Review on Black Bull Inn
Situated just a mile from Scotch Corner and the A1, the Black Bull Inn is a fixture of the Yorkshire dining scene and still has enormous pulling power. It made its name under the caring stewardship of the Pagendam family, who bought the inn during the early '60s and elevated it to international status. After a period of closure it is now part of the award winning Provenance Inns owned by Chris Blundell and Michael Ibbotson. Having been left in a state of dereliction during its period of closure, it has been extensively refurbished and once again it continues to capture people's imaginations.
The kitchen makes the most of the local larder with starters in the shape of pan fried wood pigeon, wild mushrooms and baby spinach, artichoke, velouté and white truffle oil dressing or maybe choose the baked Queen scallops, garlic and parsley butter, gruyère and mature cheddar crust. Main courses take in East Coast lobster, baked thermidor or garlic and chilli butter or from the land there's choice cuts of steak cooked in their Bertha oven, served with skinny or chunky chips, onion rings, rocket and tomato salad and either Béarnaise or peppercorn sauce. Finish with desserts such as caramelised rhubarb tatin, mini rhubarb and vanilla cheesecake, rhubarb and ginger shot or a sticky toffee and date pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream.
