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.

Picked 3 courses from the set menu and the food was absolutely fantastic. Also enjoyed some unusual ales at £3.80 a pint, which felt extremely good value. Also everything felt very safe, with all the Covid measures felt well thought out. Thank you for a great evening.

A great meal out with the family. We were looked after very well by the staff, who were happy to help with the children's requirements.

The Cote de boeuf was excellent; cooked to perfection and just the right size for two people.

We went at lunchtime on a Saturday expecting it to be quite busy, however there was only one other table being used so very quiet. Service was ok but we had to ask for the wine menu and we weren’t offered a dessert menu or coffee. The food itself was good, very tasty.
