Description: The Black Horse in the centre of Woburn is a quintessential English village pub with a truly fantastic restaurant tucked away inside. Make your way through the picturesque 18th century fa��ade and cosy bar, and you���ll discover a rather chic dining room serving up delicious English dishes. With its exposed beams, friendly service and stellar ���best of British��� menu, this is the kind of place that invites you to kick back with a bottle of wine and while away a lazy afternoon. A little gem, The Black Horse even has a hidden courtyard which is splendidly sunny during the summer months. The Head Chef Trevor Blake has put together an accomplished menu featuring free range chicken and eggs, artisan cheeses, native fish and British cuts of lamb and beef. The menu at The Black Horse is exhaustive, and the brilliant food is accompanied by an exciting selection of wines and real ales.

We were looking for somewhere to have a tea/coffee break in Woburn and didn't think it would be too hard but boy, were we wrong! Considering the lovely place Woburn is with the Abbey and Animal Park etc a nice tea and cake cafe shouldn't be hard to find....there is a cafe/ restaurant just down from Loch Fynne but on... More

Walked in the dark pub, stood around until we were noticed and we asked for a table. Told we cannot sit in the restaurant for another 40 mins as apparently the room and main menu was not available before. We ended going out a fire door, opting to sit in the garden rather than the bar. There was used ashtrays... More

Our A La Carte Menu is offered from 12-3pm and then again 6pm-10pm Monday to Friday. It appears that you visited us between 3-6pm when you are correct we offer a reduced menu option. This includes 5 different Deli Boards, Soup, 5 main courses and 3 sandwiches. I find it very disappointing that you have decided to leave such a... More

We came here as a half way point to meet friends. First impression was was that the tables are very cramped together . Menu looked very interesting but a little on the pricey side. If you add the grilled garnish and chips to a steak then the price increases by nearly 50%. - However the quality of the food and... More

Having eaten here before and the service and quality of food being superb, albeit a little pricey, we ate here yesterday with friends after recommending the venue for a special occasion. The whole experience from start to finish was a complete and utter disappointment. The service was terribly slow (we arrived at 1pm and after our 3 courses eventually left... More

Thank you for your recent review. It seems that on this occasion we did not meet the usual high standards that I expect from The Black Horse. I hope that your most recent visit does not deter you from coming again as you mention that your previous visit was superb. We hope to see you again soon. More

This is my first ever TA review having never felt strongly enough to do so before. Having just had the worst meal out in years I feel compelled to write. We have eaten at the Black Horse 3 times before over the years and never had a problem so felt safe to pop in after a swim in the area.... More

Booked a table to dine on 11/07. Whilst the food and wine were both of high standard, it was definately the staff and excellent customer service which would encourage me to go back. Staff were attentive but not over powering and their food recommendations were excellent. Lovely evening and would definately book again.
