We were staying locally and tried The Black Bill on the first night. It has clearly just been refurbished to a very high standard with lovely oak floors, colours in keeping with the age of the property and modern lighting. We had drinks in the bar (nice range of craft beers and gins) first. Food was excellent - we had...

Shouldn't really use such a corny title for the review but how else can you describe the BB? It's been a long time since we last went and, like other reviewers, the difference is stunning. So without going over the top on superlatives let's just say, the welcome, ambience, decor, food offer and impressive, attentive and knowledgeable staff, all made...

As locals we have visited the Black Bull at Lowick several times over th last 20 years. It closed three years ago looking very tired and in need of investment. I was told in early March 2017 by a work colleague that it had reopened and we really should call in. We did and what a difference! Ignore the photos...

This village inn which dates back to at least 1817, but is probably much older, has recently been sympathetically restored and refurbished to a very high standard by the new owners Karl and Emma. It is now open again after a lot of hard work to redesign and renew almost everything while keeping the historic building intact. Free house. Lovely...

We booked this accommodation a couple of days before arrival for the bargain price £55 for double room including breakfast. We arrived at about 8.30pm after a long journey and wondered if they were still serving meals. The staff were pleasant and welcoming and seemed very happy for us to order a meal even though they were about to finish....
