Good food, inconsistent service

We have been to Black Horse Tavern a few times for lunch and dinner. Neat old building. The atmosphere is nice, good food including some creative menu items (except salads are so-so) and good drink options. Our early experiences were good, and inspired us to go back for lunch on a weekend, bringing... read more

Met my husband for drinks at this cute corner bar in newtown,pa. It just happened to be trivia happy hour with correct answers resulting in free cocktails! The crowd was 35 and older so it was nice. The bar area was small but friendly. The drinks were good and the bar snacks were tasty. I enjoyed the truffle frites. It... More

Solid meal. Came out fairly quickly and had a good overall atmosphere. There didn't seem there was much room for seating so I am unsure how they would handle a big rush. That being said, the restaurant was not very crowded and we went on Valentine's Day.

The Black Horse use to be the place to go but not anymore. There is a new chef so the food is okay but the cocktails are cheap and they use cheap alcohol even when you order premium. Go somewhere else.

I asked the bartender specifically for a "captain and ginger" I proceeded to watch the bartender fill the drink with calico jack (a lower grade much, much cheaper liquor) she then gave me the drink and I drank it thinking they were out of the captain morgan. Then the bill showed that the bartender had in fact charged for the... More

Happy hour, I believe from 5 to 7 every day is fun and a great deal. A nice selection of drinks plus some tasty bargain-priced food makes it a good place. Located in the middle of lovely Newtown in an old stone building, it has a nice feel. On friday nights they have a trivia hour with a free drink... More

This place was highly recommended when we were looking for somewhere to eat. Unfortunately, we were highly disappointed in the food itself. The burgers were small, overcooked, the cheese was rubbery, items that were suppose to be w/ the burgers were missing, the lettuce was yellow, the fries were soggy and limp. The truffle fries barely had anything on them.... More

Had an early dinner on Valentines night, and brought our 2 small kiddos. Prices were ok. Service was very good but the ribeye was amazing! My hubby got the fillet and he agreed my meal was better. The truffle fries are good too!

I've been for dinner twice now. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and I love the heritage aspect, but both meals left me unenthused. I don't even remember what I had the first visit. It just wasn't memorable either way. Last time I went, I ordered a salad and then a steak. I'm not sure if I was unclear, but... More
