Nice pub, shame about the very, very long wait for food

We called in here for lunch after a visit to Climping beach. We arrived around 1pm, and it was very quiet - there were approx 4 other tables with people sitting at them. We ordered food then settled down to enjoy our drinks in the pleasant atmosphere. 35 minutes later the guy who took our order... read more

As we were staying close by we had booked a meal at this pub. The food was very good in a very friendly atmosphere. Music is provided on some nights. Worth a visit.

I can't fault the food or the excellent service but do feel that its very over priced for what you get.

Hadn't been here since the last 'take-over - how far can a pub sink! Went for lunch but just had a drink and left. Didn't want to eat here. It was everything negative others have said before me and for a lovely quiet sunny afternoon in a beautiful rural setting in a fantastic old inn, the music system was so... More

We booked in our party of 5 adults for a Saturday night recently, wanting to repeat the great experiences that we have had in the past at the Black Horse. It's a bit of the beaten track and really only approachable by car - hence it is good that they have a reasonalby sized free car park out the back.... More

Food was ok here it was hot and home cooked , but the place itself was dirty shabby and some of the waiting staff needed to smarten up their appearance , and not look like they'd just fallen out of bed !

Visited 2 weeks ago, had Moules to start with and then Monkfish, with a tomato based sauce, served with asparagus and sautee pots. Absolutely lovely. Great value and quality.
