Located on the edge of the village green in the picture-perfect village of Grimston, this delightful 16th-century pub guarantees a warm welcome. The Black Horse is a quintessential village pub in every way, serving great food and traditional beer, including guest ales. The menu offers attractively priced traditional pub food that’s made using locally sourced ingredients to ensure freshness and flavour.
My winter vegetable soup, served with warm ciabatta, was smooth, rich and satisfying. My companion savoured his choice of flavoursome mushrooms baked with Port and Stilton and served with garlic bread. I chose a locally sourced sirloin steak for my main course , which was beautifully presented with grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and buttery new potatoes, and accompanied by a crisp, fresh salad. My companion opted for the game pie from the specials board and enthused over the chunks of tender meat in rich gravy and the melt-in-the-mouth shortcrust pastry.
Unable to resist dessert, my companion declared that his strawberry jam sponge with hot, creamy custard was a triumph. I plumped for a Baileys hot chocolate from the specials board, which was served in a tall glass and topped with a generous helping of cream – a devilishly sweet conclusion to a memorable meal.
