Popped in for a couple of pints with our dog, during our recent trip to Northumberland. Was a great looking pub. All old ceilling beams and horse brass etc. Everyone was really friendly. Good selection of drafts.

It was just across the road from our hotel and the food was delicious. We were told to get there early because, apparently, it is always busy.

We ate here at the beginning of our Hadrian's Wall walk. The pub had a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Great food too!

The beer is great with a wide variety of beers on offer including one of my favourites - Golden Plover by Allendale brewery. Food was good - a little restricted due to short menu on Monday nights - but still would recommend it as an eatery. Very popular with visitors as there were Americans, Japanese and even people from Yorkshire!!... More

On our third visit there while staying in the area, we had a meal. The landlady had previously told us that food service began at 5.30 . When I tried to book a table I was told they didn't take bookings. However she said she would come over to us at 5.45 and take our order. This she duly did.... More

On a rainy Northumberland evening, the Black Bull was a great place to be. Food is really good and portions are copious. Can recommend both the pie with buttery mash and the belly of pork.

Lovely quaint pub. Serving tetley's which, was fantastic as it makes the best shandy. Warm and welcoming. The food was good and the portions huge. In the winter with the open fire on it would be very cosy.

This place was amazing! I'd never been here before and myself and my partner decided to go on a road trip. He had been here before and recommended the food. When we arrived, it's a cosy little pub, with a great selection of drinks and friendly staff. They serve food, which was amazing! It was one of the best meals... More
