Unplanned night out in the Black Bull, this well regarded family owned and run food emporium. Always a pleasent dining experience especially in good company. Worth a visit to sample the wide choice of european food, an array of drinks and excellent wine list.

The crispy such salad was delicious. Fish and Chips were very good, could have had a half dozen extra chips on the plate however. Decor and attention by staff are great. Would highly recommend.
