We'd booked and pleased we did! We were warmly greeted and moments later shown to our table, next to the fire, perfect start! Menus on the table and directed to make our food and drinks orders at the bar - absolutely fine with me this is a pub after all, I can't get away with pubs that make out they... More

We were a party of five revisiting Corbridge for the first time in fifteen years. It was a dark, wet, cold Saturday evening at the end of January 2016. We asked a few local residents where we should eat and without exception they all said 'The Bull'. We arrived before 7pm and the place was warm and busy. Fortunately we... More

I often come to this pub as the food is lush and the staff are really kind and caring. I love the place after it has been refurbished but my only complaint is that the bar area could be a bit lighter. apart from that a great pub.

We've been here a few times before but don't know what has happened. We just wanted a snack so ordered the sharing platter. I'm always suspicious when my food arrives within a very few minutes after we have placed our order this time we had hardly sat down so I wasn't surprised when the low end bought in food was...

Had Sunday lunch here with a friend just after the new year, must say the welcome was very warm, the food, beer and wine was very good and will return when in the area for sure.
