The Black Horse Tavern is a historic building at 175 North Cove Road in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. Built c. 1712 by John Burrows, this 2-1/2 story wood frame structure is one of few early 18th-century buildings still standing in Connecticut. It is located just west of the site of the historic Fort Saybrook, the major fortification of the 17th-century Saybrook Colony. The building served as a tavern providing services to passing travelers until 1924, and is now a private residence.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
