 Service Levels Very Vey Poor
Well here goes.
1. The staff are rude and unpleasant. (Make you feel as if you are putting them out by asking to be served)
2. Inexperienced.
3. Lack Leadership
4. Staffing Levels VERY POOR !!
I am making these comments due to various incidents that I witnessed, in fact Faulty Towers springs to mind.
I have always used this pub to meet both friends and business associates NOT ANYMORE!!

 The greatest pub in the boro
The Clevland Huntsman what more can i say except its the finest pub in the boro. just had a 20.000 beer garden built out the back that should attract the female's by the thousands. Make sure if you go ther to were your best rig out as it is a very classy place otherwise you will be stopped at the door by big tommy the italian gangster if your wearing a kappa trackie.

 Unwelcoming manager
this manager of the Black horse does not care about regular clientele! He regulary shuts public lounge to his regulars and tells them it is private party,is this allowed they should surely use function room on first floor?

What a pint this pub sells. The price is fantastic and if you go on a good day and you are really lucky, you might be able to hear strange noises coming from the cellar!!

 Superb night out
Get yourself in there about 9:30pm to avoid the immense queues and you will not be dissapointed.
Since the re-decoration inside the queues have almost trippled which can cause dissapointment for some, however once inside you will see why so many want to get in

With two parts each with its own music it is a great venue for dance music lovers alike.

No longer the dark and grungy place it used to be.

 Visions - Disgraceful!
Recently my band played a gig at visions and I was apauled and upset at the attitude of the staff and state of the building. When we first organised the gig we were told it would be free as it was a charity event, 2 hours before we were about to start we were told it was going to cost us 200, we had already sold all our tickets and had set up it was impossible for us to cancel and we were put in a very difficult position. After we started we were told that everyone had to leave due to one induvidual cracking a window (I don't think i saw one unbroken window when I arrived) luckily a parent arranged a compramise plus is we were paying 200 for the room it should be the landladys respocibility to ensure the secruity of the building, not ours. Some over eighteens were being wrongly accused of purchasing alcohol for miors without any proof, the whole time we were there the staff and landlady treated us as if we were vandals when the band and 99.9% of the audience had done absoultely nothing whatsoever. The landlady has told us that she is going to inform every local venue about us so we never play again when the bands and 99.9% of the audience had done absoultely nothing whatsoever. With our buisness there would have been about seven people in the building (may I add the locals were being served after legal hours, but of course they weren't teenagers so they can't have been doing wrong!). The whole state of the building was appauling there were holes in the roof, a tree growing through the centre of the building and I have already mentioned the windows, the room was not worth 200 at all! All in all I would not recomend this place to anyone, the staff are rude and disrispectful and the building is a mess!

 the rebirth of our local?
isnt it about time someone started to care about our local pub. our pub is importent to our community. a pub is to go and enjoy a drink or two and socielise with friends. not wallk in and be verbaly abused by the landlord.we need speciel nights put on like kareoke ect. because every other pub i know does just that. we all need a change of circumstances within our local and many not if all would agree. its about time the thorntree is reborn. i would also like to mention that the column ive just read regarding mr and mrs pickering would be a good idea.
