Recently reopened under the care of Marc and Carol, The Black Horse has rapidly become a place in which the area’s foodies can enjoy hearty, traditional fare. I elected to start with crispy beer-battered king prawns and cucumber drizzled with a chilli sauce, while my companion devoured creamy mushrooms in a wine and wild garlic sauce served atop ciabatta. For the main course, I sampled hunter’s chicken and found it superbly juicy; the chicken breast was wrapped in bacon, topped with barbecue sauce and gooey melted cheese, and served with creamy mashed potato and spring vegetables. My companion’s sweet chilli chicken salad was beautifully presented and came with crisp skinny fries. This up-and-coming venue also has an excellent gluten-free menu, so there’s something for everyone. To accompany our meal we enjoyed a pink gin and tonic, perfectly chilled with frozen berries, and a refreshing pint of Swordfish ale. We completed our visit with a classic sticky toffee pudding with custard and a refreshing, creamy lemon posset.

The newly refurbished interior combines the traditional features of a cosy inn with a sophisticated modern atmosphere. The bar and dining areas seamlessly blend into one another, and you can dine in the outdoor patio area where there’s plenty of space for children to play. This family-friendly venue also offers smaller portions and childfriendly dishes to encourage little ones to dine.
