About the Pub

The pub reopened in February 2020 following a closure for major refurbishment, and amongst other changes, the pub now opens at noon from Monday to Thursday, instead of 3pm. Outside, The Bull’s Head has been given a complete facelift, repainted in a deep redcurrant with new lighting and signage. In the garden, the south-facing decked terrace has been extended providing seating for 60. The interior has also been refreshed with additional seating provided.

The Bull's Head is very much a community pub, located in the heart of Pratts Bottom. It has a long history having started life as a coaching inn in 1575.

The pub, which is popular with dog-walkers, has a large enclosed garden.

The food range has been increased, with a mainly up-market menu available, making extensive use of fresh locally-sourced ingredients. Visitors should note that although the R5/R10 London bus route from Orpington station is convenient for the pub, the route is infrequent and doesn't run at all on Sundays.
