  • Fat chips!!!

    I booked this restaurant for a birthday dinner for my parents and as part of the booking I had made some special requests pertaining to a visual and mobility impairment of one of the guests. These requests were catered for allowing the party to be seated downstairs and even to exit through a side door to avoid negotiating the steps. Although it was a Saturday night the service was good with the drinks and food orders being brought promptly. We ordered off the fixed price menu and my requests for 'fat chips' to be served was accommodated- result! The food was a good standard and portion sizes were not overfilling. If I had to be picky I would moan about the size of the lemon tart dessert, too small for something that tasted so nice!

    Nice meal, quick service... but as nit-picky as it sounds, too quick! Would be nice to have a break between courses and also not be served the starter two minutes after ordering so you can enjoy a glass of wine! We were in and out in 45 minutes! Other than that, lovely food and great value.

  • Brasserie at the Bull, Halifax
    SteC
    Dined on 13/8/2013
    Excellent dining option centrally located in Halifax town centre. I had a starter of spiced crab cakes; a main course described as a 'Yorkshire Platter' and a lemon and white chocolate cheescake dessert, all of which were delicious and very well presented. While meat dishes are not usually my main preference I thoroughly enjoyed the 'Yorkshire Platter' consisting of 'mini-dishes' of lamb hot pot; sausage and mash and steak. The service was pleasant and efficient throughout and I was pleased with the value. I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue if on a night out or special occasion in Halifax or visiting the town.

    Dined on 26/7/2013
    I am from the Hospitality industry, this review is honest and fair. This meal was a first date, the venue was chosen with care - out to impress.. We were met by a charming lady, she booked us in,assured me i had the table requested - near a window with plenty to see in case the conversation dried up - perfect start. Sat in the vibrant bar for a while before moving upstairs to the contemporary spacious yet intimate dining room. We both ordered the prawn starter, i had the best fillet steak in a long time and my friend had the wild mushroom and brie risotto, a bottle of rose between two. FABULOUS.The service matched the meal. Sixty quid for a cracking meal for two including a fair tip in the nicest of surroundings. SPOT ON..........

    The table was ready for us when we arrived. The food arrived quickly and just as described on menu with pleasant attentive service from young staff. The staff were helpful without being over fussy. Pleasant, comfortable surroundings. Disabled facility, which was needed by one of our party, was very good.

    Menu lacking great choice compared with many other establishments. fat chips on the plate were slightly undercooked although the wuality of the fish I had was good. Service despite the dining room being quiet was slow with the staff seeming to be more interested in chatting behind the bar than actively on the floor. We were cheching out potential venues for a sepical family meal coning up and sorry to say this has been crossed off the list.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/1/2011
    Me and my girlfriend have been to Brasserie at the bull quite a few times and have always had extremely good service and food. This time I have to say the food was a let down. Our starters were ok but our mains were a let down. I had steak, fat chips and peppercorn sauce which is usually fantastic but the peppercorn sauce was a bit bland and the fat chips weren't cooked at all. My girlfriend had the trio of beef which we had both had before and again this wasn't half as good as usual; The beef hotpot again not cooked as the beef wasn't as tender as usual and the potato on top pretty raw. Hopefully an off night for the Brasserie but we will think twice about which restaurant to eat at next time and probably try somewhere else.
