We celebrated our mums 70th at the blackbull in Nateby. We fought through the snow to get there last night and we had the best time. The room was decorated for Christmas. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was perfect. Our party...of 10 all enjoyed each meal thoroughly and commented on how nice it was given such an unassuming menu. We would like to also say a big thank you to the staff who provided my 2 yo with scrambled egg on toast which was not on the menu (but was the only thing she would eat) and looked as appetising as the mains we had! Also, thank you for helping g surprise our mum with her birthday cake, sorry the candles took you longer than expected to light and by the time you came out she was half way out the door as we hadn't realised she had sneakily already paid the bill herself and started out the door 🤣🙈More

Over many years we have driven passed but decided to stop for lunch and how glad we did! Lovely old inn, spotlessly clean and a warm welcome. Food was honest and really good with the added bonus of real chips - already booked to return.

Ate hear last night with my family. We all had roast dinners and quite simply, it was superb. The quality of the ingredients was first class and NOTHING has been anywhere near a microwave. Starters were also amazing and the seafood was exceptional. 10/10

A really nice laid back pub/restaurant. Fantastic food, friendly staff, didn’t have to wait long. 4/5 stars as they used frozen chips.

Went on Sunday and had the roast, fabulous value and amazing food. I was gutted I couldn’t eat it all because it was so good and didn’t want to waste it. Highly recommend and would definitely return.

Really enjoyed overnight stay, great room, good pub food and staff wonderful, couldn't do enough. Never like thought of sleepin a room people have had dogs but sometimes have to put up with that. Equally having them in restaurant and bar at night makes me...uncomfortable but that's life. Having them at breakfast table yapping away was too much. Pity, if you like dogs a great place.More

We booked this lovely pub for an evening meal when we were on holiday in Middleham Yorkshire. We needed a meeting place to catch up with our daughter who is currently living & working near Penrith. What a find 😁. Lovely friendly welcome cosy and...warm feeling, even our dog was welcome. We all had steak and it was cooked to perfection. Would definitely go out of my way to eat there again. 👍🍺🍹🚜🇬🇧More

We went to the Black bull last night and where very disappointed as the menu online is not the menu you get i was looking forward to the salmon and parsley mash no had to settle for the home made lasagna which was not nice...at all it was all soggy pasta and no mince so sad to say l had to leave it and only had the salad. My brother had the steak and his was disappointing to as it was very chewy and tough so we will not be back 😪More
