A lovely little pub, lovely owners. Just feel the place could do with a revamp. We ate there two nights in a row, had steaks the first night & roast dinners the second. Seemed to be an awful lot of staff walking around, table was sticky which we drew to the young girls attention who served us. She did seem... More

What a fantastic place to have Sunday lunch. We have been several times now and we are never disappointed. The staff are lovely, it's great for the kids & the food is wonderful. A real gem of a pub. Very friendly.

Very good. Dropped in for our tea. 2 for £12 main courses served Monday to Friday 12 to 6pm. Both of us had petite fish chips and peas. Lovely fresh fish cooked in lovely batter. Chips good and mushy peas and tartare sauce. Size adequate.

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
