Intimate little pub of real character, right in the heart of Whitby’s harbour-side old town. Its old shop-style front bar has a back-fitting, dado panelling, counter-front and bench seating which could all date back to the pub’s late Victorian rebuilding. A hatch to the old staircase-hall behind was probably for off-sales. The back ‘Vaults’, its servery, and even the striking leaded ‘Black Horse Vaults’ window, however, derive from an extensive 1986 refit by the Leeds brewers Tetley’s – modern creations, but consciously respectful of the pub’s historic importance. The Black Horse was, in fact, badged by Tetley's as one of their select group of 'Heritage Inns'.
