Business Description

The Black Horse is a black and white timbered building in excellent condition following a recent large spend which improved both the interior and exterior of the property. The Black Horse is over 400 years old, and parts of the pub are Grade II listed, and it is a characterful community pub.


The layout of the pub is clearly sectioned to cater for the food led customer base, with food being served in multiple rooms. The facilities include a small intimate eating area, a larger restaurant with a warm homely feeling, beamed ceilings and tasteful décor and a bar area with a generous amount of seating. The catering kitchen benefits from a recent refit. The Black Horse is well set out to accommodate birthday parties, christenings and wakes. Catering for functions is provided on request. Outside there is a small courtyard with modern furniture, a smoking area with seating and cover and a large car park.

The private accommodation offers three bedrooms.

The village itself has three pubs, one post office/village shop, a village primary school, a beautiful church and a wealth of lovely buildings in the centre of the village, which is a conservation area.

The site is trading well and is an established business perfect for a food minded operator to continue to drive the business forward.
