Although a limited menu at this time of year, the food was very good and the staff friendly and welcoming.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting The Black Bull in Etal, Northumberland, for lunch. It's a thatch-roofed property that looks every inch the archetypal British pub. It's cosy inside. It proved a good choice for a lunch of baked potato topped with coronation chicken.

Dream location. Idyllic, thatched, picture perfect public house. Clean and tidy. Friendly people working and friendly customers too. Didn't eat as it was a late visit and food service was over but met the guys who cook and they were personable and engaging. Beers well looked after. Cheviot brewery do some nice work on the cask front. Well worth making a detour for.

Really good food, steak and ale pie was spot on and fish and chips was good. Dog friendly in the function room. Need to fix there speaker in the function room cos it keeps going on and off which was really annoying. Toilets need some TLC as well as they were dirty and everything was broken. Nice pub overall.

Plenty of meat in my steak & ale pie! The dish was full of meat compared to other places. Lovely little place just off the main road to visit. Nice to have a Guinness out in the sun and see tourists visiting on their motorcycles. Pleasantly clean and varied seating areas indoors and out. We cycled from Kelso then waded over the ford to head back again to make a circular route. That ford may not be passable in wetter months! Would visit again thanks.
