Blackthorn _ left this review about Black Horse

A surprisingly large pub in the centre of the village, it looks fairly unprepossessing from the outside, but extends back a long way both inside and out.

The main drinking area is at the front of the pub and consists of an L-shaped area wrapped around the leather clad bar counter. There is smooth, very dark wood on the floor, pale cream paintwork and various photographs of pub clientele on the walls. A small brick fire-place to the right houses a wood burning stove, and a plasma in the corner was showing the football, although the volume was off so this was not too intrusive. There is a mixture of seating including a few old leather armchairs.

Beyond this the pub extends back a long way in to a restaurant area, with all tables laid up for food and bench seating with a plethora of red cushions. Outside is an attractive courtyard garden, and this too is surprisingly extensive, going on almost for ever it seems before finally tapering off to a point.

The food menu was a notch above your normal "pub grub" with the even the cheapest main course option costing over a tenner and going up to almost £20. It wasn't as extensive as some places with only six or seven main courses offered, although there were another half dozen options that could be ordered either as starters or mains and several sharing platters such as Cheese, Fish or Veggie. My Lime & Chilli Fish Cakes were decent enough, although at £11.75 you could well argue that they ought to be, despite them being the cheapest option available.

Beers were a little disappointing with just Greene King IPA and Old Golden Hen. There was also a Orange Wheat Beer. The solitary cider was Aspall's Suffolk.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Black Horse

Fairly busy on a Monday night, but I suspect that most people were there for the food rather than going out for a drink. However, the Greene King Ale Fresco provided a change from the dull IPA normally served in these parts. Interesting contrast between the modern interior and 'heritage' Woburn outside.
