When the Black Horse Pub in Foxton, Leicestershire re-opened its doors on December 1st '18, 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 always create a warm welcome whether you have come to drink at the bar, or dine in the fresh look restaurant.
The lunch and dinner menus ensure you eat well with good choices of wholesome home cooked food, served in a comfortable and friendly environment.
Great value 'Chef's Lunches' are served daily Mon - Sat from 12.00 - 2.00pm, with a choice of 1 course at £6.95 or 2 courses for £7.95
Sunday lunch is a particular favourite served each week from 12.00- 6.00pm - an occasion to be enjoyed for all the family.
And if you like a bit of LIVE music, every 2nd Sunday of the month, you can have your lunch from 4.00pm -6.00pm and enjoy the popular acoustic sound of 'The Tributes', playing cover songs LIVE for your enjoyment.
Then there are the regular themed dinner nights, starting with:
'Burger Night Mondays', then to follow:
'Italian Night Tuesdays',
'Pie Night Wednesdays',
'Steak Night Thursdays', (a succulant 10oz rump steak for just £7.95!)
and 'Fish & Chips Fridays' (Eat in or take away!) - just £9.95

With a choice of 2 bars, you can decide whether to relax with friends in the quieter lounge bar or be more active with a game of darts etc or maybe watch a game on the big screen. And of course, during the warmer weather months, you might choose to sit out and enjoy a drink in the delightful beer garden.
And keep watchful for more occasional LIVE music nights to enhance a great social night out.
You'll find The Black Horse on Main Street in Foxton just down from St Andrews Church. An ample car park at the back of the pub provides safe parking and easy access to the pub.
