We took the kids here for a bar meal after a nice day out. The place was busy at 5pm but they found us a table. The main menu was great, as was the children's. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. The service was excellent, very efficient and friendly. The beer was good to. Highly recommended.

The town of Corbridge was dressed in all its Christmas lights and after a visit to the Christmas tree competition at the church we ventured to the highly recommend Black Bull for dinner. Packed to the rafters and booked out the manager squeezed into corner and we had a lovely evening with great food and prompt service,.

Generally ordinary pub grub but the place was candle lit and very atmospheric and the staff were very obliging and friendly and we would definitely go again if we were in for ridge again.

We visited the Black Bull whist enjoying a weekend break in Hexham. All the coffee shops in the village were full so we took the oppertunity to visit this pub as it looked lovely and inviting from the outside. We sat in the bar area and ordered 2 coffees and 1 diet coke costing just over £7. The coke was... More

Nice location, nice atmosphere. But the fries were cold. Slow service. And they forgot to put the cheese (paid extra £1.50) in the burger, so the burger became cold too in the time it went back to be filled with it and came back. The chicken from the mains was completely dipped into BBC sauce, like it was tomato one.... More

We eat fairly regularly here and on every occasion the food has been first class and the service excellent. As soon as you walk through the door you get a lovely welcome - even if you are just stopping for a quick drink at the friendly bar. The menu offers a great selection - with lots of pub-style favourites but... More
