Climpson & Sons Coffee

Climpson & Sons coffee has arrived at The Bull & Last and we absolutely love it! We’re using ‘The Baron’ espresso blend:

‘The emphasis is on sweetness, with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a lightly floral finish. This coffee extracts a lovely crema, inviting straight espresso lovers and milk-based drink fans alike.’

Available throughout the day and to take away, come and taste the difference.

Gastropub Top 10

Somewhat belatedly, we are thrilled to announce that we have climbed to number 10 in the Budweiser Budvar Top 50 gastro pubs in the UK for 2014, in association with The Morning Advertiser. Revealed in January, the top 50 places us at number 2 in London, which is a fantastic achievement, of which we are very proud. Thanks to everyone who voted for us!

‘So Solid Brew’ and independent real ale

Continuing our quest for the finest real ales the country has to offer, we have followed up the success of our Journeyman IPA with our current collaboration with East London Brewery (ELB), So Solid Brew, a 5.5% IPA. Expect hops, more hops and a pleasing bitter finish. Available now exclusively over our bar.

Beyond this, we source our beers and ciders from the UK’s eclectic range of microbreweries. Whilst predominately London based, you will find offerings from across the country. Regular breweries include Redemption, East London Brewery, Red Squirrel, Clarence & Frederick, Hackney Brewery, Art Brew, Dark Star, Late Knights and more. From light, refreshing pale ales to creamy, heavy stouts, we strive to deliver an interesting range of beer with something for every palate. Come tickle your taste buds…

Introducing ‘Journeyman’, Bull & Last brewed Real Ale

Tuesday 16th April shall go down in history as the day The Bull & Last connected our first self-brewed real ale to the pumps. Well, not entirely. Introducing ‘Journeyman’ , a collaboration with Cornish Crown Brewery and our first stab at making our own beer. At 5.5%, it’s a strong IPA with floral notes, made with Nelson Sauvin and American Cascade hops. Coupled with the water from a dedicated bore hole that supplies Cornish Crown, we’re rather pleased with what we’ve produced.

We would like to thank Josh Dunkley at Cornish Crown for his help bringing our ideas to life. We love beer at The Bull & Last and now, for the love of hops, invite you to come and sample ours. It’s going down a treat!
