Welcome to the Black Bull

Nestled in the village of Kirkby Stephen, the Black Bull is a traditional family friendly inn at the heart of the local community. We welcome locals and fleeting visitors alike who all take advantage of having both the Lake District and North Pennines right on our doorstep.

Providing a great range of drinks to inspire the taste buds and excellent pubs classics to indulge any craving. As well as 9 comfortable rooms for a place to rest your head, we are the perfect respite no matter if it’s a few days, or just a few hours, the Black Bull is the place to be.

Bring the whole family, including the four-legged ones, to enjoy our large alfresco garden or with our street side seating you’ll be able to bask in the Cumbrian sun and watch the hustle and bustle of village high street pass by in any season.

From everyone here at The Black Bull, we look forward to welcoming you.

From grain to the glass.. quality never goes out of fashion. We all love to try something different but sometimes the original is still the best. Try the original cask beer this #caskaleweek  🍻
