Top 5 reviews of The Bull
This pub is okay. Pretty big, so groups of 6 can stand up and hang around tables. By 9:45, several items on the menu where done. My fries were good, my friend's burger was said to be good as were sausages and mash (generous portion), but they were all out of cooked vegetables. But food came out nice and hot. Music loud, lights dimmed at 10:30. Staff were okay. more
We stopped in on Christmas with little else open in the neighborhood. Both bartenders were drunk, but hey, it's Christmas. The major offense came when one of the bartenders came and told me to get off my barstool because he was sitting there drinking with his mates. That plus the DJ's love for Kid Rock and other bad 90s US pop hits made us down our drinks and make a run for it. more
Went here for an early dinner with my partner. The atmosphere is lovely inside, dark and intimate despite the large space for seating. It was fairly quiet so the bartenders were really friendly and relaxed. I ate the fish and chips after having craved some all day - I was not disappointed. Would love to come back for a drink on a busier night.
It's easy to miss this as you walk down the road... more
A little hipster for my taste, and they had no bitter lemon (no gin sours fix for me ! Boo!) but it was reasonably enough priced, clean , and with a friendly crowd who asked us to take a picture, rather than using a £:(?&(,£;(&4;&);!7;36££9(;)£ selfie stick, which shouldn't be a refreshing occurrence !
Loved the cheesy nostalgia music, and the fact we got to sit down , nice range of booze... more
Five star ambiance. It doesn't get any better than a cozy table upstairs with a full bar downstairs and tons of great people watching all night.
The food's good, and I appreciate that it's not just another Nicholson's or Wetherspoon's franchise with a faux handwritten menu and the city's "best" fish n' chips.
It may not win any major culinary awards, but they've got a weekly special before... more
