I went here yesterday for the first time. It turned out to be a great place to escape the inlaws who are in town this week.

Driving up, it looks like has been air-lifted from england. It has a very traditional tudor style and a big shady patio area.

It's near 100 degrees out so I opt for the indoor bar for lunch and a couple of beers. Fairly dark inside with just enough light to make it not feel opressive. There's a long copper-clad bar with big sturdy chairs. The whole place feels 19th century but I see that they will be celebrating their 37th anniversary next month.

Service at the bar was very propt and friendly. I selected the belgian dark ale called Gargamel, looked over the menu, and ordered a reuben with fries. It came out freakishly fast and was excellent. I'm as much a connoisseur of reubens as I am of beer and this one was the best I've had in Colorado. Reasonably priced too at $7.95.

The beers were great too. I followed the belgian with their famous Man Beer and was very impressed.

They also had a vintage beer menu which included Avery's imperial range, some belgians, and of course Hardys' all dating back into the 1990s. Very cool but a bit expensive for my taste.

Overall, Bull and Bush is a great place for a pint and a sandwich. There really should be more like this... but then it wouldn't be as special.

Stopped in for lunch. They had seven of their own beer on tap, and a guest tap list of Belgians, German beers, and some nice regional beers.

Their beers were all pretty solid, and with more time, would've had a few more glasses of theirs. By solid I mean they were tasty representations of the style within the style. No top notch offerings, but above average quality and flavor in all beers.

The service was on point, quite friendly, and at an acceptable level. The food was nice and plentiful, if on the high side of normal price for lunch. The house beers were nicely priced, the fine guest offerings also tended towards the higher price range, however.

There is a high probability we will return to this place next opportunity we get.

Funky old British Pub style place. Really dark inside, but also a really lively crowd. Seems like it's kinda stuck in the 70's/80's, but I liked it.

Quality of their beers were pretty good. Neither were great, but both I tried were solid.

Service was quite good. It was happening on Saturday night here, but they got us a table quickly, and our server was friendly and prompt.

Selection was great. Quite of few of their own beers, (10 or so) plus another 25+ guest brews. So lots to choose from.

Food was quite tasty, and definitely much better than your average pub.

Overall, a very cool and fun old school place. Would visit often if I lived in the area.

I had a pitcher of the Man beer after a long flight. Very laid back atmosphere and it seemed like a drinker's quiet hangout. I would highly recommend it.
