We booked to use The Dark Horse for a private family celebration for around 35 people. My husband and myself were the only 2 members of our family who had eaten here before, so it was on our recommendation that the venue was chosen. Without exception, everyone loved the setting and atmosphere of the Dark Horse, from the original flooring... More

I have wanted to come to this restaurant for a long time and when we read a write up in the local press, we decided to go on the off chance for New Year's Eve. The restaurant is definitely out in the country and if you are looking for something different, then this is the place to be, with quirky... More

Have eaten here before whilst under different management. Revisited as in the area and our last visit was 5*. This visit, well, was such a disappointment. Firstly the service was extremely slow as only 1 person serving. We were asked for a drinks order prior to meal. Was never asked for any further drinks throughout entire meal, asked for a... More

For several years this restaurant has had mixed reviews locally. Recently there have been one or two good write ups in the local press so some friends and I decided to try it for lunch. Three of us had slow cooked belly of pork and I had risotto. My husband and one friend said the pork was only lukewarm, there... More

Dark Horse has an amazing feel to it. The area is amazing, set in a very large area of land. The original flooring is great, as is the bar, in one of the stables. The food was perfect and I cannot complain. It looked like they only had two front of house staff on last night, but they managed it... More

Booked a table for lunch with a friend. Very easy to find but well out the way. You walk into the entrance, converted old cobbled stables which were dark and cosy, so it was a surprise to enter the dining room to find it very bright and almost cafe looking. That said, the music in the back ground was a... More

The stables with original rough cobbled floors are a lovely place for a pre-meal drink, and the restaurant is small and bright, overlooking a courtyard. The lunch menu was very extensive and all six of us thought the food was excellent. The portions were very generous, beautifully prepared and presented. Will certainly go back and look forward to an evening... More
