Lovely Lunch

I was spending some time in Newcastle visiting family, and we ventured out to visit Derwent Reservoir and ended up in Corbridge. A lovely place of stone buildings with independent shops and of course the Black Bull Inn, where we chose to have lunch. The atmosphere was friendly, and we found a... read more

We were visiting the North East and wanted to arrange to have a meal to catch up with distant family who we had not seen for some time. There was lots of talking to be done so we were very pleasantly surprised to find a pub atmosphere without intrusive loud "background" music. At no point were we rushed; the food... More

My family and I have visited this pub many, many times over the years. We have always enjoyed our meals there. Today, my seventeen year old son and I went for lunch but we were very disappointed. The menu changed recently and the vegetarian options are not great at all. I suggested that the management look at other options but... More

Pub lovely decor, clean and very inviting. The staff were friendly. We had chicken fillet with haggis and beef Lasagne, plenty of food and it was delicious. A definite must if you are visiting the area.

I have eaten here several times both with friends and a solo diner. Always very good food and service. Eton mess variants a great treat! No hesitation in recommending.

probably the favourite Pub in Corbridge, and the food is very good, without dominating the pubby vibe. We ate on our first nights stay, and went back once or twice for a drink. It was busy every time, but the large food area, meant that the bar retained its pub-feel.

Mixed reviewers of this place dont tally with what we had here. The staff were helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. I had belly pork with a bourbon and honey sauce which was scrumptious. If we were more local we would definitely go here quite a bit.

Visited on a Thursday evening and the Black Bull was fairly busy with a lovely ambience. The staff were attentive and service was great. The menu was extensive with some great choices and the food was delicious - Welsh rarebit and scallops for starters and then homity pie and salmon fishcakes for main course with a nice bottle of red....

The food here is amazing and also very reasonably priced. Real ales on draught and fantastic service. We'll definitely return. Book in advance to avoid disappointment as it's really busy
