What a lovely landlady. So helpful and accommodating. I would recommend the bull to anybody who enjoys a relaxed atmosphere in a small town steeped in history. The food is beautifully home cooked and the staff are friendly and inviting. They couldn't do enough for you

No nonsense B&B in de center of Battle, Kent. We visited the hotel with our motorcycles and had pleasant stay there. The bikes could be parked at the back of the B&B. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly. And as said in the title the food is just great, including the full English breakfast.

A traditional inn with exposed stone walls and large inglenook fire place. We have used this inn quite a few times and always found the food excellent with friendly staff. If you appreciate good pub food you will appreciate this venue

The Bull Inn is a joy. Built from the original stones from Battle Abbey, it is everything you hope to find in an English inn - low beams, authentic features, with a feel of antiquity that gives you an experience of it's historic past. The owners are very extremely pleasant and clearly enjoy their work . THE BREAKFAST WAS THE...

The pub is in a wonderful, old building, but I was afraid the decor would be old fashioned (think 1980s not 1680s) but that wasn't the case at all. Our room was really attractive, with exposed brickwork, a wrought-iron bedstead, and we didn't hear any noise from the pub, even though it was a Saturday night. The people who work...

After reading the other reviews on here we were a bit apprehensive about the breakfast (full English or nothing!?) but either the others were unlucky, or The Bull have got their act together big time since those reviews. My gf's continental breakfast was excellent - croissants with 3 very good cheeses (obviously chosen by someone who knows a thing or...

A group of us stayed for the weekend. The day we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The Saturday breakfast was not good. There was no choice, full English or nothing. The toast came in pieces & was impossible to butter. We were out all day & on our return the landlady was very hostile towards...

We have just spent the weekend in the lovely town of Battle and I'm sorry to say it wasn't the case for our accomodation due to the poor host, who was not at all friendly towards our walking group of 10 adults in anyway !! The bar staff were very friendly and helpful and its a such a shame that...

We booked into The Bull Inn after visiting the Abbey and battlefield. We were warmly welcomed, even though the bar was pretty busy and got to see the room before we booked in. After the flea-ridden room we'd ended up in the night before (sight unseen), this was much appreciated. Our room at The Bull was lovely and we both...

“ Take your own multi gang electrical extension, as the sockets are scarce. The room has a slightly tatty, home-spun feel to it that all dos to the charm of staying in a very historic building.”

“The hotel is a very old building. Not a problem for us, but expect an old staircase to the rooms. Our room was at the front of the hotel and as there was no double glazing, there was traffic noise. Again, we were okay with this, but others may want to request a quieter room if available.”
