The Buttery and Glasshouse

Hotel, Public House and Restaurant

ITS A HIDDEN SURPRISE YOU WOULDN’T EXPECT. The new glasshouse behind the splendid 14th Century Grade ll - listed Bull Hotel is an innovative and elegant wedding venue.

At the rear of the hotel, a 126m2 sleek glass structure purposely designed for wedding receptions is a bold addition to The Bull Hotel, blending old and new.

Expect to see a spectacular retractable arched roof, south facing sliding glass doors to catch the sun, sleek glass and cool metallics – an elegant and modern wedding venue, flooded with natural light.

The Glasshouse is an inspiring space which provides a lasting impact on guests’ memories of the wedding.

Your something old, something new

Facing The Glasshouse, sits the historic ceremony room, The Buttery. A timeless oak-beamed barn-style venue, perfect to hold memorable wedding ceremonies.

Licensed by King Henry VIII, the historical Buttery is in perfect harmony with The Glasshouse creating a unique Kentish courtyard. The final result is an awe-inspiring wedding venue.
