Stayed here July 2015. Pleasantly surprised with the whole setup, nice that the rooms where separate from the pub so that there was little noise, which was a concern when we booked. Parking right outside the room, just perfect. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Everything had been thought of. The staff were cheerful and helpful. Luckily we only... More

After a great day at Flamingo Land we came to stay here. We found the staff very helpful, check inn was quick, room was everything it said on the site and clean. The food and service was brilliant for evening meal and breakfast.

Stayed here for one night after visiting Flamingo Land. We arrived at 18.30 absolutely soaked from the Log Flume ride but despite the place being packed with diners and drinkers within minutes our clothes were being dried without even asking in the hotel's laundry room. The Family Room was simply beautiful, clean, fresh, spacious, absolute delight. The main meal was... More

Visited with my mum and our dog (sage) for a light snack. It was a nice day and we sat outside, sage was welcome out with us, and he was allowed to walk to the garden through the pub. I am unsure whether dogs can sit inside while you eat though. Staff were friendly and helpful and I although I... More

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

Just arrived home after a weeks stay at the black bull caravan park, while there we ate at the black bull inn 3 nights. The food we were served was good value and just the right size portion for use and the 3 kids. Already booked for our next visit in August. Staff were excellent, helpful and friendly, was sorry...

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
