History abounds in Bridgnorth which was once one of the busiest shipping ports in Europe. Many taverns opened and closed along the ancient road leading to Low Town and the one that survived was The Black Horse.

The first recorded landlord was a Thomas Maun in 1796. The local drink was mild heavy dark and strong. The average gravity was 1006, the second highest in England.

As an inn The Black Horse was permitted to remain open as long as there was a bed empty and stabling to the lawful traveller. The Black Horse Hotel is a free house and has seen many changes over the past 196+ years but remains as originally intended a social and convivial centre of the community.

We offer live entertainment bands and artists every Saturday evening. There is plenty of parking at the rear of the pub and English Chinese and Indian Restaurant / Takeaways are only 2 minutes walk from the pub.
