“Nice neighorhood pub”
Review of Black Horse Tavern

Black Horse Tavern
Ranked #6 of 40 Restaurants in Winchester
Price range: $0 - $24
Cuisines: American
Description: After months of renovations at 32-38 Waterfield Road, the Black Horse Tavern is proud to open the doors on August 9th. Featuring a blend of casual tavern food, drink and specialty dishes, the Black Horse Tavern is pleased to be the first of its kind in downtown Winchester. The tavern was always a dream for life-long Winchester resident James Covino. With the August 9th opening, his dream is finally a reality. Coupled with his wife Kim's passion for great cuisine and cooking, the two set out on a year- long adventure to open downtown -Winchester's first pub-style eatery. They purchased the 32-38 Waterfield Road building and began renovations to satisfy Winchester's need for a restaurant that offers high quality and affordable cuisine.The Covinos' vision is to have the tavern rooted deeply in the Winchester community just like its namesake, the original Black Horse Tavern built in 1724. Historically located on the corner of Black Horse Terrace and Main Street, the tavern was demolished in 1892. It was an important meeting spot for soldiers during the Revolution as well as a place for townspeople to gather. The new Black Horse Tavern pays homage to the original with a comfortable, welcoming decor and a fantastic menu. Consisting of traditional tavern food and specialty dishes, the Black Horse Tavern is a great place to enjoy a sports game at the bar, a special dinner out, or an easy and fun family dining experience.

Black Horse Tavern is a pub with good food and service and not so great acoustics - translated - don't expect to hear your dindin companions without shouting! It's an easy place to go for a beverage and fast bite.

This is good family place--especially nice in warm weather when the open windows give it a "sidewalk cafe" feel. The menu is American and has a good range of price points

This is a great pub style restaurant right in winchester center. Great place for a Friday or Saturday night, or any night for that matter. We love the black horse burger. Best burger anywhere. Also the pecan Gorgonzola salad with grilled shrimp added is just fabulous. Just wish you could get their unbelievably good rolls without asking

They have great dinner salads and a great lamb burger. The restaurant and bar area are very small and sometimes you have to wait. In my opinion not the wait, I usually walk around town to find another restaurant. Because it is small it can also be rather noisy.
