Description: A traditional country pub set in the heart of Escrick and only a stone's throw away from historic York and McAurthur Glen designer outlet. Perfectly placed in the village of Escrick and away from busy roads.The Black Bull inn is the perfect retreat wether you are on business or pleasure. You will expect very good accomodation with superb home cooked food, which is sourced from our local suppliers.We serve a selection of fine wines and award-winning ales , so why not join us here at the Black Bull Inn and we promise to make your stay a "home from home".The friendly atmosphere of this family run business is proving popular with both commercial and leisure customer's. Our 'Hands on' approach, with everyone working as part of the team, encourages our staff to relax and converse in an efficient, polite manner, whilst retaining a friendly, but professional service. We are immensely proud of our staff. It is this Ethos that we believe, encourages our guests to return time after time.please also see the BLACK BULL INN, ESCRICK trip advisor page

Stayed at this hotel and ate food on the Saturday evening and breakfast on the Sunday morning.
Evening meal was lovely, service was good and staff really friendly.
Was recommended to book a table when we arrived as weekends can get busy!!
We had breakfast the following morning which was included with our room.
There was a large selection of cereals, fruits, yogurts and homemade muesli. You also had an option to have a cooked breakfast too. Again the staff where lovely and friendly.
Couldn’t fault the food it was lovely!!
Would most defiantly return again.

We were warned that there would be a slight delay (about 40 minutes) after ordering. No problem. Our table was pointed out to us (we were not shown to it) but 20 minutes after we had sat down, having tried several times to attract the attention of a member of waiting staff to order our meals, we still hadn't ordered and were being totally ignored. We walked out in disgust.

Visited at lunchtime. Warmly greeted by bar staff and two lovely open fires created a cosy atmosphere on a cold day. Chose the seafood pancake and pork loin with black pudding. Both were delicious and portions were good. Apple and blackberry pie was home made, served with generous jug of custard - delicious! Restaurant quality, we will be back!

Sunday lunch with two friends who had eaten here on previous occasions. Service was friendly and efficient. The Black Sheep bitter was spot on. We all had three courses and every dish was beautifully cooked and presented. Helpings were generous, especially the accompanying veg dishes. We had Yorkshire puddings, devilled whitebait, and prawn cocktail for starters. Seared salmon, chicken with feta and spinach filling and pork steak with black pudding for mains. Treacle sponge, ginger sponge and bread and butter pudding to finish a superb meal. £66 for the three of us. No wonder the place was full.
