We come to this pub on a regular basis for their steak night (Wednesday). It's great value and really good food with good service. Usually the steaks are cooked to perfection but on our last visit one of them was slightly overcooked. The staff were absolutely perfect in the way they handled us and brought us a new steak straightaway.... More

Pate and mussels for starters were nice, main meals were very average- Thai veg curry, scampi and a... More

The most vile and rudest landlord I have ever met in my life ! I wasn't happy with my meal, the ham tasted off. Instead of doing what a respectful landlord should do, and apologise and change it, he instead insisted there was nothing wrong with the ham, he REFUSED to offer another meal (unless I paid again might I...

When we got there we had to queue at the bar for several minutes just to announce our arrival, we were then left standing for several minutes mor before being 'pointed' to our table. After 15 minutes we still had no drinks... More

Visited The Black Bull for the first time one Wednesday night after work at around 1730hrs. The pub had quite a few people in already socialising, creating a nice atmosphere. We were greeted with a friendly smile and informed the staff that we had booked. We were asked if we wanted a drink and then shown to our table. The... More
