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.

    Great dining experience. Great food (fish & chips and the steak and chicken pies), followed by the rhubarb crumble and liqueur coffees with mini choc cake. All scrummy! Atmosphere and whole experience was excellent. The waitress Catherine, was very friendly, courteous and efficient.

    Service very good, though restaurant was very quiet. Ordered Wagyu burger for main course, very disappointed to be see it served in ciabatta bread, not burger bap. When I questioned the waitress, she said 'oh yeah sorry, we haven't got any'! Would have been nice to be told at time of order, rather than hoping to 'get away with it". Expected a £14 burger to at least be served properly. The three of us had three courses, which were ok, but no more than that. May have been better if busy?

    Seems to have gone down in quality these past few months.
    The roast beef is of poor quality and is grisly and tough and veg selection i is lacklustre.Also meals have come out lukewarm.sorry about this but in the past we have always loved a Sunday Roast so we feel a bit let down.
