There is something undeniably charming about community pubs that have stood the test of time and the same is true of The Black Horse in Kingston, which was originally established way back in 1893. There is no need to worry about cobwebs or creaky floorboards on your visit though, as these days the pub is part of the Hippo Inns group, who have lovingly restored the space into a contemporary, yet cosy environment.

Just a five minute walk from Norbiton station, The Black Horse is a welcoming and comforting pub, following a rustic-chic aesthetic that sees stylish wallpaper and cosy banquettes paired with bare wooden tables that are adorned with candlesticks and fresh flowers in glass vases. The pub also benefits from a wrap-around beer garden, where you can enjoy drinks in the sunshine or cosy up by the outdoor fire during the colder months.

As this is a pub first and foremost, you will be happy to know that you can find an impressive range of spirits and beers on tap at the bar, including a pretty substantial selection of whisky. For those looking to get the party started, there’s a list of classic cocktails (two-for-one on Thursdays), while soft drinks and mocktails are available for anyone not looking to drink.

The Black Horse is also home to an inviting menu of contemporary pub grub, with children’s options and Sunday roasts available too. Pub classics such as fish and chips and steak are available, while there are also salads for those looking for a light bite. We are most tempted however by The Black Horse Burger, crowned with crispy bacon, cheddar, red onion marmalade and Hippo burger sauce.

You can round off your meal with indulgent desserts such as a warm chocolate brownie, and be sure to keep an eye out for The Black Horse’s occasional price deals and roster of events, such as its Thursday night quizzes.

Great little Pub

Service was excellent with good personal attention.

I had a problem with some of the food but this was quickly sorted.

Would come again for food or drinks
