50% off at Black Bull Inn

Found on Market Street in the idyllic Livingston town of Mid Calder, a mere stone’s throw away from the banks of the River Almond, the Black Bull Inn is an award-winning bar and restaurant that offers a warm welcome to all that walk through the door.

The dog-friendly venue has been around in some form or other since the mid-1700’s and now invites tastecard members in to enjoy all of their exquisite fare, providing they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival.

There are a host of scrumptious sandwiches of various fillings, delectable bar bites and heart-warming soups available at the eatery that are ideal for the diner on the go looking for a spot of respite amidst a day of exploration. Alongside such, there are a number of heartier main meals, such as the quintessentially British fish and chips number, that make for fantastic choices for the diner on the go – serving to satisfy any appetite.

Be it for a quick catch up with a close friend, a casual evening out with the significant other, or a celebratory treat for a loved one, all are catered for at the Black Bull Inn.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Bank Holidays including Scottish Bank Holidays. Members must call in advance and state their tastecard or the discount will not be valid. Please be aware 1 tastecard is used per booking with no exceptions.

    1. Food took ages to arrive - bruschetta was really oily and cheese wasn't melted

    2. Sirloin steaks took ages to come and it wasn't busy, a couple of other tables getting food. When the steak arrived it was really thick , tough , hard to cut , was chargrilled and burnt , we left half of it .

    3. Asked a barman for another drink - he never brought it , had to ask somebody else.

    4. Asked a girl for the bill , it never came ended up going up to the bar to pay.

    Won't be going back , poor service , sub standard food "

    First time in a lovely establishment! Phoned up and spoke to a lovely guy who took all our requirements with grace. (I have issues with hearing, so I need to sit out the way of people so I can hear my fiance talk.) And they did put us in a little corner and out the way, it was perfect. Our server Storm, was charming and really sweet, and very attentive! The food was really delicious and perfect portions, excellent value. At the end of the meal we were all chatting and we mentioned we'd just gotten engaged. They kindly showed us the function hall. I'm in love! We'll be going back for lunch and to discuss packages for weddings! Go to The Black Bull!!!! "

    Service a little slow but I think that was down to a member of staff not turning up and therefore short staffed. The waitress we had was very nice and friendly. Food was delicious. I'd go back in a second. "

    Next time during the hours that are more quiet. "
