Soup Dragon left this review about The Black Horse

A nice detached cottagey styled country pub, mainly in undressed brick, with front and rear patio areas.

The interior had a bar to the left on entry and a lounge/dining area to the right, which was all dark on my Sunday visit, as they didn’t do food that day. The bar is in red and cream, with a grey wall, the lower part of which was a brick fireplace. There is a stone flagged floor and grey ceiling. The walls are decorated with old photos and there are a few bottles and ephemera dotted about. A nice enough blend between the old and new. The service was friendly, as were the few clientele, mainly drinking on the patio at the front. The music was quiet.

Beer; tap stuff with Pedigree, Shipyard Independence Pale Ale and a decent Hobgoblin on handpull.

I liked this place. It was a pleasant stop-off. Having passed it so many times in the past, Mrs Soup did the merciful thing and halted the car for a swift visit. Worth a stop.
