This a delightful place to visit. The drinks in the bar with an open fire was great. The food in the restaurant was good and well served. There was a very good wine list. All in all we had a very enjoyable evening.

Busy pub on a Friday night with locals having a drink lovely and nice dining area and good atmosphere.

Had the braised blade of beef with goose fat roasted chateau potatoes, butternut squash puree, salt baked carrots and dark beer sauce.
Excellent and outstanding for a pub meal!!!

For dessert, the Sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream.
Very good!!1

Good Service, good food, beautiful evening in a nice environment. Liked the decoration with the hops. Cute Pub!!

Thanks to the Chef and Staff.

Went for Sunday lunch. good menu with plenty of choices. We all had something different, starters and mains. Food was delicious and well presented. The belly pork was the best I have had. Michaela the waitress was very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble but without overcrowding us. It was a nice relaxing atmosphere and we were able to take our time over the courses without feeling we had to rush. The restaurant is much bigger than you think, it has lots of intimate rooms on different levels so you don't feel like you are eating with crowds.

Went to dinner here on Christmas Eve with my husband. Lovely setting not very busy, just right really, so you would expect good service. Not the case.
The food was fine but we had to wait ages for our main meal and then they forgot the dessert menu - all in all a bit slap dash!

We thought we might have a drink in the bar afterwards but they had one lady serving .....! so we went somewhere else.

Won't rush back.

This is a slightly strange establishment. The rooms are chalet style and detached from the main ( pub) building . Whilst the setting is very english and feels very rural, the effect is a little like an American motel. The rooms are ok. They are clean and tidy, but the bathroom needed maintenance in ours. They are not numbered and are identified by rather twee names.
The Black Horse itself appears to be an ancient pub, but was in fact rebuilt in the 1980s after a devastating fire. The recreation of the old building was entirely convincing and the interior is snug and welcoming. The food was truly excellent and can be recommended without hesitation.
The Inn is hidden away from the village down a very narrow and rather hazardous lane. Beware the local drivers of SUvs who will bully you into reversing considerable distances to allow them past. It's well worth seeking out the Black Horse if you need to stay in the North Kent area. Its worth it for the food alone.

Room tip: The rooms are on a steep drive. The rooms at the far end are a longish walk from the pub itself and not recommended if it's raining!
