“Sheer Awesomness”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Amazing restaurant, with a brewery, with wonderful views in the stunning Magaliesberg. Amazing Pizza and micro-brewery beers! Yippee.

The only downside is that it is in the middle of nowhere but that's not really a downside.

The ambiance is festive, the seating is creative and relaxed, catering for family and friends or more romantic afternoons

Must book!

“Brilliant Beer, Good food, Fun friends”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A very busy establishment worth your while! Visited the brewery with a group of fun loving Harley friends for a quick stop and ended up there for the entire afternoon, drinking the amazing beers, eating the great food under the shade of the pecan trees shade on the large couches. What an experience and can seriously reccomend it. We will surely be back soon......

“Great beer with an amazing view”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We went to black horse when it first opened and then again on its 1st anniversary. It has definitely grown in many ways. It was very busy and we didn't even think to book. We got the last table available, way outside on the end, but it was a stroke of luck because we had a great view over the landscape with many black horses roaming in the farmland.

The beer is excellent, with a great lager and wonderful red Irish ale. Sadly the ribs were of poor quality (tough and not much meat) but the chicken was apparently decent. But not a great food destination. Gilroys does better on the food front. But the beer does make up for it.

All in all, it is a great venue and lovely location. There were several birthday parties there and the big couches seem like a nice option for that.
