Just been for a meal at The Bullitt to see what the hype was about having read on here as well as hearing from friends. We were the first customers of the evening so were well looked after but noticed that this was the case for everyone as the restaurant got busier. The menu was well explained and dietary requirements... More

Restaurant justifies its top rating. From the moment we arrived on a busy Saturday night, with attentive welcome, assistance with our table preferences, to the great value for a very enjoyable dinner, you can't go wrong. Everything was a near perfect as you could hope for. Really nice touches like being asked to attend the meat counter to select your... More

Visited for the first time Saturday night with my wife, having seen all the reviews on Tripadvisor. Were not disappointed. Great home made burgers. We chose the carnivore ones. Washed down with local Redwood beer. Followed by a delicious fresh pineapple, coconut sponge and ice cream dessert. First rate service, polite and knowledgeable hosts. We will be returning in the...

There are plenty of cheap burger joints on the front at Great Yarmouth, this isn't one of them. The Bullit serves a small range of meals including several different burgers which are all cooked to perfection. Our family meal at the Bullit was supposed to be a romantic meal for two until the kids had to come with us! Neither... More

We went here to watch Spain v Portugal in Euro 2012, and had a nice, relaxed drink together while I watched the game. She drunk a spirit called Norfolk Nog, and I had a couple of local ales of which the names I can't remember, but they were nice. The bartender, who happened to be Italian, was very chilled out...
