More at Pub bans carthorse

A Tyneside pub has banned one of its regulars – a 12-year-old carthorse. Peggy [the horse] first wandered inside the Alexandra Hotel in Jarrow when owner Pete Dolan, 62, forgot to tether her properly while he popped in for a pint.

She quickly found she loved supping John Smith’s bitter and chomping down beef crisps with the other drinkers, reports the Daily Mirror.

But now the pub has had a makeover and landlady Jackie Gray, 46, has decided hoofprints are no longer welcome on the new carpets.
