“Great food and good value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We had dinner here the night before flying out from Gatwick, staying at the Travelodge nearby. It is close enough to walk if you want to drink, but is a good 20 minutes.

Food excellent, good portions and value for money. The staff were very friendly

“Country pub short walk from airport hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Just over 10 minutes walk from Holiday Inn at gatwick airport, the Black Horse offers a good range of pub food without a long wait. Nice ales from the Badger brewery and a rural setting with plenty of tables outside as well. Mini desserts also available.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I and my wife recently stayed at Hookwood manor overnight before flying out of Gatwick. I booked a table for two for an evening meal at the Black Horse. What can I say, the atmosphere was welcoming, the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, the ale was wonderful and the food was extremely good. There was an excellent choice on the menu. When We ordered, we had very little time to wait until our food arrived. I had beef and ale pie and my wife had steak, both were well presented on the plates and tasted wonderful. The steak was cooked to perfection. For pudding we both had a trifle sundae, Oh I could drive the 100 odd miles again just to have another one.

If ever you are flying out of Gatwick and need an early morning check in, I suggest using Tudor Rose Parking and book into their hotel (Hookwood manor) I paid £103 for 8 days parking and 1 nights accommodation, and then get yourselves down to the Black Horse for the fantastic food.

“Nice Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Second time we have eaten here. We were staying at the Best Western and its not far to walk after we had parked the car before our holidays.

We both enjoyed our shared platter and then a main course, attended to very well, a good bottle of good wine helped it all go down very well.

A good start to our holiday, and we will use again.
