The British country pub is widely seen as being something of a decline, with the smoking ban and supermarket lager blamed for superseding this age old institution. What a tin and a ten deck in your front room can never replace though, is the architecture and history of a proper pub, and when you visit The Black Bull Inn on Teigh Road in Market Overton, you’ll see why. They offer cask ales and superb British bar food in a thatched pub with a roaring fire, comfy sofas and as warm a welcome as you could wish for. Book a table now and make the most of a great British tradition.
There are plenty of reasons to set a course for your local, from a proper pint of an evening to a full evening meal, and if your local happens to be The Black Bull Inn in Market Overton, then you’re unusually blessed in the pub department. They’re a free house, and thus can offer a range of ales few others can match, as they complement them with a menu packed with British favourites made using only the best in local ingredients and sourced from the finest local providers. Let us talk you through the menu available at this Rutland village pub.
The beers are all sourced from the breweries that dot Rutland and the East Midlands, and the meat is too. When you visit The Black Bull Inn on Teigh Road in Market Overton, you can try their gammon and eggs – sourced from Red Hill Farm in Gainsborough – or their steaks, from Harkers Farm Shop in Clipston on the Wolds in Nottinghamshire. These are just a few of the British specialities on offer at The Black Bull Inn, and we haven’t the space to go into the full range: all we can say is that you should book yourself a table and head down to Teigh Road for yourself to make the most of the local delicacies available in Market Overton.
We had a wonderful Sunday lunch with melt in the mouth roast beef, done to perfection, with the most perfect roast potatoes. The puddings were delicious and even the home made bread was fabulous. The staff were so attentive and friendly. A great experience, we will definitely be back.
Great food I had the Lamb rump and my hubby had the steak Guinness and Roquefort pie. Really lovely flavours. Vegetables were crunchy so perhaps not to everyone's taste. Made very welcome and the waitress worked very hard. Good value. Would have liked a little background music as not many people in and a bit too quiet.
Great Service,very nicely cooked steaks and wonderfull rabbit also a very good dog choir. a nice cosy atmosphere.a few more dogs required would have made the evening even better.
