I missed my bus and was stuck in Cavan in heavy rain. Never been here before I want into the closest pub and that was the Black horse inn.

Smoked haddock deep fried in batter was overcooked and unappetising. The crumbed plaice fillet was not fresh, unseasoned and the veg and potato was cold.... More
