Went for a large family and friends post graduation celebration. We reserved the outside area which was perfect for large crowds. Not usually a pigs in blanket kind of person but the pigs in a blanket were amazing - definitely worth checking out.

In Durham for the day and chose to sit outside at Bull's. Server was polite, engaging, knowledgeable about the menu/beers. Wait time was not an issue. Burgers were cooked as ordered, fries were tasty, beer was cold!! Nice afternoon meal!

A group of about 10 of us stopped in for late night food after a wedding rehearsal. The chicken tenders and fries were amazing! Service was great and the atmosphere was fun!

It was literally a serving of plain flavorless chopped cabbage/carrots........More

Met some friends for dinner/drinks with our kids. It was really nice that as we caught up they were able to run around the grass field adjacent to the porch. Staff was friendly. Burger was good. Beer was ice. Anti-HB2 signage was heartwarming

Me and my girlfriend are British and had a ten hour layover in the middle of Durham before catching a bus on towards Atlanta. So we found ourselves next to this pub and thought why not, we're not driving. We met a lovely couple who...More
