Real Ale at the Bull at Benenden

The Bull at Benenden offers diversity and choice in Real Ales, Ciders and Perries. We are passionate about supporting local breweries and reducing the amount of 'beer miles' that bring our regulars to the pumps.

Selling as standard Kent and Sussex Real Ales, you will always find the fabulous four:

  • Old Dairy Brewery Copper Top Autumn Ale, 4.1%, Rolvenden
  • Larkins Traditional, 3.4% , Chiddingstone Brewery
  • Harveys, 4%, Lewes
  • Dark Star Hop Head, 3.8%, Horsham, West Sussex

We also offer The Old Dairy Brewery Red Top, Gold Top and Sun Top, being that it is our nearest brewery situated within a couple of miles from The Bull.

The Bull at Benenden sells a good variety of local lagers including Whistable Kentish Lager, 4.1%, Hepworth Blonde from Horsham, 5%, a delicious organic lager and The Bull was proud to be the first pub in Kent to sell 'Curious Brew', 4.7% brewed at the award winning winery Chapel Down Vineyard, Tenterden.
