Re- visited for our tea. It was like a ghost town,no welcoming coal fire and they don't serve food anymore . Cold and unwelcoming. What a real shame.

Went there for a pint..didnt realise it had closed previously. It was now recently reopened..only one other customer there...staff hanging around doing nothing. This used to be a great pub serving good food...it has hit rock bottom now...needs a new owner willing to invest and do a refurb and get good food going...such a shame.

There has been a change in Landlords at the Black Horse, Cronton, Widnes and they are not currently doing food. There are apparently plans for 2016 , suggest you telephone ahead to see if they Have started doing food before going.

We havent visited the Black Horse as a family for some years but decided to give it a try this weekend for an anniversary meal. We were really surprised to find the place quiet for a sunny Saturday evening. There was a couple of tables in the bar area taken with people eating. We booked a table so were seated... More
