Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Black Horse (JD Wetherspoon)

Hugely imposing brewer's Tudor roadhouse with one of the longest pub facades in Britain. Whilst given the Wetherspoon treatment inside, there is plenty of interest retained here too, including a fine feature fireplace. The elongated main bar mainly serves those just having a drink, but there is a further larger seating / dining area in a rear room and more tables hidden away behind the bar. Function room with another small bar (not in use) upstairs. Given the size of the building, there must be a good deal more unused space too, and there is also a rear patio area. Reasonable selection of real ales from seven of ten handpumps (allowing for duplicates), with the Backyard January Sale (£2.49) proving to be in good form.

As mentioned below this is a huge original roadside pub that also gives its name to the busy A38 road junction where it stands. As also noted below it was a Davenport's house and did appear in the GBG under that guise. It's something of a labyrinth inside with a central bar area containing tall tables and chairs, a dining room off to the left, two further areas to the right and a narrow area with white tiles alongside the doors leading to the patio. Despite this being an expensive Spoons for the Midlands (standard guest ales £2.49) there was something of a daytime brigade contingent as well as an ignorant chavvy mother who was happy to allow her two kids to use the left side of the pub as a playground.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which on my visit had the JDW Trio Of Doom, one unused, London Pride, Prescott Grand Prix, Banks's Alpha 5 Pale, Brewster's Rutterkin, Ringwood Razor Back and Inveralmond Schiehallion. I had time to try the Grand Prix & Rutterkin (£2.65) which were in really good nick.
Overall I thought this was a good Spoons.

Large, spralling Wetherspoons, unusual due to its mock-tudor style and there is also a separation of space internally. Old tudor house interior makes it a nice design but there is also the standard Wetherspoons fittings that make it feel slightly 'chainy'.

There is a large pation and also a bowling green at the rear making a nice space.

The fact there is a good choice of very well kept beer and the service seems good makes this one of the better Wetherspoons.
