Really like it in here. Friendly staff, well kept beers and I like the beer garden when its only mild - probably the most protected one in the Triangle from the elements.

Love the table service and the tabs. A thoroughly good day or night time drinking place.




.... and the music seems that bit quieter.

Weird that we've only just had our first post on the Sheep!

I agree though - friendly staff, good food at a reasonable price and a nicely chilled atmosphere. A good alternative to the more traditional pubs.

Love the Sheep, but I wish it wasn't so smoky (sorry Andy ;) ). The beer garden is okay but very shady and a bit bare. They need to get some plants out there to liven it up.

Agree about the smokiness - its usually ok on a weekday til about 7 or so and then it slowly fills up.

I too love the BS but a better ventilation system is needed so that smokers and non-smokers can drink together in perfect harmony.

You're making me feel guilty as I'm one of the culprits. :ph34r:

However I'm normally only there during the day.

We stopped by on Saturday. Garden was lovely - but our choice of a burger was a mistake.

Whilst they might be homemade (which is good), sadly the meal was exceptionally greasy.

Me too - they are fab. Never had a bad lunch there. Hopefully just a one off Charlotte.

Its a bit too cubist for me, but the chips aren't , they're just marvellous.

Gave this place a try for the first time yesterday and was pleasantly surprised, being more of a fan of "old man's pubs", rather than the more trendy places. Food was fresh and reasonably priced, and having stayed most of the afternoon, we decided to give the jugs of cocktails in happy hour a go. I can recommend a jug of Jamaican Mule for the princely sum of £7.95 ...

I would recommend the calamari strips to anyone...big portion and very tasty (with some nice sweet chilli dip).

Even though I like a good pint...I must admit the cocktails are very good here, especially the Mojito. Highly recommended.

They also play some pretty decent music here (and not so loud you can't hear yourself think!)

Went to the Black Sheep for the first time in a while and on a quieter Sunday evening this time.

I still find it rather smoky, especially for having an otherwise good quality snack or meal, but I was very impressed by the friendly service and well poured Guinness. Safe to say we will be returning.

I popped in for Happy Hour on Thursday. I guess the happiness doesn't extend to Guinness or Pinot Grigio, as it cost about £7.50 for a pint and a large glass of wine. Should've read the T&C's before ordering and gone for a Manhattan instead.
Nice comfy seats, very smoky. Can't wait for next July. I expect the bars in the area are already getting quotes on patio heaters.
