The Black Horse is a great local pub in Trowbridge - would like to be able to offer a review. I selected "English" as the type of cuisine only because "Pub" wasn't an option - it should be, given that Café and Diner are listed as options.

Children cutlery was such a lovely touch

Any thought of the newly refurbished place were put on hold when the waiter came out with child sized knife and fork for my granddaughters (Aged 6 and 2) What a fantastic idea which make eating out more pleasurable for them.

Went to Black Horse today. Girl behind bar was helpful and polite. Then it went down hill from there on in. Food arrived quite quickly. Too quickly as it was hot on the outside and cold in the middle. I had chicken and even though it was cooked through it was hard like old boots and cold in the middle.... More

I had steak & ale pie (which I typically love) and it was tasteless. Followed up with sticky toffee pudding which was more sugar than flavour.

A very nice meal, we had a pleasant evening nice surroundings great atmosphere. Food was reasonably priced and bar staff friendly but bested by the female (duty??) manager who knew just how to make us all, from the smallest to the oldest, feel welcome

Used to go here quite regularly, pub chain food so you knew what you were getting but recently the standard has dropped. I had chicken wings as a starter and found stale mayonnaise stuck to the side of the bucket, steak was so gristly I could not chew it. I will not go back for a while

After having several meals out and being dissapointed, I was reluctant to have yet another cold meal, but what a lovely time my family and I had at the Black Horse. Very welcoming, had a lovely round table, waitress was very good and attentive but not too much. Oh and the food was really good, lovely and hot, and steaks... More
