Restaurant description

A rustic waterside village pub with a decked terrace for al fresco dining, The Black Horse – Milton Keynes serves a menu of simple but wholesome British pub food. With cushioned seats, red walls & windows overlooking the Grand Union Canal, this pub is a country-style retreat in the historic village of Great Lindford.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Black Horse menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Black Horse – Milton Keynes cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

    Great food overall, although tempora mushrooms to start, too much and batter too heavy. Lovely staff and good service.

    Absolutely excellent every time we visit and this time was no different. We both went for the Sunday Roast and it did not disappoint. Staff are always so happy and friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

    Easy to book table. Extremely warm welcome on arrival & excellent service from all the staff throughout. Sharing Camembert starter was delicious & all main meals - 2 roasts, 2 dirty burgers & a child’s mac n cheese - were delicious. Had a lovely meal & would definitely be back soon.

    Good relaxed atmosphere with interesting menu choices. Staff were attentive but not overly pushy. We had an enjoyable evening meeting old friends.
