i have been a customer at this lovely restaurant for over 15 years and never been disappointed, however on this occasion for my birthday meal the food quality and presentation was below the normal standard for our table of 7 adults.
Our first visit to The Black Horse at Ireland, we will definitely be back! Fantastic food and service, warm and welcoming staff, they even gave my hubbie a birthday card - really nice touch! Only disappointment was that they run out of vanilla and then pistachio ice cream but the apple & cherry crumble was still to die for!
Sunday lunch excellent staff very accommodating Definitely can’t wait to go back
Fabulous food, fabulous choice for gluten free main meals (a little disappointing on the sweets especially as one of the two had run out), polite staff but slow service, sweets took over 30 mins to arrive. Still one of our fav places to eat though.
Excellent food as always for Sunday lunch, service always excellent too.
One of my Favourite places to eat out. Always perfect and the team Great as ever. Wine and Champagne list great. Will return soon
fabulous fish and chips really enjoyed our lunch will certainly book again.
Excellent food and friendly staff
The atmosphere was great. My food was good, although could have done with more veggies with my main which at £21.95 was pricey. Wine was very pricey too. Waiting staff were too eager to clear our plates and we felt rushed. Then told the coffee machine e was being shut down and we needed to hurry. This was just before 11pm, and there were still plenty of customers. So overall we felt rushed. It could have been a better experience.
Wonderful as always.
Had a very pleasant evening at the Black Horse. Food, service was great, couldn’t fault.
We always go to the Black Horse for a special meal with friends. I love the decoration and ambiance. The food wasn’t the best we have had, with over salted fish cakes and a dry burger. The steak which I had was really delicious and cooked just the way I like it. We will go back because the staff are very professional and attentive.
So much better than just a great pub with fabulous food, the menu is locally sourced and seasonal and the wine list has lots of choices by the glass. Plus they do soufflé for dessert ! Fabulous !
Food was good but my chicken Kiev more more a fried piece of chicken as no runny garlic butter inside. Glad I ordered greens as meal needed it however did make it an expensive mains . Would prefer slightly cheaper meals with no bread beforehand
A great place to dine with friends & family
Lovely lunch and excellent service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Black Horse and thank the staff for their attentive service throughout the evening.

Very quiet, some staff not very attentive. Shame as previous visits have been spot on.
