When a horse walks into a bar, they are usually asked: ‘Why the long face?’
Fortunately Creamy the White Hart didn’t have to deal with the pointless questions and was served straight away.
Owner Lisa Bond took Creamy into the aptly named White Hart, before treating him to a packet of salt and vinegar crisps.
And his surprising visit was blessed by two local vicars and landlord William Saunders, who helped feed him at the pub in Ludgvan, Penzance, Cornwall.
Lisa, 42, said: ‘We usually stop at a pub for a drink on most rides and as the White Hart is on our route we got to know the landlord quite well.
‘The pub was being blessed after being refurbished and the landlord and my mum suggested that Creamy could come in for a packet of crisps
‘It does sound like the start of a joke but Creamy would do anything for food and nothing fazes him and he took his place between the vicars.’
While the pub’s regulars were delighted to see Creamy, he did leave the White Hart on a slightly sour note.
‘It’s just a shame he disgraced himself on the way out by eating the hanging basket,’ Lisa said.
