Welcome to the

Bull

 

Try our new country walk to explore the beautiful countryside around our pub. Perfect if you want to build up an appetite or walk off that hearty lunch. With its handsome timber framed weather boarded exterior and imposing bulls head over the door The Bull Inn is a 16th century Grade II listed country pub on the edge of Hockley Woods that has welcomed visitors through its historic doors for hundreds of years. Just 6 miles from the seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea and the world's longest pleasure pier for which Hockley Woods provided the timber and within easy reach of Rayleigh Wickford and Basildon, The Bull has a distinctly rural essence. A gateway to the 280 acre Hockley Woods the largest woodland in Essex and a remnant of the ancient wildwoods that once covered much of England The Bull connects the lovely woodland walks of Hockley with the rolling landscape of the Crouch River Valley to the north. In summertime on long hot days and balmy evenings the beer garden buzzes with visitors. Even in the winter thanks to the cosy olde worlde interior it's an idyllic place to savour traditional pub food and drink. Make sure you don't miss our monthly quiz night, live music and our annual beer festival.
