Great pub menu. My wife and I had to book, and good job we did, as they were having to turn people away who were walking in on the off chance. The food, service and the ambience were fantastic. Very reasonably priced too. Highly recommended... But do book first!

This was the third time of visiting and on all occasions we have not been disappointed. It was a lovely day so we sat outside for our lunch there is limited tables outside so you have to get there quick. The food is very good and the service is excellent on all visits.

As this is a very popular pub restraunt it is advisable to book a table especially at weekends. The real ale is always good and the food is consistently good as is the service you are always made by David Linda and the team.

The Black Bull is a very nice pub, with good service and better food. We only stayed for dinner and left shortly after, we were exhausted from the day. The salmon we had was very well prepared and the peas, carrots and potatoes were not overdone. For dessert we had the chocolate flower pot, this was delicious and if you're... More

I ate here three times during my week in Corbridge, and was very impressed by the selection reasonably-priced dishes, and the attentive service. The wines were excellent and were exceptional value, especially the Spanish rose. If I lived here, this would be my favorite pub/restaurant, whose food approachies fine dining standards.

A lovely setting in a beautiful town.quite historic nicely renovated comfortable and spacious.Fast efficient service , food hot and nicely presented. All fresh vegetables delicious gravy the meat was a bit disappointing we put this down to the fact that lunch was almost over its a pity because it was a good meal and it could have been great.
