The Bull

The Bull

This pub was editorially chosen for inclusion by Londonist.

The area around Liverpool Street Station is festooned with average pubs. The Bull is not among their number. It dates back to the 17th century and occupies a plot previously held by any number of Lords, Ladies, Dukes and knights. Concealed down an alley away from the tourist areas, the Bull is a delight to stumble across.

A resent refit offers a setting to impress drinkers and diners alike. The first cohort will revel at the selection of beer. Four first-rate and regularly changing cask ales and numerous keg taps adorn the copper-topped bar. The orange metal theme continues round the room's fittings, while seating is handled by cosy leather banquettes Diners can choose from a competent pub menu, or head upstairs to the comfortable Hide restaurant (despite its name, the Hide has better vegetarian options than the downstairs pub). The place also offers accommodation — handy if you've missed that last train home.
