The Black Horse Pub in Foxton, in the Market Harborough region of Leicestershire is a welcoming country pub with great food, real ales and friendly atmosphere.


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 one of the bars, or dine in the fresh look restaurant.

"We had a lovely lunch on the patio in the sun, great food, well kept gardens and good value for money. Just a stone’s throw from the tow path by the canal, you can walk to Foxton Locks in 20 mins. We would definitely return."

 THE PUB boasts its customary great choices of home cooked food from new menus, served at tables both inside and outside.

A large outside Canopy covers the terrace tables, protecting you from the wind and any potential rain, and overlooks the delightful beer garden and views. And on warmer days, the garden is open for food and drink service while you enjoy the fine weather.

We consider the heart and reputation of any country pub mostly relies on:

  • The location, environment and ambience
  • The selection of quality beers and drinks
  • The quality of customer service
  • The standard and variety of food

In our opinion, The Black Horse at Foxton excels in every department as verified by numerous customer reviews, with particular reference to the quality and variety of home cooked food.


The food menus change with the seasons and have been carefully designed to ensure you can always eat well with good choices of wholesome home cooked food, and a full bar of popular drinks all served in the comfortable and friendly environment.

The Menu at The Black Horse comprises of Starters, Main courses, Children's Main or smaller adult portion courses, Snacks & Sides.
