Bucking Bull Charges onto Casual Dining Scene


Food court favourite Bucking Bull has opened the doors to a stunning new concept in Watertown Brand Outlet this month.

Since 1999, Bucking Bull has established itself as an icon of the food court, with 30 stores across Perth, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Townsville, Melbourne and northern NSW.

In what seems as a fitting ‘coming-of-age’ for the brand in its 18th year, the new restaurant not only offers a more extensive dine-in menu, it will also be the first licensed Bucking Bull, soon to offer a selection of beers and wines.

“This move just makes a lot of sense for Bucking Bull, and not just because the market is evolving,” said Executive Director, Dean Vella.

“When you think of traditional, slow cooked food, you naturally think of enjoying this with family or friends in a relaxed, chilled environment,” he said. 

“Our mission was to bring the Bucking Bull dining experience full circle with a real emphasis on sharing and socializing. “

The new menu features hand crafted brioche burgers, sliders, signature rolls, meals, share plates and breakfast.

Most notably, the new menu also expands on the brand’s meat offering with herb marinated roast beef, slow cooked lamb shoulder, roast pork leg, beef brisket, pork belly, pulled pork and ribs.

The new restaurant seats 80 people (150m²) and features rustic urban textures, natural lighting and a feature wall by local Perth artist, Daek Williams.

“We’re really extremely excited with the response so far,” Dean said.

“The encouraging reaction from customers is really important to us, especially as we look at the prospect of opening similar style casual dining restaurants in dining precincts around the country.”

Watertown Brand Outlet’s Centre Manager, Alison Bunn said that the opening was proving to be the perfect addition to Perth’s only brand outlet shopping and food destination.

“The fitout looks fantastic and along with the restaurant’s regular menu, at the Watertown store you can order share platters to feed the family,” she said.

“It’s the perfect stop for breakfast, lunch and on-the go dining for our shoppers as well as workers and residents in West Perth.”

Bucking Bull Watertown Brand Outlet opened on 5th October and is located in the Watertown Brand Outlet, 840 Wellington Street, West Perth WA 6005. Bucking Bull is part of the Aktiv Brands group, along with Skewerz Kebabz.
