Reviewed 21 June 2013 via mobile

In Drogheda for a lunch meeting went to the black bull was very busy. That being said was seated quickly was served quickly had a lovely fresh salad that hit the spot and was out with a bit of time to spare at lunch. Big thumbs up

“Good food and nice interior.”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

A quality Pub / Restaurant with professional staff and good food.
Car park always seems at least half full as does the premises itself, it is very popular.
For families they cater very well too. I have never had a poor meal here and always leave satisfied.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

Just after leaving the black bull celebrating my wife's birthday and I have to say is was the worst service I have ever received,starting with drinks order 2 club orange and a small jug of cordial for our 2 year old daughter the server arrived with a normal glass for our daughter we asked for a jug and she stood looking at us,enter server number two sorted out the jug problem took our order soup bowel arrived for our daughter and our starters arrived which were delicious main courses arrived fish and chip and homemade burger cooked well done with colslaw and salad from
server number 3 fish and chip was beautiful but the well done burger was red in the middle both sides enter server number four stroke manager who tried to tell us that the red in the middle of the burger was spices ,I don't think so? Having eaten this kind of food before it is a sad excuse for an under cooked homemade burger,to round off my review thank you very much black bull for ruining my wife's birthday

“Do NOT order for collection”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

The restaurant is nice have been in a few times but when ordering for collection we've also been left waiting. Tonight was the 3rd and last time I'll do that. Was told 20 minutes, went up and then was left waiting there for a further 30 MINUTES!!! They do not care about their take home customers at all and I understand the people dining in are their priority but they should not offer a collection service if they can't handle it. I think it's horrendlous to treat customers like that. If they had of just said to me when I called 50 minutes that would of been fine. The girl was nice and said sorry that I should never of been told 20 minutes as they are busy but this was not the first time and the girl that answered the phone knew they were busy in fact she said "just give us 20 minutes because we are busy". I will never use their collection service again and will be reluctant to use the restaurant again

“Extremely Worthwhile Dining Experience”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend.Again, we took a 30 minute drive especially to eat here.I must say it was a very worthwhile trip.On entering we noticed how bright and spacious the restaurant was,with plenty of room to move between guests sitting at. tables.Waitresses took our order quickly and when the food arrived it was gorgeous.Hot plates and hot tasty food.2 of us had a 3 course meal for 45 euro.Lady at till could have been a bit more pleasant,otherwise a pleasant dining experience.
