Regional Manager's Thoughts

The pub that plays host to a large influx of football fans on weekends and has also built a reputation for hosting regular live music and karaoke. I am looking for a dynamic publican to take the Black Horse to the next level. Ideally someone who is a great all-rounder; a great host, good with entertainment and able to offer wholesome pub food.
