Rex Rattus left this review about The Black Horse

This pub is still in Millwall territory with the trademark blue and white banner on one of the walls. An interesting decorative feature, but it hardly makes up for the lack of a real ale. I didn't see any sign of food either when I was in at Wednesday lunchtime.

Much of the original Truman's signage remains on the exterior, and inside the ceiling still has the Truman's trademark framed Vitrolite paneling. There's also still some paneling largely separating the rooms, with the room on the right containing the pool table, and the room on the left containing the dartboard down at the back. It's bare-boarded throughout, has banquettes along the sides with rectangular wooden tables and small round stools. There was a TV on showing some quiz show.

So, inside it's OK, with no airs or graces, but the absence of a real ale is a big minus factor for me. Pubs around here are struggling to survive, and I accept that they have to cater for what their customers want, and I concede that this will not always include real ale.
