Black Horse brings welcome signs of the U.K. to an otherwise Anglo-deprived Park Slope. The pub’s considerable space has been whipped into tip-top shape, its façade cloaked in regal black, its broad brick walls lined with portraits of latter-day Brit-rockers, its flatscreens ready to turn ho-hum Saturday mornings into live-football dates. A lengthy bar lit by low-hanging bulbs and shaded by a sturdy line of craft-brews on tap rests beneath a ceiling steep enough to allow for generous drafts. A back kitchen serves as locals' only source for weekend bangers and mash; the oily brunch menu is perfect for absorbing the excesses of Friday nights.
