I have been having a bite to eat here for over 7 years and the word that describes it is consistent. The menu changed again recently but has maintained the favourites like the Bull McCabe and the Sizzlers. The staff are well trained and know the meaning of customer service. Great value and we'll worth a visit

Fun pub, good atmosphere, nice decor with plenty of seating options. You can't eat in the bar area though and have to head to restaurant area. Tasty food with a large selection. No complaints!

Our group of 7 dropped in here on a Wednesday evening at about 8pm. There was a great atmosphere and the decor was really lovely. The restaurant was very busy but within a few minutes they had managed to find us a table together. We all had lovely meals and the service was excellent. I would definately return here again.

The owner of the B&B (Killowen) we stayed at in Drogheda recommended Black Bull and it was great! Tasty appetizers (like the wings), just right fish and chips and the kids finished every bite of their meals (chicken goujons), which rarely happens. Our waitress was really friendly and the dining area was cosy. We liked it so much, we came... More

If you like your steaks rare, this is a place to try. We had some of the best rare steak we have ever had here it just melted in your mouth.

We're a family of 5 with a baby. We went to the Black Bull on Saturday evening.The bar and restaurant were packed. We were told that we would have to wait 20 minutes for a table but we were called after ten minutes. As the bar was full we had to stand in a packed bar holding a 1 year... More

Visited here with family early evening for a meal, very busy but seated immediately and order taken promptly. Great choice of food, plenty of options with an excellent amount of vegetarian dishes. Only downside was the amount of time for meal to arrive, server did not say how busy the kitchen was and I had to ask two servers where... More

It was within walking distance of our residence in the Orley House so we dined there twice. It was average good food, but not as good as some of the other outstanding restaurants we ate in in Ireland.
