The food is pretty good. I really like their burger, and sweet potato fries. Good place to have a simple family dinner.

My sister and I stopped here for lunch and it was terrific. We ate in the pub and loved the atmosphere. We wanted comfort food and opted for the macaroni and cheese. It was very good. So were the salads and the coffee. If I am in Mendham again, I would definitely eat here again. The shopping was also great.

I was looking for a nice place to meet my sister half way between our home and hers (in Pennsylvania) for a nice relaxed birthday dinner. I found the Black Horse Tavern & Pub roughly half way and after reading some mostly good reviews decided to give it a try. We made a 6:30 reservation in the Tavern and arrived... More

A small restuarant in a small but wealthy town. The food is quite good. Not great, but OK. There are very few waiters and, as a result, the serivce is very slow. After receiving our check, we immediatley put out a credit card on the table and waited almost 15 minutes for the waiter to take it. The prices are... More

I have lived in Mendham for 10+ years. Though I have eaten at the Pub many times due to convenience and lack of other good restaurants in town (competition would help here!) I can say that the food is consistently sub-par. Some locals do come here, mostly for the bar, but many in town do not eat here. We now... More

Pub: Charming old style ambience, lively, noisy. Excellent food , but they've raised prices and are no longer individually owned , with new corporate ownership. Still felt the same local friendliness, attentive service and excellent food. Did not appreciate being seated though against a constantly clanging bus tray behind our heads (ouch my ears ) considering the restaurant was not... More

Had really wanted to go to the main restaurant but it was Monday and they were closed. The Pub is right next door and open so we on in. The décor is wonderful, gives the feeling of a road house. It looks to have been the carriage foe Inn and is beautifully transformed. We were seated quickly and cared for... More

Came here for the first time (Tavern, not Pub) for dinner tonight (Saturday). Upon entering, felt like a nice, warm, friendly tavern; not pretentious or stuffy. We were quickly seated and for the rest of the meal had great, attentive service, including by the GM. While the 30 day dry aged strip steak was amazing, the shrimp appetizer wasn't as... More

Raw bar is always very good, so long as you keep to pub-type food you won't be disappointed. Bubbly shrimp appetizer always a fav.
