Wonderful old pub, great selection of beers ciders and ales. Prices were a bit steep compared to others in the area, but it's such a lovely place, it makes up for it. Staff were super, even when it was very busy.

A CAMRA Good beer guide entry. A Robinson's outlet with guest ales is a very rare find. Four Robbies (incl Old Tom winter ale at 8.5%..years ago it was only sold in 1/3 pint glasses..because one pint got you drunk!) plus five guest ales and a real cider. Jorvic had a pint of Lakeland Gold at 4.4% from Lakeland. Madge however did not like any of the lagers and had a Pepsi. Lovely pub, super architecture. Four downstairs rooms plus upstair function room. Mixed clientel.

Black Horse Old world charm. Ornate. Grade 2 listed classic heritage pub. Beer & banter. Detailed review: Situated at a stone throw distance from Harris museum and bang opposite the back entrance of St. George's shopping centre, Black horse is a vintage gem among the pubs in Preston. What greets one are the fascinating interiors of mosaic floor, tiled bar with a plethora of options and the walls which are adorned with pictures of old Preston. The front two rooms have basic but comfortable seating setup in an early nineteenth century world feel with the decor, lead bordered thick glass windows and added charm thanks to the real log fires. The music is played via a jukebox and there is no specific genre which adds a good surprise element. The hospitality is courteous and there are always some regulars at any point of time. Limited/no food options but it is surrounded by plenty of fast food joints. This place is ideal for beer and banter as life goes by. Worth a visit.
