“Sunday Lunch”

Old Black Horse Inn
Ranked #400 of 1,494 Restaurants in Leicester
Description: Located a short drive from the centre of Leicester in the village of Houghton on the Hill, the Old Black Horse Inn is a traditional village pub, which has been refreshed, creating a warm and relaxing place for a bite to eat, a leisurely drink or a hearty dinner. Inside there’s a beautifully renovated main bar and snug, where dogs are welcome and a separate spacious dining area and conservatory. It’s a pub for all seasons, with a wood-burning stove and open fire keeping things toasty in winter and a terrace and garden to be enjoyed when the sun shines. The large beer garden is a lovely spot, with views of the surrounding rolling green fields and trees. In keeping with the pub’s surrounds, home-cooked modern British food that makes the most of local produce is served. The seasonally changing menu consists of much loved pub classic dishes, which are enhanced by daily specials and delicious Sunday Roasts. Weekend breakfasts are served on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10am.

Nicely presented Sunday roast ... unfortunately not very warm ...
Good service ....and the 2 ladies waiting on we’re very pleasant .

On a personal point I don’t understand why you have to have rap music playing
with full bass on ...while your having Sunday lunch ?

Wife and I popped in on a chance on a Friday night, never expecting a result, but we got a table and were delighted with the result.
Predictably I had the surf and turf steak and pepper sauce which was well cooked, well presented and accompanied included a batch of garlic prawns. I chose potato wedges over fries which again was super.
Wife had the fish pie with potato topping, packed with prawns and fish the pie had a delightful taste.
Local beers and ales abound but we kept it to one each resulting in a bill under £50.00.
I reccomend a visit but don't tell a soul.

We ate here as a party of 8 late morning today; although we all ordered different foods from the menu, it all came out together and was absolutely delicious, and all the food was hot.

Service at the bar was ever so friendly - including checking whether had registered re: parking - and didn't have to queue at all.

Would definitely go back next time we are in Leicester.

They also had a very good vegetarian range - which wasn't all spicy options like you get in some places.

Having heard that the venue was under new management, we booked a table on the day by phone for later that evening, and were told that we were booked in.

After we arrived, we were told that there was no table and that they were fully booked. Unfortunately it seemed as though the venue had recorded the booking on the wrong day, by their error.

The staff were exceptionally unhelpful and unsympathetic. We were turned away and told to came back the next day, when they had recorded the booking.

Unhelpful bordering on rude, I would suggest avoiding.
