We arrived last Tuesday evening following a long drive South, I had phoned ahead to check we could park our van overnight (Brit Stops). A cheery welcome from the young lad behind the bar, a quality pint of Old Horse ale was soon accompanied by possibly the best meal in a pub we have had in many years, delicious and... More

Stayed here using Brit Stop last night even though it is on our door step. We needed somewhere quiet and away from the city fireworks and this place was just the place. Quiet village just outside Salisbury in the Woodford Valley. Home made food and a selection of real ales, well kept, made this a fantastic night. Thank you for... More

The Black Horse is owned by the lovely Mark and Suzie and is always a joy to visit. The home-made food can't be beaten in the area and the atmosphere is always warm and welcoming. There is a great range of beers and wines, and they make excellent coffee! Whether you're with your family, friends for a meal or just... More

The landlord and landlady were really friendly and welcoming and the food was great at a good price. They were happy to adapt a dish... More

Great atmosphere with tasty foot and friendly people! We love their burgers - both the beef and Cajun chicken, and the chips are great!

We arrived at 7pm and there was a very relaxed atmosphere with families enjoying the outside area and a few people drinking at the bar. We ordered the pie blackboard special - it did take 45 minutes to come - suspect it was freshly cooked but even so took rather a long time to arrive though in all fairness there... More

Booking that day we took a pretty drive up the valley from Salisbury. We walked through a beamed bar area buzzing with lively conversation. Cheery welcome from barman who served us drinks and pointed us to our table. It was next to an inglenook fireplace in a little room with a half wall and beams between it and the bar.... More
