Lovely meal although we waited for 70 mins. And the restaurant was not full.They have a new extended kitchen but only one chef .The staff work very hard and the owner swans around with a glass in her hand.Not impressed.Probly won't be back.

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

Enjoyed revisiting this pub, enjoyed relaxed atmosphere and enjoy playing the occasional darts. Wish new people all the best in making Black Bull more interesting.

Well I walked in on a sunny friday evening and heard karaoke and thought - here we go!.....but to my amazement it was really enjoyable! The atmosphere in this place is lovely. Quiet areas, buzzing areas it seems to have it all. It even had traditional pub games such as darts. I just had a bowl of chips but Ive... More

Very disappointed! We booked a family meal for 10, arrived at the pub to be greeted and seated in the restaurant area. We had a look at the menus (that were provided) but as we came to order, we were told that they were not making any more food (this was at 5pm!) so we asked, why allow us to... More

Booked a table for 12 family members had to wait a while because they were so busy but the wait was worth it. The food is gorgeous plenty of it and excellent quality. Especially recommend the roast dinners they are to die for. The landlady and landlord have turned this pub round and should be proud of themselves. Well done... More

We organised a beautiful 5 mile run from this venue down to the suspension bridge and arranged to eat here afterwards, they were most welcoming when we booked and offered us a 3 option set meal for over 30 of us, really generous portions and most enjoyable cheese pie! All really enjoyed our sunny evening out in the Ribble Valley.... More

We had eaten in the Black Bull before and enjoyed it and decided to go for lunch. It was Friday and quite quiet, probably because Euro football was on. The food was really good three of us having the fish and chips and the other having salmon in sweet chilli sauce.we couldn't fault anything. The landlady was very friendly and... More
