Stayed for two nights end of Feb 15 The pub is beautiful inside large warming fire and the ceilings covered in hops. Our chalet was lovely and welcoming and we were relaxing in no time. The menu was excellent and varied for meals and you got a hearty breakfast to start the day off, the staff were chatty and friendly... More

We used to live in Kent and so now make the trip twice a year to meet with family and friends. One of the group had been to the Black Horse for functions in the past so we decided to book a Sunday lunch in their restaurant, and as they have rooms that are dog friendly it was an excellent... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights, just before Christmas. Menu in the restaurant was varied and interesting, the delivery from the kitchen matched the expectation. A great result at a busy time of the year, so pleasing to note that standards did not slip. The accommodation in blocks of lodges behind the old Inn building, were all looking well... More

We had a nice overnight stay here, clean, good service, very good food at the restaurant. i really liked the family feel and the way the place is run. i would recommend this for people who dont like chain hotels and prefer something more personal.

I have eaten at The Black Horse a few times. The welcome is always warm, the staff are always friendly and the food is extremely delicious. The choice of wine and ales is fantastic. It is just a little pricey though. Which is the only thing that stops me from eating there more often.

We stayed here for one night. Accommodation was great. Large modern room en suite. Very clean and warm. The Black Horse Inn is wonderful. Open fires and truely everything that an English pub should be. The staff are very nice. Genuinely friendly and helpful. Well worth the money and breakfast superb.

We booked a Saturday night here as building work was being carried out at home over the weekend. Quite easy to find down the narrow dark lanes on the peaceful North Downs. The chalet style accommodation down the hill from the pub was ideal, all named after country plants. Our en-suite room was warm, quiet and spacious. Breakfast, included in... More

We stayed here for an initial 3 nights as a base for visiting relatives in the Maidstone area in August. The rooms aren't in the pub itself but were in a separate accommodation only 30 or so metres from the rear of the pub. The rooms were pleasant, clean and spacious. Certainly all that we needed. The pub had great... More
