Went with friends, met with a nice friendly warm welcome. Good choice of Italian food, freshly cooked. Mushroom starter was excellent followed by amazing mains and then of course dessert! Reasonably priced, will definitely return.

Meal was very good. Pudding trolley of doom was also delicious. Atmosphere and the welcome were great. Really enjoyed another visit to The Black Horse and it is certainly somewhere I would recommend for a birthday meal, family meal or celebration drink or two!
