user reviews of the Black Horse, Wakefield

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

Recently re opened after extensive re furbishment Theakstons Bitter
and Old Peculier ,expensive for Wakefield but a good refuge from some of the
City Centre pubs with their wall to wall Lager and John Smiths Extra smooth.
The food Menu if a bit corporate seems reasonable.

Well I remember this place. A few of us were working nearby, and we spent a relaxing extended lunchtime here. The conversation turned to a colleague, who'd once worn a toupee, and comic tales relating to male hairpieces in general, punctuated by quite a bit of laughter.

We didn't pay much attention to the group of men who'd come in a few minutes earlier, but gradually realised they'd gone very quiet. There were about ten of them: young chaps in suits, they might have been junior accountants, accompanied by the tall senior patriarch. He, significantly, had gone a strange purplish pink, which clashed awfully with his carrot coloured...rug.

None of the youngsters wanted to catch either his, or anyone else's eye, and all stared painfully at their beer or shoes, as if, as was almost certainly the case, their careers depended on keeping a straight face. Fortunately one had the presence of mind to crack a joke, rather weak it must be said, on an unrelated theme. There followed a deafening broadside of laughter which went on for an age, accompanied by much thigh-slapping and rib-hugging. All except for one, that was.

The small ale selection didn't spoil the fun at all.

Not quite cosy, traditional town centre pub. Three drinking areas, on two levels. Good standard of dcor, but the lighting is too bright to be truly relaxing.

Just John Smiths as a real ale. Quality OK. However, the landladys reception immediately turned cool when I expressed my disappointment about it being the only beer they had on!

Seems to attract a broad clientele. A gentle, chatty buzz when I called on a Thursday evening.

Pub food looks better than average.
Pool table. Good size patio area.
Very close to Westgate station.

In short: A solid, if uninspiring, boozer. A guest ale would probably work wonders.
