“Terrific Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Black Horse is in Thorndon just south of Eye in Suffolk with easy access from the A140 Ipswich / Norwich road. The pub is very quaint with beams. An excellent bar and excellent value for money. The Sunday Lunch Carvery is very good value for money. It is advisable to book on Sunday for lunch.

“Lovely venue for an informal meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Met here with friends for the first time in April this year. Lovely atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming.

Food was great, standard fare with a little twist to keep your interest, for example hand cooked chips and spicy sauces. Chef's specials are definitely to be recommended from what we saw.

Desserts consits of ice creams, sundaes and sticky puddings, all looked very tasty.

Definitely a family pub, with good beer and a very nice atmosphere.

“Pleasant Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Family Sunday lunch. Four adults, four children under 13 and a dog. The main course was good. I had a Sunday roast beef from the carvery and a pint of Norfolk Poacher (Brandon Brewery). The beer had been kept well. I had a crumble for my sweet.which I was a bit disappointed with. The service was faultless.
