Full Description
  • The Black Horse Inn is a 17th Century pub and restaurant built on the Pilgrims Way, situated on the North Downs in Kent. Designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' your wedding can be held in our flower covered gazebo with your guests seated under a beautiful wooden pergola in our private gardens, with the reception being held in the newly built 'Pilgrim Suite' - a large reception room adorned with wooden beams and Kentish hops. It features its own serviced bar, a dance floor and private restrooms. The Pilgrim Suite looks out over our 3 acres of grounds, where our 27 beautiful en-suite bed and breakfast rooms are situated. The Black Horse Inn can cater for smaller, more intimate weddings for 10 guests or larger more lavish weddings for up to 110 guests. Please contact us for a full brochure, and to arrange an appointment to discuss your requirements in more detail.
