"We stayed for three nights as part of a family holiday and received a lovely, warm welcome from Kathryn and the team.

They were great with our two children throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble. We had a well presented, spotless family room with bunk beds - that the kids loved!

The pub is lively with a comfy conservatory and huge beer garden and evening meal was very tasty. Excellent full English breakfast cooked to order with delicious fresh pastries every morning.

Can't recommend this place enough - this is service at its best!"


"We arrived to a very friendly, warm welcome and were shown to our room, which was spacious with a lovely bathroom.

We went down for a drink at the bar and had the choice to sit in the bar, a lovely conservatory, the spacious back garden or even on a bench at the front of the hotel. The bar prices were normal pub prices.

The hotel is in the middle of a small village with lovely countryside and other villages surrounding it.

The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful for the duration of our stay and the breakfast was first class! We will definitely be visiting The Black Bull again."


"Really warm welcome and excellent friendly service throughout our stay.

The room was very comfortable with a very good bed and bathroom. Everything was spotless!

Although the restaurant was closed, due to Covid, we were able to eat a very good takeaway from the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent.

Altogether, outstanding place, run by friendly people who understand hospitality."


"Lovely hotel and staff. Although the hotels restaurant was operating a takeaway menu, due to Covid, they went out of their way to seek a reservation in a local restaurant, without even being asked.

Breakfast was very very good and even were able to accommodate one of our party who's diet is plant based.

Excellent hotel!"
