Old Boots left this review about Black Bull Inn

Another Boroughbridge pub that hasn't changed much in the last ten years in spite of the sad death of its much respected landlord. No longer selling Taylors, John Smiths Cask and Black Sheep bitter are the regular beers. Beer quality isn't as tiptop as in the old days and the auto-vac has been removed.

A very pleasant stopping point in the attractive town of Boroughbridge. We didn't eat but the pub is clearly well set up to do so should you wish although this doesn't infringe at all on the drinking areas. John Smiths Cask and TT Best are the regular beers with one rotating guest, Cottage's Broadguage on our visit. The beer was in good condition, well poured and slipped down very easily.

Bucking Fastard left this review about Black Bull Inn

Neat and tidy Inn situated in the very attractive part of town close to a real butchers and other non chain shops.Low ceilings add to the atmosphere and the locals gather in the right hand lounge and get served from a hatch in the central corridor.The snug is cosy and has it's own bar with John Smith Cask and well kept Taylor Best as regulars together with one guest.We didnt eat but the seperate area behind the bar is set up for meals and there is a smart looking restaurant through some glass door at the rear of the building which appears to be used for evening dining.There is accomodation available.Good spot for a beer or two,there is no TV,musak,fruit machines or anything else to detract from the respectable interior.
