Just returned from the Black Horse , under new management. tasty veggie burger with delicious chips and lovely slaw. Really good service, clear design and, of course, great views. a glass of pinot grigio, Italien 2013 , very clean taste. Two really sweet rabbits in the garden.

I have been waiting for this pub to reopen for about 6 months, after moving to the area and people telling me about the amazing views from the pub. I didn't realise it had a bad reputation previously which was good because I had no pre conceived ideas. We ordered off the, slightly expensive, small menu and were pleased that... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review, it means so much to us to know that people are enjoying our pub. We aim to keep our ales in perfect condition which does unfortunately mean only having a small selection during the quieter winter months to ensure that nothing is sat in the lines for very long, however now that...

Had a drink at the newly-reopened Black Horse and it was a far cry from the last time we went in. Staff were smiling and helpful, it was clean and well presented - even the previously dingy ladies loos were tastefully redone (could do with a mirror though). Saw some interesting veggie/vegan things on the menu so will pop back... More

We stumbled across the Black Horse while exploring the eccentric lanes of Amberley. What a gem. it has just been taken over by new owners after years of decline. They have tastefully decorated and in progress of bringing the pub back from the brink of no return. The pub is small but full of character with a conservatory overlooking a... More

First, the history. As a customer, on and off, of the Black Horse for twenty years, I think I can give an informed opinion of this pub and the many (usually justified) bad reviews it had. This pub's good points (beautiful location, large garden, amazing view) only served to aid it's bad points (small, very out of date kitchen, often... More

This is a very traditional building set in a lovely Cotswold Village. It has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and clearly will be very a very successful venture for the new owners judging by the exceptionally high standard they have already set. The views from the garden and the lovely conservatory are outstanding and I can't imagine... More
