“My favourite bar in Rothesay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

This place is quite nice. It is a bit dated but that is what I liked about it to be honest. They have some great real ale and the place is very friendly too.

“Christmas in June”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Stopped in for a drink and a bite to eat, staff were very friendly and helpful as were the punters. Food we had was very good. and range of drinks was impressive, staff encouraged you to try before you buy :-) During our visit a few people came in to book tables for that evening so seems to be very popular

We popped in again the following evening to find the pub decked out for Christmas and had good laugh with others. didn't eat in the evening as we had ate before arriving but were impressed with the servings we saw. Again staff were very friendly as were the clientèle.

“Good Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

The black bull has managed to incorporate services to tourists in the front where meals are served, with an area at the back where the people are clearly locals as they all seemed to know one another. Staff very friendly and would certainly recommend a quiet drink in this pub.
