Visited on 10t January 2017. Large pub and reopened micro brewery in deepest Highgate. Decor is smart and it is set back from the road with step and a little terrace. Didn’t stop for food but it did sound good, beer range had 4 of their own beers on plus a good mix of guests including a Tiny Rebel sour. Service good, their own beer was also decent enough, prices ok too. Liked this place and will likely visit again.
Visited on a sunny afternoon, pleasant to sit outside and not disturbed by the traffic which is unusual for any London pub. Inside was tastefully done, with hops drying out. Great own collection and a good decent selection of guests too. Food looked pretty good as well!
Visited to taste som beers from London Brewing Co. Had a few of them, served with a smile and in good condition. Bull is a modern brewpub, in 2 storages, very cosy and friendly atmosphere. They do food as well, pubfood with a twist, and not the cheapest :-).. Besides beers on tap, they have a nice bottle selection as well, mainly foreign beers. For sure worth a visit..
A nice pub which brews it’s own beers including seasonals. While leaning more towards food they do welcome drinkers. I suspect the food is of higher quality than the beers, which are certainly not in the same league as Dark Star or Oakham !
I had a very nice visit here on a Wednesday afternoon/evening after a jaunt from Hampstead over the heath to Kenwood house and then to this place. Tried their beers and food and while the beers were rather alright, they lacked a bit of flair. They did go well with their food though. Salad was especially good and plentiful while the sandwich was a bit lean on the cold-smoked salmon. Also, a bit surprised that it was cold-smoked since the menu mentioned smoked salmon only. Service was excellent. The lady behind the bar was eager to tell me about their food and beers and show the place around. Took me to see the brewer and the kit without even asking. Selection wasn’t that good. About four of their own on tap, the others were good beers, but mostly fairly regular stuff like Brooklyn lager or Paulaner Weisse.
Overall, The Bull is a great place to visit. Highgate is a lovely neighbourhood, and this pub fits in well. It’s upscale while still pubby, and the range of beers on tap and [even more so] in bottle is impressive. The only downside is that the house beers, from London Brewing Co., are quite average - at best; at worst, they’re amateurish. I tried four on my visit and none were really great. A few were fine, a few seemed to be lacking condition. Nevertheless, this is a nice pub and I’m hopeful that the quality of the beers will improve. The food on offer looks pretty good, although I didn’t eat on my visit. I’ll be sure to check back on this place.
Friendly, bustling brewpub with a decent selection of other beers on cask, keg and bottle. Staff were helpful and reasonably knowledgeable. Didn’t try the food although the menu looked good. I’d go back if I was in the area.

Nice restaurant/brewpub in a classy area of London. I tried some of their own beers, which were ok middle of the road brews. Food was very nice, tried a small fish platter. Decent service.
