Two trips this month and the Black Bull is easily the best restaurant in Duns. All the food is well presented and everyone has particularly enjoyed the desert menu. With most main courses under £10, it is very good value too. And Scottish-size portions.

Our golfing party has visited the Borders for the past 7 years staying at various hotels. The Black Bull is the best we have stayed at. Hayley daughter of the owner and chef did a fantastic welcoming job. The breakfasts were out of this world. David Fereday Ryton Tyne & Wear

All the food was fabulous, well cooked and presented. I was especially impressed with the children's menu - more than the usual chicken... More

As a regular visitor to Duns to stay over locally with family near Chirnside, no visit is complete until we've had an evening meal at the Black Bull Hotel. The service is attentive and friendly. The food is simple and always to our taste. Good value too. House Merlot is enjoyable and they always have some guest ales in to... More

This was a cute little place, clean with all the amenities you need; even had bottled water and tea and coffee in the room! The bed was a bit uncomfortable - it was a king size bed, basically two singles pushed together, so there was a big dip in the middle. There were some big spiders too, but I'm really... More

We stayed at the black bull hotel for 2 nights. It was exactly what we hoped it would be. Beautifully clean room with loads of character and quirkiness. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was amazing. A lovely relaxed atmosphere yet very professional. We would definitely stay here again.
