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.

    We ate in the dining room. Excellent food as was its presentation. The service was also excellent.

    Great food - fish and roast beef - and good service. Fudge desert not as we hoped so we left half of it ! Maybe a clearer description would to have led to us being able to make a better choice ?

    Very long wait for food to arrive - the restaurant was very busy on Saturday lunchtime. Architecture makes the restaurant very noisy given normal levels of conversation going on around.

  • (((** 15 April 2019 by Karen from Mannings Heath

    A warm welcome with toast freely available, comfy furniture, clean cutlery and crockery but only a mediocre breakfast with the black pudding like concrete which when we mentioned it the waitress just said ‘oh ok’.

    Toilets beautiful but very cold and hand dryer is a cold one too brrr. Towels would be nicer.

    The restaurant itself is attractive and there is space between the tables so you don’t feel on top of your neighbours. The choice of meals was interesting. The meal we had was very tasty and well presented. The staff were friendly and approachable.

    Lovely atmosphere, relaxing and comfortable. The food was really good. I had steak and mushroom pie and it was the best pie I’ve eaten out in a pub. Delicious short pastry and tender beef.. I’ll be back .

    Fantastic, do not think we could have been better looked after by the amazing Filameena. Lovely cosy room, attentive service, coped with 6 Adults and 7 kids no bother.
