Lisa, and simon are amazing people, made us feel comfortable and welcome, and Redman's sausuage is well worth ordering ;-)The food is amazing and the rooms are lovely, I had an amazing fillet steak with mash pots, you need to get some sambucca because after an afternoon of olives and red wine we needed something sweet, but have no complaints.

Fantastic weekend break at the Black Horse Inn. Spacious self contained b&b units with dog towels! Lovely food and staff in pub. Great location for exploring the Downs, or Canterbury and Whistable. Easy access from M20

We were given our keys at the bar (around... More

Our overnight stay started with a wonderful lunch - good choices for all tastes. Accommodation was simple but stylish with good attention to detail. I would recommend this as a hotel or simply for a drink or a meal.

Really pleasant experience, the room was quaint and cosy. We arrived a bit late for breakfast but were given the same amazing service as... More
