The perfect pub for a relaxed Sunday lunch. Delicious food (catering for an awkward vegetarian allergic to nuts!) and for my meat eating companions, loads of gravy which doesn’t happen anywhere else.

An amazing Sunday roast, fantastic value and the size and variety of accompanying veg etc was incredible. Very friendly service. Only slight downside was tables close together but once settled this did not distract from a lovely lunching experience.

Had a fabulous time at The Black Horse.. As always!! The service was impeccable.. friendly and efficient and always a smile! The food was incredible. Sunday roasts are definitely the best I have tasted. One rolled shoulder of Lamb for my partner.. and I was persuaded to try the Vegetarian option of the Veggie Wellington.. Goats cheese, mushrooms, Butternut squash and spinach topped with pastry.It was amazing. The choice of food is great and such good value. What added to our enjoyment was the atmosphere. All the customers were very happy, a nice buzz as we all enjoyed the football! Thank you Paul, Declan and staff for all you do. Will be back soon.

The Black Horse is a wonderful traditional pub with a great atmosphere. The staff are excellent and very helpful and help create a very welcoming environment. The food is outstanding. With my two sons we had a few starters and mains which were excellent, the flavour and taste of the food was wonderful and the array of dips that accompany the food were also magnificent. We had a wonderful afternoon and look forward to returning soon.
