See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This 14th century building was once the Bailiffs House for Sir Henry Dering's estate which was granted to him by King Charles II for his help in the civil war. the shape of the windows was degreed by Dering because he had escaped through one of this type when he was persued by the roundheads. The pub stands in an outstanding position, for Pluckley is allegedly the most haunted village in England. 14 ghosts from the Civil War period appear regularly in the streets, churchyard and houses. The Black Horse itself is believed to be haunted by 4 ghosts of the Dering family. Featured in the "Darling buds of May" TV series
