Back for Good! We reopen from 5pm on 15 April 2021

This is an email that we have been desperate to write and share with you; our reopening plans, including some very exciting news!
So, first things first, our very exciting news…
We are thrilled to welcome Danielle Parish (Danny) who will be helping to steer the team to new dizzying heights, driving customer experience and improving operational performance. I am sure you will all receive a warm welcome from Danny, who is really keen to start meeting you all. Danny moved to Oxted in 1965 and attended Laverock and St Michaels, Limpsfield (before it was made into luxury apartments!), and she is now back after 10 years working abroad for investors of a luxury marina and waterfront residential development in Montenegro. 
She is very excited to be back ‘playing’ in her familiar stomping ground.
The Bull’s kitchen team has been busy putting together new menus, remembering to keep some of The Bull’s favourites, many with a new twist, along with introducing other exciting things to try.
After months of home cooking, the menus seem rather mouth-wateringly, heavenly and will be posted on the website soon.
The New Courtyard
The team have been busy, designing a new courtyard area, using part of the car park. We wait with eager anticipation as slowly the area starts to take shape. The borders have had some attention and will soon be awash with seasonal colour. Ivy has been removed from the walls and the beautiful texture of the stone will soon be lit up by festoon lighting which will adorn the whole outside area. Sleepers and planters provide a colourful boundary for all to sit comfortably and enjoy the sunset. 
We will still have two disabled parking spaces and a drop off point.
We will Kick-off from Thursday 15 April 2021
Reservations are open, click here.
We will welcome you back for the first time this year to our outside areas from Thursday 15 April for a relaxing evening of drinks and bar snacks.

Every Thursday between 5.00pm and 10.30pm for drinks only

The Food 
Friday 16 April – Sunday 18 April, food will be provided by the popular Vietvan street food vendor throughout the day and evening. Vietvan is street food of the highest quality and is a real crowd pleaser and enjoys a huge following locally (remember the queues at the Oxted Beer Festival). Please check them out on Instagram @vietvanlondon. 
Friday 23 April – Sunday 25 Aprilour very own chef, James, will provide a Latino pop-up throughout the weekend. James lived in Brazil for many years, working for world-class restaurants learning and blending cooking styles. This is something we are all excited to try – delicioso!
