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.
But then, after an increasingly successful 2019, COVID happened!
The Covid-19 pandemic government restrictions of course challenged the hospitality industry more than most others, but 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 JULY 2021
THE PUB IS NOW FULLY OPEN AGAIN with their customary great choices of home cooked food from new menus, served at tables both inside and outside.
A new 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.

"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
Regular LIVE MUSIC and other popular entertainment is currently still 'on hold' to comply with government legislation, but the Foxton Folk Club, other acts and quizzes will be back as soon as it is considered safe, so please 'watch this space' and the Black Horse website for updates.

We highly recommend a visit to The Black Horse Pub at Foxton, especially if you're not familiar with the area.
You'll find it 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.
