The food here is terrible. I got chicken Fajitas and they were completely black. The chicken wings are drowning in sauce that's not even that nice. The 'spicy' wedges had NO flavor on them and the portion (for €3.50) was TINY. The service is equally terrible, they are understaffed and the staff they do have are rude. I would go... More

Never been here here for lunch, was very disappointed. Dinner has always been very good but today I had lunch with my dad and we were both disappointed. ''Cajun'' wrap was tasteless, lettuce juice was the only thing I could taste. I could genuinely barely eat it. My dad got a sausage and mash dish and he said the onion... More

Had a decent and inexpensive meal at the Black Bull. The staff were very friendly and the place ia really nicely done up. The timing of bringing the food out for the kids was way off ( served after our starters but before our mains) and the drinks refills we ordered twice for the kids never materialised so I would...

Visited the black Bull twice during November because I had reason to go to droheda. Have to say that the food is very good, and the staff are friendly. However having to wait 40 minutes for a starter and then over 30 for a main course is just too much. Both times the staff apologised and said it wasn't normal.... More

Visited the Bull on Saturday to watch the Ireland match. Really great atmosphere and they were running an offer which meant we each got a free pint of Guinness. Get there early if you want a good seat for the match. We got dinner later in the evening. They had a nice reasonably priced menu with plenty of variety for... More

This place is on my top list for food and drinks. Very nice place with excellent, friendly and professional staff. Must try. Ask the staff about the bull - it's a lot of history of his colours.
