the Black Horse

This pub has been in the same family for 101 years. It has not changed much in that time. It is a beautiful little idyll that I stumbled across whilst driving around one day. It has a stables to the rear and side. Opposite is a paddock. The mens toilet is a lean-to outside! At night it is pitch black for miles around as the establishment is set in the middle of a forest.

When you enter it is like walking into someones front room. Little inglenook fires, lots of real mugs and tankards, wonderful (and local) real ales that the landlord has to go down into the cellar to fill the pints from. Hung on the walls are his paintings which he also does down in the cellar. Amazing place, a real piece of history!
