We visited The Black Horse Inn at the very beginning of July. It was our first trip away since the covid 19 lockdown, and the first week the hotel and restaurant opened since march too. I couldn't really fault our visit at all. Obviously, with social distancing and other measures in place, things are slightly different. What I really liked though, was how natural they made it feel. Nothing was too over the top / in your face, it was a very relaxing environment and I felt incredibly comfortable. So well done on that front.
After reading through many reviews before we booked, it was mentioned that the Shergar room was one of the best. So I requested this room. It was lovely, tucked away, with your own little garden. Nice and large room. Lovely furniture. Bathroom was lovely. Excellent shower plus the added benefit of a roll top bath too, which is wonderfully relaxing with a glass of prosecco. I love small independent places where each room is different and has its own character with little nick-nacks dotted around. It's a little gem of a place. My only critical point to make is the fridge. It's awful. Really out of place in the room. It's loud. Unsightly and ruins the look and feel of the room. It needs housing in its own cupboard or get rid! Other than that. A faultless room.
We had dinner in the restaurant, food was outstanding and would recommend anyone to eat there whether you are staying or not.
Breakfast was brilliant, home made secret recipe black puding was amazing!!
Would highly recommend to anyone, and we would love to return again too. Thank you to Steven and Rosie for making our short stay so lovely, and making us feel so welcomed. less
