Nice evening meal

Nice evening meal. We eat in the restaurant as the bar menu was limited. In company of three people only complaint one of my colleague starters was over done. Atmosphere was very nice. Good pleasant staff. Would return again

The Black Bull is one of those places that is so good that every night it is busy and at weekend you have to queue and wait to get a table not usually for too long but it is worth the wait. There is nothing on the menu that I would not recommend even the children are well catered for.... More

Dropped in here last Sunday for lunch and went for the traditional Sunday lunch - I had the Roast beef which was good and himself had the Turkey/Ham lunch which was good also.... nothing amazing but better than average!

Was expecting great things after a few friends recommended this place for food. They didnt have the dish i asked for so i went with the pasta , it literally came in a tomato sauce that tasted like pure passata. Would not recommend it. I gave it 3 stars as my starter was great and even though they were busy... More

The restaurant has a car park and garden. The menu is varied and all 7 of our group, including a child and a baby, enjoyed their choice of starters and main course. The staff were friendly and patient. The service was quite slow as the restaurant was full and the staff were running around trying to cope. Management please take... More

Definitely one of the nicest restaurants I know. Extremely family friendly. Owners & staff are awesome and most have been there for many years. Food is fabulous. Superb menu and ridiculously kind to the purse/wallets. Highly recommend that everyone tries this restaurant. Love it!!!!

Very traditional experience, large pub offering great food in a traditional (if dated) atmosphere. Clean and warm, simple but well done. Welcoming and comfortable.

Atmosphere was really neat. Gregarious, friendly staff and fellow customers, mostly locals. Food was great as were the pints. As we did not have reservations, we had to wait for a table. Grabbed a couple of pints at the bar and prepared for long wait, BUT, we got into so many conversation with others, that the time flew by. Service... More
