wonderful to have the restaurant back..... food was good but perhaps a bit over-decorated and there seemed to be a chilli flavour with everything! Frozen fruit kebabs a daft idea... like trying to eat ice cubes.., what's wrong with just fresh fruit kebabs?? The new decor is great.... although it might be a bit barn-like if there weren't many people... screens? trellis dividers?

Had an excellent visit to the Black Bull in Gartmore. The table was ready when we arrived, the staff were very welcoming and the food was excellent. It also was covid safe with appropriate distancing, signage and hygiene in place. We'll be going back soon .

I had my second meal from the new menu this week and it was delicious. It’s a really safe, socially distanced environment and I felt ok about being indoors. Service was great and the cheesecake was to die for. I had the chicken with haggis, it was delicious ....and my son said the mushroom starter was fabulous too. Great experience.

Vegetarian option uninspiring and limited choice. Mornay sauce whilst tasty looked overheated but fish portion generous. That said we did enjoy our visit as this was the first meal out since March. If returning, would like more vegetarian options please.

I was a little concerned by the lack of face masks and the enforcement of distancing. Otherwise it’s great to have it open and it looks great.
