user reviews of the Black Bull, Blaydon

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

After the Sun Inn at Swalwell (not listed on here), I sampled the Black Bull at Blaydon. It's a 2 room pub. But only 1 room was in use on my visit. The other is possibly used for dining. Three fairly run of the mill ales were being served - Landlord, Black Sheep & Deuchars. But this is a friendly little pub and located not too far from the Blaydon bus interchange, where you can catch quick bus services into Newcastle.

Excellent pub, well kept ale, went here with my father in law last week, it is his local. Very friendly proprietors and regulars, even when they have a Londoner in their midst.

had never been in the pub before, but heard it was a Cask mark pub as well as in the 2010 CAMRA guide, so thought i would give it a go as i was only over the road.

at first it seemed a bit 'local' as there was only really one large group there , but had a look at the ales on the corner, Broadside and Black Sheep were the two i remembered. Decided to give the Black Sheep a go as its a fairly decent ale you see plenty of places.

The pint was well kept, not a bad price, and i enjoyed it, would have been nice if the fire was going,
Will try it one night when they have the quiz or suchlike, and its a little more lively.

all in all a nice little pub, if not a little out the way from the usual pubs in the area.
Inside it was very old, but again, that's not a bad thing, it was like what a pub would have been like and should be like. not an amusement arcade ,and not a disco, it's a pub with lots of local history, and decorated walls of the area "back in the day"

A proper old fashioned bar that is welcoming and friendly with three well kept real ales. Usualy Black Sheep and Wylam Gold with an alternating Adnams Broadside and Directors Choice. No juke box TV or fruit machine. There are some fine photos of old Blaydon before it had its heart ripped out and a real fire in the colder months as well as a large patio for warmer times. Well worth a trip out from Newcastle and easily acessable by public transport. The new managers have only been there just over a year but they have made a great effort and it shows. If you want a pub were the quality of the beer and good conversation are high on the list then this is it.
