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.

Kerry & Simon wedding - 2nd November 2019
Venue Service

By Kerry & Simon Hennessy, on 10 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2019

As soon as we visited the Bull, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for - we loved the Buttery and rooms and they exceeded our expectations on the day. The initial meetings were really relaxed and we loved their flexible approach from decorating the venue to scope of increasing/decreasing numbers up to 6 weeks before. There was constant communication, the price was competitive and the list of local suppliers they recommended were amazing - we used the florist at Borough Green, DJ Anton and room decorators - Locate to Create and we were so happy with them. The day itself was seemless, we worked with Sangita and she was cool, calm and collected, she had complete control over the day and was always to hand. I would also like to say that the staff were amazing as as well - polite, helpful and happy to be there which was really important and added to the atmosphere. The food was even better then we expected, every single person commented on the quality and size of the portions - dinner service was seamless and no one was sat waiting. Everyone also commented on the venue, lovely rooms and it was so good to have breakfast with our guests the morning after. We truly had the best day ever and as a venue I could not fault it and is perfect for an intimate, relaxed wedding and would highly recommend

Perfect rustic relaxed Autumnal venue
Venue Service

By Rachel Coomber, on 27 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

In September 2018 we begun our jouney in venue searching, we knew we wanted a smallish venue full of rustic charm and within budget. After viewing a few different ones we came and saw The Bull Hotel and we fell instantly in love. It had such a lovely relaxed vibe and beautiful the buttery is a stunning room and the courtyard was just so inviting. We booked straight away and visiting all the open days at the Bull we fell instantly in love with the styling company locate to create which made the venue look even more perfect! From start the finish the team especially Leigh Anne have been incredible and our wedding was perfect without an hitch at all. Every single staff member were caring, charasmatic and couldnt have been more helpful which really made the day not also run smoothly but relaxing as well. We are just so sad its all done, but we will be back soon to enjoy the hotel and amazing food!!

The Most Perfect Place
Venue Service

By Tracy and Ken Thornton, on 16 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

Were do I start ? This will never be enough to truly express how wonderful our Wedding Day was. From the moment we first spoke to the lovely Leigh Ann about planning our wedding until, Saturday 31st August 2019 when we said " I Do ", we believed we had made the right choice and Oh My Goodness we were so right. The hotel is beautiful, cosy and quirky, The Buttery is absolutely stunning, the food is delicious, but Leigh Ann and every single member of the team, are the reason it was all so perfect. Truly, nothing was too much trouble and they really made us all feel at home. We arrived to a warm welcome and left feeling like we have made friends for life. We will be back for a visit as soon as possible. Thank you all so much for making our dreams come true, Tracy & Ken Thornton xxxx

Our special wedding
Venue Service

By Mak and Rachel Joseph, on 20 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

From start to finish, Elaine and the wonderful team at the bull made our wedding the most special day ever. They were able to bring everything we envisioned to reality and were so helpful during the process of planning til our wedding day. They were able to accommodate all our needs and made the day as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend their wedding service to anyone who is looking to get married at the bull. The location is situated in a beautiful village with many great opportunities for wedding photos. The buttery itself was beautifully decorated and was a perfect size to hold our religious ceremony and reception. Every time we look back at photos, we wish we could get married all over again! Thank you so much to everyone at the bull for making dreams come true and getting us on reality TV ;) #celebsgodating

An Absolutely Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Claire and Reece, on 12 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2019

Our wedding was held at The Bull in Summer 2019 and we had an amazing day. Leigh Anne couldn't do enough for us in the run up to our day and on the day itself! We had to tweak the menu and drinks on offer due to dietary requirements but this was never an issue, she also helped us to arrange our seating plan and gave us numerous ideas for decoration. On the day Leigh Anne helped the groomsmen with their button holes, check on us ladies throughout the morning, helped turn the room around between the ceremony, wedding breakfast and the evening reception and just helped the day run so smooth. There are plenty of beautiful, quaint places for photos to be taken in and around The Bull and the food on offer is absolutely delicious, such big portions too! We are so happy we found this incredible venue and recommend it to anyone thinking of tying the knot. We'll be back soon for another meal and a cosy up in front of the fireplace! Thank you to everyone at The Bull who helped make our day so, so incredible.

Wish we could do it all again!!!

By Andy & Lorraine Whitewood, on 01 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

We settled on the Bull for our wedding venue after visiting on a ‘wedding open day’. This is where we first met Leigh Anne & Elaine (both are TOTAL stars!). We settled on the venue quite quickly, the overall ‘cosy’ feel of The Buttery, the previous reviews, the food (oh my goodness ....... the food!) all gave us the feeling that this was the place for us - and how right we were. Leigh Anne and Elaine handled everything in the run up to the day with total professionalism and a very reassuring calmness. Following our ‘taster meal’ we opted for the smokehouse menu - we still have people telling us just how good it was a month later! Come the day itself Elaine and Co had dressed The Buttery which looked beautiful and any concerns we had about the changes from wedding service setting to dining hall to evening function room became a distant memory, we still truly don’t know how Elaine and her team did it so well in such a short time. We had 40 family and friends during the day and another 50 in the evening, The Buttery was the perfect size and setting for every aspect of the day. I can’t sing any louder about the whole package! We used Nicola Dawson as our photographer and Phillip Harvey (20:20 Sounds) for the evening disco. Both were recommended by The Bull at the open days. Nicola is fantastic and Phil had the whole place jumping for the duration of the party in the evening! If you want somewhere charming, cosy and a little different, for your wedding day, book The Bull, sit back and relax - you’ll be in VERY good hands!! We both really do wish we could do it all over again!

Our peaky blinder wedding
Venue Service

By Anne and Andy Fribbens, on 24 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2019

We were looking for a venue that allowed us to be ourselves in our wedding day. A humanist ceremony with no hymns no prayers no preacher and this venue allowed us and our imaginations run wild. With help from Holly and her mother at we dressed the hall as a 1920 peaky blinder Gatsby theme including our humanist celebrant. Elaine controlled our music for the day with Andy . The food for the day was locally sourced from Kent and organic. The children had their own table with their own menu and drinks. The whole theme made for very special personal photos. In my hotel room we had the hairdresser and the make up artists for myself and the bridesmaids. We hired most of the rooms in the hotel allowing room for everyone to get dressed and prepare for the wedding. The day was very personal unique and memorable. We had 42 guest as we wanted a small intimate wedding but I felt special throughout and Andy was allowed to be himself with very few restrictions.

Steve and Joseph's Wedding 16.2.19
Venue Service

By Joseph and Steven Pomeroy Weihe, on 11 May 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2019

Every single member of staff at the hotel was incredibly professional and every request was dealt with as if it were no trouble. They helped to make our weekend run smoothly and looked after us well. The Venue is perfect - it has lots of character and charm and the Buttery (the ceremony room) is absolutely stunning. Leigh Anne, one of the Bull Hotel's wedding planners was absolutely amazing on the build up to the wedding. You helped to keep us to plan and coordinated a wonderful day and keep us calm throughout the process. I cannot express how grateful we are. The food was wonderful and so many of our guests expressed how delicious they thought it was. Most said that it was the best food that they have ever had at a wedding! - WE AGREE! Each course of the wedding breakfast was fantastic. The service throughout the day from all staff at the Bull was seamless. From waiting tables to the quick turnarounds required in the Buttery. It is clear the Hotel operates like a well-oiled machine. The rooms at the hotel were immaculate and everyone who stayed had a good night’s sleep. Once again, thank you for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect!

Fairytales are real
Venue Service

By Caitlin Gray Stebles, on 14 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

Jon & I had our U.K. wedding celebration at The Bull. The ambience of the space was enchanting. Leigh Anne was an amazing wedding organiser. I felt so calm and relaxed as I knew she had everything in control. The wedding celebration was amazing and I have such good memories that are better then I can imagine. That’s why not say fairy tales do come true

Beautiful Venue - Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mrs and Mrs Bruckner, on 07 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018

As soon as we saw the beautiful buttery we knew instantly that it was the place for us. The whole venue has such a wonderfully relaxed feel to it that we felt at home right away. The buttery is so quaint, rustic, simple and stunning, the perfect fit for what we were after. The wonderful Elaine and Leigh Anne were amazing, always in call to answer all those crazy emails and questions that a nervous bride-to-be has. No questions went unanswered and they are amazingly good at making you feel like anything you want is possible. Nothing was too much trouble for them. From the initial meeting to the actual day Elaine absorbed all of the stress of the day, leaving us to enjoy the entire process. On the day, Elaine was my rock - she managed the whole day like a complete angel and kept me calm and stress free. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, the sun was shining (not bad for a late October wedding), the food was superb, the staff worked so hard to ensure the day ran smoothly, Elaine and Leigh Anne managed the event seamlessly, the buttery looked so beautiful (we were able to to dress the room the day before which was a godsend) and it was just how I pictured it to be in my dreams. If you are looking for a relaxed, stress free, beautifully simple and chic wedding, then this is the place for you. We had the most perfect day and the Bull, Elaine and the team will always have a special place in our hearts.

Perfect intimate wedding
Venue Service

By Jessica and Matthew Walton, on 25 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2018

From start to finish Leigh Anne and Elaine were amazing and so accommodating to all our questions and requests. We wanted a small wedding for 18 and was done perfectly and made us feel as important as if we had hundreds of guests. Venue and staff lovely and the food was amazing and delicious. Couldn't have asked for more.
