Why we love it

You’re looking at one of the liveliest joints in town. Seriously, if you worry that you’re missing out on something, turn away now. As a buzzy home of live music, top notch drinks and quality eats, The Dark Horse plays host to all sorts of goings-on every single day of the week. So don’t miss out: whether you fancy kicking back with a drink or heading out for a dance, you can guarantee to find a good time right here.

Above all things, The Dark Horse are big on craft beers. The keg and cask lines are always stocking the latest beers (from your IPAs to milk stouts) from the best breweries across the UK and beyond, with samples available if you’re not sure what to reach for. In the fridges you’ll find even more picks from the team alongside some rare cans and special bottles. Is if this doesn’t show enough dedication to our favourite libation, the gang even put on plenty of beer related events including tap takeovers and the legendary Moseley Craft Beer Festival.

When it comes to food, The Dark Horse serve up much more than your usual pub club. They’ve taken an American style of cooking and collided it with classic British dishes and ingredients to create a menu with an unrivalled selection of eats. Part of their menu is dedicated to slow-cooked meats that have been prepared in Louis, their very own smoker imported from the US. We’re talking 10 hour smoked beef brisket, 4.5 hour smoked pork ribs, and ½ chickens marinated in a fiery sauce.If you’re looking for the full American experience, we recommend getting your mitts on the Pittmaster’s Platter: a sharer for two that includes all the meats and a generous portion of baby roast potatoes and a choice of texas caviar, citrus quinoa or (our personal favourite) BBQ Beans. Elsewhere, the menu packs a whole host of inspired small plates, mammoth burgers and tasty ‘za.

If you needed an excuse to go for a drink tonight, this is it.


Get there Sunday afternoon for a pint and some live music at their Jazz Club.
Order the Pittmaster's Burger if you're a serious meat lover.
The Moseley Pizza is a real winner.
