Welcome to The Black Bull Inn

Puddings, Pies and Mash is what we offer at the Black Bull; in fact they are our passion– hearty food combined with quality service for the weary or not so weary traveler!

The secret of a great pudding or pie is quite simple, which is only using the finest quality ingredients either gently steamed in traditional suet pastry to ensure that the pudding is crisp, golden and savoury or oven baked to create a tasty pie with a tender flaky crust that literally melts in the mouth.

All our puddings and pies come with a jug of traditional gravy

To complement our tasty puddings and pies we also offer a mouth-watering range of different flavoured mash potatoes, guaranteed to tempt the most discerning of palates.

Drink...

A fine selection of cask and craft ales

At the Black Bull in Moffat we believe it is important to offer a comprehensive drinks range which fits with our overall philosophy that everything we offer must be natural and full of flavour.

Therefore you will find a range of cask ales or real ale, made with traditional ingredients of malted barley, hops, water and yeast . Our range includes a number of specials ales which we offer to complement the seasons and we are particularly proud in supporting a number of the small independent craft beer brewers.

Of course the Black Bull would not be the Black Bull if we didn’t kindle the Scottish spirit with a fine range of whiskies and other spirits along with all the mixers and soft drinks that you may require.

History in moffat

History of The Black Bull

The Black Bull in Moffat is reputed to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest hostelry in Scotland.

Built in 1568 it is certainly steeped in history.

At one time it was the headquarters of the Earl of Dundee and his company of Dragoons; nicknamed ‘Bloody Cleavers’ for their persecution of Scottish Presbyterians.

In more peaceful times it was a favourite watering hole for the bard Robert Burns who once engraved a pane of glass with some locally-inspired verses; the original pane now being in St Petersburg after it was presented to the future Tsar Nicholas I in 1817.

It is even rumoured that in the late 1820’s that the infamous murderer and grave robber William Hare may have stayed at the Black Bull during his escape to Ireland after turning King’s evidence against his partner in crime William Burke.
