Staying at the Travelodge near Gatwick airport for an early morning flight. Fancied a bit of a walk after a long car journey and ended up outside this pub (it's about a 15min walk from the hotel). It looks like a traditional country pub from the outside and the good appearances completely reflected the inside. The atmosphere was lovely and the menu has lots of options (a mixture of traditional pub food and more adventurous options). Three of us ate there and we all really enjoyed our meal. The service was good too. Really recommend as a change from hotel food!

This is a very nice pub serving good food. Light, airy and clean. We have visited three times. Prices are high and are not representative of those in other local eating establishments. Especially the soft drinks. The soft drinks in our hotel bar were significantly less than in the pub.

The sweets were delivered incorrectly and returned but not replaced. When mentioning at the bar the manager was most reluctant to adjust the bill despite the fact that a colleague admitted he had made a mistake.

A member of our party is disabled and the bays are conveniently adjacent to the entrance but unfortunately taken by a Range Rover, Jaguar and a Anglian window van non of which had a disabled badge visible. On mentioning this to the staff we were advised this was a sore point as all three vehicles were associated with the Landlady. This was not an isolated incident and did cause some inconvenience for us and presumably others.

The atmosphere is good especially when the garden can be used. Service can be slow but food is served with a smile and a restaurant service is available which saves the hassle of queuing a the bar.

Agee Sunday lunches are good.

The above comments were issues that can be remedied with a little more attention to the detail of customer care and would increase the rating of this pub in our opinion.

Whilst staying at gatwick for 2 nights, we decided to pop out for a drink, and came across the black horse. We found the service superb , but unfortunately the kitchen was closed..
We were so impressed by the welcome of cassie, and her very tall co-worker that we decided to return the next night for a meal.
This turned out to be one of our best decisions .
The food arrived quickly, and , although simple fair, was delicious. Two main courses, 1 pudding and 5 of cassies wonderful pimms.
All in all a great evening and we will be sure to return every time we are around this area..
Don't forget people... Try cassie's pimms !!!
