Myself and my good friend had enjoyed a wonderful walk around the beautiful Langho countryside after parking our car on the A59 and following a walk past northcote and surrounding farms. We worked up an appetite, and stumbled upon the black bull just as it was opening for lunch. Service was friendly and attentive, and the choice on the menu... More

Last time we visited the Black Bull it had just closed for lunches while a lot of work took place in the kitchen. So we decided to try again. It was OK but rather quiet. We had a small lunch and it was fine but nothing really special. Maybe things improve in the evening?

Our party of 11, 3 different generations, visited for a family celebration. As the weather was warm we met in the garden which was full of families and couples enjoying drinks in the sunshine. Our younger children played with their friends who live locally and had decided to have time in the Black Bull beer garden. We had booked several... More

Lovely food & warm welcome after being rudely treated at Petre Arms Langho as they didn't seem to like disabled guests. The Black Bull was excellant

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Firstly can I apologise for the wait you had I believe our staff mentioned that there was a delay, yes we have only the 1 chef at the moment and because all of our meals are cooked to order and nothing is ever pre-cooked, this can also often cause delays....

We always stop by as we live in Langho and the pub is dog friendly. On a nice day the garden is simply a stunning place to sit and enjoy food/drink. Only ever tried the salads they do and they genuinely are superb - the Cajun chicken salad (with whatever extras you want to add) is a real treat when... More

Called in for a drink and lunchtime snack. Old building that has been knocked about inside. Still there are pleasant bar areas. Outside garden also. The bar lady was very friendly and helpful. The menu was typical pub grub but there was lite-bite option. This turned out to a good choice. Small fish and chips was ideal and very well... More
