Outstanding food - best presentation for pub food. Try the steak and ale pie. Worth waiting for a table.

You can't get any more pub-by than the Black Bull. Built into a 12th century pub, this gives the typical visitor or local the typical pub experience, complete with the type of food your would expect at a pub.

Very friendly service, good food, great atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Excellent pub experience. If you're in the area to visit Hadrian's Wall, worth stopping in for lunch or dinner.

Not a lot to say. Barmaid very friendly, scampi and chips good but at around a tenner so they should be and you can't really mess up frozen scampi can you? Not somewhere where I would rush back to.

The food was excellent, and the portions were huge. I didn't get as far as dessert, which was disappointing as the selection looked good. If I went again I would consider having starter & dessert. Booking is advised as it was very full.

Coal fire, great food and friendly service. Good value too. Well hidden so you have to look behind the market square to find it.
