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.

The Black Horse in Buckinghamshire is a 6-minute drive from Wolverton Rail Station.

    This was my first visit for many years.
    The restaurant was very welcoming, cosy and friendly. The menu was quite extensive and our meal served quickly by very attentive staff.
    The food was excellent and we shall certainly be coming back again.

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

    Good food. Tho lamb was very fatty and hard to cut even with a steak knife. Table not very comfortable for my husband who was in a wheelchair.

    well served, everything well timed etc.

    Always a pleasure to dine at the Black Horse, Milton Keynes. Lovely food and 1st class service from a lovely, attentive waitress

    I had the 'Sticky Chicken'. Some interesting and unusual things added to the dish. It was quite nice with a bit of a kick from the chilli. However, I felt the chicken was overcooked. It was tough and the well worn dining knife I had didn't cope well with it. I had to shred it with my fork.
    My husband had the alleged 28 day hung rump steak. He ordered it medium rare, but, it was rare to blue. Also, I doubt very much that meat had been hung for 28 days, it was too 'fresh' looking.
    There was nothing on the desert menu that grabbed our fancy, which was a shame because we love our deserts, and it was our Anniversary dinner, so a bit disappointed.
    The service was okay, for a busy Friday night and at least we were seated away from screaming kids.
