The Black Horse

Welcome to The Black Horse

The Black Horse in Taunton is a wonderful traditional 19th Century English Coaching Inn. Situated very close to Somerset county cricket ground and in the heart of Taunton.
You'll find the warmest of welcomes at The Black Horse, as well as a great range of beers, wines and spirits.
Retaining the history of a coaching inn, The Black Horse offers lovely accommodation too. Great for business, short breaks and cricket fans, our location puts us top of many lists as well as comfort and service.
