The Black Horse's co-owners Pam and Terry Gillman said the mural, by artist Lee Stroble, was proving to be a hit at the pub, which is hosting a 'beer and banger festival' to mark the national day today (Sunday, April 23).

Mrs Gillman said Mr Stoble's had done several other murals on the same wall at the pub, and they were always popular.

She said: 'He's done a really great job of it and it's had an fantastic response.

'Every time the wall goes white before he puts up a new one I get so many calls and emails from people asking what's going to go there next - they're that popular.'
