Welcome to the Black Bull.
Tucked away in rural Lancashire, between cloud topped hills, green fields, rolling pastures, and lots of cows... sits The Black Bull Inn.
Nestled in the picturesque village of Old Langho, our stone building has been here since the 1500s. Steeped in history it has it's own warm welcome to travellers from far and wide.
Our menu is fresh, local and has a nice balance of those "pub classics" but brought up to date in modern and inventive ways.
Dog friendly in the bar area or garden, and plenty of cosy seating available in front of our roaring fires, in The Library, or in our gorgeous, beamed, renovated Fire Barn.

    This is a charming local pub, with good quality food and friendly service, but I felt the food didn't justify the prices charged. £34 for a two course sunday meal puts the mains (we had cheeseburgers and chips and fish and chips) around £26. I believe this is about £10 over what should bave been charged. A real pity, as the ambiance and feel of the pub is welcoming and friendly.

    The food was lovely, could do with a few more carrots and less red cabbage, on the Sunday lunch sharing platter. However the meat was lovely, and there was plenty for the money.

    Not a fan of the set 2 or 3 course meal menu with no other options especially when eating with young adults that don’t want two courses and told we can have a dessert to take home as that’s only option available. We have previously had the cheese and onion pie which was £18 (which I feel is overpriced) but then forced to buy another course which would make the starter or dessert another £16 it’s very expensive for local pub at the end of the day! Feels like they’ve got greedy and if they sustain that price point and not want regular business, good luck to them.
