Food was average at best , service was ok but when your charging these prices food needs to be good and it just was not. Will not return in a hurry.

Not our first visit nor will it be our last. The beer is first rate if you like real beer. The food order was taken promptly as usual. As all meals are cooked to order they aren't on your table straight after your order is taken Be prepared to wait. There's a grand steak selection and a reasonable choice of... More

We have called here on a couple of occasions now for Sunday lunch, as it is the halfway point between my sons home and ours. On both occasions we have had a very warm and friendly welcome, excellent food and service.

Food was tasty, with good portions. Good chips and ice cream (not together!) Fish and chips particularly good. Even though I ordered chips it would have been good to have some veg!

Came across the Black Bull and we are pleased we stopped, the ambiance is superb as is the food, my "Barnsley Chop" was as good as any I have ever had, veggies were fresh and first class and my "Sticky Ginger" desert went down a treat. What a pleasure to have linen napkins in a pub. Thank you.

Good food but a little more variety is needed. A nice pasta dish would be good. Pies are excellent so is the Black Bull fish and chips. Maybe a curry every now and then, or the good old ham on the bone, egg, and chips. Lovely village location with nice walks. The pub is dog friendly which is nice to... More

As visitors from faraway, we were treated to dinner here by our kind hosts. We were delighted. First, the thatched roof and low beams of the establishment provided atmosphere in spades. Service was very friendly and helpful. The range of beers and ciders impressed. The meal itself was absolute delicious. My garlic prawns were choice. The chicken was delectable, as... More

I had Tiger Prawns which from the description I had expected to be like the Spanish classic Prawns Pil Pil but it turned out to be just 3... More

Visited one Saturday in April. Our first visit in about 18 months. It’s near one of our favourite caravan sites and the dog is always welcome too. We were shown to our table (by the typewriter that is not a toy) and orders were taken by a helpful young waitress. I suspect she was relatively new to this but she... More
