The Black Horse
420 Ongar Road, Pilgrims Hatch, Brentwood, Essex, CM15 9JN 01277 374946
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
The original building was an inn that refreshed and accommodated pilgrims to the chapel dedicated to St. Thomas in 1221 travelling through Pilgrims Hatch. The Black Horse was built in around the 16th century as a small hall house, with a cross wing at the northern end, and a southern wing being added in the 17th century.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, including our steak & mushroom pie and beer-battered fish and chips. Why not try some of our new seasonal dishes like Asparagus & ricotta ravioli or Roasted Salmon with vine tomatoes & pesto.
We look forward to welcoming you, and we’ll ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, lager, fine wines, British gin and soft drinks to suit every taste — which will taste all the better when enjoyed in our beautiful and picturesque gardens.
There’s always a great reason to visit The Black Horse.

Our charming black and white timbered 16th century inn is a favourite with visitors to nearby Weald Country Park - some 500 acres with lakes and tree-lined avenues created by landscapers in the 18th century.
There’s more to The Black Horse than just great food and drink.
Did you know that if you’re a CAMRA member you can enjoy 20p off any pint of cask ale?
