At the heart of the picturesque village of Ditchling inside the South Downs National Park, The Bull Ditchling is a stunning 16th-century pub serving modern British flavours. Outside there is a tranquil beer garden with fruit trees and a kitchen garden, while inside the bar serves beers from the pub's very own brewery.

The Bull Ditchling menu crafts beautifully presented dishes that offer bold, modern takes on long standing British favourites, all using ingredients from the pub's own kitchen garden. Small plates to start include wood pigeon with celeriac and pickled wild mushroom, wild larger plate mains feature exotic international influences, seen with the tandoori crusted sea bream with onion bhaji and coconut and coriander chutney.

Pub classics are also served at The Bull Ditchling in Hassocks, including beef and oyster pie, and beer battered fish and chips. On Sundays, enjoy hearty roast dinners with a generous wine list, or try the beers from the pub's own brewery.

Also offering children's menus, The Bull Ditchling is a charming, family-friendly slice of pub tradition with polished modern updates. Plumpton Rail Station is just an 11-minute drive away.

    The food at the bull is ok, ordered the Sunday roast and I had to send meal back twice because the meat was cold, but the service was fab

    Beautiful surroundings, fantastic venue and amazing food. Add on the attentive and friendly staff and you couldn’t ask for more. We will certainly be returning.

    Lovely evening....sat at our favorite table. Delicious dinner and always pleased to see the smiling staff. They work well together and help make the dining experience one we'll travel 30 minutes to enjoy.

    Disappointing. The service was poor, we had to ask for the table to be wiped after the previous diners. The food was mediocre and didn’t arrive together so I had to start eating before my husband’s meal arrived so that it didn’t go cold. I was very disappointed and will not return.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Bull in Ditchling, it was our 4 year wedding anniversary and the service we had and the quality of the food we received made it a special occasion, in particular the duck dish I had was superb. I would say that the dish my wife had could of had a warning about how spicy it was (we didn’t know Harrisa is a chilli paste). I would highly recommend and we will be going back!
