Varied menu and piping hot, home cooked food. Just what we needed at the end of a long day. Friendly service too.

Lovely, cosy dog friendly pub. Unfortunately they don't serve food anymore which is what we went in for but they serve a good pint. The lady behind the bar was lovely and the locals all friendly, we stayed for a couple of pints in front of the log fire.. very nice little pub.

We were disappointed in our visit to this pub it seems very run down and lacking in any character, there is a lovely log fire beyond that I can't think of anything positive to say, we didn't eat here and I wouldn't want to. It's in a prime spot and could be great with the right people running it and... More

We visited the pub after a wander up to the elephant trees. The pub itself is small but managed to accommodate our large group. The beer was good and staff seemed friendly. I can't comment about their food as we only dropped in for a quick drink. It an ideal stopping point after a day in the dales.

We popped in on the off chance and were pleasantly surprised. The food was great and on time. The land lady was lovely without being over pushy and the atmosphere was nice and chilled. Love it!

I like this pub. Visit Wolsingham every Bonfire Night and always make the Black Bull a must visit. Great country pub, open fires, good selection of ales and friendly owners. Went in for a quick pint and had 5!

Thank SalmonellaSam
