Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Black Horse

Plain but appealing old pub, with a single bar created from two small rooms (one in the single storey side extension) and with the resulting seating areas now forming an 'L' shape. Alehouse-style furniture, and decoration largely restricted to a selection of prints. There is also internal signage for a restaurant but it's not clear whether this is in regular use. With three of the four handpumps in operation, I found the regular Goats Milk from Church End (£3.20) plus Tribute and the Amarillo single-hop version of Robinson's Dizzy Blonde.

The Black Horse is a decent looking town pub that is almost opposite the Old Swan pub.
Once inside there is a small L shaped room with the bar facing,there is some bench seating to the right and wicker type chairs and wood tables to the the left,the room is bare boarded to the left and tiled to the right,there was a real fire on the go during my Saturday dinner visit.
There is a separate dining room to the rear.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Sharps Cornish Coaster which was a decent enough drink,the other beers were St Austell Tribute and GK Abbot.
This is a pleasant enough pub to have a couple of drinks in.

This is an end terrace pub, with patio are. It is at least a Victorian pub, with a larger cottage (one of the upper windows is blind and one of the lower entrances is blocked. There is a smaller side building, both are in cream render and have moulded cornices. The interior is an L-shape and is in white and coffee artex, with a white ceiling and red tile floor. There is a brick fire at one end and one large mirror at either end. Some musical instruments (banjo and guitar) are on display and the TV wasn't on. Georgian prints and some jugs add further interest. The service was friendly, as were the locals that were in - especially when free chips arrived. Beer; usual tap stuff with Abbot, Sharpes Cornish Lobster and Wharfedale Celtic Red on handpull - the last being decent. A nice place, and worth popping into, at least for one.
