 What the judges said about us...


“The judges felt that The Bull was the perfect boutique venue, offering a dedicated team, award-winning food and wonderful flexibility - a truly bijou venue”.

 Judges also loved The Bull’s history and the dedication of its family-run team in striving to make every wedding day truly special.

The Venue

The Bull Hotel is a unique 600 year old coaching inn situated in the charming village of historic Wrotham, Kent.  The Bull boasts charm and character which creates the perfect venue for intimate and bespoke weddings. Our delightfully restored 14th Century Buttery provides an ambient setting for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception. 

The Ceremony

We are very excited to launch our new outdoor licensed wedding venue, The Courtyard. The Courtyard is an outdoor ceremony space with a stunning fern backdrop - a romantic and intimate setting which is extremely versatile. The Bull also offers The Buttery, a historic barn style building full of charm and character, with exposed beams and original stone walls. The Buttery flows out onto the veranda and Courtyard; where guests can enjoy reception drinks after the ceremony with a stunning backdrop ideal for photographs. The Buttery and The Courtyard are blank canvases where couples find the freedom to dress and decorate according to their own personal style and vision.

Each wedding here is unique and personal. Our coordinators work closely with the couples to tailor an individual and personalised day. The wedding team are passionate about every part of the planning process from the first visit through to the big day itself. 

Our eleven newly refurbished boutique bedrooms are spacious and light with original features. The stylish Bridal Suite is a wonderful space for the bridal party to relax, pamper and prepare for the day ahead.

Award Winning Food

The Bull offers delicious award winning food, fine wines and a welcoming and friendly service. The wedding menus are carefully designed by our Michelin accredited kitchen team. We offer a roast dinner as our traditional wedding breakfast but we also offer a barbecue-style smokehouse meal for the unorthodox!

Excellent Value, Venue, Staff, Food, day
Venue Service

By Janice and Paul Shead, on 03 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2018

From the very beginning the Bull Team were brilliant, we didn't have a clue where to start but they carried us right through. One massive relief for us was that they quickly realised we had no appetite for decorating the venue. Like the perfect hosts, they went the extra mile, offering to decorate for us and at NO extra cost. WOW that turned out amazing. They went out of their way to make it perfect by getting heaters and screening so we could use the outdoor space effectively. Everyone commented on how lovely the room looked. The Bull Team worked behind the scenes to quietly make the necessary changes to the layout throughout the day. From Ceremony to night time layout with a dance floor which went down a treat. We decided we didn't want a traditional meal and the Bull offered a Smoke House Barbecue. Absolutely excellent food was dished up and everyone couldn't rate it highly enough. There was plenty as well and I know a number of guests went up for seconds! The vegetarians were catered for to a very high standard and loved it too. The Bull were able to suggest some lovely canapés and these helped as the speeches were longer than expected. The accommodation at the Bull was lovely and the Bridal Suite had plenty of room for makeup artists, bridesmaids and Mother In Laws to be LOL. The Breakfast the next morning was excellent and the Bull tweaked the set menu to accommodate the guests dietary needs which again was a winner.

me and my new wife fell in love with the Bull Inn Hotel from our very first visit on an open day in May last year. We loved adaptability, the style and the staff all seemed ready and willing. Leading up to the wedding we found the staff to be extremely accommodating, in fact they simply couldn’t do enough and we never heard the words, sorry, or, no. Nothing was too much trouble. The wedding it’s self was pretty stress free due to the rigorous planning by the team at the Bull Inn. We had an absolutely brilliant time and enjoyed every second of our wedding, in large part thanks to Leigh Ann and Elaine. I would highly recommend this venue for its staff, it’s location and for a stress free wedding. Thank you so much

Rainy day wedding

By Paul & Denise Brooks, on 07 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2018

We had an amazing wedding day at The Bull - despite the weather being against us. The Bull staff worked tirelessly to make it all run smoothly.

So accommodating!
Venue Service

By Sarah, on 25 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2018

We didn’t want the conventional/traditional wedding and The Bull gave us everything we wanted and more! Elaine and Leigh-Anne really took the time to understand us as a couple and what our aims were. We had the best day and wish we could do it all over again!

A day to remember
Venue Service

By Zoe Marshall, on 13 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2018

We wanted a chilled, informal wedding for about 60 guests and The Bull was our first and only choice. We finished off the preparations for the buttery in the morning and then myself and my bridesmaids got ready in the bridal suite, while Elaine and Leigh Anne organised the final details and timings, the guests, the flowers and the registrar. They even organised sun! We had a 4pm ceremony that meant we could go straight into photos and then the smokehouse bbq which was a huge hit with our guests. We then had a few informal speeches and went into our first dance and disco. We all had a fantastic day and were supported and guided throughout by Elaine and Leigh Anne. We also had an open bar and a late bar!!! A few of us also stayed in the hotel and all loved the uniqueness of each room. We have some amazing memories and photos to remind us of a perfect day.

Best day of our lives!

By Mrs Claire Tizzard, on 13 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 25 May 2018

From the first moment we laid eyes on the Buttery at the Bull Hotel we knew it was for us. The charm of the old building, not to big and overwhelming but beautiful and unique with bags of character. Once we met the friendly staff and learnt that all our wishes could be met and tailored too we booked it the same day. Contact was a plenty and nothing was too much trouble. Our day went so fast but we wouldn’t change a thing. I promise you put your faith in the team at the Bull Hotel and let your dreams come true!

Perfect Venue for a Kent Wedding
Venue Service

By Laura Mould, on 13 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Feb 2018

We held our wedding at the Bull on February this year and cannot thank them enough for making sure everything ran smoothly and just how we had planned it. The food was amazing, I don't think I have ever tasted a wedding meal like it, The wedding planners have endless patience with what ever request or question you have and the Buttery looked amazing for the ceremony and our perfect special day.

A wedding in January .....

By Nicola and Jim, on 12 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jan 2018

We got married at The Bull on January 20th 2018 . From when we booked the wedding the previous April Leighanne and Elaine were so helpful and attentive and helped us plan our day to make it as special as it was . The food was beyond amazing , the buttery had a warm and cozy ambience and all the staff were so friendly and cheerful. For an intimate wedding , I would recommend The Bull .

Our wedding experience at the The Bull Hotel
Venue Service

By Michael and Sarah Tammadge, on 27 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2017

Our wedding experience at the The Bull Hotel was truly magical. Michael and I met on in May 2014. As Michael so eloquently put in his speech "lucky for Sarah she lived within my 5 miles maximum radius or we would not be celebrating here today". After almost 2 years Michael proposed on December 6th with a beautiful engagement ring inside my advent calendar. A day I will never forget. We booked our wedding date with The Bull later that month. We had such a warm reception from The Bull staff at each meeting - from our first viewing to sleepy thank yous the day after the wedding. We used some companies recommended by The Bull for the wedding essentials (e.g. Esta's Chair Covers) and sourced others (e.g. Ab Fab London Events, Adele Hudgell Floristry, IMMI Photography, Ceilidh Tree and Ruby Velvet Artistry). Thankfully Leigh-Anne and Elaine were able to work so well with every company. We wanted our day to have some fairly unique elements with lots of personal touches - Leigh-Anne, Elaine and their team enabled this vision to become a reality. One of the main reasons that we chose The Bull was the food. Every person that we have spoken to since the wedding has commented on the superb quality of the food and the generous portion sizes. The guests with more specific dietary requirements we catered for beautifully. We had all 11 rooms the night of the wedding. We found the rooms to be spacious and comfortable. The truly amazing thing about the day was the amount of work that went on behind the scenes that we know was crucial to the day's success. We would just like to say a millions thank yous to all at The Bull. We cannot wait to return!

Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Gavin & Nancy, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2017

The team at The Bull were just brilliant. From the moment we walked in to meet them 18 months ago to the morning after our Wedding. Hannah, Leigh Anne & Elaine were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. The venue, staff, food and day were perfect, we wanted for nothing, and I would highly recommend you book immediately. The Buttery looked just as it was pictured in our minds and how the ladies were able to take these ideas from our ramblings and numerous emails and put it to place for our special day was amazing.

Our Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Jim and Jo Green, on 21 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2017

Jim and I met in 2003 and 14 years later we married! To say we like to take easy is an understatement! Once we decided on this, the next decision to make was where to do the do! On one regular Saturday evening Jim and I went for dinner at our wonderfully warm, friendly and Local Hotel, The Bull at Wrotham and right there out of the blue Jim asked me to marry him. After saying "what?' and "why?", I then said "Yes". It would seem to be the natural progression to get married at that very same venue, and oh Lordy are we glad we did. As we had been together for so long , we wanted a relaxed and laid back affair with as little pomp and ceremony as possible- and thats exactly what we got. Our day really couldn't have been better - the staff made it so easy for us to just sit back and enjoy the day. Elaine and all the team at The Bull could not have done more to ensure that our day was as special and as memorable as could possibly be. We had friends and family telling us all day that this was the best wedding they had ever been to- including their own family weddings! Compliments indeed! The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great, the staff were friendly, engaging, fun and very professional. We have no hesitation in recommending The Bull Hotel for the perfect wedding day!
