Lovely pub, great service - but the food was really not impressive. £22 for a fish course which was fish fingers, a couple of new potato’s and a few frozen veg sprinkled on. I wish I’d ordered something else.

It’s rare on holiday to find a pub where everyone is so welcoming, locals and staff alike. The food was delicious, and our need for a gluten free meal was easily accommodated. I enjoyed the beer on tap. We wish we lived closer so we could be part of this amazing community venture but will definitely visit again.

The staff were all lovely - so friendly and welcoming. I brought my wee dog, so we were given a table in a side room. Husband would prefer the bar next time! Also I'm attempting to follow a vegan diet and managed to find some very tasty options on the menu. Extremely impressed and will definitely return when in the area.

We had a great dinner for 8 at the Black Bull in Gartmore. The inn was welcoming and the bar was lovely. The service in the restaurant was excellent - attentive and informative. Nice selection of beers. We had a variety of entrees, all were very tasty - Venison & Pork Burger (V&PB), Haddock cakes, Steak Pie, and Caesar Salad. Excellent overall experience and good value.

Midweek. Quiet but so peaceful. Lovely community village. Would definitely return. Had sirloin steak for dinner…..had to compliment the chef as it was the best steak we ever had.

Understandably very quiet on a Wednesday night so restaurant lacked a little in atmosphere but our waitress was very chatty and aimiable to make up for it, moved through to the packed bar (socially distanced) after our meal and had a lovely ending to our time in the black bull, we will defo be back for a second helping

Staying near Gartmore for a week and visited twice. Lovely food, plenty of Gluten free options and pleasant and helpful staff. The menu isn't large but the selection is really good and decent wineist too. Decor lovely... A wee gem. Highly recommend visiting.

A few things missing from advertised meal eg cheese board no apple or celery, choc tart could have done with wee bit more cream, risotto was slight under cooked, but was fixed with no fuss. Also add V to menu for veggie options. Will be back was enjoyable and liked the menu, just minor tweeks to make perfect, well done.

Lovely food, great service, restaurant was beautiful to sit in and live music was pitched well, nice to hear but not too loud and didn’t distract from the food or atmosphere. I think you could lose the plastic decorative ivy though!

Service was excellent. Starter of scallops & black pudding had slightly too much chilli. Main course of sea bass could have been hotter but the restaurant was full (which obviously was good to see!). Decor and ambiance were excellent.
