If you’re out for a days shopping at Shepherds Bush Westfield and looking forward to a lunch break with the tipple of your choice, then The Bull offers the perfect lunch spot to sit down and rejuvenate before getting back on your feet.
Spread out over 2 floors with a choice to dine comfortably indoors or take a table on the terrace and watch the shoppers pass by, the menu is a mix of American and British classics such as fish and chips, steak and fries, club and reuben sandwich options and oysters rockefeller for those feeling a little fancy.
Part of the award winning group Geronimo Inns, the popular restaurant group has over 30 gastro pubs around London and Surrey. Rather than a chain, each pub is individualised to have a style of it’s own.
Not just a lunch favourite of course, busy workers can relax once the clock strikes 5 o’clock by hitting the bar for a well deserved drink, choosing from an extensive selection of craft beers and bourbon, spirits and cocktails, as well as an impressive wine list spanning from France, Italy, Germany, Argentina, Spain, Australia, Chile and South Africa.
During our visit we started with a chilled bottle of South African chenin blanc, a light refreshing and zingy white which kept our moods light and cheery. A starter of calamari arrived piping hot, crispy and cooked just right to avoid a rubbery texture.
Mains of guinea fowl kiev with roasted onion and ketchup shallot was tender, flavoursome and a generous portion size. And finally a steak and oyster pudding with a deliciously soft outer case filled with rich beef enhanced by salty oysters melted into a thick warm gravy.
The Bull also offers a function room upstairs catering for birthdays, private parties or work events, proving the Geronimo Group’s formula is a winning one. Visit this branch and your sure to be greeted with a welcoming atmosphere any day or night of the week.
