A unique and inviting pub, right in the heart of Kentish Town. A diverse trio of spaces, all exuding class and contemporary comfort combine to create this beautiful pub. Perfect for a romantic evening or a catch up with old friends.

This swish, historic gastropub conveys a charmingly majestic feel, with its ‘Boulogne Bar’ that is dressed sophisticated in deep blue and adorned with mahogany antiques, ornate gold frames and even a crystal chandelier overhead. The huge Dining Room is however left deliberately more rugged and, reminiscent of the Mad Hatter’s tea party, is peppered accordingly with a haphazard collection of tables and chairs. Finally, the front bar speaks style with its more modern approach balanced with a collage of vintage portraits and intricate ceiling relief.

Private hire is welcome at the Bull & Gate if you hope to experience the gastro more intimately and whilst all the food is lip-smacking, we’d suggest the flamed mackerel escabeche with pickled rhubarb and wasabi dressing.

The food was good but unfortunately the service was incredibly slow. We waited an hour before I had to remind the waitress we hadn't made our dessert order. Also, when I asked for coffee I was told the coffee machine had been cleaned and therefore I couldn't have one. However, as we were leaving I saw a large table of people receiving coffees. visited The Bull & Gate on 24 Oct 2016

Four of us had Sunday lunch - hearty and filling! The nicely refurbished interior decor keeps to the original character of the pub. A quiet table in the bar looking out onto the street met our requirements. The bar staff were friendly and helpful. visited The Bull & Gate on 16 Oct 2016

I booked the Boulogne Bar for a day to film a fashion film and myself and the crew could not have been happier! Everything went as planned, the food was fantastic and Fraser and the bar staff couldn't have done a better job looking after us! It was an absolute pleasure filming at the Bull and Gate and I will definitely recommend it as a location, as well as a place to go for lunch/dinner/drinks, to others. Thanks for everything!
