We had another lovely meal with our children in this pub. The roasts were delicious plenty of vegetables and choice of meats. Though my husband and son did say the potatoes were a bit too hard. I had the thai curry again and again it was amazing! The boys loved the sticky toffee pud with custard... read more

We visited this pub for a birthday party with friends and family. The staff were very accommodating and the food was great! The pub has a huge garden, and on rainy days there's enough space indoors to accommodate. I Highly recommend the locally brewed "A Side Pocket for a Toad" ale, which is served on tap.

We went to the Black Horse after some of our group finished a long charity walk at the nearby Ivinghoe Beacon. Our advance booking was politely taken in advance and from arrival our group couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Everyone, staff and customers, were very friendly. Staff seemed genuinely interested to hear about some of the groups... More

Stopped here after a walk in the chilterns for some lunch, i wished i hadn't. It took ages to get served, the staff didn't seem to care that we'd been waiting quite some time. when our food arrived it could at best be described as distinctly average. The burger was cold and the kids food looked like it had be... More

Staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food is of excellent quality and piping hot. The pub is very dog friendly, which is an added bonus. Well worth a visit!

Not a good visit. Food was cold, mash was lumpy and the poor barmaid was spread far too thin so I ended up waiting 15 minutes for a cup of tea and when I sent my cold food back, I was offered a free drink which never arrived. When my replacement food arrived I didn't get any cutlery for five... More

I dropped in here with a friend after we had spent the morning putting up a shed and were in need of food and drink. The lunch menu was good, I had a "posh" fish finger sandwich and he had a ham and cheese toastie....both came with chips and were excellent value. A good selection of local beers and good... More

This is a pub in transition and will need further visits to see where it ends up. Staff friendly, nice and clean good choice of food and drinks but the overall feel from the regulars was not welcoming!
