The Black Horse in Thame

Review: French brasserie meets British pub classics in Thame

The Black Horse in Thame is a bit like entering Dr Who’s tardis. You enter what appears to be a fairly ordinary 16th century pub then wander into a gloriously sunny garden room before moving into the original coach house, which has been given a new lease of life, transformed into an impressive dining room with striking metal chandeliers strung between original beams and with real linen napkins on the tables. This sets the scene for an extremely pleasing dining experience, for the food served here is simply divine.
