Very rude landlord who obviously does not need our custom. He snapped at my husband because he was unsure of what I wanted. We stopped there on our way to Hull and had a pub lunch. The famous Yorkshire pudding was burnt to a cinder and tasted vile. Shame really cost it is in a nice location. I would not... More

Stayed at the Black Bull Inn for 2 nights as my husband and I plus two friends were attending the 1960's weekend on the NYMR. This is a lovely wee hotel and the accommodation is excellent. The food is also superb with plenty of choice for everyone. Breakfast is buffet style depending on the amount of guests booked in. We... More

We dined here last week while on holiday in the Pickering area. We had previously been in the Bay Horse but were turned away (despite having a table) because they were too busy. The Black Bull was incredibly busy but when we ordered they managed our expectations by saying there would be about a 45 minute wait. This was no... More

Went here twice whilst on holiday, although very busy the staff accommodated a take for 10. The filled Yorkshire pudding was massive and delicious and was worth the wait for the meal. Would definitely visit again should we return back to pickering

Visited on Sunday after the Game & Country Fair, Main meal was good value for money, I thought the service was appalling. Cutlery was slammed on the table as the waitress walked past. One of the waitresses tipped food on one of us, never apologised, offered to replace or clean up just laughed & walked away. When serving us or... More

We stayed on the Black Bull Caravan site and asked at the Inn if we could have our meals to take out which they were more than happy to do. Unfortunately, the meals we ordered where nothing like the meals being served in the restaurant. The food was practically inedible. The chips had clearly been cooked earlier and reheated, which...
