Hi, we were in to watch a rugby match Sat. 12th. Great pints and craic. Tried to book a table for dinner at 6.45pm and was told by manager they were totally booked out.
Tried again with the girl at the counter and was told again "booked out". It was only when I asked her to double check that we finally got a table booked.
While we ate our fantastic meals there was 7 empty tables in the lounge and 9 empty tables when we left !!!!!!
The food was fantastic as always and our waitress was brilliant.
I do not understand why they are turning away business ?

My family and I had a lovely meal here last Sunday. We were warm and cosy at a corner table. Drinks came quickly and with no fuss. Service from waitress was efficient despite a large crowd. Food flavoursome and plentiful. Cost reasonable, so all and all a lovely sunday out

Me, Mum and four foot soldiers ate here on what can sometimes be a stressful task juggling kids and keeping them entertained. The food was prompt and staff perfectly acting around the younger kids. Nice grub, locals would think it's slightly more pricey I expect but really it's value for money in a clean and professionally run place. I've been a few times and never disappointed

After waiting 30 minutes for a table we had booked we were shown to a small table with stools. We decided to go back to the gin parlour because the table was bigger and the seats had backs. We had wait an hour for food after ordering off the barman and had to ask him for menus because none of the staff came near us.

I'll be truthful and say this is a nicely decorated and spacious pub. They also do good quality food.

However it is totally out of order for one of the waitresses to listen in on our conversation and report it back to one of her friends outside work. Peoples' privacy should be respected and spreading rumours and gossip because you are privy to conversations in your job is out of order and irresponsible. I'm really disappointed because it lets a good pub down when people behave like this.

As for your friend coming into work and sneering at my friend on the basis of you gossiping. It makes you all very bored and sad people with nothing better to do. You have let yourself and your employer down.

Had a fabulous time in the Black Bull
Service is excellent and the portions are very generous the Gambas and Wings were fabulous.
Mains were varied, well cooked and to perfection.
One complaint I now have to RETURN to sample the cheesecake as I was so deliciously full I had to pass
This is a great addition to anyone's gastro list
Well done and we will definitely be returning

Definitely not what it was , food during the day is a let down , portions poor , reinvented hipster fodder ( * note fish & chips in a basket ) agree with other reviews you just end up with loads of dishes but not a lot of dish ( or fish ) service totally unco- ordinated with 5 different waitresses waiters ( playing with their walkie talkies ???!! ) the order was mixed up , delivered separately for both of us , for the same food ,the chicken curry was pure slop and watery , with very little chicken , watery sauce , chips in the hipster baskets - ridiculously overpriced for what it was and the staff should try Kealys near the airport for a cheaper and better curry ...a pity as the food Breakfast on a Saturday was ok , the back room cosy , and I’ve had good steaks in the past , and all the staff calling - and I mean all the staff , everyone Hi Guys , Bye Guys , here’s you order Guys , especially to elderly parties is not really appropriate or appreciated- Won’t be hurrying back anytime this year even though I pass it daily , and will be trying the alternatives in the area , tip to the management go back to normal plates and basic s! Nearly forgot the deserts , Apple crumble served in a tea cup ...hipsterville if you’re into that sort of thing
