I found the Bull Inn amongst the best pubs in Battle to take a drink and eat. The food was fabulous, plenty of it and tasty. The staff were lovely, pleasant and the entertainment looked good too.

Popped in here for a quick drink, idea was to bounce round the few bars in Battle but ended up staying here for the whole evening. Bar staff were helpful and polite, good choice of drinks for all, good old fashioned pub, was busy but atmosphere was friendly and vibrant. Will be going back soon for sure....

Away with friends for a long weekend, we visited as many places as possible one place being Battle. Went to find somewhere where we could get a roast dinner, we couldn't have found better. The staff were very polite and efficient, there was a lovely log fire burning and a superb turkey roast dinner. I would definitely recommend this place... More

Stayed for 3 nights everything was first class. The staff are very friendly. The pub has a great evening menu with many things suitable for people wanting gluten free. If you are in Battle you must pay it a visit.

Walked in off the street, having stayed in a local hotel. Impressed with variety of beers and knowledgeable staff. Decided to have lunch. Brilliant choice. Autumn menu has wide selection of starters, mains and sweets. Food perfectly cooked promptly served and generous portions. Go there hungry! Meal for two including drinks £40. Will definitely return.
