The Black Bull country pub and restaurant is well located on the Malton Road close to the delightful market town of Pickering in Ryedale, North Yorkshire. Originally a 17th-century coaching Inn, the Black Bull of today is a contemporary venue offering excellent food and stylish accommodation while retaining its heritage in a black and white timbered exterior.
The spacious bar and eating areas are attractively designed creating a warm and homely feel including white painted beams, mellow wood furniture and a feature brick fireplace with real log fire for those colder days. Outside there is a good sized dog friendly beer garden in which to relax over a drink or meal.
The varied menu offers starters, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, main meals including all the classic pub favourites and much more, traditional puddings and a popular Sunday carvery. Vegetarian dishes are available and those wishing to eat gluten free are also catered for. There is a choice of Black Bull speciality mash or homemade chips to accompany all meals.
Gluten free options include Haddock and Chips; Gammon steak with free range egg & caramelised peach, chips, salad and peas; Pork Chops with apple sauce, salad, chips and peas; Curry of the Day with rice or chips, naan bread and mango chutney; Creamy Broccoli & Cheese Bake; Butternut, Goats Cheese & Beef Burger served with GF roll, salad, chips or jacket potato. Among the GF desserts to tempt you are delicious Treacle Sponge, Sticky Toffee Pudding and New York Cheesecake.
The GF options are clearly marked on the menu and the friendly and helpful staff are more than happy to advise you.
