The wife and I took the family to the Black Bull to celebrate our 30th Pearl Wedding Anniversary. Had a great time made very special by the excellent food and staff.

I will come here time and time again. The food is absolutely incredible, and staff are always polite. Came to try Sunday lunch for the first time today after being seriously disappointed at a place down the road, and even though the place was rammed full the food was still top notch! Cannot recommend this place enough.

Visited the Black bull last night 01.04.17 food was delicious , staff were excellent. We started with Mussels 10/10, Prawn cocktail never tried them, Queen Scallops 10/10 absolutely delicious and though both get 10/10 , I would go for the scallops next time as they just edged it , although the 2 with Scallops said they would have Mussels next...

We booked for Mother's Day lunch and was made aware that a set menu was being served. We were not disappointed as there was plenty on the menu to choose from and the price was very reasonable. The starter, main & sweets were fantastic, the beef just melted in your mouth. All the food was hot and plenty. The waitresses... More

Starter was very moreish calamari, followed by smoked haddock mornay with perfectly cooked vegetables. Extremely drinkable merlot set up an enjoyable meal. Welcoming, friendly and helpful waitress and bartender ensuring that we shall be back. Good selection of fish dishes was certainly a plus for us. Sadly we were too full for dessert. Glad we decided to try this place... More

Love this place, husband decided to take us both out for a meal and this was my first choice, OMG, walked in to a little piece of heaven, fantastic character and beautiful coal fire burning, absolutely drawn in by the charismatic young man behind the Bar. Very professional and friendly staff, then came the food. Extensive menu lots of choice... More
