First and foremost this is one of the better burgers I've eaten in Cork. I didn't go for anything out of the ordinary, 'The Bull' is a fine burger, cheese, salad, 'special sauce' and a patty that was moist and tasted appropriately beefy. The bun was light and airy but substantial enough to not fall apart. It's hard to believe that this formula can't be achieved by more restaurants.
Burger was accompanied by thin fries, which were well seasoned and crispy. I consider €13 to be on the higher end of the spectrum of what a burger should cost. The ingredients are good quality, the service was extremely attentive (asked 4 times if we were ok... little bit too much maybe).
Draft beers are limited to Heineken and Tiger (I think) and some more variety added by a selection of ales and craft beers.
Not a big fan of the decor, I don't know what to make with the smudgy portraits. Very odd. Regardless, the place is comfortable and at early evening was generating a healthy buzz.
I'll be happy to eat here again though I'd welcome some early bird pricing or mid week specials. A burger and a beer will come to approximately €20, a sum which other restaurants in the locality have pitched some really excellent early bird deals.
