Earlier this week, we were out and about whistling around our favourite street in N1 – Upper St.
With street lights glowing and Christmas shoppers hunting for trinkets it was so beautifully festive.
It was freezing so after we’d explored our favourite gift shops, boutiques & café’s we needed somewhere to really warm up & eat. The Bull was glowing with warmth and buzz so we dived in and were warmly welcomed – an easy win for a good first impression.
Here’s a description of the establishment in their own words ‘We’ve taken the endearing spirit of your traditional local, added a touch of urban cool and topped this with a generous sprinkling of English eccentricity’. I would say, on first impression – they had succeeded.
Soft furnishings and a casual atmosphere makes The Bull feel like a home from home – the spiral staircase is the feature piece, leading up to a cosy seating area where you can look down (spy…!) onto the bar below.
The Bull lets it’s cheeky streak come through…
Feeling virtuous and wintery, coupled with trying to be ‘ladies’, we each chose the carrot and chestnut soup and a bottle of cabernet. FESTIVE! Note, we cannot genuinely critique the kitchen talent – this was JUST soup. Good soup none the less.
And guys, it was a BARGAIN, we don’t mind that, every penny, you know.
