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 this year have of course challenged the hospitality industry to meet all safety requirements while maintaining the high quality standards of food and service. We have found The Black Horse not only meets these standards but exceeds them to re-assure their customers of an all round positive and safe experience.
"Went to the Black Horse for drinks with friends. Had a fantastic evening sitting outside with great views. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. They have put in place good Covid security measures. It’s a lovely pub with a warm and friendly atmosphere in a beautiful village." Charlotte C - Sept'20
New Delivery Services:
While normal opening hours are currently revised (see updates below), the owners have added additional services to help their loyal customers - eg local daily deliveries from the menu, in particular for self isolating customers but also for people's convenience.
And, you can now order your fresh vegetables from the pub and if you order by 11am on Tuesday, you can have them delivered to your door on Wednesday mornings. Or if more convenient, you can collect them yourself from the pub Wednesday evenings!
You can even have 'TakeAway Hoppers' delivered - a selection of beers sold in 2 pint hoppers.
The new food menus are carefully designed to ensure you always eat well with good choices of wholesome home cooked food, and a full bar of popular drinks all served in a comfortable and friendly environment.
You can see and download the new Autumn 2020 Menus here:
Sunday lunch is a particular favourite, served each week from 12.00- 5.00pm - an occasion to be enjoyed for all the family.
LIVE music and other popular entertainment is currently 'on hold' to comply with government legislation, but the Foxton Folk Club, other acts and quizzes will be back as soon as restrictions are lifted, so please 'watch this space' and the Black Horse website for updates.
"Fantastic service and a very warm welcome. We had Sunday lunch today and the food was delicious. We’d definitely come back again." Rob F - Sept'20
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.
Please note the adjoining 'Stables Tea Room' is currently closed but hopefully will re-open in the Spring 2021

We go to the Black Horse regularly. The service is unfailingly helpful, polite and friendly. The food is extremely delicious, plentiful and good value. The beers are very well kept. The garden is excellent...

Dropped in on Bank Holiday Monday on the off chance of getting a table. Although they were very busy they found us a table. Sunday lunch was perfect 👌. Staff were very friendly and couldn't have made us...
Love this place, such a great atmosphere and asset to Foxton and its community. Claire and Dan have done a great job bringing the pub back to life.
