Glendale >Bull & Bush
Love the ambiance. We had a group of 20+ and I can't say enough good things about the place. The British pub feel was great, it wasn't too noisy, the food looked good, the waiter seemed OK with seperate checks, and the Allgood beer was great. Probably my favorite bar in Denver now.
Great fries but don't plan to have a large gathering here (even 5+)....
Amusing sidenote: Citysearch just refused my first version of this review for using the full name of the establishment! I had to reduce to "B&B" to get it accepted :)
I used to come here all the time for the burgers, fries, and beers. Having 1-2 people was always pretty easy. The waitstaff aren't the friendliest and it's not cool when you arrive during a time when they have the whole "stage" area set aside for a bad jug band, but all in all, not a bad place.
But try to hold a small gathering of people and you're s.o.l! They won't reserve you a table, even though you've just guaranteed them some major income (groups drink more than 1-2 people and a reservation is a guarantee). And don't bother trying to come in on a Friday or Saturday with a group of 5-10 or more -- it's impossible to get a seat at a large round table since there are few and the place is usually packed.
So there goes my guaranteed 12 person huge dinner and drinks bill paid to B&B. Until they can take a reservation, I'll take my business elsewhere.
Not for Parties, or good service - don't even try. In trying to host a gathering here I found the person in charge of large parties the most rude, unhelpful person I have ever spoken with. Even with offering to pay what they would make in a night simply to allow my guests to drink and mingle throughout the bar, she simply replied "We can't do that." Obviously they are not in the business of pleasing their customers. I thought the place was unique when I went there to scope it out. But, they were out of my 2 top beer choices, and it took over an hour from the time we ordered to receive our food, and when we were ready to pay and leave the waitress mysteriously disappeared. If you're short on time or a group bigger than 2 find another place to go.
Meat and Veggies.
I can't believe we never have gone to the B&B before, we moved close by about 6 months ago!
Anyways, the beer was awesome, ordered the Tuesday night Prime Rib special and it was great! I was extremely impressed, especially since I ordered it Medium-Rare and it actually came that way.
The Man Beer (IPA) is a fantastic IPA, highly recommend it for you hoppy lovers out there.
The ambience was pretty cool, layed back (got an error for inappropraite word spelling it the other way), darkly lit, pretty quite considering every table was full.
They have viewable flat-screen, HD TV's from any spot in the house and a really cool, long bar for the singles grabbing some dinner and beer.
The crowd seemed older (30+ish), although we're talking about a Tuesday night, so can't really comment on the non-school nights. Man I'm getting old...
This is definetly a cool place to eat some good food, drink some local brew and have a fun time, whether it is conversing with your estranged lover or watching your B-Ball team trying their hardest to overcome a 20 point deficit.
Great place to go on a cold day!. Great place to go on a cold day, sit by the fire, play board games, and enjoy great service! Really recommend this place.
Blackened Prime Rib and incredible beers!!.
I sat down with a group of 13 and had a wonderful time! The server wasn't truly on point, but was just above average. She did well enough that it was a mistake to autograt us.
The sampler is really cool! Under $3 for a 3 choice sampler of their beers. The pints are under $5.
On Friday - Under $9 for the Blackened Prime Rib special! While you didn't get your choice of cooking temperature, it was very tasty. The steak was perfect on the outside, but a little overcooked toward the center. The chicken fingers were VERY good. The mashed potatoes with the creole beef stew gravy made my day.
The Tower ESB was really good! The Stout was a little light and thin compared to most Stout beer, but very very tasty. The Royal Oil (Barley Wine vintage) was really good. Made me think of a desert wine. The Man Beer was pretty tasty, finished a little too hoppy for my particular taste. The August Fire Lager was a very tasty beer also. Recommend all of them very highly at least to taste.
Enjoyed my experience here - will tell people about it.
It was...ok. my husband and I went for dinner on a Saturday night. The food menu wasn't all that impressive. I was nearly out of luck just cuz I wasn't in the mood for a sandwich. I ordered the fish and chips and wasn't overly impressed. The fries were thin, the fish was heavily battered. I also toured their beer taps and their Man Beer IPA was good, but nothing to write home about. The other beers were even less noteworthy. The service and atmosphere were good, but unless they are having a special event, I don't know that we'll go back so soon.
Excellent service with a smile. Great ambiance..
A great neighborhood bar with friendly service. Tiffany, Harmony, Jimmy, and Breanne all seem to really appreciate their customers. The managers add to the friendliness. The ambiance is condusive to good conversation and the patio is second to none. Food is reasonably priced for the quality.
Not a sport bar but a good number of T-V's. Singles seem to migrate. Excellent family entertainment on the week-ends.
When I was younger and wilder.... in the 70's this was a great spot for that hangover bloody Mary and brunch on Sunday morning. Deciding to try it again after not going there for years.... we were very pleasantly surprised. We got there early, 4ish, and its a good thing. This place, like always, gets busy fast. No wonder. Our meal was very good. I had the all you can eat fish and chips. Its hard to ask for more as the portion is generous. Mrs. Food Snob had a salad, fresh and filling. I was surprised that after all these years, it is still clean, friendly and worth regular visits.
We will continue to frequent this "old haunt". By the way....... for you singles out there..... it still looks like a good spot to meet people.
If it's Friday.... It must be time for Fish 'n Chips at the B and B. Good food, atmosphere, fun staff and the Fish? Wow. It's hot, the sauce has a kick and then wash it down with a pint of ale and your evening is set. Good patio for larger groups or enjoying the Colorado weather. Good menu besides the fish, this isn't your regular pub fare. Give it a shot!
