The brilliant thing about the Darkhorse is that you are made to feel important and like the only guest in the restaurant. Greeted by Matt or Mos the welcome and the instant attention to being looked after. Followed by the engagement from the owners, Lee and Ian, being very hands on. As the kitchen is open planned, George and team are on hand cooking and engaging with the customers. Food is of a very high standard as are the cocktails made by Matt. Thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Not just local but further afield. Great public transport links. We look forward to them opening for takeaways and again fully open in December. Big 👍🏻 For the establishment.

I have been coming to Darkhorse for years now and every time it's an absolute joy. The atmosphere is cozy but not cramped, the service attentive but not too intrusive, the cocktails to die for and the food always of impeccable quality. As well as old favourites (squid arancini with saffron mayo) I love to try new dishes too as I know I won't get disappointed. Top marks.

Our waiter this time seemed very lost. The most disappointing was the dessert - we waited for a long time and it was disgusting: the crumble wasn’t crumble, it was lump the size of a tumour hard as rock and way tooo sharp!

Best roast chicken I've ever eaten. I'm just sad I won't get to try any of the rest of the menu because I can't imagine ordering anything else.

It was so good to be back and everything was just as good as ever. Our guest who is a real foody and a chef running her own local food business was very impressed as we knew she would be. We will be back again soon. Heather x
