The Black Horse

IRELAND, Shefford, SG17 5QL

Original beams, slate floors, inglenook fireplaces, original artwork and low ceilings combine to create a chic and modern interior in this family-run, 17th-century inn. The flower-rich garden and courtyard offer alfresco dining in the warmer months. Grab a pint of Adnams, or choose from the excellent wine list, and settle down in comfort to appreciate the tempting, seasonally inspired dishes made from locally sourced produce - maybe pan-seared calves' liver with horseradish and spring onion potato scone; Dingley Dell pork loin steak with spiced apple jam; or baked supreme of Atlantic hake with lemon parsley broth and chowder-style vegetables.
