“Great to drop in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Have been a few times as part of small groups and really enjoyed the food and have been impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
Have been less impressed when going in larger groups, for example work Christmas meal last year. Food not up to usual standard, and service somewhat lacklustre. A real pity as is a great place ordinarily. Raise your game for large organised groups on set menus, and I'd gladly raise to 5/5 :-)

“We like this place whenever we go in!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

I remember this place when it was The Bull public house and full of not very salubrious-looking characters. Since then, it has become an absolute gem in Halifax. It is classy, stylish, and a place to come with your friends or colleagues for decent food, drink and service. It is a great place for a romantic meal for two or a sociable meal for 4-6 people. We have eaten here together and with colleagues or friends and we can recommend this absolutely. The only criticism we have is that the sharing platter with the suet pudding was a little too bland and heavy for an afternoon menu, but apart from that, full marks to everyone at The Bull!

“Exceeded all Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Always looking for somewhere new we checked out the reviews on TA for Halifax and liked what we saw for the Brasserie at the Bull, and must say we were quite simply surprised and delighted by the occasion. Arriving a bit earlier than booked we were shown to a lovely booth overlooking the whole restaurant which had a welcome buzz about it and were then talked through the menu and made our choices of Thai Fish cakes for my wife and the Belly Pork with Asian Noodles, both excellent with great flavours. For the mains we had the chicken and Tina the Duck breast, which once again excelled and followed it by sharing the Sticky Toffee pudding..YUM!! All in all a great evening with a bill to match of only £72.00 including service, a lovely 2012 Chablis and a Espresso Dopio. You can tell that there is a very hands on approach by the couple who own the place and their immediate staff in the restaurant, but the kitchen itself delivers a quality often lacking in a city centre Pub....Will definitely return even though it is a 40 minute drive. Thanks to all...

“Simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Oh my what an amazing warm friendly welcome, it's all about putting the customer first and foremost such a rare and refreshing quality to offer.
We were a party of four, normally they offer a reduced evening menu but was given the option of the full daytime menu, the starters were absolutely scrumptious, then was waiting with baited breath for the mains, Philip recommended the Halibut and I was not disappointed neither were my fellow diners who all ordered something different, excellent food and presentation, we were that impressed with the quality of the fjord we asked to meet the chef and convey our appreciation directly to him, will definitely visit again and again fantastic old fashioned values service with a modern approach, well done Philip bar owner , fantastic job David chef look forward to dining at the Brasserie at the bull again, Philips son waited on us and nothing was too much trouble or effort
