As locals, we decided to hold our son's christening and first birthday party at The Black Horse. We weren't disappointed. Nothing was too much trouble in terms of preparation and discussions about our day. We were able to discuss a buffet style menu with welcome drinks prior to the event with a very personalised approach, catering to our needs in... More

Having arrived on time for our 19:00 booking, we ordered drinks and went to the table. We ordered our food at 19:15, (sausage & mash and steak & ale pie) Two other tables placed orders after us, both party's received their food at least 30 minutes before us. A member of staff came to the table to apologise for the... More

A birthday treat from my wife was a pub lunch in one of my favourite places. It was our first visit this year so were unaware of any change of ownership until we just read about it here. Couldn't detect any change from our last visit. Same excellent service, food, beer and that view!! Unfortunately we were the only diners... More

One of my new favourites! I have been here a number of times and the food is great each time, I am constantly surprised at the good value (considering the breathtaking views). The starters were very tasty (Brie), the burgers are amasing, the sunday dinner was lovely etc etc. Cant complain what so ever! My family are not from the... More

Interesting old fashioned pub premises that are now used as a restaurant. The village is tiny and the views superb so a cracking location but the signs on the door for a new chef and new staff should have given us a clue about what to expect. Positives were good portions and good value for money but ..................something lacking in... More

New owner is trying to make a difference but is hampered by some useless staff and is therefore struggling to cope. Basic pub menu and good portions but some parts served cold and not what was ordered (eg salad instead of veg). Good selection of beers and amazing view - I hope he can get it sorted

We booked by phone on Thursday to book a lunch for Friday 23rd May and changed the booking on Friday to change to Saturday. No problem at all. On arrival on Saturday we were welcomed and seated at our reserved table. The drinks and food orders were taken straight away and the starters were served within 10 minutes and the... More

We bought a Groupon voucher for this place. After seeing mixed reviews on here we weren't expecting the place to be amazing, but nothing could prepare us for how terrible our whole experience was. First there was the waiting. After sitting down at our table we waited for 30 minutes for someone to take our order. After no one came... More

Not that easy to find, no signs on main road ( may be council stops that) No car park, parking would not be that easy in winter. Nice views. Pub type menu and reasonable and sensible price, drinks aswell. Service okay, good vegetarian choice; we felt food lacked much flavour but plenty of it. If you have been for walk... More

Called there for Sunday lunch, very old pub with stunning views so has plenty of character, limited menu, we both chose onion rings with a dip as other options were not great they were fine, and a large portion one would have done for the two of us, they were genuinely home made, but not well home made, my main...
