The Team

In November 2002 Russell Bullimore started working for his father, Paul, in the querky Llandaff premises – the site where Bully’s had been since 1996. Russ brought a dedicated focus to quality food, his obvious passion for food driving his ambition to propel the restaurant to a new level.

Russell and his wife Vicky took over the business and moved to Pontcanna in 2009 where they live with their children. His wife works behind the scenes doing the books and paperwork but will sometimes make an appearance with the children through the restaurant.

Russell is often managing the restaurant floor and is a good person to speak to if you want wines recommended.
