The Black Bull is a well-loved haunt with a pretty garden that encompasses an outside bar and an area for games of Aunt Sally. An excellent range of traditional homemade food is on offer here too, but, as the chef is Italian, hints of his heritage shine through in both the food and the decor. Everything is freshly cooked and sourced locally, and those with food allergies are well catered for. Starters include black pudding with bacon, onion and a poached egg, and duck Carpaccio with pomegranate balsamic reduction. My main of homemade osso buco ravioli in rich red wine sauce was divine, and my partner loved the red mullet fillets atop flavoursome paella. Italian influences are also evident on the dessert menu, and we happily tucked into homemade tiramisu and a marmalade and Grandmarnier brioche bread and butter pudding, both of which satisfied our sweet cravings.
