We enjoyed our visit on Saturday evening. Ali made us really welcome. This is a beautiful village pub. We came to listen to Tom McConville( "The Newcastle Fiddler ") who was on top form. We look forward to returning soon. Thank you Ali, Tom and Andy for a great evening.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A traditional English pub in the beautiful village setting of Matfen. Serving a choice of four excellent local real ales every day as well as a good choice of well-known and well kept beers, fine wines, spirits and soft drinks. Food is served Thursday through to Sunday and although the menu is small, it is perfectly formed. We specialise in creating meals to go with our ales and wines such as our famous Ploughperson's plates, cheeseboards and steak sandwiches. The autumn & winter menu is made up of real soups and stews - proper hearty stuff. Everything is made in our kitchen and is of the very best quality. Please note that we are not a restaurant as we believe that the traditional pub feel is very important. The Black Bull is everything you would want of a pub; warm, welcoming and friendly. Our games room includes a pool table, darts board, cards, dominoes and board games as well as a juke box and comfortable seating. From September 2013, music will be taking centre stage with well-known folk and traditional musicians playing for us every month. In addition, every Wednesday night, you can bring your own vinyl records in to play on our proper stereo. We look forward to welcoming you soon. Winter opening hours: Monday - Wednesday 4pm - late. Thursday - Saturday 12noon - late. Sunday Noon - 10pm. ... more less
