At the foot of the hill dropping from the medieval church, The Black Horse commands the sloping green in this peaceful village outside Melton Mowbray. The trim, flowery garden, alfresco dining area and rich, warm interior reflect this village setting, where Leicestershire produce leads on the highly traditional menu. Steak and ale pie; lamb shank; or chicken breast with Stilton and bacon are classic dishes, whilst daily specials, a snack menu, fresh fish dishes and a vegetarian board enliven the choice. On the beer front, two weekly-changing guest ales complement regional favourites.
