My partner and I recently booked to stay overnight for some hill training on our road bikes. This is a very picturesque area with the Black Horse perfectly placed to the North downs. Staying within the grounds of the Black Horse was so convenient as after our ride we only had to store our bikes and head into the bar... More

We stopped here on a sunny Bank Holiday Sunday. The place was packed and the food looked superb. Reasonably priced for local produce but 100% worth making a booking. We ate outside for which there is a 'Bread Menu' Sandwiches etc. We chose a club sandwich we both thoroughly enjoyed. Well worth a visit.

Stayed over Easter 2015 for 1 night , booked almost at the last minute. Chalet accommodation is well away from the main pub and was quiet when we stayed. Rooms were clean and pleasantly furnished. Access is down a typical narrow Kentish country lane and gives a pleasantly isolated feeling, though one is not far from Maidstone. I can see... More

We stayed at the Black Horse to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with two other couples, (4th time we have stayed here). The rooms are spotlessly clean, very comfortable and quiet being located separately to the Bar/Restaurant. The staff in the bar and restaurant are always very friendly and the food and service is very good. Breakfast is the usual... More

My second stay so it must be good, as some of my readers know I don't always wish to repeat an experience. A charming situation on Pilgrims Way, the main building beautifully rustic and warm! Excellent welcome, service and food. The rooms, newly built in traditional style, are perhaps 200 yards down hill into the grounds. Our arrival anticipated the... More

This is a great place to base yourself if you are in the area and in a different league to most chain hotels. Rooms are comfortable, very quiet and spotlessly clean. The Bar/Restaurant is warm and inviting and the food is lovely. Freshly cooked with generous portions and it looks as if they use quality, fresh and local ingredients. It... More

A really lovely place for good food with a warm and friendly environment. The only downside to this is it was a little out in the sticks and I thought I had taken a wrong turn! Definitely a place to go back to though!

Went with family for dads birthday. Lovely service, nothing was too much for them, the waitress was on her first night and her service was exceptional and nothing was too much plus as my mum and sister eat gluten free there was an expert on hand to recommend non gluten products. Food was beautiful, perfectly cooked and a joy to... More

Me and my partner stayed here for one night in January, it was a birthday present from a relative, with an evening meal and breakfast included. Upon arrival the receptionist was extremely friendly, polite and welcoming. Explained everything and where the room was. The room itself was delightful and heated already. It was so clean and spacious. The bed was... More
