The Bull at Benenden

The Street, BENENDEN, TN17 4DE

Set in a lovely village in the Kentish Weald, The Bull dates back to 1601 and overlooks the village green. Hard-to-miss features include the unusual chinoiserie windows, the huge brick inglenook fireplace, the rounded wooden bar, and the antique furniture collection. Dark Star, Harvey's and Larkins breweries man the pumps, with Biddenden's own Bushels cider also ready for duty. The traditional pub menu offers scampi and chips in a basket; a hearty ploughman's; steak of the day; and Mrs Bull's home-made pies and suet puddings with a top, bottom and side. Mr Bull lends his name to a range of burgers, including Moroccan spiced lamb; chickpea and bean; and American beef with Monterey Jack cheese. For children there's wholetail scampi, home-cooked ham with free-range eggs, and pasta pomodoro. Colouring pens and paper, and high chairs are also provided. Outside is a 'secret' garden.
