I left Horwich as a 5 yr old in 1964. At some time before that my mum pulled beers at the Black Bull Pub. Just looked it up and was stoked to find out it's still there albeit as an Italian restaraunt called I'l Torro (still the bull). I'll have to come 'home one day to dine there even tho the reviews are'nt great! :)

Just a quick update... this pub has closed down and become a posh Italian restaurant called Il Toro (The Bull).

Pretentions above its station. Prices boarder on ass rape and everything arrives at the table in microwaved speed, at least you barely get time to look around at the damp patches on the ceiling and emulsioned over wall paper from the days when it was the Bull.......
My sauce tasted like it had come out of a packet and the staff have been spotted at the cash and carry buying in their "home made" desserts.
Still, a good place to show off your Range Rover and Rolex but your really just letting people know that money doesn't buy good taste.

Dined 3 times now and it's superb. You'll have to book well in advance for a weekend table for two.

I dont think the former post is justified having only visited once? I've been several times to this new restaurant and service and food the best out of Manchetser - give them another chance all restaurants have teething troubles!!
I'll be going back again and again!
