Just had drinks here before dinner. The pub has a great feel about it. They have a good selection of craft beers and wines, they also serve some interested bar snacks, pork pies, scotch eggs, sausage rolls. Only disappointment was they do not serve any non-alcoholic beers - one of the group cannot drink for medical reasons. They are open early and offer a breakfast menu. The full menu and restaurant looks interesting too. Need to visit again to try the food.
Went to the Bull and Hide pub with my son today, for a snack and a drink. We ordered two of their ‘hot salt beef sandwiches on rye’ and a side of their ‘skin on chips’ to share. After waiting for quite a long time, our food arrived. I am now going to describe the ‘hot salt beef sandwich’: A slice of whole meal bread, toasted, probably to disguise the staleness of the bread; toped up with some scraps of very dry, leathery meat, with a drizzle of mustard on top. Garnish of stale crisps and tired, soggy salad leaves. The chips: I can’t be bothered to describe them… I have eaten better chips at McDonalds. Probably the worst sandwich we have eaten in a long time. We were quite hungry, because we had been to see an exhibition at the Barbican and we had had only a cup of tea for breakfast, otherwise I think we would have walked out. Indifferent service.
