Bentley's Black Horse  

Not far from the Seven Valley Railway's heritage track, this is a long thin pub also not far from the river - subject to flooding on rare occasions.

This classic old English pub has won a CAMRA award or two in its time. The two bars can have up to three guest ales on, though one of these is usually from Bank's. The house bitter is from a micro brewer.

The bar is thin oak panelled as are the walls in the lounge bar to the right on entry. The low beamed ceiling adds to its charm as does the deep red carpet and dark wood tables and chairs. Piped music can get annoying, though you can sit at the bar to avoid it on the stools provided. The Black horse serves plenty of wines and fruit wine too plus cocktails and special coffees. Food is served in the restaurant daily during the summer months only.

The public bar is less well furnished, being bare floored with a dartboard, though no less welcoming.

Outside there is a beer 'garden' of sorts. The atmosphere in general is friendly, though the CCTV makes you wonder. Access is good for the disabled and there is accommodation.

You get to the SVR via an old incline railway dating back to the last century.



Since visiting the black horse on my visit to the UK from Australia the more than entertaining landlord named Mr smith I found both the newly renovated drinking hole both warming and enjoyable, keep up the good work. (28/6/05)
