Really good hearty northern food! I had the steak and ale pie, and my boyfriend had the burger. Both were tasty, massive portions! Would recommend for an evening meal for anyone staying up the road in the Avenue hotel.

Visited the Black Bull this week with friends for lunch. Had a lovely run out to it. Its in a lovely setting. The portions were large, the chips were lovely. Service was slow. But not bad value for money.

Just taking a detour on the way to Whalley when we came across this lovely little pub. Very friendly service and the home made pies were superb. Nothing was left on the plate ! I was sorry I couldn't manage to add the Apple Pie !
