Gastro Pub in Bedfordshire - The Black Horse


Peach is a collection of really great pubs, mainly in market towns in the heart of England. The Black Horse in Woburn is a traditional pub with modern features, exposed beams and modern décor.  As a quality gastropub, we serve great ingredients and fresh, honest food in relaxed, welcoming surroundings, always with a kind word and a sense of fun. Today we have twenty two pubs in lovely towns and villages, and an undimmed devotion to Making life Peachy. We have always been passionate about giving back and as we’ve developed and grown over the years, our ability and motivation to make the world a little better, a little peachier, has grown with us. The Bigger Peach shows our efforts to improve communities, equality in the workplace, and the future sustainability of our world. Our achievements were recognised in 2022, when we won Best Sustainable Pub Company at the Publican Awards, and we’re also three-star accredited by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. 

Soak up the sun and atmosphere whilst enjoying a bite to eat, a cocktail, or a glass of award-winning wine from our drinks list. We serve food all day and children are welcome to enjoy smaller portions of any of our dishes. We take huge pride in serving the best ingredients we can find, from ethical producers, freshly prepared by our chefs. We’re dog friendly in our bar and outdoor areas, bring your furry friend and stop by soon. On our bar you’ll find a great range of spirits, beers, and softs, so whether you pop in for a drink, a business lunch, or a special dinner, we promise you a friendly welcome. Find us here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Jade & The Black Horse Team

Jade O’Brien, General Manager

Born and bred in Aylesbury, Jade started her career in hospitality 12 years ago. Finding she enjoyed the social side of the industry and meeting new people, Jade returned to the pub world after completing her degree. We were lucky enough for Jade to start her journey with Peach 6 years ago, at The James Figg, before joining us at The Black Horse.

Jade learnt a lot at The James Figg working alongside and learning from Goldie. With that and her belief in the Peach values, Jade’s journey from assistant manager through to General Manager is an inspiration. She’s had a lot of fun along the way too.

Coming from a family who love to travel and try new foods, Jade has a world map and a Polaroid camera ready to tick off more of her adventures around the world. Maybe even retiring in the South of France to run her own B&B. On her days off you’ll find Jade with her Rotweiller, Keeba, grazing at her favourite local watering holes.

Pop by and see Jade soon, she might even show off some of her famous Irish dancing moves!


Jonathan Taylor, POD Director

Half Scouse and born in Bedfordshire, Jonathan (also known as JT) is a familiar face in the Peach team. Joining the hospitality game at 14, as a pot wash in a local restaurant, Jonathan’s career was soon flying. He moved on to The Birch, in Woburn, where he worked his way up to become assistant manager at just 18 (impressive indeed!). He then developed his skills with Peach during his twenties, where his hard work was nationally recognised, winning an Acorn Award in 2013. He then flew the nest for a few years before reuniting with us as a POD Director.

A true foodie, Jonathan believes real quality lies in local and spends much of his time seeking out independent restaurants, cafes and bars when away visiting different places. If you ask him about the best steak he’s ever had, he’ll be sure to tell you about a back street restaurant tucked away in Campos, Majorca, a place highly raved about by the locals. Along with a sharp taste for food, he has a passion for wine, and we can’t help but love his “I don’t drink bad wine – life’s too short” approach.

On his days off you’ll find Jonathan on the search for vintage watches, playing badminton for his local team, or making the best cauliflower cheese in the UK (a title awarded by his wife).

Say hi if you spot him in the pub!
