Upper Weardale is one of Britain's lovely undiscovered areas (long may it stay that way the locals might well say). There are some wonderful walking and cycling routes - the Sea to Sea Sustrans route passes through here - and the Weardale railway will take you from Bishop Auckland to Stanhope and back at weekends. The railway stops at Frosterley Village en route and the station is about 50m from the subject of this review - The Black Bull Inn.
My wife and I have eaten here on several occasions in the last year with family and friends for both lunch and dinner and can give it a hearty recommendation. It is family run and this shows in the front of house welcome, the olde worlde atmosphere, the choice of ales and, above all, the quality of the food. Menu choice is limited but what is served is consistently good and way beyond the quality of normal pub fare.
Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
