Wonderful time at this restaurant. The meat was delicious and the wine was nicely paired. Each member of our group had a different cut of meat and each said that the meat was cooked to perfection and flavorful.

Bull & Castle is a great place to have a drink and a wonderful steak or burger! The interior of the bar/restaurant is very welcoming and informal. The food, particularly all beef, is phenomenal. A bit expensive but worth it!

The service at this restaurant is only topped by its food. Amazing service and amazing food. Plus they went out of their way to make my boyfriend’s birthday amazing. From prosecco to free dessert. Impeccable service!
