Very good food. Very nice location and service. But parking was a bit hard even with two nearby parking lots.

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.

    My partner -Kevin Burnham emailed The Bull on Saturday evening after our visit to provide feedback following our meal -he is yet to receive a response, which is some what disappointing.

    We booked a table at the Bull, which is very easy to do through the website. We had breakfast. The food & coffee was fantastic, served promptly. We will definitely return again soon.

    Great choice of beer and a nice buzzing atmosphere

    The bookable restaurant area is very well set up, comfortable chairs and large tables, plenty of room. The service was excelleny - nothing was too much trouble. We only had two quibbles: 1) the barmaid who poured our beer charged us for the wrong bitter - a more expensive one - but the waiter was happy to correct the error when we noticed it on the bill. 2) All of our frites arrived pale and undercooked, and had to be sent back to the kitchen. They were fine when they came out again, but.....

    Good but nothing special. Fish portion was extremely small but tasty. We also had to wait 45' for our dishes

    The food was very average. We were given the wrong pudding and the details on the menu. did not match the food when it came.

    The staff where fab and really lovely, it was a shame the food did not match up to a excellent standard.
