The experience was perfect from beginning to end. It is our favourite restaurant for service and for feeling valued. The food is consistently very good with plenty of choice.

We are moving to the area soon, so we decided to try a different pub in or around Sellindge every other week. Today 4/5/2017 the Black Horse was on the list. We drove up from Ashford and came down some lovely country lanes through the back-roads of Monks Horton to finally reach the Black Horse (there are easier ways to... More

We eat here pretty regularly. There are lots of good pubs for food around here, but this is about the best. Italian cuisine, but with lots of additions, such as pheasant when it is in season. And the service is so welcoming it feels like coming home. Worth visiting just for the view.

Not many options when having a carvery. Me and my partner both got the gammon, we had to leave most of it as most of it was fat. Have to admit the amount of meats they have on offer were excellent but I was completely dissatisfied with the amount of extras compared to other restaurants I have been to for... More

Great service, lovely food. Well priced food and drink. The duck was cooked very well. Large portions. Outstanding building and location with a good garden for the kids to play in.

Have just got back from a very good Sunday lunch at the Black Horse. It is the first time I have been there and consider it a "find", though clearly it is very popular and I can see why. The welcome was very cheery and the Italian owner could not have been friendlier. We were going to have a starter... More

Lovely ambience , staff very friendly , Italian food excellent , just watch when offered anything , you pay for the lot including vegetables , where normally they are included. Worth a visit if you like good home cooked Italian dishes .

Went in a party of 6 for a lunch mid week. Starters a bit overpriced for what you got. I chose belly pork from the Specials board. Loads of vegetables supplied for the table. Best belly pork I have had. Dessert choice was vast - had a mixture of 2 as could not decide. Drinks reasonably priced compared to many... More

Went here for a roast with the family today based on trip advisor reviews, well really wished I hadn't staff didn't let us sit down before wanting our drinks order, starters are £7:99 each! Roast was the worst I've ever had out and my family and I eat out at least twice a week, they serve all the food including... More
