About The Black Horse

The Black Horse in the village of Fulmer is nestled between Gerrards Cross and Pinewood Studios. The 17th Century craftsman’s cottage has gradually been extended to form a charming country pub full of nooks and crannies. Under new ownership, The Black Horse has recently undergone extensive refurbishment both inside and out, creating one of the nicest pub environments in the area.

Food is our passion and we will never compromise on quality. We are proud of our seasonally changing menus, simple, yet exciting using the finest ingredients and locally sourced produce. Certain dishes have become specialities such as our sticky ribs and homemade 8oz burgers. Our beef has been aged for a minimum of 35 days and the roast beef served on Sundays is unrivalled. Crispy beer battered fish and specials such as sea bass, turbot and whole lobster, is caught in the morning and delivered fresh to us on the same day.

Dinner with friends. Great food and wine. Service very attentive. Busy night with several Christmas tables so the ambience was a bit noisy but we didn't mind too much. Staff explained timings with food as they were serving large groups at same time...explanation always alleviate any annoyance with waiting so well done for that. Table also right next to corridor to toilets and kitchen so not the nicest spot in the restaurant. Manager was lovely. Not been for a while but would go again in a heartbeat.

We arrived late due to the snow, but rang ahead and told no problem. Staff were friendly and welcoming, although we had to chase them to take our initial order. Food was delicious and good portions.

A very agreeable lunch with friends in an attractive ambience. The young staff were very attentive and the food was fine though perhaps a little on the bland side for me (venison cottage pie). Portions on the small side.

Good food apart from the al dente vegetables. The carrots and cauliflower were actually hard. All four of us and our friends don't like our vegetables not cooked. Why do restaurants do this? Two of the puddings were not very hot but still tasted nice. Full marks to the staff who were lovely.

Disappointing experience overall. Chaotic, disorganised & astonishingly slow despite not being busy. The staff seemed to be doing their best without much guidance. I would hesitate to recommend it to a friend for fear that they had the same experience but perhaps it was just a bad day.

 (Bath)·Dined on July 8, 2017

Great food - generous portions, well cooked and seasoned. We particularly enjoyed watching the chef come into the beer garden to pick some herbs before returning to the kitchen! As non-smokers, we also loved that the patio has been designated a non-smoking area (smoking is permitted on the picnic benches on the grass) so for the first time in years we could have a meal al fresco with genuinely fresh air!

 (Dorset)·Dined on June 25, 2017

This was not my first visit here and I am glad it wasn't. The service was slow, the wine I ordered didn't arrive and the food was considerably below what we have come to expect. This was the first time we had been for a Sunday lunch and was very disappointed. The meat and vegetables tasted like they had been kept (barely) warm in the kitchen and was served with instant gravey. We didn't bother with desert as we couldn't wait to leave.
Normally the food here is excellent and if I came again on a Sunday I would order from the main menu.
Please try the food here, just not on a Sunday

Poor experience on Fathers Day :-(
We booked a table for 4 to celebrate Fathers Day, after a poor start - beer off, we placed our food order. We had to chase several times, only to be put in our place by a waitress with zero customer service skills. We finally received our food just before 2pm, almost 2hrs after booking, kids were starving, upset and tired and one was then served with sausage and mash with just one sausage! For £7....
I would expect a restaurant like this to be able to cope with busy times and prioritise booked tables over walk ins. Manager did apologise and made a gesture with the bill but sadly we won't be back.

We came here for Easter Sunday lunch with our son and daughter in law. The food was interesting and very well prepared. A popular local Pub/dining rooms, we ate at 2.30 and it would appear that the kitchen was open all day. Very good for the area.

A pleasant evening but it is expensive. £4.75 for a pint of Diet Coke is ridiculous. Steaks were £28.50. The rib eye looks good but I plumped for fillet which, by comparison, looked very small though was supposed to be only 2 oz smaller - so go for the rib eye.
Girls had mezze sharing board to start. Again expensive for what it was but enjoyable for that. I had ham hock terrine to start which was superb.
Waitress was very friendly.
We will return.

The first time we have tried this for Sunday lunch - it's a weekday favourite. Menu predictable - choice of roasts with some alternatives - but good quality and enjoyable atmosphere. Not sue why they only offer skinny chips rather than their excellent triple cooked chips on this limited menu, though!
