You'll get a fine meal here. The decor is nice and it has a bit of atmosphere. But I've eaten here three times and have never been thrilled with the food!

This was recommended when I first moved to Drogheda in January and I eventually got round to visiting in March. Food, service, ambience was excellent. Have since been back for breakfast and again not disappointed. My favourite in Drogheda so far.

We celebrated our daughter's first communion lunch here with family members, and cannot recommend them enough. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive and we all enjoyed our meal. The food was of a good quality and perfectly cooked. Parking is not a problem, and entrances are wheelchair friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Our family enjoyed the full scampi dinner and the Raging Bull burger in particular. Sunday evening and it was quite busy

The food is very good and the staff are really friendly and helpful. There is plenty of car park space and everything is on the one level, no stairs to climb for either restaurant or toilets. There is a good variety of food on the offer and the menu is uncomplicated. The best place to eat between Dublin and Drogheda...

The food here is really good and there's plenty of it. The staff are very pleasant and the prices are reasonable. While there you should try the heated bench in the smoking area, even if you're not a smoker.

Best spot in Drogheda! I'd give 'The Bull' 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It ticks every box....food was superb, service was brilliant & staff are delightful. Alison looks after us on the night, and she couldn't have done enough. It's a gastro- gem.

Thank Julie D
