Our final stop in Bexley was supposed to open at midday. But, at a few minutes past, there was no sign of life. We weren't sure whether it was still open. Eventually, after a phone call, the landlord opened up. I'm not sure it was worth the short walk away from the centre though. Old Speckled Hen was the only real ale. We were the only people in. So, it was difficult to judge the pub. With a train to catch, we couldn't hang around. The pub has a well worn and traditional interior.

Good little traditional pub, tucked slightly away from the beaten track, with a nice beer garden, worth a visit!

Nice pint of Landlord, average pub inside decor wise, quite small and had a quiz night when we went so was a bit cramped. Not a bad pub, one of the best in Bexley Village for beers that's for sure!

Very pleasant back-street local. Courage Best, Landlord and Cottage Somerset & Dorset Ale were on when I visited. Staff and locals seemed friendly. Wish I could have stayed longer but was on my way to see a play. Definitely worth seeking out.

Attracted by the reviews, I had to try this for myself and was not disappointed. The mid-day welcome was inviting and the first pint of the day (DoomBar) came in excellent condition (somebody knows how to look after their beer and pumps). It's unfortunate the same mid-week mid-day standard is not available in the rest of Bexley. After a less than impressive tour round the Bexley pubs (those that were open) I had to return to the Black Horse to remind myself how a well kept, well priced, beer tasted.
Now I understand how this pub is so highly rated by CAMRA - it stands out in a Bexley sea of hand pump beer mediocrity.

Lucky enough to call this my local, this was the Bexley CAMRA Runner-Up Pub of the Year 2008, presumably runner up due to the lack of pump space.
Well kept Courage throughout the year with Landlord and Doom Bar on last time I was in and all very good value. A dog friendly pub which is becoming a rarity.

Thriving buzzy community pub a short walk from the town centre, nice friendly welcome and happy to order a taxi for us(even if it was driven by Evil Kneivel's more risky double). Plenty of seating in the two bars and an outside area that looks well tended and I guess is nice in summer. Courage Best, Taylors Landlord and Adnams Bitter. Landlord and Adnams in very good nick.
