The Black Horse is an 18th Century inn with luxury accommodation in a wonderful rural setting tucked beneath the rolling hills of the North Downs.
The Black Horse Inn is a relaxed and unpretentious, rural, family run inn set in the Kentish countryside. Situated on the Pilgrims Way the route the Pilgrims took between Winchester and Canterbury, to the shrine of Thomas Beckett and mentioned in the ‘Canterbury Tales’ by Geoffrey Chaucer. The inn has offered food, drink and bed and breakfast for weary travellers for hundreds of years.
The restaurant menu is large and varied and can cater for those just looking for a sandwich or light lunch, a classic pub meal or indeed a full a la carte offering, washed down with a glass of wine from a local vineyard or a well-kept local real ale. The restaurant offers an exciting selection of a la carter dishes and regularly changing specials, to keep the offering fresh and varied.
The 18th century inn offers some of the finest bed and breakfast accommodation in Maidstone, and although not situated in the inn itself, the bed and breakfast is conveniently located in a series of separate Kentish barn style buildings close to the main inn. The surroundings are idyllic, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and historically significant.
All the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, double bed, complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate, television with Freeview and complimentary access to WiFi. As well as these facilities there is an excellent choice for breakfast: fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, toast and a range of locally made preserves. The choice for cooked breakfast is extensive, with a full English, eggs benedict, eggs royale and many more options.
