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!

Food was beautiful, perfectly cooked and a joy to... More

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

This place is a real gem! Its a gorgeous 18th century pub/restaurant with lots of charm and character, set in beautiful surroundings. Inside is cosy and inviting with lots of original dark wooden beams covered in hops. My boyfriend & I have eaten here a number of times and each time the food and service has been very good. I...

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
