About

Situated in the heart of Clifton Village, West Yorkshire, The Black Horse Inn is an intimate wedding venue steeped in history. Family-owned, this distinctive 17th-century inn radiates a traditional British charm that blends in effortlessly with the surrounding Georgian architecture. With open fires and beautiful outdoor settings, this is a wonderful venue for a cosy country wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

Fully licensed for civil ceremonies, The Black Horse Inn is ideal for laidback weddings, allowing couples to host every stage in one inviting space. This rustic haven is a short 20-minute drive from Leeds, making it a convenient location for city excursions and tranquil retreats. A choice of two airports lies within 45 minutes of the property, allowing couples to jet-set on their honeymoon straight from the venue. For destination weddings, this is the ideal space to soak up the serene ambience that the British countryside offers in abundance. The aesthetic continues within the inn, with its oak beams and exposed brick. Civil ceremonies can be held in the Clifton Room, which holds up to 60 guests or The Wellington Suite, which accommodates 80. This secluded event space is a beautiful blank canvas featuring a private bar and kitchen for couples to craft their unique stamp. The space can fit up to 65 for a seated meal with doors that open out onto a gorgeous courtyard, ideal for post-ceremony drinks. At the end of the evening, the happy couple can retire to the luxury Epernay Room while guests can choose from 20 individually designed bedrooms set over 17th-century cottages.

Services Offered

The Black Horse Inn team understands the individuality every couple brings, and that’s why each wedding is treated as a completely bespoke affair. Couples are given ample choice and flexibility from the arrival drinks to the canapes alongside exclusive hire. When it comes to catering, the venue has held an AA rosette award since 2005 and is delighted to provide this high standard across each dining experience. Couples can explore the dining options and elite cuisine available through the online brochure, including buffet-style meals and three-course menus. A full list of preferred suppliers, including florists and photographers, is also included.

    The Perfect Wedding Venue

    We got hitched in June 2022 at the Black Horse Inn, Clifton. This venue is a must for anyone who is having a small to mid scale wedding (we had 64 day guests, 85 night guests), the venue is simply amazing, steeped in history and a wonderful layout for your fabulous day,
    The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable, from the bridal suite to the small single bedrooms (and all the others in between).
    The food was delicious, we ate at the BHI a few times before our big day and always had good quality, tasty food and we knew we would be in good hands for our wedding breakfast.
    Lydia the Black Horse Inn Wedding Planner was absolutely fabulous right from the word go, warm, friendly and incredibly organised, always prepared to go the extra mile and extremely proactive. Lydia was happy to answer the bombardment of email queries that we sent her and always responded quickly.
    On the day itself Lydia and her team were superb, everything ran so smoothly and we weren't even aware that they were their guiding us and making sure that everything went to plan.
    We cant praise the Black Horse Inn & Lydia highly enough and recommend it as a wedding venue wholeheartedly, many of our guests messaged us after the event saying what an amazing day it had been and so many said it was the best wedding they have ever been to........ in fact it was the best wedding that we have ever been to, but then we are biased!

    We had our wedding here in November and Lydia looked after us amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful food, gorgeous bedrooms and the day itself was faultless.

    We Cant Recommend Enough

    After looking around for a charming pub with rooms to get married in we settled on The Black Horse. It helped that my father-in-law got married here 12 years ago and they had no complaints, we certainly didn’t either!!

    From booking the wedding 13 months ago the whole team were incredibly easy to deal with, especially Lydia who made everything a dream. All questions were answered and dealt with above and beyond our expectations no matter how trivial. Nothing was too much trouble.

    On the day we had not one complaint from ourselves nor our 78 guests. Everyone commented on how good the food was not just on the day but breakfast, lunch and dinner the night before and day after too.

    We can’t recommend Lydia and The Black Horse enough. You won’t be disappointed with anything from nipping in for coffee or a meal through to a full wedding.

    Wow

    Myself and my partner recently got married here and wow! From start to finish everything was perfect. We owe a massive thanks to Lydia and her team. Lydia is so amazing at her job, we couldn't have done it all without her! She is fantastic and a real credit! All our guests has commented on how fab the venue was, the food, rooms, courtyards etc and some have even said its the best wedding they have ever been to. If you are looking for a local wedding venue we would highly recommended the Black Horse Inn, it has everything under one roof and the staff are brilliant! We want to do it all again!! Thank you so so much!!

    Perfect

    I had my wedding party here and it was just perfect, everything looked so so beautiful and was so well organised. Thank you to everyone who looked after us, Lydia you were amazing talking me through every detail and ensuring me everything was going to be ok (it was more than ok, it was magical) and on the night Phoebe was so helpful and kind. I couldn’t recommend this place more for how wonderful it is, to the food, the decor and the staff. Thank you for finishing off our wedding perfectly ????
