Sister Pub: The Red Lion Hinxton
As with its sister pub, the multi award-winning Red Lion Inn at Hinxton, food at the Black Bull is all about making the most of the great choice of local suppliers and reflecting the changing seasons. The result is rustic gastropub dining at its very best.
The Black Bull achieved AA rosette status for its food last year, to match The Red Lion, where we have been awarded an AA rosette for a number of years now.
We have a Classic Pub and lunchtime sandwich menu for regular favourites, as well as frequently changing A La Carte menu. We also have an award-winning Pie Board – see below. All menus are available throughout the pub and we encourage guests to eat or drink where they feel most comfortable – bar, restaurant or outside patio/lawn areas.
Please find current menus below. If you’d like to be kept abreast of new menus or special events, please sign up here. We do not have a specific children’s menu, however, we can offer most of our dishes in any size or adaptation requested. It is a diverse menu that satisfies most tastes. We also have a significant number of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes.
Please call, email or complete our form for reservation enquiries.
We have regular Special Events, such as Chef Taster Menus, Wine Dinners and Pudding Club nights – see News/What’s On page for up coming dates.
The Black Bull won a national award in 2013 for its incredible Pie Board. The best of these have been kept on the current menus: The Black Bull Pie and a rotating “Guest Pie” with a choice of potato accompaniments and gravies.
Alongside our own Red & Black Ale we have a great selection of craft beer. Most frequent favourites are Woodforde’s Wherry and Adnams Bitter. Other regulars include beers from such local breweries as Crafty Beers, Brandon Brewery and Nethergate.
The Black Bull is now available for weddings and party hire.
