The Black Bull, the only thatched pub in Northumberland, underwent a programme of major refurbishment over the winter/spring of 2017/18 and is now open and fully operational.
Whilst still retaining some original features the building has been transformed inside, with a bar area, a restaurant area, outside seating to the front and rear of the pub, and a beer garden. There's also a function room available to hire for private events.
The pub is now serving food Tuesday-Sunday inclusive, with lunchtime options available 12-4pm and the restaurant open 6-9pm. Booking is recommended. Although the kitchen is closed on Mondays the bar is open 11am-11pm.
