Jon B left this review about Black Horse Hotel

one of my favourite pubs and certainly the best in Preston, for reasons that I will now set out:

- interior of majestic Victorian splendour and multiple unspoiled drinking rooms, perfect for quiet pint
- a great range of Robinsons (of which I am a fan) beer as well as interesting guests
- staff and clientele that are friendly and not up their own arse
- completely unpretentious, it's a traditional pub and doesn't pretend to be anything else

A nice pub that served Robinson's beers plus a few guests. Victorian in decor it had, from what I could make out, at least 3 rooms. The 2 smalls rooms that I went into where located at the front of the pub. There are better descriptions of the interior elsewhere so I won't step on their toes. The beer, sadly, wasn't great on my visit with standard Robinson's offerings and a Marston's. That said it is a nice pub and worth a visit.

I visited this Robinson's pub once before well over thirty years ago. Just about everything around it has changed but the exterior looked the same and the interior I'm sure is exactly the same.
As well described below it's an island bar with various rooms off it.
When I arrived there was some sort of photo shoot going on with a tall woman dressed to probably look Victorian with a long black dress and a black hat that would look completely ridiculous even at Royal Ascot.
I bypassed this strange event to see what the beer choice was like.
It consisted of 5 Robinson's beers, Trooper, Unicorn (Best), Dizzy Blond, Frosty Frolics and Double Hop. There was a white label beer which is Robinson's "experimental" brewery and from the Marston stable Hobgoblin and Pedigree. There were also two ciders on offer. I completely failed to see the point of the two Marston beers and went for the bog standard Unicorn (£2.90) which I thought was rather bland and disappointing. I wished the Old Tom had been on.
As for the interior it is quite special but agree with below about the
fruit machines being an eyesore. I didn't spot any TV screens so they must have been off.
