The Bull and Last

The Bull and Last

British | North London

It takes a lot to make yet another gastropub opening stand out from the crowd in London but the Bull and Last appears to have stuck to the tried and tested formula of serving simply fantastic food. They call themselves a Pub and Kitchen, but reviewers felt the food surpassed usual gastropub fare to be truly gourmet.

A model for pubs of the future ? Possibly, but certainly a model pub for today. Other hostelries please take note. READ REVIEW

"...even bar snacks – sausage roll with black pudding, Scotch eggs and for Saturday lunch a melting slab of croque monsieur or steak sandwich – are firmly in the gourmet bracket, and the fat triple-cooked chips could very well be the capital’s best." READ REVIEW

"...I’ve been back and back and back. Ten, maybe 12 visits. I have never been anywhere so many times before a review – before you make big claims for your own local, you have to be sure. And boy, I’m sure." READ REVIEW
