The Bull Inn is a traditional English country pub & kitchen nestled in the heart of the picturesque West Malling. We take pride in our carefully selected choice of mainly local real ales and homemade seasonal food. Whether you are sampling our large selection of real ales in the main bar or a relaxing with a Sunday roast in our recently refurbished restaurant area, we're sure you won't be disappointed. We have beer festivals through the year promoting local and beers from around the country. Also we have a new addition of live music on every first Saturday of the month.The Bull Inn strives to keep to the tradition of the English pub alive by offering a homely and relaxing atmosphere. Being a freehold pub we are not tied to any large companies who command how to run our pub from a head office. The pub is run by locals who listen to the needs of the local community. We are here to deliver the needs of our customers with the utmost quality and service.
