This is a lovely pub with a great atmosphere! It was busy but this is a sign of its popularity! The food was good and considering how busy it was we did not have long to wait. Would go again!

I used to live near here and visited often to sample the hospitality, food and beer. Yesterday whilst in the area my wife and I called in for lunch and were not disappointed. The same welcoming faces met us at the door of this proper, ancient hostelry and quickly seated and fed us. The food, as ever, was excellent but... More

Stopped off here for a light lunch on our way through Corbridge, lovely friendly staff, bustling atmosphere and the food was good, obviously a very popular place for the locals - good selection of real ales which pleased the husband - wine choices were also good - would return again if we were in this part of the country.

Great place to drop in for a quick refresh whilst out shopping. Bar staff are always friendly. Can seem a bit dark but it's a pub, that can be expected.

I assume that this pub is under new management. We used to lunch here regularly and enjoyed the varied and interesting Menu. The new Menu has run-of-the-mill pub regulars of the kind that made me think of freezer to microwave courtesy of Brakes, but I may be wrong. The Menu is decidedly unexciting,the food average but the service was good.... More

We called in here for lunch after reading “trip advisor” reviews. For a Monday it was very busy with the majority of tables being occupied with other diners. The pub was nicely decorated for Christmas and the real fires and comfortable seating gave it a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. My friend had soup and a sandwich, the parsnip soup was... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our way back to the North East from Scotland. The pub is very pleasant and inviting with staff that were keen to make sure that we felt welcomed. The bar had a good selection of real ales that unfortunately I could not sample as I was driving. We ate in the... More

Having just moved to Ryton we decided to try out some pubs within a short drive. The Black Bull looked lovely and inviting, deco charming,staff polite, but the food was appalling I had a chicken burger that I could not get my teeth into, my husband had steak pie which filling mainly consisted of air. We won't be rushing back.... More
