A real surprise

I had a great time at the Tipsy Bull. The Tapas was delicious - the lamb kebabs and the salmon were really good. I’d never thought of myself as someone who would appreciate a wide variety of gins but they have converted me. I will definitely be going back

Delicious surprise!

We dropped in for a quick drink and snack after work last night, choosing the Tipsy Bull because it looked cosier and slightly less hectic than some of the surrounding bars at that time. We ordered at our table, a gin & tonic and a few tapas items - and what a surprise they all were! The G&T came de-constructed on a paddle, allowing us to taste the gin and mix our own perfect creation using an interesting array of garnishes to match (we later noticed their comprehensive Australian and international gin menu ...) The staff and owners were so accommodating and friendly, making every effort to meet our needs, and were happy to discuss menus and make suggestions. Food was fresh and lovingly prepared - flavours were just right and original. The crispy eggplant with black sesame mayonnaise was so good we had to order another one, the gruyere croquettes were to die for, and the buratta was beautifully dressed & plated. We also enjoyed a fresh and lightly made ricotta gnocchi with a glass of Barossa shiraz. The place was pleasantly busy with patrons across all ages, and the owners and staff did a good job of being attentive to all. Decor was understated, taking the back seat to the food and drink experience; lighting was nice and soft. Our "quick drink" turned into an unexpected fabulous dining experience! We'll be back soon with some friends.
