Square Meal Review of Bull & Last ?

With guest brews written on the menu, this is a proper boozer where beer is as important as food and wine – the kind of place where you’d be happy to while away a few hours with some nibbles to pick at. The bar is pitched on the right side of rough-and-ready, with happy staff and some animal heads on the walls, while the upstairs dining room promises a more mellow vibe and some very decent gastropub food. A salad of sea trout and marsh samphire served with a soft-boiled egg starts things off nicely, ahead of something like gigot of lamb with a schnitzel and ash-covered goats’ cheese – although hard-liners might prefer the house burger, a rump steak or beer-battered fish and chips, followed by a helping of Victoria plum, lemon and ginger-nut fool.

    The Hungry Porker :: The Bull and Last

    The word gastropub annoys me. Almost as much as ‘artisan’ does. It just sounds so up its own arse, which in a pub it translates to them believing they need to use italics on the menu and name the provenance of every ingredient, right down to the beer the fish has been battered in- recently it was Camden Hells batter- like I really care. It also usually means my single most hated thing will make a cameo on the menu- triple cooked chips. Two big fingers to that gastronomic tosser Heston for brining these damned things to the earth. The Bull and Last is caught somewhere between still being a local boozer that serves good grub and being a posher ‘artisan’ gastropub that has embraced all of the frustrating and unnecessary things that come with name- think silly little pots for sauces, eating off wooden boards. Set on Highgate Road just a couple of minutes walk from the Soho House 3-in-1 joint, it has gained a solid reputation over the years and claimed the Best Sunday lunch award back in 2011. It has a great local pub vibe, and even on a Tuesday night it was a full house. With a great list of ales and beers to choose from there’s a lot to love about this place...

    love2feed :: eat: the bull and last

    This is the second time I’ve made the trek to The Bull and Last on a Sunday, previously for a girls brunch and on this occasion, for a friends birthday celebration.With all sorts of accolades under its belt, such as winner of the Observer food awards “best Sunday lunch in 2011″ and runner up in 2012, there’s a reason why people continue to flock together to this highly acclaimed Highgate gastropub. Word of warning, if you don’t see eye to eye with stuffed furry animals, have an overwhelming fear of taxidermy or slight case of mortophobia or doraphobia, this pub ain’t for you matey!..
