Stopped off here for a late lunch on our way into Pickering. The pub was busy, but we found a table and ordered drinks and food. Food was good - Black Bull Burger was big and tasty, and sandwich good. Chips a bit greasy - but OK. A selection of ales - the Black Sheep was good. We have two... More

Went for an evening meal. Service was pretty good but the food was terrible. Lukewarm dried up chips,some of the meat in the steak pie was also hard and dried up. And the giant Yorkshire filled with thin stringy beef was overcooked and burnt round the edges.The pub was full but don't know why! Certainly won't be going again!

The website encourages you to book online which was handy because while we had wifi - the place where we were staying had no phone / signal. However I should have known better because they were not expecting me. The place was obviously v busy and other people were waiting for a table. We were made to feel welcome though... More

£4.40 for a Pint of Cider that tastes like Vimto! Only £4.20 on the showground for a Real Propper Cider, Drank up and went accross road to Spencers £2.50 Cheap yes but Enjoyable for your Hard Earned Money!! We don't mind paying for an Expensive pint but We Hate getting Ripped off. Won't be back to the Black Bull Pub.

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

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
