Had the occasion to visit the Bull at Otford recently on my birthday. Having been there before I found a nice pleasant atmosphere and good food, reasonably priced and friendly and attentive service. Would definitely go again

Lovely pub and the food is good particularly the fish and chips. Outside is really nice in the summer.

First visit to The Bull for many years. Used Tesco Clubcard vouchers and was pleased with both food and service (especially after reading some of the reviews beforehand). I had a very good steak and my wife strongly recommended the Brewers Chicken. Only criticism would be that at the end of the evening most of the staff disappeared and the... More

Well if you wonder how not to run a pub/restauarant then this would be it. Not been to Otford for a few years but passing through on a Saturday evening so thought would give it a go. Terrible service, slow and almsot rude. Didnt know anything about food or drinks on offer. The food was totally over priced and tasteless,... More

Our waitress seemed to be rushing around from one part of the restaurant to another, but made our trip enjoyable and had a bit of a joking side to... More

A lovely cosy pub, as soon as I walked in I loved the decor and the warm atmosphere. The food was excellent the best roast I've had in a while,all proper home cooked roasties and generous veg. The kind of place to come in out of the cold from. Defo be back at Xmas.

Not visited for while but received loch fynne 33% off food vouchers which can be used in chef and brewer pubs. So dropped in without reservation on a Friday night looking for table for 2. Place was rammed - completely full and we were not the only people waiting. Staff could give no indication even as to when we could... More

Menu looks nice, but when food arrives it's poor to average. eg Fish dry, everything tasteless and bland.
