Four adults, 1child sorry teenager 13 on the day! Family birthday lunch. The bar area has been decorated recently, very nice, but, dining section is the same, pleasant, but very hollow sound which makes it every noisy! Food disappointing. Veg soup smelled disgusting, don't know how you could mess up veg soup! The prawn cocktail was basic. I had 'Fish... More

I took my parents to the Black Bill Inn on Sunday 28th June 2015. I had heard great things, so decided it would be a nice treat. We were shown to our table in the lounge and given our menus. It took a while for the dinner to be served, but the food was lovely. However our plates were not... More

I brought my wife for her birthday dinner tonight to our local pub/restaurant. Very disappointed in the service. We were left waiting while others were served before us. We can understand that it was a Monday night but then the food arrived. I can't believe that just because the food is served on a wooden plate it has to be... More

We spent two suppers at The Bull, as we called it. Great presentations and excellent preparation for an upscale gastro pub. Highly recommend it.

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

We rang ahead, literally 10 mins, just to see if there was any available. We were told thered be a few minutes wait but... More
