Stayed 2 nights at The Black Bull, hosts (Sean and Maddie) were friendly and gave us a warm welcome - all staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean and very comfortable, food was good and reasonably priced with substantial, hearty breakfasts provided each morning.

Visited today for lunch and I have to say I've left more than pleased. The staff are great and very welcoming from start to finish! If you order food I advise an extra portion of chips is a must!

I had cod and chips and the fish was lovely. I think what was really nice was that the chips were homemade which... More
