This historic public house has stood proudly for over 300 years situated in the popular area of The Golden Triangle in Norwich.


Built in 1714 it has constantly traded as a public house and has always been called The Black Horse.

The large garden was a bowling green for many years during the Victorian and Edwardian era and there are photos of the bowlers with their amazing moustaches in the pub!  

Throughout the pub are historic photos of days gone by in Norwich. From the great flood, building of the Cathedral and the original Norwich Market. 



About The Black Horse

The Black Horse has a relaxed bar area serving a range of craft beer, real ales, cocktails, bottled beers and a fine wines is complemented by a restaurant-style dining area that’s perfect for everything from a quiet Sunday roast to a large family gathering. 


Welcoming to canine companions, The Black Horse also boasts a beautiful terrace and garden, making it the perfect year-round pub for all occasions.
