Gastro Pub
The Black Horse in the village of Fulmer is nestled between Gerrards Cross and Pinewood Studios. The 17th Century craftsman’s cottage has gradually been extended to form a charming country pub full of nooks and crannies. Under new ownership, The Black Horse has recently undergone extensive refurbishment both inside and out, creating one of the nicest pub environments in the area.

Food is our passion and we will never compromise on quality. We are proud of our seasonally changing menus, simple, yet exciting using the finest ingredients and locally sourced produce. Certain dishes have become specialities such as our sticky ribs and homemade 8oz burgers. Our beef has been aged for a minimum of 35 days and the roast beef served on Sundays is unrivalled. Crispy beer battered fish and specials such as sea bass, turbot and whole lobster, is caught in the morning and delivered fresh to us on the same day.

    Food and service excellent although drinks and food over priced. Perhaps this was why there were only 9 people in restaurant.

    We had the Sunday Roast Chicken It was absolutely delicious. Lots of vegetables and really liked the leeks au gratin. This was a last minute decision to pop down to the Black Horse and we were very glad we did.

    First time dining and thoroughly impressed and we will be back. Have driven past the Black Horse a few times now and thought it looked nice and worth a visit and I must say it did not disappoint. The week before we visited the farm shop and had coffee and cake in the cafe which was lovely and the main pub is just as good. 3 of us for Sunday lunch and all had something different for all courses and it was all superb.

    The waitress wasn’t very helpful for my friend who was a vegan and had to ask another waitress for some advice on what vegan friendly alternative foods she could have. The Caesar salad I ordered was missing the Parmesan cheese, despite the waiter checking twice that there should be cheese with the salad. The salad dressing tasted bland as well. For the price you pay for a salad it was not worth it. Usually the black horse provide excellent food so it was just disappointing to receive below par service across the board for a Christmas Eve dinner.

    The food was delicious when it arrived but it took 50 minutes from when we ordered to get it. Our drinks which we ordered before the food took even longer - two of them arrived after the food despite following up twice. We decided to risk ordering dessert but that was a mistake. 30 minutes after we ordered we were told they had run out of the ice creams we had ordered. By this point we gave up and cancelled the rest of the desserts we'd ordered, who knows how long we'd have been waiting to get them!

    The food was really good, however we booked a table at 6:30pm. One of our friends was 10 minutes late so got there at 6:40pm. It then took 20 minutes for someone to take our order (there was only us and another table who were already eating). When our order was taken at 7pm the girl came back out and said that the kitchen shut at 7pm and as it’s 7:05 they will have to bring our starters out with our mains. Why would we not have been told this when booking or when we got there. And why did it take them 20 minutes to get our order when they knew the kitchen was closing soon. We then had to rush eating our starters so our mains didn’t get cold. It’s a shame because the food was very good. I wound come again, just not on a Sunday

    Despite reading the mixed reviews we decide to give this a go. Unfortunately our experience wasnt brilliant. Very slow service. Waited 40 minutes before even receiving ordered drinks. Even longer for the starters. One family left disgruntled at the noise and complete lack of service and I heard the manager say to them "please leave" in a dismissive unprofessional manner. Shocking! What was very clear, is the lack of training and professionalism demonstrated by the staff. The drinks are very expensive. The food tasted okay but is still on the pricey side for what you get. Thankfully we had some service from a very pleasant waiter who despite his lack of training had a much more 'Can do' helpful attitude. Without this I was ready to have the service charge removed from the bill. I have also seen TripAdvisor reviews claiming that the owners pocket half the service charge.... Tread carefully

    Excellent food and service. Only gripe is that I have a pet hate of service charge being included in the bill - I will always tip for good service but object to having a 12.5% service charge automatically added.

    Sadly today, Sunday dinner, was extremely disappointing. We had a reservation and advised , by phone, no roast potatoes. Accepted that, but when we arrived and placed order, no beef or cauliflower cheese. The lamb, which we chose, was tough and unappetising, vegetables were fine. The service was slow and the young waiters, were not observant to customers needs. Though we received a verbal apology, an expensive, poor Sunday roast dinner.

    Fish (and chips) smelled badly off and was returned. Fresh replacement offered but we declined. Crispy beef salad was far, far too sweet and sickly for a starter; sadly quite unpleasant. Bar area smelt of cigarettes; service was lacklustre. Waiter came back to confirm order 3 times - my guest ordered jackfruit salad starter, after 10m was told it was not available so he ordered just a side-salad as a starter. After another 20m side salad was served… and the jackfruit salad too! Overall a disappointing experience after a history of many good visits.

    First time I have eaten there for many years . Service was very attentive & the food excellant I had the 2 course special offer , the starter was four large cheasy chicken wings which were so generous I shared with my partner . The the main course was a hearty lamb stew with mash , looked and tasted delicious . Finally a half share in my partner''s Eaton Mess . A very fulfilling meal . Pricewise , a little expensive for a pensioner , but where isn't these days ? Will I visit again , most certainly , maybe not every week , but as often as possible

    The shared mezza for three of us had four small pieces of bread only - not enough When ordering the sirloin I was not asked if I would like it pink or well done but when the well done arrived and I asked for pink this was brought and looked good. However, it was tender but tasteless. I left about a third of the meat portion. The beef in the mixed roast was dry and curled and my guest said it looked like it had been under the heating lamp too long so he left that part of the meal. We passed these remarks onto a very pleasant waitress after paying and she did offer us a drink but we had already had our post meal drinks. The chicken meal was good and enjoyed by the third member of our party.
