Reviewed October 31, 2013

Superb inn in a fantastic location and excellent value for money. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Amanda, who is a dynamic little ball of energy and fun. The place is absolutely immaculate from top to bottom (all done by Amanda - does she ever sleep?!) and the service was excellent (Amanda again - amongst other lovely girls) The food is absolutely first class, cooked by Amanda's husband Andrew. If this place were closer to where we live in the South, we would be eating there every week as we do not have any restaurants locally that come anywhere close to the quality of the food we ate at the Blackamoor. Thank you also for putting up balloons and a banner in honour of my husband's 60th birthday celebration - very much appreciated!

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was small but immaculately clean. I don't know if there are bigger ones...

Our first visit here under the new owners. The pub was warm due to a lovely fire and looked much cleaner and brighter than before. We chose from the early bird menu. The food was very good, served on hot plates and very good value for money, Service was swift and friendly. We will certainly return.

Visited today for the second time, the first time we had the early bird 3 courses, the choice was good but the portions were a little small. Having said that, after having the 3 courses we had eaten enough. The service was good and the young man serving was very pleasant.
On today's visit we ate from the normal menu and received generous portions of everything we ordered and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The only downside to both our visits were we were seated at the first table as you go up the steps, the two young girls waiting on seem to hang about against the sideboard which houses the till. Each time they have been discussing what's been happening at college, my husband and I have found it very off putting to have them both stand there just watching us whilst we are eating.
Other than this the pub is beautiful with a lovely welcoming atmosphere.

Can only describe our experience staying at this Inn as Excellent in every respect. Humorous welcome on arrival. A lovely room with tea and coffee facilties with biscuits. Comfortable bed. Roomy en-suite with large shower area. Everything immaculate. We had an evening meal chosen from an extensive menu - excellent food and served with a smile. Breakfast was certainly plentiful and well presented. Plent room to park the car and quite near to Rippon. Very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We were in room 4 it had a very comfortable bed and decor was fresh - beautiful. With a view of Ripp...

I booked three nights at the Blackamoor Inn solely on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and arrived with great expectations. These were all fully realised and MUCH MUCH MORE !!
I eagerly look forward to my next visit, it can't come too soon. Many thanks.

We have just come back from a two night stay at this Inn. The atmosphere was excellent, the hosts very welcoming and you were put at ease, everywhere was spotless and the food was absolutely fantastic. Top quality produce used, meat dishes were so tender took no cutting with a knife!! The breakfast followed on with quality bacon, sausages, and free-range eggs. Home made bread was served with home-made soups. Beds were comfortable and the sheets were top quality. Can't wait until we book again. Thanks to everyone for making our visit special.

Come to the Blackamoor every year when in the area, and it is just a lovely night out. The staff are friendly the atmosphere great, the inn is well tastefully decorated with a lovely olde world interior. A roaring fire greeted us and sitting comfortably with a drink we had a laugh with other waiting diners while we choose our meals. We were led into the dining room and soon we were tucking into starters of home made pâté, which our friend was offered home made chilli jam instead of the stated picallii which he does not like, seafood pancakes, piping hot full of flavour, and a prawn cocktail beautifully presented. Mains were chicken stuffed with goats cheese, chicken on roasted Mediterranean veg and two scottish haddock. All were gorgeous, homemade tartare sauce for the fish, freshly cooked veg and hand made chips. Our friends were so impressed that they went back with their friends the next night, and their friends booked for another night what more is there to be said.
