  • Visitor Information

The Bull & Gate, a much loved unpretentious north London pub with a long-standing reputation as a quality live music venue, will cease operating as a live venue on 4th May 2013. The Kentish Town venue gave many well known bands their first gig before they made it big - including Blur, Coldplay and the Manic Street Preachers, to name just three. The Young's brewery chain plan to refurbish and reopening the building as a 'pub restaurant'. Young's also own Geronimo, the chain has two other gastropubs in the NW5 area, The Lion & Unicorn and Lord Palmerston, so can you expect something similar to be revealed here in the summer.
