Went for a light lunch. Had the broccoli and stilton soup which was delicious. However, bearing mind this is first and foremost a pub, as with so many places today it seems to lack a landlord. Or perhaps the owners were busy in the actual drinking bit of the pub. There were several young members of staff who were quite quick to serve us and were polite but we might as well have gone to a local coffee bar or restaurant. I love a pub atmosphere and a bit of banter but we didn't get any of that. To be fair, it was lunchtime and they were busy. Would we go back? Possibly.

Good choice of dishes, nicely cooked and well presented (for pub grub). Decor very pleasent. Quite bright and airy but not atmosheric. Sensible prices.

Parents live in Sidmouth and said they had an excellent meal on Sept 1st. Oh how things change. Choice of starters on the now "Winter" menu was very poor. No prawns in a seaside town? As there was a couple in front of us in the restaurant we were told to go into the bar to order drinks. Starters took an age to arrive. In the meantime two other tables got their mains who arrived after us. We got offered someone else's food. My "medium" steak was running with blood. No one asked if our meals were OK or if we would like anything else. Food certainly not worth the prices charged. 1/5

This hotel is has your usual run of the mill pub food. Looks like it was very nice at one stage but she has got a bit tired over the years, not saying it was grotty, they have definately made the most with what they have.
They have an extensive menu and quite reasonable prices.

Beautifully appointed Inn - the food is always appetizing and the staff are really attentive to the needs of the visitors. The "table service" area is especially enjoyable . The Black Horse Inn is very clean and the powder room is of a high standard.
