Lovely setting, friendly staff, good atmosphere. A group of 4 of us visited, and we each had different burgers, all were delicious. Nice variety of sides available, and the food was reasonably priced. We will return!

I dined here three times on a visit to Drogheda and found the service excellent and the portions quite large. On some evenings there is live music.

We visit The Black bull regularly and have never been disappointed yet ,staff are very professional and friendly, food is of a very good standard and reasonably priced,and the pint is always good also, I would have to say this is possibly the best pub and eatery within a radius of 10 miles.
