Stumbled into this place randomly. Found instant hospitality from downstairs bartender Monica who made our stay quite enjoyable. Great group of people come into this place from all parts of the world which makes for great conversation.
Will definitely repeat this place. Say hi to Monica when you go in.
Arranged to meet my friend for lunch here, and since nobody really lives in the central London area this was the 'middle ground' for us both. Also we were expecting the football to be on so it was more his choice than mine.
This is located in a section of the mall containing other restaurants but this is the only bar/pub one there. I got there early and looked for a seat close to a TV. This place is big, like downstairs, upstairs and backstairs big. It is also very cosy, lots of sofas and alcoves to chill in.
Since they only had two televisions upstairs to choose from I picked the table closest to the upstairs bar and tv.
Had the steak from the specials, reasonably priced and good enough for 15 quid. The service was quick and polite and I quickly became a big fan of this pub.
However since I am trying to stay away from shopping malls, due to my inability to not spend, it will be awhile since I come back here I guess.
I really enjoyed this place. It was sort of a diamond in the rough since it stood out as a charming old school pub amongst a sea of Westfield chains and hub bub. Don't get me wrong, I think the Bull is a chain, but the feel of it keeps you distant from the reality just outside.
My cousin and I went in for a few drinks and met people from all over the planet. I was a good time of the year as everyone was buzzing with excitement and in the holiday spirit. A great place to mingle as a tourist or as a local. I don't think I saw too many shopping bags, so it seemed like people came straight there.
The staff was great, especially our downstairs bartender Monica who offered friendly advice about the area.
I'd repeat a visit to this place!
Great pub , huge pub, Over 3 levels. Outside area downstairs and the main bar has lots of character . Its a bit modern and a bit country . You would think this is enough but half way up the stairs there is a small area for quiet times or a private affair. To the top level you find another main bar with eating area and another outside area. Up 1 more step with more tables. A billiards room with gorgeous old chairs and cushions but its all modern and fresh? Quirky wallpaper , mirrored doors its like being in someones loungeroom.
We ate here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasnt very busy . Usual food of roasts, burgers kids menu that was nice and reasonably priced. The staff are young and bored but friendly enough. It has something for everyone here.
The only pub in the Westfield shopping center. A former favorite of BBC employees (or still is perhaps, I have no idea). Pretty decent place. Drinks are slightly too expensive: hence the 3 and not 4 stars.
The Bull is a pub in a shopping centre. Kinda. So, as you'd imagine, it isn't exactly steeped in history and olde worlde charm(e). That said, it isn't rubbish. In fact, it isn't even average.
It's a decent little place to drink beer. There's a guest ale on (just the one) and it is deceptively large, which means you're likely to get a seat. As it isn't far from the tube, it could well be a good place to meet before venturing elsewhere.
For smokers, there's a decent little balcony patio which looks over... well... some cash machines, but don't let that put you off.
While this isn't ideal or picturesque, I found it pleasant enough to spend a good few hours in.
It certainly won't win any awards in your mind, but it definitely won't offend. That said, it is worth pointing out that I went midweek. Perhaps this place is a different kettle of fish at the weekend. You'd have to find that out yourself though.
The Bull from the array of restaurants at Westfield London as they will be serving British classics, along side the simple favourites of the pub aficionados....simple grilled fish, slow roasted cuts of meat, seasonal soups, sandwiches, pies, sunday roasts, a curry, salads...
The mix and match furniture that shows they love to search through markets; the ability to be really relaxed or slightly formal; the toys and games to while away the hours with friends...game of billiards anyone?....room to perch at the bar; slightly more room to squeeze a pram next to your chair so you can rest your weary soul with a glass of vino; but most importantly be amongst kindred souls who think that quite frankly, at this particular moment, just nothing beats a pub!
It was lovely Saturday with a glass of Aromatic White Wine, Lérane Terret/Viognier 2008. And enjoyed myself quietly & peaceful...
With shopping I often get thirsty and stop by here when I am done to kick back and have a bevy. There is soo many things I like about this. The atmopshere, layout, outdoor area and the billiards table room.It has it all. Its a formal and warm style feel but minus the toffy nosed people. Drinks seem reasonably priced too and the staff are lovely. Word of warning this place can be rather busy and hard to get a table/seat on some nights. So if there is a large group of you or your planning to have a meal make sure you book a table in advance.
Imagine what a pub built as part of the Westfield would be like - yes that's right, clean and functional, but no soul - still better than shopping I suppose
This place is the first proper bar at or near the Westfield London. Its located in the southern terrace restaurant row area. It appears two or three floors of seating. It even has a game room. The staff are pretty friendly. It seems like a slightly upscale American bar. It's multi-level with ample seating.
Came here on a Sunday and was extremely disappointed. The barman who served us did not know where yo find half the drinks on the till and had to get someone else to help him. Then he was baffled by an order of the Sunday roast, which was on the specials board. When he eventually found it, he didn't know how to enter it into the till so another member of staff had to help him. This would have been forgiveable except that the food was terrible. My chicken sandwich was so slathered in mayo that I couldn't finish it and the vegetables from my husband's roast were inedible. Would not go there again.
