I'd like to echo Twojackrussells comments. Danny and Kate are life savers, or should I say pub savers. Back from the brink. Beers lately have gone a bit random and still a work in progress but these two are fabulous publicans who will succeed. Hophead currently the house ale. I miss the Kent pales but they do appear occasionally and its not about what I want ! The Bull is also doing lunchtime food again which is excellent. The ales selection is coming from far and wide and generally very well kept. 5/6 cask. The bottled ales are GreenKing and I don't like them as they use their subsidising power to get publicans to stock their poor imitations for craft beer, but i'm now being picky. 9/10 to these two for putting so much hard work and effort into returning the Bull into a community pub once again.

Garret would be proud. Oakham , Darkstar, Marble, Kent brew ,Titanic and many others on the bar ALL well kept and reasonably priced. The Garden is now looking great and the Kitchen is providing good food. The new owners Danny and Katy have had to dig deep to get this pub back on track but have successfully filled Lynn and Garret boots .... well done!

If i went into a pub and they only had APA and Hophead, I'd be a very happy man! You can get Tribuite and Doombar anywhere...they have it in all the other pubs around... you wont find House (Yet to be named), Oakham Citra or Caveman.. this is a craft ale pub, back from the grave thanks to new manager listening... however, their should be craft darker ales as well.. don't get me wrong... Doombar is fine, but that's it, its just fine... there are so many other darker ales that have soo much more flavor, but their should be something for everyone. I'd like to see a mild now and again. All said its wonderful to see ale drinkers back in. Even drinking Doombar! The quality has been superb. Gerry and Peter are doing a good job and thankfully Lorraine and Joyce, the long serving barmaids are there to make sure the new owners know what we like! Its on the up, its on the way back.. .. (please..).

The Bull is under new management who are trying hard to restore to it's former glory. There is usually a good choice of beer with up to six real ales. Occasionally the range is limited and Hophead is not my favourite. How I wish more pubs would take recommendations from their regular / semi-regular clients rather than assume we particularly like drinking what remains available when the choice is Hophead and American Pale Ale. Most of my friends prefer traditional style ales like Doom Bar which has been very good but runs out - surely there is a message here. Also the wine range is very limited and our wives don't think they get much choice at all! As it is my local I will try to use it more often. I sincerely hope the new management succeed.

Visited this pub a couple of weeks ago nice to see still open had a nice pint of yet to be named house bitter then went on to try Franklins Citra IPA what a great pint of beer would give it 9 out of 10 found out later that Franklins of Sussex brewery now has a new brewer ex Dark Star that why the beer was good. An excellent range of beers.
