As the title says. The food was dire and when we complained that it food looked unappetising (a cheap bun, some mushed up "pulled pork" and a cheese slice) the reply was "well that's what it looks like" He reluctantly allowed me to get a replacement which still hadn't arrived after 25 minutes so we got a refund and left....

The black bull has always been at the heart of Yarm high street. It's the type of pub that you visit after being away for 5 years and the same old faces are still there. That said the management need to put some money back into the place, it's starting to look old and tatty. It doesn't look good either... More

Although the pub looks traditional and inviting with the log fire. At a closer look it's filthy. The staff were horrendous. Although admittedly understaffed there wasn't that many customers to deal with. The boy behind the bar was very vocal with his 'Jesus christs', 'bloody hells' and various loud huffing and puffing, despite being polite to our faces, the metre... More

I have visited this pub many times for a meal and never been disappointed, good, tasty and value for money, staff friendly, although more that 2 are needed at lunch time, well worth the wait.

Went in here for an afternoon meal on a Sunday. The place was very understaffed with only one lady attending to the back bar, meal orders and serving. A couple in front of us got sick of waiting to place an order and walked out in disgust. We followed them a few minutes later. If was going to take that... More

The Bull has been the centre of social life in Yarm and the surounding area for the past 15+ years and when the outside area at the rear was covered it took some beating, but now there are other competing venues in Yarm, it needs to have a revamp and reinvent itself or it will be just a place where...

Dont drink wine by the glass here; only purchase a sealed bottle. Its loaded with a nasty sulphites (preservative); if you are sensitive it will make you feel terrible the next day, even after only one or two glasses.

Visited for tea in the beer garden on a sunny Sunday tea time. Menu looked fantastic but the food was decidedly average. IMy pet hate is when the menu describes a dish in one way (so you choose something) but you get something else. Eg Classic hot dog topped with fried onions but turns up with no fried onions. It's...
