Stayed here to attend a family wedding, clean rooms & good service at a reasonable price considering the location in the heart of the city. Highly recommended. Stairs access to the rooms only so may not be suitable if walking is an issue.

Stayed here two nights for business. The proximity to the Liverpool station made this place really convenient. For being on top of pub, it was surprisingly quiet and peaceful in the room. The only issue I had was the standing shower didn’t drain all that...More

Went just before last orders on a Sunday evening. Not made very welcome and the cider I was served probably one of the worst I have tasted. Very watery and flat.

Fine for a pint if you’ve missed the last train from Liverpool Street. The food was dreadful though. Everything was either deep fried or fatty meat that was over cooked. Even the Diet Coke was watered down Pepsi...avoid.More

Description
The Bull & The Hide is the second in The Cunning Plan Pub Company's chain of bars, restaurants and hotels in Central London. The Bull is the ultimate City pub. Seconds away from Liverpool Street Station, on the pedestrianised Devonshire Row linking Bishopsgate to Devonshire Square. The ground floor pub is bustling with drinkers every weekday lunch time and evening; we serve daily lunch specials from 12-6pm; expect home-made sausage rolls or our famous salt beef sandwich. The bar serves a large selection of craft beers, ales and ciders, highlighting a brewery of the week. Hidden away upstairs is The Hide at The Bull, an intimate 36 seat dining room and bar, offering a more refined lunch and dinner menu with delicate dishes such as scallops with lobster bisque and city classics like steak tartare with frites. Fine artwork and soft lighting make this a calm escape from the city crowds below, ideal for business lunches, private hire or romantic evening meals. Above The Hide are seven beautifully decorated boutique hotel rooms with their own private entrance. These are all individually designed, each named after elements of the sites rich history, which dates back to the 1500. On every floor there is a generous pantry to which guests are invited to help themselves.
