It's been some time since I have been to the Black Bull, in fact, many years. A friend and I decided to navigate away from the standard franchise restaurants and drop by the Black Bull. Stepping in the door however you are immediately upon the bar. Odd spot but that's their layout. so be it. We arrived early (11:45 on... More

We have enjoyed meals at the Black Bull on several occasions - especially their liver and bacon which is on special Tuesday nights! The All Blacks were playing on one Saturday night visit and the staff kindly found the game on one of the big screens for the avid All Black supporters in our party! A great neighbourhood English Pub!

Pubs that show English Premier league games on big screens are few and far between in the Hamilton area. So it came as a relief when we heard about the Black Bull. The pub is on the west side of Guelph Line just north of the QEW. There's no access from northbound lanes so if you come that way you'll... More

We all enjoy the dining experience at the Black Bull. Our tradition is to eat out every last Friday of the month. Everyone looks forward to the atmosphere, servers and the delicious food. Life is fun with friends and fantastic drinks thrown in for good measure! Cathy and Ken

Fantastic chicken wings. The Buffalo butter wings dusted are just as good as anything I've had in Buffalo. Deep fried pickles for the appetizer were great as well.

Was in the mood for prime rib and saw the reviews for the black bull and thought we would try it. I ordered my prime rib well done with mashed potatoes. When it was finally served (almost a hour later) my meat was raw.I sent it back and it was slightly re-cooked but not even close to we'll done. The... More

We were only in Burlington for the evening, but couldn't resist this place when we drove by by on our way to see autumn colors . So very glad we stopped in! He... More

The Bull is a wonderful place for casual dining. And the food has always been a 4+ in my experience. There's a salad they make, and if you ask for it with chicken, the chicken was cooked In-house with rosemary, and it's just stunning. Totally changes the flavour of the salad. I've been here with clients, wit family and alone.... More
