The Bull has been crowned the "'Britain's Best Freehouse' at the 2018 Great British Pub Awards. This stylishly-converted British pub is set in the heart of Ditchling village.
This 450 year old grade listed inn has been sympathetically restored with open fires, cosy corners, bare floorboards, scrubbed tables and candlelight. With a choice of three bars and dining areas, luxurious bedrooms and a huge garden you will not be disappointed.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff will find you a table or guide you to the bar if that's your preference. Here they keep 5 cask ales, including 'Bedlam' from their very own brewery along with 8 independent craft beers and over 20 wines by the glass.
Sussex farms and estates provide the kitchen brigade with fresh local produce, along with ingredients grown in the pubs own kitchen garden. The kitchen serves lunch and supper and the creative British menus change daily.
Upstairs the bedrooms are renovated to the highest standard, voted in the UKs top 10 by the Sunday Times. Luxurious 6ft beds with crisp Egyptian cotton sheets, deep sofas, big TVs, and music systems. In the bathrooms enjoy rain showers, sumptuous towels and their own organic range of bathroom products.
A perfect retreat for visitors to the South Downs National Park. Walks provided at the bar will take you beyond the village up onto the hills of Ditchling Beacon, and Brighton is just 15 minutes away by car.
