch, a country pub with stunning al fresco dining or a venue for a mini-break then we may have just unearthed the perfect destination! The Bull Hotel in Wrotham is a family run, historic Kentish Inn (having been first licensed by Henry VIII).

It is set in a great location for exploring Sevenoaks, North Downs and the surrounding areas with easy access to motorways (across Kent and even towards France!). The pretty village of Wrotham is just 40 minutes from London Victoria by train (from Borough Green Station) and is near many local National Trust sites such as Ightham Mote, Knole, Chartwell and Emmets Garden.


With a cosy country vibe, the restaurant at The Bull is one of the few 23 restaurants in Kent that has won the 2 AA Rosette accolade as well as being listed in the prestigious Michelin Guide 2018. A classic English menu, think hearty classics such as delicious dry aged Yorkshire ribeye steak with chips or haddock fish and chips. For something lighter there is also an Asian leaf mixed salad with mint, feta and lemon dressing.

The Sunday Roast menu offers four different options of roast and if you have space (go on then!) try sticky toffee pudding or a summer fruit pavlova. There is an interesting and varied wine list at The Bull (this even received The AA Notable Wine Award 2018-2019) and a selection of cigars (apparently very popular with wedding guests!).

Barbecue fans will be excited to hear about the new Smokehouse at The Bull, courtesy of a specialist Ole Hickory Pits wood-burning smoker (the only one in the whole of Kent!). This cooks the meat low and slow for hours using a secret combination of carefully selected woods, deepening the flavour, leaving it moist and butter soft.

We love the recently renovated courtyard at the rear of The Bull Hotel. There is a gorgeous covered and heated Glasshouse with retractable arched roof, sliding doors, sleek glass and cool metallics. Perfect for enjoying a meal or drinks with friends outside come rain or shine! The courtyard can be hired for private functions and weddings, so always wise to book ahead if you’d like to eat outside.


Recently refurbished, The Bull Hotel has stunning fireplaces, beams and oak floors. All eleven rooms have been individually designed with fabulous wall papers, luxurious accessories and comfortable bedding. All have en-suite facilities, central heating, TV, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee facilities. There are four-poster, king size, double, twin and single rooms and we like the sound of the cooked to order breakfast! The Hotel even recently won Series 13 of Chanel Four’s ‘Four in a Bed’.


There is always something going on at The Bull. Do keep an eye on the Hotel’s ‘What’s On‘ page for live music, art exhibitions and news. The Buttery & Glasshouse at the rear of The Bull Hotel is a stunning addition to the hotel and the perfect venue for weddings and private events.
