Thought we'd try here as been to other sizzling pubs & what a big mistake.. Food tasted like it had just been heated up in microwave.. No sign of a landlord or landlady(can only guess there isn't one ) steak was like chewing a rubber tyre !!! Won't be returning

First time there and the last I would think. Had surf and turf and asked for medium on the steak . It came rare.we should have sent it back.Yes the food is cheap. The decor is average. Staff were OK.

On a family visit to nearby York Uni we decided to have a meal at this place which was the nearest to uni. Drinks were cheap and so were the steaks but the three of us who ordered steaks couldn't eat and chew them bearing in mind we have full set of teeth lol burgers and ribs are fine, the service was good and plenty of parking outside. Would go there again but only for drinks

We went here last Friday 25th just by chance and are very glad we did, we were just looking for a quick meal before travelling home. The menu is very varied and are good prices, but then they have a choice of half a dozen or so offers of 2 for £6.98 which just did us. the hub had a 7 oz gammon and I had the fish and chips, the size of the fish was quite large and thick for the price and gorgeous.

The meal was the hottest I have ever had when eating out. From ordering to table was very quick as well. Also I have to mention the bar staff who are very friendly, and the best staff that we have that we have come across, so Black Bull well done for employing such lovely people.

If we are in York again, I would make sure I took another visit.

We visited the Black Bull on a Saturday lunch time. The pub/restaurant was very quiet and we had no trouble finding a seat.

It's been a while since we were last here and we were pleasantly surprised.

The staff were pleasant and friendly and we really enjoyed the food that we had.

Would definately return.
