Visited the black Bull twice during November because I had reason to go to droheda. Have to say that the food is very good, and the staff are friendly. However having to wait 40 minutes for a starter and then over 30 for a main course is just too much. Both times the staff apologised and said it wasn't normal.... More

Visited the Bull on Saturday to watch the Ireland match. Really great atmosphere and they were running an offer which meant we each got a free pint of Guinness. Get there early if you want a good seat for the match. We got dinner later in the evening. They had a nice reasonably priced menu with plenty of variety for... More

This place is on my top list for food and drinks. Very nice place with excellent, friendly and professional staff. Must try. Ask the staff about the bull - it's a lot of history of his colours.

Great fooooood! Was so yummy!

So i was like yeah ill have a go. So, I get 2 tiny shrimp on the side in a sauce cup. I... More

We arrived around 6.30 pm on a Sunday evening. We had not made a booking but went on the off chance that we would not have to wait too long for a table. We were lucky and only had a quick drink in the bar before being shown to a table. The decor and atmosphere is very inviting and cosy... More

Ordered a burger and requested the burger to be cooked medium. The waitress informed me that they only do burgers well done and that most places do burgers well done (gourmet burger kitchen always give me an option). Food took a bit longer than expected to arrive, about 30 minutes. The staff member apologised. The burger (some like it hot)... More

Excellent food in a warm and comfortable place. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The starter and the main course was excellent . The proportions were massive. The only negative was I was charged full price when it should have been the early bird but when copped the staff rectified it.
