James Ratcliffe and Nina Matsunaga have taken a 17th century coaching inn on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales in Sedbergh and transformed it into a unique destination venue in which to to relax and unwind. They are both veterans of Manchester’s street food scene with Nina German-born to Japanese parents and this all translates into a passion for locally sourced produce but drawn on an international canvas. Using a carefully cultivated network of local suppliers, the kitchen produces a range of dishes with British, European and Asian influences. So a typical evening meal at The Black Bull might start with Skate, Miso, Seaweed and Spring Onion followed by Venison Loin, Quince, Root Vegetables and Treacle with Baked Custard, Pear, Apple, Sloe and Rosehip for dessert. The food is complemented by a well-chosen wine list and in addition to the main evening menu there’s a lunch menu, bar nibbles and children’s dishes. The Black Bull also has 18 bedrooms, luxuriously appointed but with clean and restrained Japanese lines and some with balcony views, roll-top baths, rain showers and even a Japanese tub in one room.
