I absolutely love it here, the food is amazing! I have never stayed in the hotel because I live so close but if it's anything like the restaurant, I imagine it's lovely. The restaurant is beautiful and cosy, it's especially great in the winter.

I visited the Black Horse on Sunday afternoon with my close family, this was a treat from my family for my birthday the previous Wednesday . Great atmosphere, great food and plenty of it, just my kind of meal. The restaurant was busy, a sure sign of a great experience. I would definitely return.

My daughter was married here (Mr and Mrs Tree). The venue was perfect for a small intimate party. Michelle and her team were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious and everyone had a really great day. Thank you Michelle would we would recommend The Black Horse to everyone. Maggie Seymour

Had a one night stay en-route to a wedding. Greeted by a very smiley and welcoming young man who gave us our room key, advised where to park and booked us in for dinner. The room\chalet was at the bottom of a hill and unfortunately this meant the WiFi connection was poor and kept dropping out. This was an issue...

I went as part of a birthday celebration. The staff were very friendly and helpful, good atmosphere but the food was ok, nothing special. The setting is fabulous as is the seating area outside, with ample parking. I didn't stay overnight so cannot comment on the hotel side of things.

We recently enjoyed a two night stay here. The rooms were comfortable and spacious, but a little warm overnight, even with the windows open. Opening the windows allowed a little more comfort, but road noise from the nearby motorway was annoying. This minor annoyance was more than compensated for by the standard of the food. First class would be an...

I was a guest at a wedding here. First, it is a pleasant location and the breakfast staff and the maintenance staff are by and large very pleasant. The restaurant meals are good. But as a wedding venue there is something you need to know. I suspect that in the past a wedding party has got out of hand because...

Travelling to France from the far-north of England with family and two dogs could (and has been) a nightmare. This cosy and popular pub/restaurant/hotel near Maidstone stands out like a beacon for knackered travellers. It's only about 30miles from the Channel Tunnel terminal, and takes about half-an hour. There's Excellent food in the restaurant (full menu on their website) -...

Was recommended here because the food was good and they have accommodation, but what a great find! From the minute we entered the bar area until we left on Sunday morning, the hospitality, atmosphere and food were exceptional. Whilst only half an hour from us, we could have been anywhere in the UK, so wonderfully out of the way is...
