New Asheville restaurant: The Bull and Beggar menu, hours, brunch & more

by Jennifer Saylor on July 23, 2013


BeggarsignThe Bull and Beggar is open in the RAD with a wide-ranging menu that reaches from boiled peanuts served at the bar to $100 caviar service–and brunch happens Saturday and Sunday.

Find small plates (butter lettuce salad with Maytag blue cheese), seafood (oysters on the half shell), cheese plates (cave-aged comte with walnut-sage pesto), bar snacks (potted crab, lobster roll, a chicken-liver mousse), sides (fries, roasted beets, green beans), and a short but hearty list of entrees including a $20 roasted chicken and $30 filet mignon with Madeira sauce and fries.

Part lord of the manor and part Asheville chef-entrepreneur creation, The Bull and Beggar menu is all over the place (and not too expensive if you get a salad, a side of beets and and the pork pie). Feel like royalty relaxing at the hunting lodge as you eat your hush puppies with whipped maple butter and consider a second hard cider.

It’s open late (hours below) and serves brunch on weekends until 3 p.m. Reservations not accepted.

    I really wanted to like this place. A very beautiful room, nice people, and a full bar. The beer selection was sparse, but serviceable. But we got two orders of shrimp (which made a dozen), and it was awful. The cocktail sauce was tasteless, and the texture of the shrimp was so disgusting that I literally ate one, thought something was funky, then gagged on the second and spit it out.

    They took only the untouched order off the bill – which still (with gratuity) came to about $27 for a vodka-tonic, a beer, and as it turns out, (2) shrimp. My advice is to give them time to get it together. We’ll try it again in a month or so, but I was very disappointed.

    I also really wanted to enjoy this place. The atmosphere was great. I loved how industrial it all was and beautifully decorated. We ordered Bloody Marys and it took 30 minutes to receive them. Then when he FINALLY took our food order, it took ANOTHER hour to get the slightly average food. I was really looking forward to this place but it fell short. Hopefully it gets it kinks worked out.
