    We've been customers for 35 years. Still love the place but too frequently, meals are served after overly long delays and are often not hot.
    I'd also like to see pastas and other dishes offered with sauces other than cream sauce. It is used with entrees far too consistently.
    Response from The Black Horse Tavern & Pub
    Thank you for your honest review. We did just add a Chicken Rigatoni and a Buckwheat Gnocchi to the Tavern’s menu. We will pass along your feedback to the general manager and the kitchen to prevent these issues from happening again. See you soon!

    My family and I LOVED the brunch buffet on Sundays and now we won’t go since the buffet is not offered. Also need to update the flooring as the carpets under the tables have a mildew smell. Otherwise great food and we enjoy visiting.

    The need to add more (change) the menu to reflect contemporary food items, the menu is stale

    I enjoy going to the pub because of the atmosphere, the close proximity to home and the service is usually friendly.. Honestly the food is a huge disappointment nearly every time I go. On Thursday 2/21 my friends and I only ordered a basket of zucchini fries at the bar, because we’ve been dissatisfied with the food in the past. The zucchini fries were soggy and tasteless. I would love to patronize your establishment more often, but something needs to be done about the poor quality of the food. I’ve seen poor reviews on Yelp for the past few years and the food continues to get worse.
    Response from The Black Horse Tavern & Pub
    Thank you for your honest review. We are sorry to hear that the food did not meet the quality that we strive for. We will pass your notes along to the chef and the general manager. We do hope you can give us another try in the future.

    Always high quality food and service. Atmosphere is top notch for casual dining. Staff very friendly and accommodating to kids and regulars of which there are many. One of our favorite spots!

    We have been going there 30 years. Quality of food has deteriorated, especially chicken. We were once regular customers, but no longer.

    We LOVE The Black Horse Pub.Scott is a great bartender and so friendly! I tried something new for the first time -- the cripsy eggplant sandwich, it was amazing! The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is because my friends and I are not big fans of the logo change. The previous horse logo is just more fitting.

    I have enjoyed patronizing the Pub and the Restaurant for over 3 decades. They have been losing some patronage as the prices have gone up and up. Many have boogied down the road to Redwoods in Chester. They DO have a happy hour; and a BOGO on Mondays. The Pub used to have a happy hour, and also I miss the Junior chicken pot pie. These days many eat smaller meals for dinner and don't need dinner for two on their plates with a price to match. Desserts are always primo and the service is always prompt! Better prices and more appetizers would help the cocktail crowd! Black Horse, you need to check out the competition!

    Service was excellent, the shrimp appetizer was just okay nothing made it special. The fish n chips was extremely bland and greasy. The ambiance was very inviting. The beer was tasty. We ordered an IPA that the server suggested I think we just chose the wrong food.We will be back to try other things.

    Definitely not the Black Horse that my family has been frequenting for 30 years. The food is sub par, the service is inexperienced, the vibe is not welcoming. During our last and final visit, it was a Saturday night during the baseball play offs. The restaurant should have been packed and it was empty. There were only 2 seasoned members of the wait staff left, all of our food came out cold and the recipes were changed not for good. Some items on the menu were disgustingly over-priced. It was very sad as this was a pace families celebrated, friends met for good drinks and food, customers were welcomed by management and the wait staff warmly and by our names. The owners have ruined the restaurants for the sake of profit. Maybe penny wise but definitely pound foolish!
