The Black Jug is the first pub you encounter when making your way from the train station towards the centre of town and the double gabled building is quite striking on approach. The pub has an opened out interior which runs around what is now an island servery. The decor is a mix between gastro-pub and gentrified boozer and I was immediately put in mind of the Brunning and Price chain, who I later found out are the owners of this place. The front and right hand side of the pub seem to be the best spots for drinkers to congregate, although seating here is notably more limited than in the larger left hand dining area or the bright rear space that was full of families on this late Sunday afternoon visit. There was the usual mishmash of paintings, maps, drawings, photos, certificates and the like that B&P seem to specialise in across the walls and a collection of board games was available in the rear room.
We stopped off here for a bite to eat after a long walk around the surrounding countryside and the food was of a high standard whilst portion sizes were more than enough to satisfy the appetite we’d worked up. There were around five or six ales available and the one I sampled was in pretty good shape. Several other customers were trying the ales, so throughput looks to be pretty good, certainly by food-led pub standards.
This is a pleasant enough pub with a decent enough ale range to merit a look, and it felt like one of Brunning and Price’s more ‘pubby’ outlets, although I did leave thinking that the place probably worked better for us because we happened to be eating here.

The Black Jug can be found on North Street midway between Horsham Railway Station and the Town Centre. I tried to gain access just after 11:00 on a recent Saturday morning, but alas the doors were firmly shut. I decided to adjust my pub crawl of the area so that I could return later in the day. I have since learned that this pub is open from 11:30 until 23:00 Monday to Saturday and 12:00 until 22:30 on Sundays.
My return visit to the Black Jug was at 17:00 when it was half full with a mixed crowd mainly consisting of twenty-somethings. The front of the pub is a U shaped bar area with pictures and prints on the walls. Seating stretches around the exterior walls and there are a few stools against the bar. I counted six hand pumps that were drawing Caledonian Brewery’s Deuchars, Brains’ Bread of Heaven, Harvey’s Best, Theakston’s Vanilla Stout, Castle Rock’s Harvest Pale and Westons’ Rosie’s Pig cider. A keg range of Fosters, Kronenburg, Birra Moretti, Caledonian Three Top, Aspalls’ Cider, Stowford Press cider and Guinness were also available. I’m not usually that observant of the back bar, but the massive spirit range in here was difficult to miss.
At the rear of the pub is a conservatory full of seating, some of which was reserved for diners. Food is available from 12:00 until 22:00 Monday to Saturday and 12:00 until 21:30 on Sundays. The mains are priced between £11 for sausage and mash to £18 for 10oz rump steak.
Out the back is a paved beer garden complete with seating, some of which is covered. There are also a couple of tables on the path under some hanging baskets at the front of the pub. There is no car park, but parking is available in the road opposite. Children are welcome until 17:00 and well behaved dogs on leashes are also welcomed. A ramp is available for the front step for those with mobility issues, but there is no disabled toilet.

I found the service to be polite and I managed to find a comfortable spot to have a relaxing pint. I would have no problem with returning in the future.
