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.

This used to be one of our favourite gastro pubs and have visited too many times to remember. However of late both the quality of the food , which is some of the most expensive around and the service has dropped to an all time low. This is now a very average place to eat in but at west end... More

Starters – special and fish board(s) are good, but perhaps over priced for what you get. My wife and two daughters ordered steak and these were served in poor condition… charcoaled, burned hard on the outside. Its shame as they (BH) use Aubrey Allen. I don’t eat red meat and prefer a low fat diet… so when I asked the... More

We hadn't booked but had arrived at noon on a Friday so we're able to grab a table. The place soon filled up in the bar area although there was some space in the restaurant part. Specials board was interesting and the menu pretty extensive. Service good but clearly at busy times they might struggle. Shared the mini loaf with... More

We are not local but do come to Bedfordshire from time to time. Discovered this place on a previous visit and stopped for lunch. Enjoyed it so much and our dog made welcome too (bar area only) so this time decided to go in the evening for a meal and bring a guest. Telephoned prior to arrival to attempt to... More

Last minute decision to try the Black Horse, for Sunday lunch while on our way home from a day out. Although we felt the service was a little slow, the meal was fantastic. I went for the roast lamb. The portions were ample and everything was cooked to perfection, including the roast potatoes, which were crispy on the outside and... More

Nothing from the outside view gives a clue to this lovely gastro pub inside. Great decor, clean and bright surroundings set you up for a not too expensive pub lunch Served by efficient charming waitresses, our order was delivered promptly. My dish was steak sandwich in ciabatta bread my wife cheddar cheese on granary , both served with chips. With... More

Whist I often pop in for a drink its a long time since I have eaten here, for no other reason than it is the other side of town. A good selection on the menu with some interesting specials made for an enjoyable meal. The Duck was declared as very good, the Pork T bone tasty, the bass risotto went... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed it. However recently we have noticed the service, in particular the bar staff to be quite poor. An example being when I last visited I went to the bar, "what do you want?" I presumed/hoped he meant what drinks I wanted so I ordered. In the order... More

The Black Horse has a lovely village pub feel which makes it a good place to meet friends for food and drinks. I ordered the salmon fishcake which came with spinach in a garlic butter, my friend ordered the Favourites Board. There was a good selection on the specials board and it's a nice touch that the service come over... More
