Visited after seeing a comment on FB about the reopening and how it had changed. Nice relaxing environment. .tastefully done and very welcoming staff. Having looked at the website were not sure whether it was our sort of place as appeared to be a 'pie and a pint' , 'burger in a bun' sort of pub. Not the case. .That... More

Average service, average food (could work on presentation) Young lad we were served by needs to speak up, my partner was having to repeat to me. Restaurant is in a good location, and the ambience is very inviting. Overall just average, could be better!

I booked a table here on the 26th January to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. There were 10 of us and we all had a lovely meal from the lunch menu which was 2 courses for £9.95. Portions were a good size and very tasty. The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. It has had a very... More

I went here for dinner a few days ago and i must say it was lovely. The service was very friendly and the food hit the right spot! Large portions, cooked to perfection. There is a lovely open fire which makes it cozy for a winter's evening. I will definitely be visiting again!

I'm usually willing to give places a benefit of doubt but the meal out we had here was very below standard. The food looked like it had been left standing for a long time and some of the deserts weren't cooked properly. But we were a large party so I can sort of understand to some extent. But the main...

Great boxing day meal yesterday at The Black Bull. Thanks to Alastair for impeccable service on a day where most people wouldn't dream of working! We've tried a few places on Boxing Day and usually find rushed service and rushed food, but this definitely wasn't the case with The Black Bull. The food was even better than last time we... More

I went here this evening with my parents having heard it had re-opened (it used to be awful). However you wouldn't recognise the place now, a true gastro-pub, great decor, nice food, we had a fantastic evening. Gorgeous open fire (although the bar area was a little chilly), great menu, wine and beer choices without ripping you off. It was... More

went in for a family meal in October and was impressed with the interior and design, the bar is small but well layer out and has a good selection of beers etc.... The eating area is very pleasant and has a lovely open fire place and then behind is more space for dinning. The food was good, some dishes better... More

First - and this is very important - disregard any negative reviews of the Black Bull prior to October 2014. The pub has been bought by a small independent pub company and renovated into a very comfortable and friendly pub/restaurant/hotel much as it was when I first came to Godmanchester in 2005. Went there for dinner with my partner for... More
