Bull, Tunbridge Wells

Our food and drinks

Having cooked at some of London’s top restaurants, including The Ivy, Sketch and Canteen, Head Chef and Landlord Alex now brings his passion for fabulous food to The Bull.

Among the best pubs in Tunbridge Wells for food, The Bull combines classic country pub cuisine and daily changing set menus, all freshly crafted from local seasonal produce. The set menus are posted daily on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook, below is a sample only.

Food here is very popular, so booking is highly recommended and due to staff and table limitations we are unable to accomodate tables over 4 covers without advanced booking (also deposits are required for tables on Sundays over 5 covers due to false bookings/no shows). The traditional Sunday roast, in particular, is a real hit with local foodies, and is often booked up weeks in advance - so do try to book as early as possible to avoid missing out.
