Aqualung . left this review about The Black Bull

This pub has quite a nice old exterior but inside it's been knocked into a single room and rather over modernised. The room is rectangular with a central bar at the rear. It's mostly wooden floored but there are two carpeted alcoves. There's a prominent pool table over to the left and TVs everywhere.
The bar has three hand pumps which had a poor choice even by Marston standards with one unused, Hobgoblin and "Young's" London Gold. I went for the London Gold (£2.70) which was warm but in decent nick apart from that.
The TVs and poor beer choice would rule out a return visit. According to what Pub you can ask behind the bar for the TV remote control. BBC Parliament or ITV Be anyone?

A pretty decent pub that does like to show off its sporting silverware. A large child friendly beer garden can however mean a bunch of shouty, whiny kids.
