user reviews of the Black Horse, Caythorpe

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

The Black Horse was my favourite pub on my 12 pub crawl of Nottinghamshire. It's an unassuming building from the outside in a quiet village. It has 2 small rooms with a corridor connecting the two. I sat in a bar with one man and his dog, until another couple joined us. There were a few more locals in the other room. It has a typical country pub feel and you are assured of a warm welcome. It is also the home of the Caythorpe Brewery. They only had their Dover Beck Bitter on. But they also had Bass, Greene King Abbot & Castle Rock Harvest Pale. A place where you cannot avoid engaging in conversation with locals. The gents toilet can be found outside in the car park. Full of character, this pub is well worth a visit.

Called in today on my way back from a meeting. Picked out of the good pub guide. Cracking place. I've driven that way on loads of times in the past having worked in Nottingham for 3 years and didn't even know it was there. Tried their own brewed One Swallow 3.6%, which was excellent. Well kept and as described by the good pub guide, very tasty. For a 3.6% it's up there with the best I've tried. The landlady (Sharon) was very friendly. The pub itself is very oldy worldy just my kind of place. The food looked excellent and smelt even better, but I didn't try. I have quarterly mtgs in nearby Nottingham and this will be a stop off on my way back home to Lincoln. Excellent.

Wonderful pub, formerly supplied by the sadly now extinct Shipstones brewery, but now brewing its own beer, and in fairness, a much nicer brew than the original Shippo's bitter! Usually a good choice of hand pulled real ale, and extremely good food available, either snacky things, or good, filling meals, usually cooked and indeed served by the landlady Sharon, daughter of the original landlady, well she was there in 1974 when I first went in!

Cosy decor too, and thankfully no gaming machines or piped musak!

Well worth a visit. The beer is made in a little brewery at the back. it is just a shame you rarely see Caythorpe beers. The pub itself is sall, but has two separate rooms, and some tables outside.

This splendid little country pub is well worth seeking out.

They serve their own brewery's beers as well as some great quality food.
