We had a 7 person family lunch at the Black Horse on Mother's Day and overall the experience was very disappointing. We were told that there would be a good selection of meals in addition to roasts, but there wasn't. Gluten-free food was only available if pre-ordered and there was only one slice of meat served with my roast. An... More

They did not all come out together... More

Arrived at 12.30,found an empty car park and then an empty pub, That should have told us something! Went to sit in the restaurant but was far too cold so settled for the bar. Ordered our drinks only to be... More

Lovely pub, great menu, you will not leave this place hungry. Really dog friendly and the staff were very helpful and chatty.I had a chicken sandwich special and could not eat it all. Lovely ciabatta bread and a plenty of filling, the dogs were happy with their takeaway.Well worth a visit.

Nice place to eat,15 of us went for couple of drinks and light food. Have not seen landlords this time, staff met us with smile, one of the most haunted pubs of the area just near St Nikolas Church!

Thank Evebus
