A warm, welcoming & friendly Lakeland pub

The Black Bull Inn and Hotel was built around 400 years ago as a coaching inn providing accommodation for travellers, coachmen and horses. The Inn is situated in the picturesque village of Coniston, beside the beck and in the shadow of the ‘Old Man’ mountain.

We have 11 comfortable bedrooms each with bath or shower en-suite, colour television, tea/coffee making facilities, hair-dryer, full central heating and double glazing. The character of the rooms and inn has however still been retained.

We serve a range of light snacks and hearty dishes to accompany our vast range of on-site brewed ales​

The most recent addition to our hostelry was a microbrewery, Coniston Brewery, in 1995 in which we brew our own beer, Bluebird Bitter and Old Man Ale. These are made using only the finest natural ingredients available and our local mountain water. The beer is cask conditioned before being sold to our discerning customers in the bar.
