Who can resist a pub with its own micro brewery attached ?.Food was tasty and good choices with local content washed down with local beers and good service And you can probably park up your car and walk there and back to where you're staying.

This has got to be one of the best pubs in England. We didn't stay in the hotel, so ours is only an overview of the bar and it's facilities. The bar not only provides the full range of Coniston Brewing Company's' finest beers, but is a welcoming, relaxing, and extremely friendly place to spend a few hours.The staff are...

This centrally located Inn is a gem. We stayed in of their cottages adjoining the pub and it was clean, comfy and warm. The Inn itself was too, with a fine selection of ultra-good pub grub, served up with a good selection of wines, and more importantly- for selfish old me - excellent real ales !

just how a pub should be,it's a great traditional pub with amazing beers, the blue bird bitter that's brewed on site was to die for. We had lunch,sausage and mash was excellent,.however the children's fish fingers not the best quality. Can't wait to got back for that pint.

Stayed in Coniston for the weekend and visited the Black Bull for dinner twice. The selection of ales from the adjoining Coniston Brewing Co are excellent, and I tried a few to be able to make a fair judgment! Bluebird bitter and the oatmeal stout are both worth a try. The food was also very good, pork belly with pulled...

Good quality food, for both dinner and breakfast - cooked quickly and to order. Friendly staff at all times. Excellent atmosphere in the evening. Some bedrooms in a separate annex. Oh, and there's a brewery on-site, meaning that the beer is as local as can be!
