The results of a Christmas filming visit to one Rothesay pub - made in the middle of summer! - will be shown to TV viewers in Britain for the first time today (Tuesday).

The Bute-themed episode of ‘Luke Nguyen’s UK’ will be shown on the Good Food channel (Sky 133, Virgin Media 260) at 3pm, and again at 8pm.

Vietnamese Australian chef Nguyen visited the Black Bull last June during filming for a 30-minute episode based entirely on the island, with plenty of the Bull’s regulars donning Santa outfits and hats and colourful festive jumpers for the occasion, while manager Donna Taylor and her staff decorated the premises with holly wreaths, mistletoe, candles and a Christmas tree.
