Situated on the Stowlangtoft Hall Estate dating back to 1859, in the district of Mid Suffolk, approximately five miles north east of Bury St Edmunds, we offer a rare opportunity to feel the atmosphere where heavy horses worked and were stabled.

Quality English fayre with personable service being our recipe to make your visit one to remember 

“Once found, never forgotten” - Paul Gooch

Having spent over sixteen successful years in the village of Long Melford at The Hare Inn we felt it was time to move on and find a new challenge. 

We came upon The Dark Horse, which had been closed for approximately 18 months, and felt we what it would take to put a heart beat back in to this unique venue. We acquired the property on 1st October 2013 and set about an extensive restoration and refurbishment program of the coach house restaurant, stable bar area and restrooms including the installation of a new commercial kitchen to meet current legislation requirements. 

We re-opened The Dark Horse on the 7th March 2014 and offer morning coffee, brunch, light lunches, afternoon teas, Sunday lunch and evening meals. Within the stables area we have built a new bar for you to just come out and enjoy a drink. We offer Adnams Spindrift & rye IPA on draft along with a wide selection of wines, spirits, malt whisky and liqueurs.  

We welcome any enquiries regarding business meetings, lunches, groups and special occasions.
