Called into Black Bull yesterday and today whilst on a weekend away in Coniston. Very pleasant drink in the sunshine outside the pub yesterday and a great meal tonight. Between 5 of us we had fish and chips, duck, chilli and veg curry. All promptly served, big portions and very tasty. Excellent selection of beers including some brewed on the... More

an excellent place to sit in the sunshine or the bar if not to enjoy the ales which are brewed on site. very friendly staff, kids and dogs welcomed as well. I did not stay in the hotel, although the rooms looked very nice from the pictures. I only ate a bowl of chips here, but was very tempted by... More

We recently enjoyed a Monday to Friday self-catering holiday in Coniston, and dined in the Black Bull every night. We sent our compliments to the chef on each occasion as the food was excellent, huge portions, well-presented and delicious. Their selection of real ale, brewed on the premises, is also highly recommended and the staff are all very helpful and... More

Our large party booked for early Saturday tea, with lots of kids. The excellent staff went out of their way to cater for the kids' needs and didn't bat an eyelid at any of the requests or general chaos. The food was great. Would highly recommend for families.

We really enjoyed ourselves in this friendly pub. Ale brewed on site is fantastic, in particular the IPA. The beer is priced at standard craft ale prices I.e around £3 per pint but your paying for quality. The food is quite pricey but you get big portions. I had the fish and chips which was around £11. The fish was... More

What a fabulous 3 day break in the snowy Lake District in a hotel that has it's own real ale brewery on site and a roaring fire to warm your toes after a day's walking. A decent menu to chose from a bit limited if you are veggie like us, but great for the dog who isn't who was given... More

What a great pub, what a great hotel, Lovely staff from the top to the bottom. Sue the owner practically jumps through hoops of fire to make sure you are looked after. The food is excellent and the beer superb. the room was spotless and the whole ambience was perfect. We shall most definitely come again.

There are lots of positive things to say about this hotel. The location is lovely, the food is great, the beer is superb, etc. But I think the thing that really makes this place stand out from the crowd is the staff, who were unfailingly welcoming, good-humored, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a visit, even if only to... More
