Black Horse Inn


Legend has it that Dick Turpin eloped with his lady from this village pub in the Swale Valley, just off the vast village green; the inn was named after the outlaw's steed in celebration. The pub garden adjoins fields, and the interior, including the seven character bedrooms, is appointed to create a pleasing mix of tradition and comfort. No surprise then that locals and visitors are encouraged to tarry a while, to sup a grand Yorkshire pint and enjoy accomplished food that covers all the bases. Look for starters such as crispy chicken and black pudding bon bon, sweetcorn purée, charred corn and crispy quail's eggs; then a main course of slow-cooked beef, caramelised onions, pancetta, button mushrooms, pan haggerty potato and beef jus; or fish pie with cheddar mash and seasonal veg.
