Old Boots left this review about Black Bull

A traditional two bar layout with a more basic public bar on the right and a lounge to the left. The bench seating in the lounge is fully upholstered whereas in the public it's just the seat that's upholstered, there's also a dart board in the public along with a collection of trophies and a more limited choice of beer, two handpumps with Bass and John Smith's Cask. The carpeted lounge has four pumps and serves Pedigree as well as Bass and JS Cask, the fourth pump had a reversed clip but it might be Old Rosie as this is advertized on a couple blackboards in the lounge. The juke box and big screen are also in the lounge and there's more in the way of decoration in the form of various pictures and photos. The beer was extremely cold but otherwise inoffensive. Older punters mainly eating but there were some old boys in the public bar enjoying a beer.
