Lovely old pub. Quite a favourite of mine as I met friends here regularly when I was younger. Good beer and ciders. Lovely in summer as seating outside. Good car park. Outside toilets can be a bit chilly! Very friendly pub

Lovely pub just of the M5. Great selection on menu and specials board. Good beers too. Baguettes aren't cheap but all enjoyed our choices

Stopped off for lunch on our trip from Lincolnshire to a week's holiday in Devon - a really good experience - very friendly staff, excellent value soup (proper home-made!) & sausage/onion roll delivered very promptly. Pity it's so far from home!

Walked over from Nailsea via Tyntesfield Saturday morning, arriving just as they opened at eleven. Enjoyed a lovely coffee in front of a log fire and a chat with another early bird. This pub has kept it's charm for as long as I can recall...More

I just love old (in this case 14th century) British pubs. The only thin I miss about England having lived in France for over 16 years is a good pint of real ale in a traditional tavern. The Black Horse ticks all the boxes for...More
