Stayed here 2 nights, it is a friendly hotel, busy bar, it is the Lakes! But the staff were very friendly as were the patrons. The bar sells Coniston bluebird, a great pint. The room we stayed in was basic and smallish, but for the price in the lakes it was very good. The food was very good too.

Stopped here for one night recently at short notice - the room (11) was ok, small and with just a sky light window. No en-suite shower (a detachable hose was supplied) but plenty of hot water for the bath. The toilet seat was very worn and I'm not sure the bedding had been changed as there were some long hairs...

It's an essential stop in Coniston, not only for the Bluebird Ale brewed on site but also for the Cumberland Sausage - mmmmm! Great atmosphere both inside and out and for me it's the best choice of Coniston's pubs. Only thing to let it down is dated furniture in lounge.

We called in for lunch on a Saturday in January. Fish and chips, chilli and a couple of drinks each cost us £33. Food was ok, average at best. We both felt it was overpriced for what it was, and that the pub trades on location and name. Service was functional.

We stayed at the Black Bull Inn from 30th December 2013 to 1st January 2014 for New Year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We visited with our Dog and were given a room in the annex which was perfect for us with the Dog. The room was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, you would never know this was a Dog...

We have visited the black bull many times, coniston bluebird being one of my partners favourite beers, and what better place to enjoy a pint with a delicious homecooked meal. On this occasion we stayed overnight in what was a lovely, well appointed, clean and comfortable room. We bought my mother up to celebrate her birthday as coniston is one... More

Been in Coniston to see our friends, and decided to go for a drink. We chose Black Bull because our friend's dog Bernie is getting served draught beer in a plastic container. We travelled all day so my wife decided to have a meal (vegetarian enchiladas) which came out really quickly looked good and tasted good. We had a good... More

Pub visit only: After a short walk on the fells, we drove down into Coniston for lunch at The Black Bull. We were made very welcome and the drinks and food were excellent. The food was very well presented as well as being sufficient to cater for our healthy appetites. We will be back.

Just returned home from a 3 night stay at the Black Bull with friends. It is a rare thing to just feel at home and made to feel so welcome and all the staff here did just that. Great beer, the bluebird bitter and Xb is just great, the food was lovely and rooms good. Breakfast was fabulous and set... More
