Description

We have reinstated the pub’s original name The Black Horse established in 1893 when it was originally part of the auspices of Kingston upon Thames. The area was fundamentally agricultural with Norbiton common being enclosed under the 1808 Kingston enclosure act and the land allotted to primarily free hold dairy farmers.

In the early 1800’s London Road was a fashionable area for commercial purposes yet still set amongst the fields of the countryside. The Black Horse became the hub of the area for farmers and the like. We have refurbished the pub into a contemporary yet cosy place. Only a 5-minute walk from Norbiton station it is the perfect spot for a relaxed drink or to enjoy a fab meal, meet up with friends or just while the day away in our beautiful spacious beer garden.

On entering the pub, you will be greeted by a large open space with a raised dining area to the left, a games room with Foosball, dartboard and pinball machine to the right, some cosy nooks and niches for relaxing and a well-stocked spacious bar for drinking and eating.

With weekly quiz nights, live music and bespoke events we aim to have fun and laughter in our pub. We want to be a reflection of the needs of our local community and welcome families, groups and individuals, catering for all.

Respecting what has been as well as embracing the new, the Black Horse at Kingston offers fantastic food focusing on simple, good quality ingredients - doing the British classics well. We serve lunch and dinner Monday to Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday, as well as all day bar snacks. To compliment the food we have an excellent range of beers, hand selected wines and seasonal and fun cocktails.

We had a very enjoyable Sunday lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the activities for the kids were great. The only little downside was that the Sunday Roast food didn't seem to be as good as the weekday menu, visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 19 Feb 2017

Decor and service from bar team brilliant Menu was dissapointing and my friends food was returned to the kitchen as it was inedible The revamp gives the impression this is a bistro pub, but it has a long way to go visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 14 Feb 2017

Really excellent food, my only very small gripe......Roast potatoes we got 2 very small roasties each, and shouldn't be served with steaming hot veg on top as makes them go soggy. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 12 Feb 2017

Excellent food - really good quality cooking and innovative yet accessible menu. Service rather so-so, but hopefully it will improve. Too many squealing children - not what you expect at 8pm on a Friday evening. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 10 Feb 2017

The food was nice but the plates were not hot so the food soon got cold. The portion of veg which came with it was not enough between the two of us so asked for more which we got charged for. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 29 Jan 2017

Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and the best roast beef ever. If there's room for more, the Parkin, salted caramel sauce and ice cream is just delicious. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 29 Jan 2017

Food was great. Unfortunately I wasn't aware when I booked that there was a band playing that night - made conversation very difficult as I couldn't even hear the person next to me! visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 28 Jan 2017

A pretty average experience all round. Steaks were good but one person had fish and this was definitely off. Had to obviously be sent back immediately. Service was a lot to be desired, had to ask for the menus to be brought to the table having waited at least half hour. Once we had finished, the plates were not cleared up until we had asked for this to be done. All in all, a very disappointing evening. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 26 Jan 2017

Well done proper/normal pub food-not 'Gastro' but definitely not mass processed either. Menu has a good selection of options, but short enough to be fresh. Reasonable wine list at fair prices. Service was friendly. A little bit loud but it was busy Friday night. Recommend the mac 'n' cheese. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 20 Jan 2017

We had a fun night and the food was brought out just as requested. The only complaint and could have spoilt our night was that I had gone in to book a certain area in the pub for a party of 18. We talked about the arrangement sobit facilitated mingling. Upon arrival we were shown our space which was much smaller and narrow. We didn't let it spoil our night though. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 09 Dec 2016

Just went on the Black Horse website to find out who the owners are and found this: http://blackhorsekingston.co.uk/christmas/ with this message…. I booked 14 people for a Sunday Roast. It was only after the event that I found this: Book your Christmas party for the last week of November / first week of December and receive a free bottle of wine per 4 people for bookings of 8 people and more. ...so why was it not offered? Back to 4th Dec. It was incredibly disappointing, lots of the menu was gone - there was only 4 roast left, no burgers, no fish and chips, no catch of the day. There were some specials. But we had no choice but to go for expensive options whether we wanted to or not. I did point this out and 10% was taken off the bill. Then for dessert, 2 of the 4 options were out, therefore we only had two to choose from. We were given a bottle of Prosecco. Having said that the food we got was really good, just a shame that the lack of choice dampened an otherwise really good evening. Clare Duncan visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 04 Dec 2016

Would have given 5 stars, but it was a bit of a faff to make a booking in the first place (was told I couldn't make it over the phone and had a send an email. Then had to chase it up with another phone call), We had a nice experience when there however, staff were friendly & helpful and food & drink was great. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 04 Dec 2016

The staff and the pub itself is wonderful the atmosphere relaxed and warming. The tables in the restaurant are made up beautifully excep ours which we had booked. The quality of the food is really good but unfortunately my dinner was not heated through properly. One main dinner came with a huge selection of vegetables that 2 couldn't get through whilst the other was lacking in that department. The selection for vegetarians is poor usually a mix of side or starter dishes can be ordered but even though we don't visit the restaurant regularly the same choice is still there making it uninspiring unfortunately. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 27 Nov 2016

Held a wonderful end of year Christmas drinks at The Black Horse. We went for the canapé option and the food was excellent. Organising the event was so easy and Jo, the manager made the whole process very relaxed. Highly recommend if you're looking for a relaxed yet sophisticated function. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 24 Nov 2016

A great night in a good venue. Spoilt however by the payment process whereby at the point of payment the EPOS asked if i wanted to add gratuity despite 12.5% already included on the bill. I find this process totally dishonest and and should be outlawed especilly in pubs where attention maybe somewhat blurred. I would hope the hippo policy can be changed soon. visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 18 Nov 2016

Had a truly enjoyable Saturday evening celebrating our anniversary. Staff were welcoming and friendly, fizz flowed and the food was delicious (although the bacon wrapping the monkfish was very salty). frogster visited The Black Horse - Hippo Inns on 01 Oct 2016
