    Enjoy 18th-century style dining at the Bull and Crown Publick House. Built by Minorcan carpenter Francisco Pellicer in the 18th century, this St. Augustine landmark was originally a duplex home for two families. Now you can enjoy British fare and modern local favorites in this restored historic building as The Bull and Crown is part of the Colonial Quarter. The British colonials who lived here in the latter part of the mid 1700s would be right at home.

    Located on St. George Street, the Bull and Crown Publick House provides the feel of an authentic British pub. In fact, it's not unusual to see one of the local reenactors visiting the pub while in historic garb. Like an authentic British Pub, beer, wine, and cocktails take precedence on the menu and the food is delicious. Start your meal with a "Ploughman's Board" of assorted cheese, meats, chutney, and English mustard. Sandwiches include the "Colonial Club," "Union Chicken," and the "Bloody Mary Burger." Meals include the customary Fish and Chips or Shepherd's Pie.

    The Bull and Crown Publick House is located at 53 St. George Street in St. Augustine.

    Seeing the other reviews, I would say things are better now. The service was adequate, perhaps not great. I'm guessing this being a touristy area and the volume of transient wait staff, you will have peaks and valleys in of service in places like this. We were treated fine but certainly not excellent however the drinks and food were pretty darn good. I really enjoyed the St. Augustine (?) drink. I forgot the name but is was a sour drink with a pepper kick at the end that was yummy; thankfully we were not driving that evening. I say take a chance here as it is just as good as any other in the area.

    My husband and I were invited in by the host and sat down on the patio. Several other diners were enjoying lunch and drinks around us. We were never acknowledged or given menus. We watched as other tables received their orders. Another couple came in and were given menus right away. After 15 minutes of being passed by, we got up and left. No one batted an eye. Again, am I invisible or what?

    The place looked nice enough but no one came to seat us until I went in and asked.There was about 10 people in the place and took 15 min to get are drinks only because I asked then she told us our order had been cancelled by the owner so it took another 10 min on the food.when it came the salad had a large hair right on top.We returned it and they forgot the bacon and to toast it.Beef stew in a paper cup with barely anything in it.The owner knew what was going on and didn't correct the problem the waitress took 10 percent off and wanted us to say we did the tour not the real reason she did because of hair in food.There are plenty of places to eat in St.Augustine I would recommend skipping this one

    This was our last meal after four days in St. Augustine. All meals until now were fantastic. As soon asthe drinks came I sensed we might not have chosen well. My soda was brought in aplastic cup and my wife's coffee in a paper cup. I ordered the Pileau which had six mussels, two small, extremely dry pieces of fish, one shrimp, and one clam that was not cooked long enough for the shell to open. This was served on a bed of rice that was very bland although the menu mentioned seasonings. This dish was served in a paper lined straw basket. My wife ordered a bowl of Governor Toynan's Beef Stew. It was advertised as ' fresh beef, carrots, celery, onions and potatoes in our homemade broth. It came in a paper cup with four tiny squares of beef in a thin soup with corn, red beans, onions. It was not a bowl of stew. Overall it was not up to the standards of other restaurants in the area
