Had the best rump steak, cooked perfectly. Have tried this before several times. Quality of meat did deteriorate over time. But with a new manager things have improved. Very happy customer. Staff were excellent, polite courtious and friendly.

You'd be hard pushed to find a finer real ale pub in Yarm. In fact, we believe The Black Bull is unrivalled in its choice of quality cask-conditioned beers and carefully compiled menu of British pub dishes. For directions to our landmark pub, see the interactive map to the right.
