Square Meal Review of The Black Horse ?

If you want to dodge the tourist throng, this typical Victorian pub on Whitby’s handsome, cobbled Church Street is a little gem. The frosted windows are etched with the word ‘bar’, while the central serving area straddles both front and back rooms – it’s thought to be one of the first in the UK, brought from the US to discourage customers from manhandling the serving girls. The front bar and the tap room are simply furnished with stools, pub tables and wooden benches. Timothy Taylor Landlord is on draught (along with a changing guest beer), and the food is as simple as it gets without a kitchen: three Yorkshire cheeses served with bread and chutney, cold marinated seafood salad, olives and nuts. Twelve varieties of the finest English snuff are also on offer for those who fancy a sniff. Handy accommodation, too.
