Popped in after shopping in Exeter as its so close to Cranbrook. Two of us were greeted by smiling, friendly staff and were seated quickly. This pub was refurbished sometime last year and the surroundings are just wonderful. There is an open kitchen so you can see your food being cooked and as a mum I noted that the staff... More

Came to try this place to celebrate a birthday. The Sunday lunch was very good value and looked amazing. Between 5 of us we ordered the Beef and Pulled Pork, both of which were cooked very well. The trimmings were of good quality too especially the Yorkshire puds; very light and crispy and HUGE! At £10.95 a head we thought... More

Lady who attended to us was magnificent. Very attentive service, and very helpful on GF options. Ordered two sharing platters one GF and the fish platter. Very tasty... More

Having visited the Black Horse on 5 or 6 occasions with family and friends since the reopening, we chose to book a special post Christmas lunch for 28th December with 3 generations of our family having not been able to be together in this country over Christmas. We were all eagerly looking forward to the occasion, especially the elderly grandparents... More

Spontaneous lunch that did not go well. Arrived as the doors opened at 12pm. Drinks and order placed within 10 mins. Starter took 20 minutes to arrive and most of it was cold (A fish platter). Mains not delivered until 1:10pm. Way too slow. Granted the manager did acknowledge the delay when we settled the bill, but that was somewhat... More

After undertaking a huge refurbishment, it was a delightful experience to witness the new look. For me, this place is worthy of a visit.

Evening visit to the Black Horse with colleagues from work and partners and it was a great. Lovely welcome by the hosts and very glad to find a really good selection of real ales, wines and other drinks. The planned and pre-ordered menu was excellent and, whilst I had beef as a main course I would have been equally satisfied... More
