Rex Rattus left this review about Ye Olde Black Horse

This is a John Barras branded pub, so that means that it's Greene King, with GK IPA on as well as another GK thing called Something Borrowed Something Brewed, which was a Harry and Meghan themed beer. Being a John Barras pub it still gives a 10% CAMRA discount on real ale. It's very food orientated, with massive glossy menus on all the tables offering the usual chain pubco pub grub.

The layout is pretty much the same as that encountered by the previous reviewer. The central island bar has the same area at the front, with a larger area down at the back. There's masses of black painted posts and beams around the place, giving it the classic "brewers' rustic" look, although much of it looks contrived.

It's a typical pubco pub inside, although from the outside it looks as if it could be something special. It fits neatly into the "OK" category, without being anything out of the ordinary.

This is a good sized pub with a central bar splitting the pub in two leaving a smaller area to the front that houses a dartboard and a larger area at the rear where a muted flat screen TV was showing athletics whilst some background music was playing. One of the hand pumps was off leaving Greene King IPA and Pride for the ale fans. I was served a decent pint of Guinness, but I found the service to be a little frosty and I also found the sign in the toilet that says ‘these toilets are checked by female staff and if you have a problem talk to the management’ a little antagonistic.

Cheap food is served from midday until 20:00 and there is a curry club every Tuesday. There is also an event of the month day advertised and this month there are children’s entertainers in the huge beer garden during the day and karaoke in the evening. This beer garden has some children’s climbing apparatus at the rear and I was surprised to see the bare grass carpeted with cigarette butts if this garden is openly advertised to families.

I should have liked this pub, but unfortunately the ambience wasn’t to my liking and I do not plan to revisit.
