Came in for a coffee and a sandwich. Coffee was excellent, very smooth with a great flavour. I had a steak, goats cheese and caramelised red onion sandwich which was again excellent and an extremely generous portion. My partner had a mackerel and beetroot sandwich. Friendly service and reasonable price.

First visit since the refurbishment and was very impressed. Greeted by the barman with a smile and "how is your weekend so far?" Was a nice change from many bars where you barely get a hello. Food was excellent. Four different meals all arrived together. They deserve to do well. The owner or landlord obviously works very hard to keep... More

It was a Monday evening and it was very quiet in the venue with less than 5 tables being occupied. Staff were friendly and helpful although lacked class and style. The menu was varied and provided choice however there were no specials and nothing that grabbed me immediately to want to eat. When all the food arrived it was fresh... More

It was a good meal I only had a cheese and bacon burger £11 which is enough for a burger but it was nice . The group of 12 all said there food was good .Some had dessert not a great choice but something that most people would like. I would go back it was very nice .

Had a very good night at this pub but on arrival we were told they were closing at 12 midnight, so we booked a taxi to leave at 12.20. At 11.20 we were told we could only buy drinks if we paid a premium and bought a minimum of 24 drinks. The response to our complaint about being misled fell... More

After the recent refurbishment, myself and two friends really wanted to give The Black Horse Inn ago, the new decor looks impressive, very homely and warm. The waitresses were polite, professional and welcoming, our particular waitress did make and error with our order and nearly dropped the bottle of wine but this is more due to lack of experience I...
