We were a group of 7 adults and 6 children it was just gone 8pm and they were very accommodating in finding us seating all together even though they were very busy. We all had food and it was fantastic, they were more than happy to help us so most of us also went for breakfast the next day. We... More

Whilst visiting Coniston this week, we decided to pop in the Black Bull for lunch. We were not disappointed! The staff were friendly and even suggested my husband try the locally brewed beer, which he thoroughly enjoyed!!! I had the battered haddock which was beautiful and my husband chose the chilli, which was made with good quality beef in a... More

...as part of the Lakeland 50/100 race weekend, so all the pubs in the village very busy. That said, we never had any problems getting a table or getting served - ate here 2 nights in a row. Good choice of dishes to choose from, all quite good, apart from my friend's fish and chips one night which was a... More

Stayed overnight in July 2015. Our room was in the block of 4 behind the pub so it was nice and quiet. The room itself was clean and spacious with an excellent shower. The pub is situated in the middle of the lovely village of Coniston with the lake just 5 minutes walk away. The pub has its own micro-brewery... More

With good intentions we had planned a short walk around Coniston. No more than 5 minutes into the walk the heavens opened, so we went to the pub. The staff were very accomodating considerring we were dripping wet with a screming 6 month old baby. The food was hearty and really hit the spot. It is obviously very popular as... More

We were in Coniston for a family wedding. Used this place as a place to meet in the evenings. Staff were friendly and happy to accommodate our 18 month old. Food menu was extensive and delicious. We were impressed with the quality. Good range of beer on tap - in particular a fantastic range of local ales.

Called in to the Black Bull on spec to see if they had a room for the night. Fortunately, they did and at a reasonable price for bed and breakfast. Our room was at the end so we had the babbling river just outside the window. The room was great and the bathroom was huge in comparison to most...and the... More

After many visits to Coniston over the last 8years and frequenting The Black Bull on many occasions, we find the beer and food is not good value for money. Beer brewed on the premises at £3.40 a pint and upwards depending on strength and the food, medium sized fish and chips at £11.50 with just a small portion of chips... More

Only called in for a drink at the end of our three day stay in Coniston,we had the same drinks each day but paid a different price each time, all staff were very helpful and friendly but no consistency of prices with the same drinks! Would go again so long as prices go the right way!

The staff were friendly. The accommodation was clean. The food was tasty with interesting specials of the day on offer. Breakfast was good too. It also offered a variety of local. We stayed in one of the outside rooms which was quiet and had a large bathroom and TV in the room. I would definitely return.
