“Good food and service”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

The black bull is a busy restaurant and bar on the old Dublin road Drogheda and is very popular with the locals. I have been to Drogheda a few times in the last few weeks and the black bull seems to be busy most days all day. The quality and selection of food is very good and suits all budgets from a good a la carte to early bird and board specials. Staff are fantastic and make a visit worth while. I think anyone who call's in wont be disappointed.

“A Yellow Bull?”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

On the left as you travel south from Historic Drogheda toward Dublin, this is a really good restaurant. My second time to call, this time we had booked a table for 20 for a celebration. Booked for 2.30, the table was ready at precisely this time. Great choices on the lunch menu for both starters and main course, with both traditional dishes and some innovative combinations. The group were unanimous in praising a lovely meal with attentive, friendly and helpful service. This is a very busy place and staff coped well. Great for groups as well as a good break stop for travellers up or down the East coast. Never discovered why the magnificent Bull statue on the roof is bright yellow. Perhaps to catch your attention?

“Great welcome, great service and excellent food”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

The place has a fantastic atmosphere the minute you walk in and that is endorsed further by the lovely and genuine welcome from all the staff. They don't just serve you, they engage you and make sure you are confortable. The price of drink is comparable locally. We booked a table in the restuarant and had a fantastic meal, which was one of those meals you talk about for a long while . Again the service was second to none. I have to say that he bill for the meal was most reasonable and this place is highly recommended. Make sure you book a table especially at he weekends.
