Black Horse Devizes


Black Horse

Bath Road, Devizes, SN10 2AU

The Black Horse is set on the banks of the stunning Kennet & Avon canal, in the market town of Devizes and just a few meters from the top of the famous Caen Hill flight making the pub popular with locals and tourists to the area.  The World Heritage site of Avebury and the Ancient stones are within close proximity as is Chippenham, Marlborough and Pewsey


Trading Potential

Set in an idyllic location on the Avon and Kennet canal just outside the historic market town of Devizes and home to Wadworth Brewery the Black Horse has a well established local and tourist trade for both food and drink.  There remains opportunity to increase the existing business through marketing and growing the skittles, darts and crib teams that currently use the pub.  The Black Horse is a strong supporter of charity and has raised significant money for local causes.
