Description: The Black Horse Inn is a hidden Cotswold gem. It is still a real pub not a restaurant in the country. Customers are always welcome for just a drink and a chat with our locals. Our food is all home made from locally sourced ingredients. We prepare the food in small batches to ensure that quality is kept high. This does mean that some popular dishes may not be available during busy periods while we cook some more. Our meals are wholesome pub fare and we are renowned for our hearty portions. Our traditional Sunday lunches are very popular and advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment,

After several years of disastrous management the BH is now back in the hands of the old owners, thank goodness. A "free house" serving excellent real ales and traditional home cooked food is a rarity nowadays, now everywhere else has "gone gastro". In these days of sameness the Black Horse is a one off, well worth a visit if you can find it, I suggest you phone first if you want to eat , and always closed on Mondays. Having said that my experience was memorable , excellent beer and very friendly locals.

I cannot express in words how wonderful it is to see the Black Horse back in capable hands. The atmosphere was back instantly and I am looking forward to eating there once again. For all of those people that experienced such an awful time over the last year, please come back and see how fantastic our village pub is. ☺

Good to be back in the BH with good beer, good company and the buzz of a proper old Cotswold inn. Well done to Julie and David for getting the place back on track !

Pub back open with David and Julie at the helm. Friday was opening night and heaving is the word. Sadly no food For a while till they get on their feet again. A great English pub... and we wish them well and know we all will benefit from the old school black horse.

Walking in the area on a cold bright Sunday, we stopped here for lunch at 1pm. Empty other than the barman. We asked for a coffee to warm up, but were told they didn't serve coffee. So, seeing the menu on the blackboard we asked about food and were told that there was no food until Wednesday! We ordered a drink and asked for nuts. We had the only packet of nuts in the place, drank up and left. Another 3 miles to the lovely pub in Sheepscombe where we were made very welcome and enjoyed a superb Sunday roast. So, ignore the website and TripAdvisor details and avoid!
