Good old reliable

We have been to the black bull so many times. Its always been 1 of the most reliable spots to eat. The reason im giving a 3 rather then higher is based on our last visit. We rang ahead, literally 10 mins, just to see if there was any available. We were told thered be a few minutes wait but... read more

The other night we went to the Black Bull for our dinner, I usually enjoy this place, the food is usually good and it's very handy if you have a little one. On arrival, I asked could we sit in the lounge area by the windows in the back, as there were only 3 of us I was told that... More

Having given 10/10 for our first visit to The Black Bull in Drogheda it saddens me to report all was not well on our next 2 visits. On the first occasion my wife ordered rack of lamb and what arrived out was the worst lamb I've ever been served in a restaurant. Apart from my gripe about the size of... More

Delighted with this find. Went here for a meal for a friends birthday and it did not disappoint. Food was excellent, great menu with huge selection and not overly priced. Staff very friendly and attentive and food delivered in a timely manner. The rum and coke chicken wings are to die for and the steak sandwich is delicious.We didn't have... More

We loved everything about this establishment, the service, style, comfort, ambiance, food quality, portions including attention to detail as in candle and flowers and good quality cutlery and delf etc. We, don't usually return to same restaurant twice when on a short break but we really did not wish to eat anyplace else while in Drogheda. Apparently it has been... More

I visited "The Bull", as it's known locally, on a Thursday evening for a quick bite. My daughter and grandchild were with me and all three of us had a great meal. I wasn't particularly hungry so I had the goats cheese salad (starter) which was delicious, my daughter had a 'Sizzler' which I helped her to finish and my... More

Was in the bull today for lunch. The waitress told the special said I would have it and was glad I bit. Perfectly cooked burger was only surpassed by the pepper sauce . Best pepper sauce I have had in a very long time . Hope it's on the next time I am in .

I'm a regular in the Black Bull and I have to say I highly recommend it. Their big menu means I never tire of eating there - their steaks are some of the best I have ever had; the scampi is always tasty; the sizzlers are fun and I just love their spinach and ricotta canneloni when in need of...
