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. Cooked to perfection. Ordered pepper sauce but it was not required. Order the sirloin. You won’t be disappointed. No pressure CHEF

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

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.
