The Black Horse, Black Horse Hill, West Kirby, in 2003. A local landmark, logically named. I don't think they would change the name of the road to 'Collingwood Hill' as easily, though...

I wonder why "Hilltop" as it is only halfway up & there is a house by that name at the top!

Wha's wrong with the original name, the Black Horse, for goodness sake? Not snobby enough?? (same deal same pub name, in Wallasey Village...?)

I am sick of these philistines, changing pub names at their own whim, don't they have ay respect for history, nor know that in England, people for 100s of years have NAVIGATED by Pub names? "Go past the Black Horse and take the next left, then turn right at the Rose & Crown, then left at the Fox & Hounds"!!
(Ok I made that up but I bet you there there is somewhere in England that would work!)

It was originally called 'The Chesnut Horse' though nobody on here short of a search engine would know that!

The Black Horse/Collingwood/Viking is going to re-open as part of the Leaf chain of cafes which has three cafes in Liverpool

The Chestnut Horse/Black Horse/Hilltop/Collingwood/Viking has just opened as Leaf West Kirby.

Are we having a sweepstake for its next name? I'm voting for "The Confusion Free House" (think about it).
