The Old Bull & Bush Description

A grade II listed building, The Old Bull & Bush is one of London’s oldest and most famous pubs. It is recorded that it received its licence to sell ale in 1721. It quickly became a haunt for artists and literary scholars including famous artist William Hogarth and writer Austin Dobson.

Part of the Old Bull & Bush dates back to the reign of Charles I and its been haunted by knocks and bumps for years with no one knowing why until the recent discovery of a skeleton and used surgical knives were found in the basement of this old London pub…..

The menu changes with the seasons and is modern British,

comfortably interwoven with some Mediterranean influences.

It ranges from traditional favourites such as fish and chips and steaks to freshly made pizzas and pastas with the chef’s daily specials showcasing the finest market fresh ingredients. There’s something for everyone and for all occasions too. You don’t have to go for the full works if you don’t want to, just have a snack and a lovely drink in the bar with your friends.

Wine is something of a passion for us and nothing pleases us more than when we unearth a new discovery that blows our socks off! We’ve got everything from crisp refreshing whites, trendy pinks to fat juicy reds by the bottle or glass so we are really looking forward to your reaction to all the latest treasures!

We are also very proud of our beers and we have a great selection of cask ales, super chilled draft and bottled beers to quench your thirst.

Just stop by for a pint of ale, read the papers and chill out or book a table and enjoy simple food prepared with care. more

“Went for business lunch recently. The pub is fantstic. We sat in the dining room and was served by some brillant and friendly staff who recommended both a dish to try and wine which would complement it. Both were super choices and drinks and food served quickly for the quality. We've booked again for next week!! The stars will not change when trying to do my rating, but i would score 4 out of 5 for atmosphere and value and 5 out of 5 for quality of food and drink!”

“We booked a table here today to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday. The food was cold and oily and the service was downright rude. We are so disappointed and feeling quite ill!”
