This small pub (go early if you want a seat) is the heart of the community. Staff and customers were jolly and interacted with visitors. The pub provides a large selection of real ales together with home style meals of generous proportions and absolutely delicious.

We went to the Black Bull early for dinner. We had to wait about an hour for the food to be cooked, but we were told that ahead of time. I had fish bites, and my spouse had tomato/basil soup (very tomatoey) and the sausage...More

Get there early to avoid disappointment as they are popular - and quite rightly so! Hearty food - it took me about 15 mins to decide what to have as it all looked so yummy and I am a vegetarian so this is not usual...More

Really good value food and just a walk from our B&B. If you are staying in the town then look at the menu. I am a committed vegetarian and I found enough options to meet my requirements.

Special place to eat. Small, cozy, great food!! Walk here from Ashcroft House. Had their baked Brie twice, but main courses wonderful as well. Bartender was friendly and tons of choices of beer.

Lovely little local pub. Good selection of ales and beers. Made to feel welcome. Very cosy bar. Down a cobbled street added to the old feel.

Dropped in with the wife on Monday 19th June for a swift ale. Great selection. Service was friendly, sun was out so sat in the beer garden, but inside is lovely. Will definitely go back when in Haltwhistle

Hi. Yes, but there are two rules. On a short lead at ALL times & they are not allowed on the seating. The pub is tiny & we do food, so we can't have dogs running about. We have asked people to leave who didn't respect the... More
