Roger Button left this review about The Bull
Also known as O’Flynns, this Irish pub is a minute’s walk from Woolwich Arsenal station and shouldn’t be confused with the other Bull in Woolwich on Shooters Hill. The original pub burnt down in 1842 and was replaced by the current building with its rough and ready sort of appearance well suited to the area.
The predominantly green interior is a single room with 4 green pillars propping up the high ceiling from which various flags are suspended. TV’s are located at both ends and there is a small raised stage area. The jukebox was delivering a select ion of Kinks/Troggs /Faces and there is also occasional live music.
Since my previous visit they have introduced 3 Real Ales, Youngs Ordinary, London Pride and Greene King IPA, not the best selection you will find (especially given that the last 2 were off on my visit) but prices were reasonably cheap and given that most pubs in the area are ale-free zones, it does outscore severak of its neighbours on that count. Food is also quite cheap and cheerful with courses around £3-6 although one should presumably expect what you pay for.
Although my sporadic visits have generally found the place welcoming enough and it is certainly much improved since my last appearance, it is never likely to be anything more than a quick pint whilst waiting for a train.
