Impromptu tea at the black bull. Really nice food. Bit pricey but service was very good :) Salmon nice, chicken curry nice. Good portions.

We booked for Mother's Day lunch and was made aware that a set menu was being served. We were not disappointed as there was plenty on the menu to choose from and the price was very reasonable. The starter, main & sweets were fantastic, the beef just melted in your mouth. All the food was hot and plenty. The waitresses... More

Starter was very moreish calamari, followed by smoked haddock mornay with perfectly cooked vegetables. Extremely drinkable merlot set up an enjoyable meal. Welcoming, friendly and helpful waitress and bartender ensuring that we shall be back. Good selection of fish dishes was certainly a plus for us. Sadly we were too full for dessert. Glad we decided to try this place... More

Love this place, husband decided to take us both out for a meal and this was my first choice, OMG, walked in to a little piece of heaven, fantastic character and beautiful coal fire burning, absolutely drawn in by the charismatic young man behind the Bar. Very professional and friendly staff, then came the food. Extensive menu lots of choice... More

Stunning, this food is simply amazing!!! The sea food is unbelievable, yes you might get fish and chips anywhere but you won't get it like this... to say this restaurant is in South Yorkshire in the middle of no where it is well worth travelling. The only fault I would have is I live to far away to go back... More

To be honest we have been going here for years and don't know we haven't reviewed it before. The pub is a couple of miles from Jn1 of the M180 along the A18 towards Crowle. It has sufficient parking and keeps a good pint. The pub lounge is cosy with a warm fire going during the winter months. On the... More

This place is great if you've been out in the freezing winter weather. You come in, order a drink, and sit round the fire before being taken to your table. Good, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I have stomach problems, and my mum can't eat wheat and dairy, but finding a choice, and being accomodated for, wasn't a problem. Choice of fresh... More

I visited the black bull with my family and it was amazing even though the food is a little on the expensive side I don't mind paying this if the food is good quality and well worth the money and it definitely was!!! The waitresses are always smiling and are really polite. I really recommend this pub to everyone who... More
