Gastropub coming to West Street in downtown Beaufort


Update September 24: The Old Bull Tavern has finally reached the end of major work, and The Island Packet writes that it's due to open this week.

Being as they're skipping the deep-fat frier, the food lineup should be more interesting than your standard bar fare.

If you make it down, snap some photos and file a story.

First reporting: The old Breakwater location on West Street was due to be a British pub back in early 2011, and even got so far as the beginnings of a rework on the interior before the plan fell apart — and 205 West Street has sat empty since.

Well, now the folks behind the well regarded Al Di La Italian restaurant in Charleston are due to open a British oriented gastropub with good eats and good drinks. Eat Sleep Play Beaufort writes that it's due to open this August with the name the "Old Bull Tavern".

Can't wait.

We'll keep you posted.
