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 Bull is a wonderful Inn, excellent rooms, even though it was 30 degrees, the staff done their upmost to keep the room cool by supplying fans. All the staff were exceptional in the service and also so very friendly. Made out stay a very enjoyable experience. The food was excellent with all of us having the rib-eye steak , lovely cut of meat. the local beers were very good and found the overall pricing very good for the value of the rooms and food. Highly recommend The Bull at Ditchling

    This is the first time I have dined here since the refurbishment and I was really impressed by the layout, so much brighter and a lot more space.

    As usual, the service was really good and the meal was excellent. I had the crab rilettes to start followed by the sea bream. There were 9 of us in our group and We all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thank you.

    Nice setting. Overpriced. Waitress was helpful and friendly. Food a little disappointing: gnocchi tasted burnt; chicken was a bit cold when served. Nice wine (but overpriced).
