After wowing foodies up and down the country, Shoot The Bull have taken up permanent residence in the kitchen of The Old House.

The brainchild of chef Chris Harrison and Emma Herbert, who collectively have over a decade of experience working in restaurants such as 1884 Dock Street Kitchen and The Fat Duck, Shoot The Bull have spent much of the last year ‘popping-up’ at festivals and markets in their custom-made gastrotruck, winning fans as they go with an innovative approach to street food.

At £10 for two courses, the lunch menu is excellent value for money, with options such as blow-torched mackerel with fennel and orange salad, and 36-hour lamb breast with Moroccan couscous. A special mention also has to go to their burgers. Biting into a Shoot The Bull 100% rare breed classic is like tasting a small piece of 1950s Americana, updated with honest ingredients. This is an homage to handheld food.

The main menu, served from 4:30pm on weekdays, includes truffled wild mushroom macaroni cheese, moules frites and a Yorkshire Wagyu steak and chips, which is quickly developing a loyal fan club all of its own. Sunday lunch looks set to be suitably indulgent; start with a Bloody Mary and choose from favourites such as roast beef, pork belly or fish pie over two or three courses. As ever, the emphasis is on quality ingredients, sourced largely from the local area.

Shoot The Bull is an exciting addition to Hull’s food offering and sits nicely with the ethos of The Old House, which has now firmly established itself as a favourite on the Old Town circuit with its welcoming atmosphere and commitment to quality craft beer.
