A very nice place and...

Liked: It is a nice place and the food is good. Lovely cider. The rooms, which are purpose-built and outside of the main building, each with private access and parking close by, are excellent. The owner is a very nice helpful man.One can walk up a short lane and hill behind the pub to see castle remains, fantastic views and access to the adjacent country park on the Downs.
Disliked: For some reason, people with dogs are expected to eat in a different room, which was odd for a pub. I was allowed to eat in the bar, but this was not advised first. Also unable to take my dog to the breakfast buffet which was irritating.

Slow service in the restaurant...

Liked: Restaurant - The Black Horse Inn is in a glorious position on the Pilgrim's Way. There are several well laid out areas outside at the back of the Pub Restaurant to accommodate eating and drinking for quite a large number of people. Accommodation - The bedrooms with ensuites are contemporary and clean so you can get in and relax immediately. Parking for the staying visitors is separate and close to the accommodation. Atmosphere is friendly (to people and dogs!) and relaxed.
Disliked: Restaurant - We pre-booked an early evening meal (18:45) as the menu looked good, and food had good ratings. Unfortunately the starter ordered from the daily specials board had already run out. The chicken with mushroom sauce had garlic in both the sauce and the accompanying potatoes which meant that with my partner's garlic intolerance he could not have it, and apparently the dish could not be prepared without garlic. The chef suggested fish and chips which although were only on the lunch time menu they still had a supply. Having sorted out an alternative we waited over an hour for the meal. The ordered desserts - ice cream and pear tartin also took ages to arrive. There did not appear to be many people dining, and when we complained we did not get any explanation as to why the service was so slow. Accommodation - worth mentioning that the lodges are sub divided, so every two individual rooms share a common entrance. The dividing wall between the two accommodations was apparently quite thin as you could hear guests in the other room if they were speaking loudly (though thankfully you couldn't hear the actual content of the conversation!).
