7 first look pictures of historic Leeds pub The Black Bull after Horsforth Brewery takeover

A Leeds brewery has transformed a popular pub in Horsforth.

Horsforth Brewery announced on its social media channels last week that it had purchased The Black Bull with the team behind The Tavern.

The Black Bull, located on Town Street, is one of Horsforth’s most-loved pubs. And Mark Costello, owner of Horsforth Brewery, told the Yorkshire Evening Post the pub’s legacy is what made it an attractive opportunity for the independent business to grow, which first began as a part-time project in 2017.

Under the direction of Horsforth Brewery, The Black Bull is now a “sport-led pub” called The Bull. Mark said customers can also expect a pool table, its quality craft beer as well as great service.

The launch of The Bull took place on Friday, November 24.
