Whilst visiting Cirencester we popped in to The Black Horse for a bite of lunch. The place was warm and welcoming there was plenty of seating and quite a few people enjoying the place.

We called in for lunch whilst on a coach trip to the area. Short of time, so this was the first place we saw. The menu was the normal fare, nothing exciting. I chose to have the 3 small dishes for £10, as I rarely eat bread, or a big meal, so ideal I thought, as I could just pick... More

Staff were excellent and the food was very good. The "two for one" menu had a good choice and the meals would have been good value if bought singularly.We... More

I ordered the hunters chicken plus extra side salad, my husband had fish and chips. Both meals were lovely (except for the lettuce which looked quite tired). We then had to wait for ages and ages for the pudding, apple pie and custard, we asked 3 times - where is it? to be told that it was on its way.... More
