Square Meal Review of The Black Bull Inn ?

This ancient, thatched local on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border is worth a visit for anyone who loves honest grub and a decent pie: their Black Bull special (locally sourced Aberdeen Angus steak in a thick, rich gravy) is a standout that has earned the place much of its foodie reputation in these parts. The kitchen also raises its game for some ambitious seafood specialities ranging from a lasagne of crab ‘salad’ dressed with truffle, beurre nantaise, tarragon and parsley oil to seared sea bass and scallops with steamed leeks, orange butter sauce and lemongrass foam. Locally brewed ales keep the drinkers happy, but the pub also has a commendable wine list. Friendly staff just about manage to cope with service to the scattered corners of the brightly modernised pub and its outdoor spaces. Related to The Red Lion Inn in nearby Hinxton.
