The Bull & Gate


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.
