Keep them dogs under control !14th Century inn located in a rural setting but just 2 miles from Junction 19 of the M5. Well frequented by locals the Black Horse was formerly a jail and is the epitome of an old English Inn. Old guns hanging from the ceiling, flagstone floors, settles and superb traditional ales served straight from the cask and they serve good food as well. - Perfect !

Blue Flame

West End, Nailsea,Somerset BS48 4DE Tel: 01275 856910
Back to top MAP Real Fire Oh yes ! Nominated by Brian Dufty
A Smashin' Pint !If you're looking for an armchair and a thatched roof then avoid the Blue Flame. It's very basic and could really do with a lick of paint here and there, but if you want the perfect pint, served straight from the cask, then this is the place for you. Expect to find some hops in the bottom of your glass and for the local farmers to invite you to join their game of cards. No grated cheese on a cob here - a full slab of cheddar and some tangy onion.
