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.

    Second Try

  • (((** 16 May 2017 by Penny Richardson from Brentwood

    Our initial waitress was very helpful and our main courses were delicious but as it got busier there were insufficient staff to cater for all the diners and service was slower for our sweets. We had already finished our teas and coffees and had to chase up our puddings. Our waitress went elsewhere although we appreciate the restaurant was busy we were not happy waiting without explanation. Once reminded the sweets arrived but not piping hot like normal.

  • (((** 8 April 2017 by Susan Long from Brentwood

    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.

    One of the nicest evenings I have had in a while Charlett made our evening

  • ((*** 3 April 2017 by Di Futcher from Brentwood

    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.
