DJ Reviews for The Black Horse

Helpful information for DJs and entertainers visiting The Black Horse provided by trusted members of

29/02/2016Function RoomGround

Permanent wooden dancefloor

No sound limiter

Some useable in-house lighting effects

No air conditioning

No stage area

Haze/smoke prohibited

No effective blackout

PARKING: Large car parks both to the left and right sides of the building. Ample parking.

ACCESS: There are two ways to load in. First is through the main bar downstairs and up the internal staircase to the function room. Other is to park in the left side car park and up the external stone staircase (this is by far the easiest as its a clear run without guests milling around).

FACILITIES: The function room is set off the upstairs bar. Its not huge but a small to medium rig will fit quite comfortably. Sockets are a long way away from the setup area though so take extensions. Also, because of the socket location it is easy for guests to switch the kit off - though this would have to be done on purpose - if left alone there should be no problems. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2m or less

STAFF: Very good. Gave us hog roast and water. We have no complaints :)

POWER PROVISION: Long extensions (up to 25m) required

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Dont attempt to load kit into this venue while guests are present. Even using the outside loading route you have to cut through the upstairs terrace door and guests can easily congregate here obstructing access. Not too much of a problem for loading in - but load out can be a trial when drunken guests are using the doorway as a smoking shelter."

29/02/2016The ConservatoryGround

No sound limiter

Blinds/curtains provided

Air conditioned

No useable in-house lighting effects

No specific dancefloor area

No stage area

Haze/smoke prohibited

PARKING: Excellent parking. Large car park to the front of the building, parking to the sides and a further large car park at the top of the hill within the grounds of the venue.

ACCESS: Park directly next to the double french doors of the conservatory load the kit in through them to the middle of the conservatory. Flat and level. Once unloaded move vehicle to one of the car parks. Return for load out.

FACILITIES: The centre rear of the conservatory is ideal for setup. There is no stage but a fair amount of room for a medium / standard sized rig. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m

STAFF: All very friendly and polite.

POWER PROVISION: Plenty of 13A sockets in close proximity to setup area

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Great venue for all types of occasion. The conservatory is ideal for wedding parties / receptions as it is very elegantly decorated and leas into the main bar with tables and seating areas for the guests. BBQ buffet is often set up outside on nice days."
