When the Black Horse Pub in Foxton, Leicestershire re-opened its doors back in December 2018, the local community had their country pub back after a long absence with new dedicated owners, new decor, new beers and wines, quality dining and a great new atmosphere.
Claire and Daniel Bryers know how to run a good pub and with their past experience, they were always going to create a warm welcome whether you were to drink at the bar, or dine in the fresh look restaurant.
The Covid-19 pandemic government restrictions have of course challenged the hospitality industry, especially during the recent complete lockdown. During these difficult times, The Black Horse exceeded all expectations by still 'looking after' its local resident community by offering the same high standards of takeaway complete meals for collection or a FREE delivery service to your door.
UPDATE APRIL 12th 2021 - THE PUB HAS NOW RE-OPENED (albeit Outside/Garden Service Only until May 17th), with a good choices new Outside Service Menu for April & May, expected to be updated again from May 17th.
However, the Black Horse is STILL operating the popular additional TAKEAWAY and DELIVERY SERVICE.
