The Black Horse

Clevedon Lane, CLAPTON-IN-GORDANO, Bristol, BS20 7RH

The bars on one of the windows of this attractive, whitewashed inn near Bristol are a reminder that the Black Horse's Snug Bar was once the village lock-up. Built in the 14th century, the pub features low beams, flagstone floors, wooden settles, and old guns above the big open fireplace. Real ales served straight from the barrel include local Butcombe Bitter and Bath Ales Gem, whilst cider fans will rejoice at the sight of Thatchers Heritage. The small kitchen in this listed building limits its output to traditional pub food served at lunchtimes only (Monday to Saturday). The repertoire includes hot and cold filled baguettes and rolls; home-made soup of the day; daily specials, and classics like lamb hot pot and corned beef hash. The large rear garden includes a children's play area, and there's a separate family room.
