LET’S GO AL FRESCO!
With its magnificent outdoor stretch tent, twinkling lights and a new pizza oven, the Black Bull is the perfect place to enjoy great food in beautiful surroundings
As we move slowly towards balmy, long summer evenings, lighter nights and late sunshine I can only suggest that the Black Bull at Old Langho is going to be the place to be. The investment made in the pub has resulted in the most amazing outdoor space and yes, you’ve guessed it – Becky and Jamie Govier continue to innovate and improve the facilities even further.
The latest addition is a fantastic pizza oven resulting in a more casual offering of great pizza, served quickly but with no compromise. Can you imagine a cold beer or a glass of rosé with a slice of wood-fired pizza? A great way to wind down any evening after work or perhaps a lazy weekend afternoon with family and friends. They’ve also recently trialled a burger van – as you can imagine it was a huge hit and I’m told a selection of ‘dirty burgers’ will soon be on the main menu and available both outside and in.
The vibe at the Black Bull is second to none and we know this isn’t a fluke or left to chance. Becky and her super team are there to enhance the experience – enthusiastic, passionate and attentive and with over 100 covers outside, it’s quite an atmosphere and welcoming to all.
Just to be clear it’s not just pizza and burgers outside – good as they are, the full a la carte menu is also available for those who love the al fresco way of life. Let’s also not forget the signature Sunday lunch, which is superb and incredibly popular.
As the evening descends and dappled light follows, the garden comes into its own. By day the views across the Ribble Valley are magnificent and as dusk falls, twinkling lights, live music and a selection of hand-crafted cocktails make the outside space come alive with a laid-back atmosphere. It’s hard to imagine anywhere nicer to relax, kick back and enjoy great food and a tipple of your choice.
The Black Bull remains open seven days a week, testimony to the fact that Becky wants to offer a full menu to a host of different clientele. If you want a quieter time to visit, then early week lunchtime is the time to go – both outside and inside offer the full menu meaning something for everyone.
Look out on social media for all the latest additions and events – please support Becky and Jamie as they continue to deliver a quite remarkable level of food and service in such wonderful surroundings.
