  • John Bull pub: Venue name, theme changed

    by beijingboyce Written Jan 26, 2007

    John Bull Pub is now Tim's Texas BBQ and, if the opinon of my friends from the Lone Star State are valid, serves up excellent smoked meats (the jalapeno potato salad is good, too). Not the biggest ranks of beer, but the food is good.

    John Bull pub: Great comfort food

    by matteucs Written Jan 8, 2007

    This was my most frequented establishment in Beijing. it was about 1 minute from my hotel/apartment for the couple months i was in Beijing. I loved John Bull pub and will go back as soon as i return to China. The wait staff is friendly and speak wonderful English, much to my chagrin as i was trying to learn Mandarin. The owner/manager is one of those guys you'll never forget and we had a great time getting to know him. We even were given a little going away when we left. The food is wonderful, but is about the same price as back here in the states, or maybe it just seemed so because everything else was so cheap.

    Tuesday nights were quiz night.. hopefully still are. Hone your skills though, those damned ambassadors from all the embassies team up and are almost unbeatable... and we fancied ourselves quite learned.
