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 seasonal food menus ensure you always eat well with good choices of wholesome home cooked food, served in a comfortable and friendly environment.
As of January 2020, you can choose your dishes either from the main Winter Menu or from 'Dan's Daily Specials' board with a varied selection of mouth-watering additional choices to pick from each day (EXCEPT MONDAY) to really test your appetite!
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, the Foxton Folk Club will play for your entertainment every 2nd Sunday of the month, so you might have your lunch from 4.00pm -6.00pm and enjoy the music of talented musicians, LIVE for your entertainment.
QUIZ NIGHTS: SUPPORTING AIR AMBULANCE:
The ever popular Quiz Nights feature every 2nd TUESDAY OF THE MONTH at 7.30pm sharp until March! For just £4 per person (max.4/team) cash prizes are split 50-50 with the winners and Air Ambulance. So come along, join in the fun and test your general knowledge against the locals. From what I've seen so far, believe me, you've got a great chance of winning! Price includes the 'Quiz and Nibs'.
But let's talk more about the themed 'Dan's Daily Specials' - they are additional to the main menu and considered perfect for 'get togethers'.

For example, here's a 'little taster':
Wednesday Special: is 'Pie Day', homemade pie with choice of chips or mashed potato, and fresh seasonal vegetables.
Thursday Special: is 'Steak & Grill Day' - a whopping 10oz rump steak or 8oz gammon steak, served with all the trimmings - or you can choose from a variety of special burgers, Hunters Chicken or Mixed Grill. You'll have a feast!!
Friday Special: is (of course) 'Fish & Chips Day' - beer battered fish and chips with mushy peas, and you can choose to eat in or take away!
Saturday is Local's Night - Choose from the main menu, hot drink, beer or cocktail and unwind with the friendly local punters - a strange bunch who prop the bar up as if they own the place! Well, as Claire says - it's Saturday night and she's sure to bring out a few free bar snacks.
"Visited for the second time last night for their

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.
The Stables Tea Room is just next door!
