"I am a customer of this fine establishment. I have been friends with the owners for years; since " high school " They have been , without any doubt, the most consistent supporters of live entertainment in this city. Here's what I know. Every time I walk into The Bull and Barrel , I feel like it is a warm and friendly place. The menu of food and libations are second to none. The staff , the decor, the general ambiance; it's
an easy spot to put your feet up, let yourself relax, and enjoy the people, the friends and the warm atmosphere. Welcome to " The Bull ""

"Just because we are proud to be among your loyal suppliers, doesn't mean we can't also be satisfied customers! Truthfully, of the dozens of times we've had drinks and meals at the Bull, EVERY SINGLE TIME our expectations have been met or exceeded. Great food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and always efficient service with a smile. That says a lot about the ownership and management, an approach that is unfortunately rare these days, but it is alive and well at the Bull!"

"Yvette: I just wanted to thank you and your staff for an excellent job on Les’ 50th party last Sat Oct 1, 2016. It went very well and was enjoyed by everyone.   Ashley was very accommodating and her service was great (as well as her patience)-THANK YOU ASHLEY.  Charlotte did a great job with the refreshments & kept them flowing-WELL DONE CHARLOTTE. The food was very good –thank you for suggesting the platters as they went over very well. Having Eric Kidd performing was a nice surprise as well (he is our neighbor & entertains well).

"Been stopping by this place for years. Favourite things on the menus are Stuffed Yorkshire Pudding and Irish Nachos. Many a retirement send-off has been held here -- the perfect atmosphere for it. Some of the groups they get in to play are excellent, including (the McKennas)"

"My steak and mushroom pie was Amazing! … I have never tasted anything like it! I strongly suggest you order this if given the chance…… Service was a tiny bit slow but it is a pub and we showed up Mid-afternoon around shift change. Our waitress, even with the pressure from the regulars, was attentive and friendly."

"I've been coming here for years. Decor-wise, it's probably one of the nicest bars in the city, but the food can be expensive. Live music is a nice touch too. Clean facilities and friendly staff."

"Excellent service, very polite servers. I ordered the Haddock and chips, you get a full plate of fries, the fish is so beautifully flaky and the batter is nice and crispy not at all greasy. The only downside was you only get a very small amount of coleslaw which I feel you need a good amount of coleslaw with your fish and chips. I love this pub and will continue going back for more."
