I have been to the Black Horse Tavern in Winchester several times over the past few months and the food and service have been good during each visit. The Black Horse is not large, with 10-14 tables and booths on one half of the restaurant...More

This is kind of my go-to place in the neighborhood. They were open during every snow storm which was awesome. The bar service is fabulous-since I'm usually by myself stopping in for a beverage or dinner.

We're going there on a regular basis - hopeing we will find a place :). It's a typical pub, on the nice not-divy side. The pub food is very good, and the service nice. But it is a busy place...

My wife and I visit Black Horse at least once a week for diner or lunch. Pub House food is exceptionally good and the brownie sundae is the best of all of the restaurants we've eaten at.

I've frequented the Black Horse Tavern since it opened. The staff is always attentive and the food and drink are excellent. Whether for dinner or just to watch a Red Sox game, it's always quite good.

After months of renovations at 32-38 Waterfield Road, the Black Horse Tavern is proud to open the doors on August 9th. Featuring a blend of casual tavern food, drink and specialty dishes, the Black Horse Tavern is pleased to be the first of its kind in downtown Winchester. The tavern was always a dream for life-long Winchester resident James Covino. With the August 9th opening, his dream is finally a reality. Coupled with his wife Kim's passion for great cuisine and cooking, the two set out on a year- long adventure to open downtown -Winchester's first pub-style eatery. They purchased the 32-38 Waterfield Road building and began renovations to satisfy Winchester's need for a restaurant that offers high quality and affordable cuisine.The Covinos' vision is to have the tavern rooted deeply in the Winchester community just like its namesake, the original Black Horse Tavern built in 1724. Historically located on the corner of Black Horse Terrace and Main Street, the tavern was demolished in 1892. It was an important meeting spot for soldiers during the Revolution as well as a place for townspeople to gather. The new Black Horse Tavern pays homage to the original with a comfortable, welcoming decor and a fantastic menu. Consisting of traditional tavern food and specialty dishes, the Black Horse Tavern is a great place to enjoy a sports game at the bar, a special dinner out, or an easy and fun family dining experience.
