Very disappointing meal today. A prawn/crayfish starter was pretty rubbery with a rather wet sauce and 2 slices of baguette with no butter. Main was a pork Wellington as there was no beef left. The pork was small and over cooked so tough (pork on...More

Went to the Nevill bull after a friend visited and mentioned about it, so booked a table as close to home for our wedding anniversary, all I can say is it was lovely, amazing food, friendly service. Basically we loved it.

I had asked for a special meal of either roast lamb, roast chicken or Grilled Salmon served with veg and trimmings. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it.

A traditional country pub in the pretty village of Birling, just outside West Malling. All food ingredients are sourced and purchased by Andy. Our chefs take great pride in preparing our dishes from scratch using only the finest ingredients. See our Website for the latest menu. We have 3 hand pumps for real ales and have been in The CAMRA Good Beer guide for the last two years. We have a separate dining room which can be used for Birthday Parties and other family occasions. Our large patio is perfect for al fresco dining in the warmer months. Music events take place throughout the year which will be advertised on our website and Facebook page. A family friendly pub where everyone will be made extremely welcome by Andy. Dogs are also welcome and fresh water is always available for them after that long walk!
