user reviews of Black Bull, Gateshead

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Full of underage girls made up to look like 5o year olds who ae trying to look as if they are 30. Dreadful place. Surprised the police haven't closed it down.

Black Bull in Wardley, Gateshead. My sister booked her engagement party at the black bull last weekend, all was well until we turned up about 6 hours before the party was to start and the place was a complete mess. Vomit in the toilet, old food on the floor and dirty furniture. We did not complain as we expected to do some cleaning with it being a free venue. My family spent 2 hours cleaning the place without any complaints until the landlord approached my 6 month pregnant sister and lost the plot. He swore and shouted at her saying he was insulted that we were cleaning and was very rude to my whole family. My sister was very frightened and upset and had to leave the premises. He then told all of his regular punters what was going on and stated that he wanted us to leave. The landlord tried to back track once he realised he was going to lose our custom and sent his barmaid to try and make us stay for the party, stating he would 'keep out the way' so we could have the party and that he was 'joking' about the previous argument. We as a family felt very unwelcome and upset about the whole experience and decided to leave and try to find a last minute venue. I wanted to warn people about booking this pub as a venue as the landlord is a very angry and hostile man, he bullied a 20 year old pregnant girl, expected us to have a party in a filthy room and also had old furniture blocking the fire escapes. Avoid this pub at all costs. Luckily we went to The Wessington in Donwell, Washington who pulled out all the stops and helped us have a fantastic party with no notice. Thank you so much to all the Wessington staff. Hope this review helps others. xx

Not a nice atmosphere at all. Takes ages to get served. The bar staff give priority to people they know and can have a natter with while others are waiting. The Indian restaurant upstairs is the only reason for visiting as it's good. Have been told to avoid the food downstairs, so can't comment on that.

Burnt and undercooked food on same meal! 1 out of 10 people present totally satisfied. Slow service; sauces came well after dishes & long gap between starter & main, despite there being only one couple there apart from us. Wide menu - possibly too wide - nothing outstanding. Under new management so may improve with time.
