The Black Horse Hotel Garrs Lane Grassington 28th October 2017

The Black Horse Hotel is in the lovely village of Grassington and is a proper pub, catering for beer drinkers and diners alike, with a warm atmosphere, no formulaic design or soulless, but full of character unlike so many pubs these days.   There is a lovely dining room through to the back, with lovely lighting and big tables, so great for larger parties.

They have clearly marked vegan options on the menu, so there is plenty of choice for vegans, although only a fruit salad for dessert sadly, would be lovely if they improved on this.

I also found two vegan friendly wines on the list, after emailing two wine producers, who were more than happy to answer my questions.

I was disappointed the soup marked as a vegan option, was cream of cauliflower, what a shame they did not keep some aside for me without the cream, they clearly knew I was a vegan it was on our booking.   I therefore chose the nachos with salsa with houmous instead of the cheese with a glass of the Chenin Blanc.

I was impressed the tortilla chips were freshly made and cooked, not just out of a bag, were crisp and not greasy at all and a good sized portion too, a perfect starter.

Main course was wild mushroom and spinach risotto, which I ordered with some trepidation, I have had so many risottos that have been awful and tasteless.   This version was far from that, there were plenty mushrooms and spinach, it was well seasoned and I took some Good Carma Foods Original dairy free Parmesan with me, so all in all it was a delicious risotto.

I really like The Black Horse and although its a long drive for us, next time we would stay over as they have rooms and being in the Yorkshire Dales, it is brilliant for walking.
