John Bull English Pub (West Palm Beach)
***** John Bull English Pub, 801 Village Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409 (561) 697-2855.
I recently had dinner at John Bull English Pub, an “English Pub” that actually breaks the mold…in that its food is absolutely delicious. I usually find, that these English (and for that matter Irish) pub-joints have food that is borderline-horrendous. Thank God, these-British guys lost the Revolutionary War. Anyway…at this stage of the review, take a look at John Bull’s website www.johnbullenglishpub.com for menu/prices…there is also a photo that will quickly sum up this joint’s dark-wood decor for you.
For sure, John Bull has some “English dishes” like fish & chips, bangers and mash and shepherds pie…but my “taste-test” drifted to stuff like, crabcakes, grilled pork chops, kobe beef sliders, philly cheesesteak sub, shrimp scampi, turkey pot-pie, french fries and onion rings. I got to tell you, somebody back there- in John Bull’s kitchen really knows how to cook, because the food is realy-really good. Prices are sports-bar prices (maybe a buck or two higher)…service is just fine. Your tee shirts/shorts ensemble works just fine here. By the way, the joint has live bands on Saturday nights and other “entertainment-stuff” going on during the week.
John Bull is a rare-find…like I said before, these type of joints usually don’t have great food, but John Bull absolutely-positively breaks the mold. The joint’s menu is packed with appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, meat/seafood/chicken entrees and desserts… I promise you, that you will not have to eat “English” food, unless you want to.
John Bull English Pub is open Monday-Friday 11:30am-2am and Saturday-Sunday 5pm-2am.
Thank God we had…George Washington!
