Sporting grand gin palace styling and an upstairs cocktail bar called Boulogne Bar, The Bull and Gate is an historic Kentish Town pub. Blur and Coldplay performed here in their early days, and live music performances still take place.

The Bull and Gate menu covers everything from casual bar dining to more refined recipes with innovative flavours. There is beer battered cod with triple cooked chips, pork and leek bangers, through to salmon tartare with wasabi aioli and pickled vegetables.

On the dessert menu at The Bull and Gate Kentish Town, diners can choose sumptuous treats like ginger pudding with salted caramel ice cream and a honey bourbon sauce. Upstairs in the Boulogne Bar, there are elegant cocktails like the spiced damson mojito, mixes made with Darjeeling Earl Grey, and the signature special called the Kentish Bees Knees.

In a stunning setting with a miniature grand piano creating an unbeatable ambience, The Bull and Gate London is right beside Kentish Town Tube Station.

    I booked the restaurant to celebrate my birthday with my family. It was my first visit to the Bull and Bush and so I was a bit nervous that it would not meet my expectations. I could not have been more happier. The restaurant is in a bright and breezy room and had a lovely sense of warmth and splendor. The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding. As it was Sunday I couldn't resist the roast dinner and it was absolutely lovely the lamb was tender and the vegetables done to perfection. I would definitely come here again

    Bull and Gate was great last night. Barnsley Lamb Chop was excellent, my companions had the chicken which they thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were super friendly and despite the heavy metal crowd hanging out for the gig at the Forum next door, the ambiance was great. The heavy metal guys were very gentle too! Oh and a couple of great margaritas came out of the cocktail bar for us as well as an excellent sazerac!

    Fantastic... all throughly enjoyed the different dishes ordered. My lemon and thyme roast chicken was delicious and the plate was packed full of great tasting veg.

    The staff were very friendly and attentive and loved the relaxed decor and atmosphere.

    Will defiantly be coming back when we next come up to visit our son, who lives in Kentish Town! :))

    Pleasant, helpful staff. Our waitress knew what she was talking about when asked to explain certain dishes. The restaurant had a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere. We were a party of 3 & everybody was very happy with the delicious, well-presented food. An enjoyable evening, & will definitely return. Thank you.

    We went for the Sunday Roast. I've eaten here before so I knew the food was good. The Sunday Roast was absolutely delicious (I had the lamb). Generous portions and very good service. Highly recommended!

    Great place for a pre lunch show. Service was good, maybe few drinks were forgotten but waiters were working very hard. Food was very nice and tasty.
