Quinno _ left this review about The Black Horse

The old landlord has gone - friends tell me the beer isn't up to much these days. Shame.

February 2008
A nice out-of-the-way backstreet local. Two ales on (Pride and 6X, usually in fair condition, although always a tad cold). Got some unusual soft drinks in the fridge as well, so a thumbs-up from Mrs Quinno. Pool and darts both prominently feature and both often have a crowd on, so big on their sports here. Electronic jukebox seems programmed to bellow out Glam Rock classics 24/7. TV (not always on) and quizzer complete the line up. Pub quiz on a Thursday too, apparently. Decent crowd, usual local 'characters' including a bloke who keeps wanting to tell me about his adventures in the Congo. Make sure you eat your carrots, there isn't much light beyond the bar and the pool table lamp on a dark evening.

Decent choice for Thatcham, I like it.
