It has enormous character, with wood burning stoves and open fires, and has always been an extremely popular venue for many years, situated along the High St, right in the midst of the lovely bustling town of Battle, which is full of history and surrounded by some wonderful places to visit.

 It was purchased by its current owners in 2020 to become their first permanent home for their venture The BBQ Project. They have been serving up delicious BBQ food from their restored vintage vans "Joan" and "Marcel" for the previous 3 years, at various festivals and outdoor events. This culminated in being named Grand Finalists in the Streetfood section at the Sussex Food and Drink Awards 2019. Think smoked briskets, applewood smoked ribs, cayenne spice chicken wings, cajun cauliflower burger, with slaw, beans, washed down with a cold beer or a delicious glass of wine. That gives you an idea of the offering from the vans, and our new home at The Bull Inn is going to bring it to a whole new level.

The pub and restaurant have a chilled, modern but cosy vibe, and whilst you sit back and enjoy some of the best BBQ food in Britain, to the backdrop of blues/funk/soul music, washing it down with some of the most divine drinks, you will drift off into a gastronomic bliss!

All our food is freshly prepared, and we always strive to use British sourced meats, products and drinks where possible. All our staff are deeply passionate about what we offer, and are fully trained in all our products. You will be greeted with the warmest of welcomes, and we will go all out to ensure your experience with us is one of the best you have had.
We have worked extremely closely with local farms, brewers, and some of the most exciting drinks suppliers in the country to develop our menus. We hope you agree with our choices.

During 2021 we will be pushing ahead, and renovating the 5 ensuite rooms to provide guests with a sumptuous place to lie their heads after a day exploring Battle, and the surrounding areas, and then gorging on our food and drinks offering.
