Quinno _ left this review about Old Black Horse Inn

An Everards pub in a pretty Leicestershire village. Quite large and modernised inside but fairly well done, with a number of ex-rooms (five?) over a couple of levels. There’s a mix of quarry tile flooring and carpet, whilst the paintwork is mainly a bluey green Farrow & Ball job. Perhaps the wood panelling would have been better varnished rather than painted. A mention for the garden, which has nice views over the rolling fields. Community-oriented, I noted that they were hosting a photography competition as well as a Play Your Cards Right event (right up my street!). 7 pumps with 6 on, the standards from Everards plus guests from Joules and Burton Bridge. Sampled Everards Old (lived up to its name, NBSS 2), Tiger (3), Beacon (2.5) and Suffragette (3.5). It’s a decent all-rounder, shame the beer quality wasn’t quite top-notch enough to make it more essential.

The Old Black Horse Inn is a decent looking pub in the middle of the village and away from the busy main road.This is an Everards tied house with all their beers on the bar the Beacon Bitter was very drinkable,the landlord also helped us with directions to other pubs in the area this pub is well worth a visit.
