The Sly Horse has been in existence for many years and the food and service was always good. It was located in the Village Green in Crofton since the 1960s, but closed over a year ago. Please make a note of it for other reviewers.

Place closed a few months back due to lack of sales. A new pub is expected to open in its place some time this fall.

It used to be one of my favorites -- interesting ambiance -- good food and drinks. Thought it was a nice neighborhood restaurant until we found someone's wedding ring in the salad and didn't appreciate the management's reaction.

I've lived less than a mile from the Sly Horse for 28 years and because of my experiences there can count the number of times I've been to the restaurant on one hand, each time hoping it will shine. The staff is nice enough, but overwhelmed and handling way too much to be attentive to detail (e.g. waiting tables AND... More

The ambience is so comfortable, the fireplace, the booths, the wood floors and furnishings, the food was excellent and service superb! The 4 of us each had a different entree and appetizer, shared each one and were delighted with every bite! We will go back soon!

The Sly Horse is tucked away in the Crofton neighborhood. The interior takes you back to colonial times with a design patterned after Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg, VA. It has an excellent menu and a separate selection of specials on the "Horse Sheet". We enjoyed dinner with our daughter enjoying seafood, lamb, fantastic crab soup, and bread pudding to die... More
