The Black Horse Tavern is a long standing landmark country pub and tavern in Mendham.

There are set up as two buildings housing the more informal pub where you can sit at the bar or at tables and be served a typical pub menu of burgers, steaks, sandwiches, and drinks by a working fireplace. The Pub is family friendly and tends to have a high noise level during the busy hours.

The other building is a more formal country inn setting with an expanded menu of traditional American food. The decor is rustic country farmhouse with an early American history feel to it. Get a table by the working fireplace and enjoy a cozy dinner.

The diners in the tavern tend to be 50+ in age, high income patrons.

They are open for Sunday Brunch, and on Mothers and Fathers Day.

They have a piano bar every Friday evening and live Jazz on Saturday evenings.

They are Child friendly and offer valet parking
