Despite earlier Tripadvisor reviews I stayed in the Black Bull for a couple of nights as it was convenient to do so -and I have no major complaints. It is a typical old English coaching inn, and being several hundred years old, yes could do with a lick of paint in places. I was warmly welcomed from the start, and... More

Stopped off for lunch en route from Peterborough. It's true that the building is battered but the lunch was home-made, piping hot and served with a smile. We both agreed that it was better at £10 for two meals than the £40 we had spent in one of the chains the previous week. Ideal if you are hiking and not... More

Went in for a pint and a game of pool - felt like we were interrupting the handful of patrons when we walked due to the unhappy stares. This pub is in quite a state since I last saw it. I can't say that I am sad to see the dinning room is gone but the current state of the... More

We didn't stay in the b&b but popped in as passing and received a wonderful warm welcome. The meal was home cooked and delicious, absolutely the best curry I have ever tasted. We live too far to return but would recommend the food. Thank you to the lovely bar staff for making our visit special. The pub building needs some... More

I booked the function room for my sisters wedding reception, we agreed a price for the room and a disco but on the day of the wedding they told us that I didn't ask them to book the disco and that it would be another £175. The member of staff basically called me and my friend a liar about the... More

Very basic accommodation - where the tv bracket had been previously mounted on the wall, they had decided to cover the hole with brown parcel tape. The room was quite chilly too - this could have been down to there being a split in the glass of the window! It was only for 1 night and as the races were... More

Stayed at the Black Bull 2 years ago and could not have asked for more, decent sleep, cleanliness, a pint, hospitality, honesty from staff and finally a decent breakfast all for a ridiculously low price. Had to return on business again to Huntingdon and decided to look up my friends at the Black Bull. Same comments again. Owner is working... More

Ive lived in the town for 25 years, and seen management come and go. I dont think it was ever the same after the Woodrows left around 20 years ago. Its got such potential, and its such a shame. How the brewery can read these reviews and not doing something about it is beyond me. I went for a pint... More
