    Brilliant place to eat. Would be perfect in the summer as there is a lovely canal with boats etc.

    Thoroughly recommend this venue. I cannot fault anything other than the weather, which is beyond anyones control!! The food, service and ambience were all perfect. The garden is beautiful also, so hopefully we shall visit again on a sunny day. I’d say that this is one of the top pubs in MK. If you haven’t been, definitely venture out.

    As ever, the Black Horse came up trumps. A wonderful experience for the friend I took this time. And thankfully the weather was lovely so that we could sit outside, have a drink and wave at the long-boats going by. The only disappointment in an otherwise perfect meal was the minuscule piece of crackling I was served - barely visible. I ordered the pork roast because I love crackling and this needs to change. I would recommend the Black Horse without hesitation.

    I've been going to the Black Horse since I was 8. Now 53!! I've seen many changes to the place. Always tend to come here to meet family when I'm back M.K. The food is lovely. The setting is beautiful and the staff are well trained and very friendly. So glad they went back to calling it the Black Horse. Never understood why they want to change the name. Here's to many more visits .

    We've not been to The Black Horse in ten years, it's been completely overhauled and looks fantastic now. The staff are friendly and the service was excellent. The food was absolutely delicious, and the portions were just the right size. Every one of us had a lovely meal. We'll definitely return very soon! I think we just found our new favourite restaurant in sweet, sweet MK!

    Ordered in advance of arriving as we were on a tight Xmas lunch break. Food still took an age to arrive and confusion over what had been ordered . Shame because the venue is nice !

    Good menu choice, nice atmosphere, lots of differant dining areas. Pleasant staff. Only downside was long wait for food. Went on busy Friday evening and place was very full. Good canal side location, lots of outside tables if weather is appropriate.

    This is a great find. A foodie pub with plenty of outdoor seating in a series of small garden areas like rooms. With attractive blue painted tables and benches. My daughter had recommended the great food and location so I booked for a Sunday visit with my son and my lively 2 year old grand son . We throughly enjoyed our visit. You order in the bar and your meal is delivered to your table number. A good choice of dishes for most tastes and price ranges. We had friendly neighbours with three sweet dogs who entertained our baby and the whole atmosphere was relaxing. Meal was great and I have already recommended it to friends . Interior of the pub was very attractive too.
