The Black Horse


The Black Horse

Reigate Road, Hookwood, Nr Gatwick, Surrey, RH6 0HU

A historic Sussex country pub

Situated close to Gatwick Airport on Reigate Road (the main London to Brighton road in Georgian England), the Black Horse is so named because of the tradition of highwaymen riding black horses, most notably Dick Turpin, on his horse Black Bess.

‘A short history of Hookwood’ claims that the Black Horse was built by the roadside specifically to provide hospitality for the Prince Regent as he and his entourage went back and forward to Brighton in the early 19th century. But these days the pub is more famously known for the quality of the food on offer and its range of award-winning Badger Beers from Dorset. With plenty of parking, a large garden and a traditional oak-beamed and flagstone interior, the Black Horse is a pub for all seasons.
