We were attending a birthday party in the Missing Sock nearby, and booked into the Black Horse because it was local (More on that later) a good price (£50 or so for the night) and had good reviews on here.
What a great place! The room that we had was one of a purpose built block at the back of the pub, and was brand new, very clean and extremely comfortable.
There was lots of local info in the room, and nice touches like the paper cover on the toilet seat.
The only downside, and I only mention it to pre warn other travellers as it is obviously nothing to do with the Black Horse, is that a taxi to anywhere within a couple of miles (i.e. the missing sock where we were going) carries a hefty call out charge from Cambridge, as there are no local ones apparently. Would have been about £40 for us to go 2 miles down the road and back.
Breakfast the next day was absolutely brilliant - miles better than what I have regularly had in more expensive hotels. Great quality bacon and sausages, free range eggs, everything else just right, and it was only £7 extra.
I will definitely make this my base to visit Cambridge and the general area fom in the future.
