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 Pilgrims Hatch is a 7-minute drive away from Weald Country Park, and a 5-minute drive from Brentwood High Street.

    Beautiful restaurant, lovely atmosphere, excellent food and very reasonably priced. Only disappointment the waitress was very abrupt and rude and this needs to be addressed.

    Quick service, but the waitress had long pink false nails which was a bit off putting, I was hoping I didn't find one in my food. The food is ok but nothing special. The apple pie isn't pie, it has no pastry, it's covered in what seems like cake. I ordered another drink which didn't come. It was ok for an average meal and convenient place to meet up with friends but none of the dishes we ordered were particularly great.

    It was a brilliant meal. The starter sharer, glazer I think, was fantastic. Main course brilliant. Carrot cake cheesecake was delicious. Our waitress was the best waitress I've known in years. Very very cheerful, very natural. A top evening. A top meal. Top service. Thank you.

    Back in February there was a large party of us celebrating a friends 60th birthday the service and food was fantastic
    Yesterday Sunday 12th was complete different story.
    There were 9 of us plus a baby. We wasn't properly greeted as we arrived or shown to our table....just pointed to the direction of it. I appreciate it was busy but The food was not the usual standard. The waitress service was dreadful we had long waits for everything and she kept bending/pushing between two people to place things on table without saying excuse me.
    So rude.

    The food was a very low standard.My steak was very gristly and very hard to chew my guests
    Two had Hunters chicken which they found very bland. Two had lamb shanks which were
    Very small and low on meat.The only good thing was the coffee.All in all a bad evening.
