We went there on the Saturday, I had a wonderful Fish and Chips and my husband had a dellicious Beef Pie at a reasonable price, so we came back on Sunday to try the Sunday Lunch I had the half Roasted Chicken which was a little dry and my husband had the Beef it was two large inch thick steaks of beef, it was so tender and tasty that I was begging him for more bits of the succulant beef, I offered him myleg of chicken and he shook his head, I offfered him my breast, he thought for a moment, licked his lips and said "You must be dreaming" as he put another large portion of beef into his mourth, for that very small moment I hated him, Aww how I wished I had gone for the Beef. We had great Service, and the wine was reasonably priced, on the menu they did a full English Breakfast, Sausages, bacon, Free Range Eggs, Flat Mushroom, Baked Beans, Grilled Tomoato, Toast and Butter,.all for an unbelievable
£3.49 What more can you say, but yummy.!!!

As 3 mature ladies who lunch, we decided after some research to have our early festive lunch here as it offered excellent value for money and also because we had such a good time last year. And what a lovely time we had. Our table was all set up with crackers and festive table ware, there was even a Christmas card for us. We had pre-ordered from the very good selection on offer on the festive menu - 3 courses for 13.99. We each had a different starter and then turkey with trimmings and festive crumble and custard. The food was hot and tasty with very generous servings. I had prawns for a starter - lots of prawns and bread very fresh. Turkey meal came with 4 veg, a yorkshire pudding, loads of meat and very crunchy yummy roasties. Desert was hot and tasty - apple crumble with mincemeat in the topping and thick custard. There were also mince pies at the end (which we took home as we were so full!). I can't comment on the beer as we were all on soft drinks - it was lunchtime! Service was excellent - we were made to feel very welcome, Tynan was very friendly and attentive but without being cloying. We enjoyed it so much we wanted to book for next year there and then! The pub also has an attractive looking beer garden, although we did not use it. I would definitely recommend the Black Horse for food and service,

An outstanding pub which is suitable for family and kids also with dogs allowed.it also have a night life two. With the professional level over snd beyond there is nothing to complain about. If your looking for a chill and relaxing meal with great and responsible order during the day then black horse is the place to be with outstanding food and drinks variety.
The kitchen team and bar does an outstanding jobs to be able to keep us happy and know there information.

Management is an outstanding team as well able to manage the pub when its under high pressure of customers.
