All our main courses were beautifully cooked and presented. My venison was excellent.
A very nice meal - we will be back
Very efficient and friendly staff. The food was excellent and we were helped with choosing the wine.
Fantastic service and food, may our visit very special
When we arrived a little early at 7.15pm for a 7.45pm booking to dine with friends, hoping to have a drink first, we were told that we would have to go to our table straight away, as the bar area would get congested. Also, we were shown to a table for two, rather than for four. It took several minutes for the booking mistake to be corrected and for a table to be found and set for dinner. But after that everything was fine, except that the service was a little slow, but it was a busy evening.
We arrived early and were seated straight away. Food was delicious. Staff were polite and attentive and not too overbearing.
Bit disappointed in regards to the service at the Black Horse following are visit. Unusually under par. We were seated and not even offered water whilst we waited. We decided to skip a starter and have a desert instead and in order to void the hole asked for bread and olives. Olives were charagbel which isn’t a problem. We ordered our mains and these speedingly arrived less than five minutes later, which doesn’t set well when your food arrives that early! We also received our olives at the same time which leads me to ask, why on earth would you bring them at the same time as a Sunday roast?! As a result we weren’t able to enjoy these which we still had to pay for. I was really disappointed given the normal high standard however on Sunday it was either a case of being rushed or being forgotten, no middle ground. Quite annoyed by the hole experience especially when your spending £120 on four roasts and four deserts! Overall very poor experience guys!
As Always excellent service and tasty food
Went out with friends for dinner on Saturday evening and it was perfect. Not one thing to complain about. Everything was just right. Service was outstanding, food was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfect. Love this place.

Fabulous meal and great atmosphere, best pub around
Over priced wine whether by glass or bottle, food and service was superb and had a thouroughly lovely lunch regardless. You pay for what you get even if its a little pricey.
