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

I've heard lots of great reviews about this pub over the years however this is the first time I've ever visited. Im pleased I booked as the place was very busy so I would recommend pre booking to guarantee a table. The pork roast I ordered was a great size, lots of large roast potatoes, a huge Yorkshire, crackling, parsnips,... More

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.
