Off the beaten track, The Black Horse Brentwood serves time-honoured favourites and pub classics from a hearty British menu. Framed by a white-picket fence and black and white timber, the dining room is kept warm by a host of open fireplaces, and features studded leather banquettes, chunky oak beams and a pretty courtyard for al fresco dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Black Horse menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Black Horse ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Black Horse in Essex is a 7-minute drive away from Weald Country Park, and a 5-minute drive from Brentwood High Street.

    Very relaxed, attractive venue. My food was good though my two friends had the prawn and avocado starter which they both said was pretty watery and tasteless. Overall a lovely time was had by all!

    Very good food, and good portion size, had a roast sharing platter, only 1 little critic we would of preferred gravy in a jug instead of on the sharing plate, we couldn't spoon it onto our own plates. Great range of desserts, our choices were delicious. Very good service from waiting staff.
