The Black Horse Pub
A country pub in Hookwood for the whole community
Situated close to Gatwick airport and two and a half miles from the M23, the Black Horse is a great example of a friendly, traditional, English country pub.
The Black Horse refers to the overnight ride from London to York made by Dick Turpin, on his horse Black Bess in 1737 and the pub is the second ‘Black Horse’ Inn in Hookwood (the old Black Horse Inn was at the top of Horse Hills).
Renowned locally for its great food and award-winning Badger beers, the pub has plenty of parking, as well as a large garden and children’s play area, making it glorious in the summer. And during the darker and colder winter months our roaring log fires, oak beams and traditional interior really do make it a pub for all seasons and occasions.
Following the Government’s instruction on the 20th March 2020, we have temporarily closed our doors to protect our guests and our team from the risk of spreading COVID-19.
We are now focussing on the immediate future and how we can continue to make people’s day during the temporary closure of our pubs. We will also ensure that we are well prepared to re-open when it is right to do so.
“There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.”
Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.
Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.
The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged. And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.
So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
It was deep in Dorset’s rolling hills and patchwork fields, in 1777, that local farmer Charles Hall brewed our first beer. A union of the Hall & Woodhouse families soon followed and the story of Badger beer had begun.
