The Bull Run is an out-of-the-way spot in Central Shirley that is well worth the drive. We have gone multiple times in the 3 years we've lived in the area. The Inn itself is historic - it allegedly served as a meeting spot during the revolutionary war, and may or may not have seen the likes of Paul Revere and George Washington. What is NOT alleged, is that it has been in existence since 1740. It not only has a restaurant, but also several large funtion halls that host weddings and concerts. We saw Rusted Root here, one of the best concerts I've seen in awhile. The atmosphere is rustic, and looks the period, with wide pine floors, exposed beams and woodwork, and stone fireplaces. They frequently have live music (there is a piano in between the lounge area and dining room) and there is a trivia night on thursdays.
On to the food. The menu changes every season, and most of the ingredients are fresh and sourced from local farms. The menu ranges from delicious pizza and grass-fed burgers to seafood and prime rib. (One of the best prime rib dinners I've ever eaten anywhere) The prices are reasonable, and because the menu changes with the seasons, there is always something different to try. The organic turkey dinner is one of our favorites. The last time I was there, I had the pulled pork dinner, which was juicy and delicious, and came with an out-of-this world ricotta-stuffed sweet potato topped with fried kale. My wife had the beef short ribs which were melt in your mouth good. The prices are reasonable and the service is always pretty good.
If you are in the area and are looking for a good meal at a reasonable price, this is the spot!
