Description: Chris, Christine and the team would like to welcome you to the Daniel Thwaites's Black Bull situated on the outskirts of Bury, close to Ainsworth Village. We believe in the traditional English Pub offering a warm and hospitable atmosphere, where you can meet up with family and friends, have a good chat and enjoy great service, Award winning ales and fantastic home-cooked English food from our friendly staff. Since taking over the pub in 2011, we have achieved an enviable reputation for great food, service & beer. This has been recognised by the fact that we have won several awards, including Thwaites Pub of the Year 2012 Thwaites Best Pint 2013 Great British Pub Awards Best Partnership Pub in the North West 2013 Great British Pub Awards Best Cellar in the North West 2012 Good Beer Guide Cask Marque accredited We have a Smoking Canopy and a Beer Garden at the rear of the car park which is stocked with lovely flowers throughout the summer. All major credit cards are accepted. Our motto is quite simple: "Real Ales, Real Food, Real Pub" We look forward to seeing you soon Chris & Christine

Since the new owners have taken over they have really turned this place around. We probably go here to eat once or twice a month and every time we go the food and service is impeccable. Make sure you call and book a table before turning up as it can get full pretty quickly. Lovely friendly staff who show a genuine interest in how your meal is. I love this place!

Took my disabled Mum in her wheelchair out for lunch and had a great meal. We did book but they had overlooked it!!!!
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and apologetic and found us a very nice table as soon as they could.
The food was great and the staff wonderful and very friendly.
We will be going back again despite the little hiccup
