We just had a 2 night stay here to access York with the children. The room was well worth the price we paid, being spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant was excellent, clearly home made (the steak and ale pie was amazingly good) and value for money. It is situated approximately...

The place is old and the floors above, below & corridor outside the room creaked & groaned, a lot & the fire door outside the room creaked & was in need of... More

Would recommend the rooms that avoid... More

I am not sure how this pub received any standard of recognition by CAMRA. Clearly they do not sell enough beer to feel they should bother looking after it. Timothy Taylor's Landlord was the worst presented beer I have had recently, cloudy and flat... We were asked if we would like a food menu...and when we declined it was clear... More

We booked the Black Bull as we were attending a wedding in the village. Never again! Let me begin by saying that I would not usually go out of my way to write a negative review but I really do not want others to have a similar experience. We arrived late in the evening. The guy behind the bar had... More

We spent three nights at The Black Bull which is a lovely pub with accommodation in the village of Escrick, not far from York. Sam and Chris, the owners, had only taken over ownership two weeks before our stay. They couldn't have been nicer and were very helpful in telling us about local places of interest and bus times, etc... More

Whilst the sign above the bar welcomes you to the black bull, the bar service (and attitude accompanying it) does not. We were made to feel unwelcome at the bar with locals prioritised over serving us. The food wasn't bad but the service was painfully slow. We won't be going back.
