Went to the Black horse for a meal on Friday night. The staff went above and beyond to see to our needs. Swapping the tomatoes for onion rings - as I was being fussy for being fussy sake! Not a problem! Steak was tender, cooked to perfection! The banter and chit chat with the staff made the evening even better.... More

A Family party of 7 to dine on a Bank Holiday Monday evening - not an experience we will want to repeat in a hurry! Overall we seemed to be getting in the way of the staff's desire for a quiet evening! The restaurant was quite cold. We got our orders taken "eventually " but the general experience was pretty...

Popped in just before they stopped serving food, loved the presentation of the Smoked Haddock & Apple wood fish cakes, tasted great too. Interior looks fresh & interesting, lovely food & friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

I tend to avoid steaks in pubs. Normally over cooked and poor quality. This Ribeye could have been the best I have tasted in years (Michelin Star apart). Was really surprised at how good it was. In fact I went back last Friday and had the steak again and just as good!
