Great food

Recommended by our B&B hostess and very easy to find. Not too busy to get quick service but not dead either and clearly used by locals for meals. Best pork belly ever and a properly kept pint of bitter. Nuff said

Me and my wife had a meal here a couple of months ago and we enjoyed it very much! The staff were helpful, service was decent and the atmosphere was nice. As it was a couple months ago since we last visited, I can't remember every detail but we did enjoy our meal here.

The ambience and atmosphere of the Black Bull is good and the decor very pleasant. However, we found the food to be average (my scallops starter and chicken on haggis main over-cooked a bit and hence dry. My wife's duck was fine, and the sauce excellent, but the veg unimaginative. There were no frills to the service: the wine had... More

Despite being a chain the Black Bull has a 'village' feel about it.The staff were pleasant and friendly, the food was reasonably priced and very good and beer well served.

Fairly busy on a Monday night (a good sign) and while we were looking at the menu on the door a group of four came out and told us what a good meal they'd had. So we took the plunge. It's a dark cosy place, and good if you want an intimate family or couples meal. Food was very good... More

First time in this pub and pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of food provided. Service very good. Only downside was the cider. I usually enjoy Stowford Press, but the Bulmer's cider was undrinkable! I was given a bottle and a pint glass. The glass was three-quarters full of ice, so consequently the cider was very diluted. I drank remaining... More

This atmosphere was bustling on a Saturday night and we had to wait for a table. However the food service was fairly slow even once we were seated. Some of our group were very pleased with their food but my lamb shank was at beast average. The mashed potato was tasted like it had come from a packet. The dessert... More

We went here before going to the local Indian restraint with the whole family (age range from 2weeks to 86years!) and were pleasantly surprised! Everyone was really welcoming and pleasant. The kids sat happily and there was a range of drinks and snacks for all. The seating area was beautifully lot by candle light and the atmosphere was delightful. Reasonably... More

Filthy. My friends refused to go inside when they saw how dirty the floor was. Also too dark to see what you were eating. We went to The Angel, which was packed, but light, airy and clean.

I have just returned from a lovely evening at the Black Bull, Corbridge, a close family of nine of us to celebrate my nephew's 21st birthday. From start to finish everything about our evening was faultless. The staff were happy for us to take a cake, which they brought out for dessert (even though eight of the nine of us... More
