The food was exactly as described in the menu. Not wildly exciting or different but good quality and tasty and plenty... read more

We called in on spec as we aren't local to the area, the pub was busy and the staff were excellent, friendly and helpful throughout. The Black Bull has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and the food for all five members of our party was very good. The sea bass and pesto mash was delicious. We would happily return.

Staying for a weekend in the North East during June 2015 my Wife and I decided to revisit the Black Bull for dinner as we had enjoyed what we had on an earlier occasion. Although we had not booked a table was made available for us and we were given a warm and courteous welcome. As on our previous visit... More

Wonderful food, service, and hospitality. My family and I have visited here twice recently and on both occasions have had a very personal reception, service, and quality of food. We cannot fault it and hope to return again soon.

Food really well cooked, portion size... More

We chose this pub on the recommendation of our hostess at our B and B, and although the place was extremely busy, the service was reasonable. Equally, the food was moderately good, although my salmon was accompanied by the toughest piece of broccoli I have ever tried to eat. My wife's dish of Lamb shank was fine, but at the... More
