After our miserable experience in the hotel down the road we popped in here for a bite to eat and a pint. We were welcomed by a very helpful barmaid/landlady? and a roaring log fire. There was an extensive menu being served all day. We both chose the warm beef baguette. We couldn't believe the size of them when they... More

My family and I choose the Black Bull Inn for an evening meal, it didn't look like much from the outside but was very cosy with the fire lit, and a great place for food, I fair enjoyed the atmosphere and my haddock was one of the best i've had. Service was great and helpful

My hubby booked 2 nights here as we were going to flamingo land and travelling down from Scotland. We had a good stay here, the accommodation is basic, chalet type rooms. Clean enough, but could have been a bit more attention round windows as they were quite grotty looking, but everything else was fine. Shower, sink, bed etc all very... More

When you eat & drink the chances are you want the toilet afterwards at some point, but if you happen to be a full time wheelchair user you can't do this when visiting this establishment because they don't have a big enough disabled toilet in the building, The pub itself was extremely dirty & tatty.
