Went here 2 weeks ago to celebrate a 60th birthday, we had 11 adults and 6 kids! All our food (starters, main, and desserts) were served together and hot! A warm welcoming atmosphere! The bar is also a great spot for pre or post dinner drinks! Staff were fantastic and very accommodating! Would highly recommend!

I haven't been to the Black Bull in years but I had heard only good things about the food... and I wasn't disappointed. The menu is slightly confused as there isn't just one type of cuisine to choose from, but at... More

We have eaten in the Blackbull on many family occasions, because the quality of the food and the service can always be depended on.

Just back from lunch at the Black Bull. Went into bar on the right as we just wanted a casual lunch. We weren't offered menus, we asked the people next to us for theirs. It was very busy so this didn't bother us really. My partner went to bar to order food and our drinks. Our drinks came over immediately... More
