I've eaten a few times at the Bull Run and have always enjoyed the meals, the staff also generally have been friendly and helpful. If you enjoy your steaks then you won't be disappointed although there are other options, I always get drawn into the steak options. Every time I've eaten there it seems busy and happy, which I think is always a good sign for a restaurant. I'm sure if you give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Meals are always wonderful. The selection is wide and the quality is great. The wine list is good so loads of options to pair with meals. The only challenge is related to the construction taking place which makes parking a nightmare.

Walked in and greeted by friendly staff. Sat at the bar whilst waiting for associate and inter acted with barmen. Great attitude.

Moved to table once we were ready and proceeded to order mains and onion rings for the table.

Partner had a burger which was good. I ordered the ribs which were awful. Dry and over cooked.
Asked for extra basting source just to cure the dryness.

Sent the burnt onion rings back. Waiter had no idea the rings were burnt. REALLY.

Used to stay at the alongside hotel years back and enjoyed the restaurant but clearly it has deteriorated..... And in the heart of Sandton.

Needless to say I won't be back there

We had lunch here, and probably not the restaurants fault, but we ended up with 3 platters of sasuage rolls, deep fried prawns, deep fried chicken, deep fried spring rolls and 3 individual salads serving 20 people. It tasted old and oily and just not fit for consumption, again i do reiterate that the choice of food had nothing to do with the restaurant, however the execution was their's.

I've eaten steaks in some of the finest steakhouses in the UK and the filet mignon I had here would easily compare are top them! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the restaurant was comfortable and clean. I would seriously recommend this place, it does help if your hotel was next door like mine :)
