A little bit of history...
From catering company to UK burger domination, let us take you on the journey of how Chris has grown Shoot The Bull & Solita into what it is today.
Chris starts shoot the bull, taking the leap from being a head chef in a fine dining restaurant to serving food from the back of his car!
Shoot The Bull fast attracts customers and goes from strength to strength, winning a British Street Food Award along the way.
After working as a pop up in The Old House, Chris decided to take on the whole business and opened Shoot The Bulls first venue,. The gastropub became an award winning restaurant and even attracted the renowned food critic Jay Rayner.
Riverhouse Coffee Co. was launched in a empty space next door to the pub, this grew to four outlets before Shoot The Bull moved on to concentrate on other business.
Shoot The Bull took over the Solita brand with two venues in Manchester.
A difficult year was ahead but with perseverance from the team they launched online shops for restaurant kits and ran takeaways from all their venues to survive the national pandemic
As restrictions lifted Shoot The Bull seized opportunities to take on venues that had become available. Now operating 7 Solita venues focussing on 100% British Wagyu, The Old House Gastropub, Hull Truck Theatre and the ever growing Street Food and Events company!
