user reviews of the Black Horse, South Mimms

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The worst pub of the day we tried in Hertfordshire. The bar area is fairly sparse and the locals were stood blocking access to the lounge whilst watching live football on the big screen and were completely ignorant of people trying to pass through. The lounge is a more pleasant affair until you hear the language. I'm no angel. But there's swearing and there's swearing. This was particularly offensive. The whole pub smelt of dogs. A couple were present. It's a very poor Greene King tied pub - IPA & Ruddles Best were on.

This used to be a decent pub for ale but only GK IPA was on offer so went for a lager instead. Still looks the part of a local but doesn't feel it. The main area is split in to a bar & lounge style set up. Not a friendly place if you ain't a local.

The Black Horse is a smallish two bar pub tucked away down the narrow Black Horse Lane in South Mimms, just off the main rat run between Junctions 22 and 23 of the M25.
Its a Greene King pub, so the beer choice is not stunning, with usually IPA and Speckled Hen on offer and the IPA has been well kept on the couple of times I have dropped in. The internal decor is traditional with wooden beams, brass plaques and old photos on the walls and an open fire in the more public of the two bars. But the Lounge section, which is mainly used as the dining section, is still fairly plain and homely and has a feeling more like your Grans front room.
The pub also benefits from a decent sized outsize back garden, equipped with a Gazebo with benches to accommodate the smokers.
Customers tend to be locals and passing ramblers, exploring the many woodland walks in the area.
So, in conclusion a decent enough, no frills back street local boozer and if I lived in the village, Id certainly be in here at regular intervals.
