Further Information

From the a la carte menu you can expect a selection of robust dishes dominated by the classics of British cuisine and all made using fresh ingredients sourced locally wherever possible. That said, those venturing out into the countryside around York in need of a light meal before or after a ramble are recommended The Black Bull’s deli slates of meats, fish, cheeses, pickles and fresh-baked bread to share, or simple sandwiches served in your choice of crusty baguettes, white or wholemeal bloomer bread or gluten-free bread.

As for more lavish lunch and dinner options, The Black Bull pub in Escrick really pulls out all the stops. Starters like Doreen’s battered black pudding served with garden leaves, spiced apple and vanilla chutney is a sweet and earthy combination to start. Grilled sirloin, ribeye and rump steaks are all 28-day-aged Givendale beef are cooked over charcoal while the steak burger comes stacked with crispy bacon, applewood-smoked cheese and spicy salsa. Main courses range from a traditional steak pie to a luxurious fish and chips offering consisting of freshly beer-battered premium haddock with homemade chips and Yorkshire caviar, while vegetarians will be all over the brie and beetroot tart. Attracting York gourmets with a nose for traditional British food, The Black Bull pub deserves your reservation.

Great food, lovely staff and good atmosphere. Not a traditional pub type place. I more like a restaurant/bar. Will definitely recommend and visit again. Just to have one of those amazing desserts!

Found this little gem totally by accident whilst browsing for somewhere to eat whilst staying in Escrick. The ambience is fantastic. The staff so friendly it's unbelievable but it's totally true. Variety of the menu is very good as is the price. The portions are very generous and the food quality is also exceptional. Overall if I was staying close by again I would definitely eat here and I will definitely recommend that anyone needs to try the Bull

Food is always the top quality here. This is my favourite pub to eat in – staff are always so friendly and the food is delicious. Would highly recommend, my partner and I are a twenty minute drive from Escrick and we always try to visit at least once a month. Also know friends and family who cannot rate this place highly enough.

Superb food and excellent staff. The menu is good with a reasonable choice. All the courses were excellent and the whole experience a delight. 10/10 We eat out on a regular basis as part f our work and social life. This meal and experience rates very highly on our personal experience of similar eateries in the UK. Worth a visit.

we dined on a busy night and all the tables were in use. staff were very busy and this impacted slightly on wait times between courses. very good portion sizes hence good value rating. no issues regarding quality or taste. I had fish pie from the specials list which was quite creamy but the highlight was the quality of the accompanying vegetables. great parsnips! pleasant décor in the dining area.

Good hearty food, came out nice piping hot. The staff had a busy night in general but kept cool and remained attentive. I would have happily paid the same price for half the amount of food, portion size was fairly large. My only grumble is that my chips tasted a little fishy.

A comfortable and attractive pub with an appealing menu, friendly service and good value for money. A sign at the front door advertising for a full time chef was a little off putting - perhaps they should use social media instead for recruitment....
