A great refurb of what was a really depressing old pub. Done on a budget which is understandable as a small group and huge premises. Loads of space indoors and outdoors with very good food and drink. Service is maybe not wonderful, but good-natured and...More

Hi Bob Firstly, many many apologies, as you can see by previous reviews and our overall rating, your experience was not the normal experience at Black Horse. No excuse, but it was Mothering Sunday - we had been crazy busy and were nearly out of...More

Visited on a Saturday, initial thoughts on arrival, nice decor and layout, liked the table football and darts area at the end of the bar. Nice choice of beer, however not all were available. Our first drinks were marred by the fact that both glasses...More

I come here occasionally for a drink and decided to have a roast dinner to save cooking. Admittedly the roast was nice but for me The Black Horse is a glorified pub and not a restaurant so why add 10% service charge for 2 people....More

Took a group from work for a festive lunch, we were the only ones in there which is obviously a sign. Christmas special cocktails and mulled wine unavailable as respectively - the gingerbread men hadn't been cooked or the mulled wine put on to heat,...More
