Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Black Bull

One of the historic pubs / hotels overlooking the village green, with the benches out front having fine views across Swaledale beyond. This one is part village local (with a pool table and dartboard in a back room) and part restaurant, with mostly traditional furniture and decor. A beer garden can also be found to the rear. With five of the six handpumps in use, we found Black Sheep, Wainwright, Landlord and couple from Theakston - Best and Old Peculier - plus a reversed Greene King IPA clip on the other pull.

Perfectly functional boozer - more of the locals one of the three in town.

Decent Black Sheep on.

Very good darts team - frequently scoring in triple figures!

A large, white building - or is it two buildings? Certainly the hotel's smart dining room appears to occupy a different one, and the public bar is a world of its own, and all the better for it. There's a stone flagged floor and an open fire. We liked the atmosphere in here, and the friendly barman was doing a good job. Like the Kings Arms, I would have said there were probably one or two beers too many on the bar, but either they keep it better here or we just got lucky, as the two we tried were in good condition. There were three Theakstons beers, Old Peculier, Lightfoot and Best, plus Black Sheep Bitter and Thwaites Wainwright. Of Reeth's three pubs, this would be my choice for a prolonged visit if the opportunity arose.
