Great to have a gluten-free menu, but suspect the waitress mixed up the gluten-free fish and chips and conventional fish and chips at the table. A real shame. Other than that, food was great, service great, lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced. Drinks were pricey, especially when prosecco was upsized without asking. Will definitely eat here again, but will be more careful re ensuring get gluten-free meal.
Nice location, good food and helpful staff.
Fabulous meal, staff very attentive without being too full on. Highly recommended
One of our party needed to eat gluten free and was delighted with the choice offered on the special menu.
Have been before and never been let down. Somewhere just that little bit special.
As always, superb food and service.
Very good meal -just a bit rich for our pallet . Tiger prawns delicious , could have been bigger . Lamb chop lot of bone too little meat . Otherwise very good Service good, one drink with coffee got forgotten . When are you ever going to something about the smell outside ... it’s horrendous .
Lovely meal, great atmosphere and service. Will see you again soon.
Came for my husbands 80th birthday with some friends. There was a personalised birthday card for him on the table. The staff all wished him a Happy Birthday and were very attentive. The food was excellent and he even had Happy Birthday written in chocolate on his dessert plate. A thoroughly lovely experience for a significant birthday celebration.
First time visiting The Black Horse. Will definitely return. Service and food was first class.
First class service & food, always a great time when booking here!
A beautiful evening in all respects, food, hospitality exceptional. Thank you, will look forward to the next time.
Very good food quality & excellent service
Your service was disjointed, we had 2 birthday cards from you, we were asked how was our food after it was served, from 3 different members of staff, then after that, it seemed to stop. Asking for our bill, the staff were more concerned with preparing the tables for breakfast. Overall great, thank you.
Terrific venue to celebrate a special occasion
Fantastic service from the beginning. Great food. Lovely evening.
Really enjoyed it. The Changling Theatre performance of Blithe Spirit was excellent, well worth going despite the torrential rain! And the lunch beforehand was lovely.
We had a fab lunch, followed by Blithe Spirit! What a lovely way to spend a Thursday. Your staff are amazing, very polite, attentive and fun, couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you
Wonderful food and service, thank you!
Fabulous food and service, as always. This is the first time for my friends and I must say you did not let me down! They were delighted with the quality and quantity of food, and friendly service. Thank you Black Horse!
Great service as always, in lovely surroundings, with good food at a sensible price
Back up to the quality of food we have always expected. 2 years ago quality dropped off. Will definitely be back more regularly
An excellent establishment, food is superb and service very friendly. Only mark down on atmosphere due to flies. They were a real pain, but the Black Horse were doing all they can to contain them.
Everything was right about the experience
