Will Larter left this review about Black Horse

Smartly decorated, the Black Horse seems to promise a full range of Theakstons beers, as the relevant hand pumps are depicted around the outside of the beer garden walls (Best Bitter, Black Bull, XB, Lightfoot and Old Peculier). Although the raucous pop music was off-putting, I ventured inside - I was prepared to put up with a little discomfort for the sake of a half of OP. However, there are only three hand pumps on the bar, with beers from Sharps (Doom Bar and Atlantic) and Bradfield (Farmer Blonde). I didn't have a drink.

Old Boots left this review about Black Horse

Two rooms & a garden boasting three hand pumps with fairly boring beers, just one from Theakstons, Lightfoot plus Red Rye from Sharps and someone's Blonde. There's a lower level lounge with no counter. Old photo decor. Nice enough but not spectacular.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Black Horse

Thoroughly refurbished in a semi-modern style, with some interesting black & white photographs of the town and old-time stars from the nearby opera house on the walls. Various seating areas around the bar, including a side room down four steps. Music on the loud side on a Saturday lunchtime. Three handpumps, all dispensing Theakston beers (although not a tied house) - Lightfoot (£3.10), XB and Old Peculier.
