The garden is roomy, and with a good atmosphere. Service was prompt, polite and friendly. The menu choices are not too numerous, and we were very satified with our choices of wild mushroom tart, and fish and chips which my husband claimed were the best he had had for several years. Overall this was a very good experience.

Very warm
Welcome into this lovely little pub, we had the Sunday roast which was lovely although I am not a fan of roasted peppers and onions , much prefer traditional veggies like broccoli, parsnips, but that is just personal preference.
Service was very good from a lovely lady.
My only criticism is that they do need some fly deterrents in the garden, either flytraps of citronella candles would help.
Overall nice village pub with very friendly staff

Friendly staff , fantastic food , spotlessly clean , warm and cosy with log fire . Ordered duck and it was very tender and delicious, mash was silky smooth. if had to make a tiny criticism I would have liked more vegetables served with dishes Partner had steak which he said was excellent and best he had for many a year. Desserts were yummy . Will definitely be back

The Black Horse was recommended by my parents who live in Willingham. I thought the Sunday roast was very well cooked of a good size an served quickly. The desert was scrummy too :-) The beef and pork were both of a high quality and very tasty.

I thought the meal was good value and would recommend this to anyone

Given the restrictions of Covid the pub did a decent job. However the limited choice of menu was not fully available even at 7.0pm, and the second choice dish was warm rather than hot.
