“Cinema Meal”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

we went in before the cinema. They accommodated us well and got us in and out in good time. The food varies, sometimes good, sometimes seems to be bagged.

“Fabulous food if a little pricey”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

More of a food pub than a drinking pub. Always busy which shows they are getting it right. Really friendly staff, good range of beers and very extensive menu but a little pricey. Food however was amazing. You need to book a table. We will return for sure.

“GOOD ATMOSPHERE, GOOD FOOD!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had been to a matinee show at the Capitol nearby and on the spur popped in to the Black Jug for a meal.
For those that may not be familiar with the Black Jug, it's one of the old pubs in Horsham that has retained its character with wood panelling, a log fire and old wooden table and chairs. A very comfortable atmosphere.
Although only 5.30 p.m., food was being served. there was a good variety of food on the menu, nothing fancy or exotic, just good quality pub food, well cooked and nicely presented. A small downside was that the venison for the main course had been over char-grilled for my liking, but that aside we enjoyed our meal. Washed down with a nice bottle of wine, it was a nice end to an enjoyable afternoon out. Importantly too, there were no nasty surprises when the bill came!

“A great place to spend an evening with company”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I have been here quite a few times as this was right outside my office. This place is kind of hard to define. Yes it has great beers but it is not exactly a drinking pub. I'm not sure why because the beers here are first class if you want good bitter. If its shorts you are after then this place has a fantastic variety of whisky here, mouth watering to taste, some eye watering to pay for! But really there is too little space for standing here and drinking. There are a lot of tables here and they want you to sit down and eat. Do so, the food is good if a little over-priced for what it is. I have two criticisms really of the food. The choice is too extensive for one thing - I'd prefer fewer dishes done better - and the other thing is that there is little choice at all if you are vegetarian. That said though I have never had anything that I felt was short on quality, nothing that failed to deliver or made me wish I'd ordered something else. The prices are a little on the high side though for what it is. But then there are rarely empty spaces and they are popular for business lunches too. The staff are good and knowledgeable of their product. The decor is good and reflects the age of the place and the old spirit of the town without being phoney. The smell and warmth of the fire is inviting on a cold evening. Beginning to wish I was there as I recall all of this.
