Chose Monday evening, hoping for a quiet atmosphere to enjoy our family meal out. It was indeed relaxing, but there was a constant buzz of both diners and drinkers, so obviously a well-loved venue even on a early weekday evening. We were lucky with the weather so the views from the conservatory were stunning and we could understand a number... More

I visited this pub again,as my friend lives in the area and sadly despite its raving new reviews it did not live up to either mine or my friends expectations.We ordered soup ,which I admit is not a priority when the pub was very busy serving full meals,drinks etc..nonetheless i felt 'our buisness' although small was not valued.The soup was...

I visited with family on a beautiful and hot evening. We sat in the conservatory, where the views were breath-taking. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly and welcoming and were thoroughly attentive throughout the whole evening. We will definitely will visiting again.

We've been up a few times for pints under the new ownership but never for food until last night. What a wonderful decision... We sat outside and ordered some bits from the very enticing menu. So tasty we just couldn't get enough!.. The mini chorizo were to die for and so we're the squid! Some of the best chips I've... More

I paid my second visit to the Black Horse today. I was lucky enough to have chosen a lovely sunny day....the best time to appreciate the stunning views from the conservatory and garden! I was impressed again with the choice available for the gluten-free diner. This time I chose the fish and chips, a rare treat! It was an excellent... More

Stopped here for a quick pint while my wife was visiting a friend nearby. The weather was nice so i sat outside and admired the view, lovely garden to spend a summers afternoon in, shame i didn't have longer. I'll be back if I'm in this neck of the woods again!

Had evening meal on a Saturday night. Hadn't booked but staff managed to find us a table. Very friendly and attentive. Food good and reasonable price. Good pint of local ale. Obviously recently refurbished, simply and in keeping.
