Black Bull

Great Smeaton, Northallerton, DL6 2EH

Popular 17th-century coaching inn situated at the end of a row of roadside cottages on the Darlington to Northallerton road, with a linked bar, lounge and games room, with low-beamed ceilings. Underneath the games room were once cells that detained the legendary highwayman Dick Turpin on the way to his execution in York. The guest beer is from a local micro. The pub is handy for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales, with the Croft Circuit nearby. Dogs are welcome and accommodation is available in four rooms.
