The pub is named after a local prize winning horse, and the painting of this horse can be found on the left hand wall in the front bar. The pub is themed on a Victorian beer house and hosts a curved mahogany serving counter and old handpumps. All the décor throughout is Victorian in style and I especially liked the first floor room, which looked like a room from a museum. There were no pump clips to be seen in keeping with tradition and two beer names were chalked up behind the bar. I tried both an IPA and a Stout. The Stout was very good and prices reasonable, I noticed they didn't charge Victorian prices, as I had my penny to hand. Beware! Beware! no mobiles or laptops allowed in here.
The barmaid and locals were friendly and chatty. Would I return? No! I like the modern day too much with phones and pumpclips.

A good little two roomed place. The servery is in the front room and a number of handpulls are to be found (4, if I remember correctly). Beers were from Swan(?),Brewery and were fine. Please note that, like my mate, you will be barked at if you use your mobile. I didn't venture into the back room as my mate had a bit of a huff on after being reprimanded. Despite its arcane rule I did like this pub.
