We popped in during a blizzard, looking for dinner. I asked if the dog could come in too and that was welcomed. We were able to eat in the bar. Not too many choices on the menu but all looked fabulous. My husband has the sirloin steak which was beautifully cooked, with really tasty veg and hand cooked chips. I went for the homemade burger which was really good too. The homemade caramelised onions were amazing!! Great service too. Highly recommended.

While traveling through Scotland from Iowa, USA we stayed at the Black Bull Inn and ate dinner at the restaurant. It was excellent food with superb service. They made us feel at home.

Stayed here with my sister on 28 MARCH 2018. Have stayed in many 4 or 5 Star hotels all over the world, but never had such good hosts as Mandy & Allan. They are so welcoming, friendly and, put simply, very sincere people. Hotels have been refurbished to a very high standard - well done Mandy. The food is also excellent and superb value for money - well done Alan & Mandy. We will most definitely be back.

We enjoyed our dinner and esspecially liked the Hagis ball. I wasn't attracted to it in the beginning, but the taste and presentation was really good. The portions were well sized and there were vegetables served with every dish.

Now in my third year visiting here, I stayed just 2 days after Mandy and Allan landed here! Every year we have seen it get better and better, accommodation, food and drink is simply great. The value is unbeatable. A big warm welcome.
