Our Story

In 2017, when Limpsfield’s historic village pub, The Bull Inn went up for sale, a group of entrepreneurial locals set up Enterprising Limpsfield Ltd as a community-driven investment opportunity to buy the pub and create something unique for future generations.

This exciting business has been conceived in response to the changing needs of the community, with a vision to create more than a pub – a ‘pub-hub’  at the heart of local life. By being completely independent, we can draw on the tastes and preferences of the wider community to promote local food, drink, innovation and to support other locally-owned small businesses and individuals.

Following a hugely successful fundraising campaign, Enterprising Limpsfield Ltd (now consisting of over 200 investors) bought the pub and, in collaboration with many local and specialist tradespeople, suppliers and designers, set about creating a beautiful, modern and functional environment that respects the fabric of this historic Grade II listed building.

We’ve reached our investment target (amazing!) – if you’re still interested in investing and would like to be added to our waiting list please email info@enterprisinglimpsfield.com

Our History

The Bull Inn is a Grade II listed building that has been operating as an inn for hundreds of years and must have seen its fair share of Limpsfield life. Today, it’s much loved by locals and visitors alike, but still plays a part in many local goings-on!

On the well trodden path from the south coast to London, the Bull was a welcome stopping point before the trudge over the North Downs and still marks a stop-off point for cyclists doing the London to Brighton or Eastbourne routes and local hikers, ramblers and dog-walkers.

Until the late 1800s, The Bull was owned by Bushell & Co of Westerham, but has been a free house for many years, supplying many locally brewed beers, particularly those from Westerham Brewery and known for its great food, roaring fire in the winter and friendly atmosphere.
