Pluckley's original Black Horse was sited in a rather modest building amongst a nest of cottages to the west of the church. The premises which now bear the same name began life as a farmhouse surrounded its own moat (long since filled in but partly discernible in places) for many years, then it was the bailiff's house from which the Dering estate was managed. Licensees claim to suffer the annoyance and frustration of having items of property, mainly clothing, go mysteriously missing for long periods. Not always their own property, sometimes articles belonging to customers or members of staff. Despite rigorous searches the missing items elude discovery and then, when all hope of seeing them again has virtually gone, they suddenly reappear in locations in which their presence could not have gone unnoticed. Some liken these incidents to the work of poltergeist but to lay the blame on the shoulders of a ghostly prankster would be more befitting. The atmosphere in the Black Horse is peaceful and benign and the activities of who or what-ever is responsible for the going and coming of these items present no more than an inconvenience to which the more frequent victims eventually become immune. It would be quite legitimate to regard the perpetrator as a 'ghost' but so far no efforts have been made to add this resident prankster to the village's spectral list and so give the pub 'haunted' status.
