Went past recently and it's become another curry house.

CLOSED ,and given the way the area is changing I would be very surprised if this place reopens as a pub.RIP.

A visit recently found the Bar Nakoda aka Black Bull closed and the interior being ripped out. Nothing visible as to what was happening (refurb/change of use, etc).

Now called Nakoda, which meant 5 minutes asking a number of passers-by who I suspect don't drink alcohol for religious reasons where the Black Bull was!

The inside certainly isn't the best - spartan, shabby and lacking any real charm. I was also subjected to the pointlessly loud TV - the volume level being even more pointless as I was one of only 4 other customers on a Saturday afternoon.

The beers (all from Nethergate) were well kept and well served. Had a bit of a chat with the barman and one of the regulars, so a mark for that.

It isn't a pub worth going out of the way for unless:
a) You're well-up for a Nethergate beer
b) You happen to find yourself in the area

In which case I'd recommend it.

Popped in lunchtime - 3 Nethergate beers on all in good nick, also ale happy hour(s) 2-7pm �2.30 per pint. Pub very quiet but I wish them well.
