Black Bull, Ferryhill - closed?
« on: Aug 01, 2012, 15:11 »
Just spotted on my way to work this morning that the Black Bull was all boarded up.

Anyone know what is happening with it?

According to their Facebook page, they are waiting for new owners to buy it.  Shame  :(

The pub is now showing up as 'Under Offer', i believe for less than £100k. It needs tidying up a lot, but it shouldn't take too long. It'll be interesting to see what format it will be.

The Black Bull has been bought my Amber Taverns (www.ambertaverns.co.uk) and is going to be a Sports Bar. They currently run about a dozen pubs in the North East, but most of their premises are in The North West, with none south of Birmingham.

There is going to be some major works to it from the Planning Application.

One of their current pubs is what used to be the Red Lion in Chester le Street (opposite the market place)

I have been told that Wetherspoons are buying the piv in Ferryhill, which sounds plausible

I heard the same rumour about The Bull. I understand the Pavilion needs extensive repairs to it's roof.

Not sure we need another pub in Ferryhill when we can't fill the ones we've already got (even though it's a resurrection, not a new pub).

According to a post on the Ferryhill Chapter website, they were hoping to have things running by April
New plans for The Black Bull in Ferryhill submitted | Ferryhill and Chilton

They'll have to go some to stick to that schedule. I walked past a couple of nights ago and nothing had changed at all.  :wink:

Apparently they're waiting for approval for their proposed internal alterations from the council. I think it's scheduled for 24th April.

There's a note stuck to the grill on the window with the Application for Internal Alterations. The 24th April date is from there.

Had a read of the notice, it has nothing to do with planning consent.
It is the notice of application of a drinks license and says the consideration of this drinks license will take place on 24th April.

Ah, right. I stand corrected.

Well I hope the workforce doing the alterations do a better job than they do driving ....... just watched one of their white van drivers take his exhaust off when entering the car park this morning.

He tried to drive over a heap of grass/soil/rubble just past the back door of the Bull and it was too high for the van, then he tried to reverse and ripped part of his exhaust off then tried to drive forward again with the exhaust trailling underneath him.

When he got out you could hear him saying "What was that?" ....... well if he looked underneath his van he would have seen the exhaust hanging down  ......... he must have thought his transit had the same ground clearence as a 4X4.  :roll:

Heard a rumour that it might not be called The Black Bull when it re-opens. The name mentioned was "The Dean and Chapter"

Called in on the way home tonight. Tons of tellys, plenty of people in and a good feeling. Seems like they've done a good job.  8)

They've just announced that in association with the Ferryhill Bakery, they're going to start doing Sunday Roasts.
