Our Tale To Tell

Over the hills where the cattle play,
Holds a village of Wooler where they welcome your stay.

A tiny town unlike others you've seen,
Holds pensioners, adults and kids up to teens.

Weetwood, Ryecroft and Padgepool place,
Round every corner there's a friendly face.

Wooler high street with shops unique,
Florin, Gear for Girls and other boutiques.

The Black Bull archway holds secrets untold,
A tiny restaurant where treasures unfold.

A family business, run by four,
Will welcome you through the Milan front door.

Where once lay a stable full of hay,
Now transformed provides a great end to yor day.

Going out to wine and dine,
Don't be disappointed so book in time.

Homemade food to suit your taste,
Our Chefs recommendations never go to waste.

Trip advisor, AA Gill,
The Milan reviews are read with thrill.

And now our tale is nearly done,
We hope you have enjoyed our fun.

Its time to go but before we fly,
There's just one last line to say, Goodbye.

About Milan


The Milan Restaurant is located in the heart of wooler. Hidden away in the old stables of the Black Bull Hotel. The building was refurbished about 10 years ago, following its time as the local disco, to make way for the restaurant. Since then it has gained a great reputation locally and much further afield, for serving fresh, innovative Italian food.

The Milan is a 90 seater restaurant that caters for families, groups of friends or a romantic night out. Birthdays and any others celebration are made extra special by the friendly staff. Children are made to feel welcome with balloons and meals just for them.
