We stayed here for four nights end of September. All staff were very helpful, check-in very straight forward and we were made welcome. Rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The only downside regarding the rooms is that they are not attached to the pub by a covered walkway,(umbrellas provided in room), but this makes them quiet which is a plus.Some... More

We stayed all day for a wedding. From the moment we arrived till the morning we left the staff and service were faultless! The checking in was easy the rooms clean and comfy and food both in the pilgrim suite and pub area was superb. Recommend highly for a wedding venue.

Had our wedding here and can't say enough good things about the service we received. People going the extra mile to make everything special. Rooms were great for a wide range of guest types, all allocated based upon needs. Food good quality, pub has lovely atmosphere. Will enjoy visiting again for years.

The food was good and reasonably priced , but the rooms very verty 'economy' with spongey beds and definitely no frills. I was a little disappointed with the value for money of the B&B . Lovely location but sorry wouldn't stay again.

We have stayed at The Black Horse Inn many times and have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit was for my Birthday at the end of September, first visit with a baby! Staff in the restaurant very attentive and polite, so friendly and welcoming. The food is fantastic with a varied menu, the only problem we had was squeezing... More

Couldn't book a room so just went to the restaurant. Been several times over 5-6 years and always superb. The best sticky toffee pudding in the World bar none. Mary Berry would love it. Glorious rib eye steak. Missed not staying there as didn't get the wonderful breakfast.

Husband went on a gofling expedition, stayed here with a pal, and loved this place. Simple, clean as a whistle, comfortable accommodations, super location, wonderful staff, food, and service. For the price, he couldn't be happier. Came home a happy chap and that makes all the difference. cheers.

Spent one night there. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the food is gorgeous. It's a beautiful location. The rooms, although a short walk away from where you eat, are very clean, modern and comfortable. All lovely. Only one thing, the walls between the cabins are not brilliantly sound-proofed. If you have noisy neighbours you might find it... More

The room was lovely, very clean and... More
